Class of 2021-2022

The Henson Bowling Academy has selected its fifth class of a fine group of youth bowlers who have already demonstrated expertise on the lanes. This hand-picked group has been chosen for several reasons. First and foremost, they all have a very strong desire to compete at the highest levels of collegiate and/or professional bowling. The role of the Academy is to develop them into the players they envision themselves to be. Each one of them possesses a strong set of commendable personal characteristics such as good sportsmanship, honesty, and poise as well as a healthy work ethic which is required to be successful in this program and beyond.

Name: Nick Maliwesky
Hometown: Powell, OH
School: Bishop Watterson High School
Quote: “All the awards I’ve won are very important to me, but qualifying for Junior Gold (at age 9 in the U12 division) is the most exciting so far. My biggest goal is to become a pro bowler and compete against the best bowlers in the world. One of my other goals is to compete for Junior Team USA.”

Name: Carter Street
Hometown: Dublin, OH
School: Olentangy Liberty High School
Quote: “I started bowling when I was 3 years old, but by the time I was 9 I started bowling two handed.  A few people told me that if I wanted to be good I needed to stop bowling two handed.  I switched back to one hand, but I just didn’t like it as much so I switched back to two hands.  By the summer of 2014, I bowled my first 300 game at age 10.”





Name: Madison Strouse
Hometown: Marysville, OH
School: Early College (Marysville) High School
Quote: “Eighth grade was one of the worst years ever because I fractured my leg playing sports.  That was a major setback for me as a bowler because when I started bowling again a few months later I was struggling to remember what to do and I wanted to give up.  But I have a fire inside of me telling me to push harder even if it gets tough.  I want to bowl when I get to college and after college.”





Name: Anthony Swanson
Hometown: Des Plaines, IL
(Future) School: Evanston Township High School
Quote: “I hope that developing my mental game would help me be more calm and be able to think through challenging situations, whether it be in the bright lights of TV or shooting a 300 game.  I hope that the HBA will get me on the right track to becoming a PBA member.”
