Loren DeJong, a Kimball native, bowled his first ever perfect game on Wednesday at the Village Bowling Center in Mitchell.

DeJong's previous high game on the season was 237. "I can't believe it myself," DeJong said.

Dejong finished the night with a 651 series, which is also a season high.

"I was so nervous up there," he said. "It was unbelievable. Something I'll remember for a lifetime."
