Conn, 18, and a resident of Crestwood, is one of the nation’s top-ranked junior bowlers and a member of the Bellarmine University bowling team. In addition to being one of the top bowlers around, Conn is unique in that he drills his own balls in a garage at his house. “It really helps because I can really personalize it so the ball comes off my hand better,” Conn said.
