EAST HANOVER, NJ — In addition to earning the Super Essex Conference title for the third consecutive season, the Livingston High School bowling team became the colonial division champions for the sixth time when the Lancers defeated their rival Seton Hall Prep on Thursday.

Sophomore Michael Liu, who rolled a perfect game and 17 strikes in a row earlier in the week, bowled a 279, 257 and 220 for a 756 series. According to coach Griff Hughes, this was not only the highest game and series in the tournament, but Liu was also the only bowler to reach the 700 mark, and he received trophies for both accomplishments.

When the Lancers competed in the NJSIAA State Sectional at Jersey Lanes in Linden on Friday, they finished in second place behind Union, which allows them to compete on Feb. 12 for the state championship. 

Liu also qualified for the state's Individual Tournament of Champions, to be played on Feb. 14. He is currently the No. 1 player on the list of 12 who qualified for this tournament.
