Greater Trail bowlers had strong performances at the Junior Zones 5-Pin Bowling qualifier at Juniper Lanes in Cranbrook earlier this month.

The Glenmerry Bowl girl’s team made up of Nicole Smith, Taylor Servatius, MacLean Keraiff and Eliza Dawson won gold at the zones racking up 2,975 total pins to beat out Cranbrook by almost 300 pins. The Kootenay zone total was the highest score among all six zones in the province.

Dawson led the team with 829 pins and a 227.25 average, while Smith bowled the highest single-game score of all competitors with a 252.

Meanwhile, Glenmerry Bowl’s Jacob Plett bowled his way into the Senior Boys provincial championship after winning gold at the singles zones with a four-game total of 1,027. It is Plett’s third journey to the provincials, and last year he bowled as a member of the B.C. Youth Team that competed in the Canadian Youth 5-Pin Bowling Challenge in Hamilton, Ont.

Beaver Valley Lanes bowler Jordan Bakken also qualified for Bantam Boys winning gold with a 694 total.

The Trail Junior Boys team missed qualifying but picked up bronze at the zones, while the Boys Bantam team also came third.

The Glenmerry Bowl’s Junior Girls Team will accompany Plett and Bakken to the Provincial 5-Pin Bowling championship in Surrey and Langley Feb. 28.
