Glenmerry Bowlers golden; earn berths in provincials

Glenmerry Bowl’s Thomas Plett and Megan Fowler earn berth in 5-pin provincial championship

A pair of Glenmerry Bowl 5-pin bowlers are off to the provincials after shooting lights out at the Youth Bowl Canada singles Kootenay zone finals earlier this month.

Thomas Plett of Trail won the Senior Boys event by bowling a combined score of 974 to qualify, while Megan Fowler rolled an impressive score of 1,189 to claim the Senior Girls title and a trip to the provincials.

Only the zone gold-medal winners qualify for the B.C. 5-pin bowling championship, but more Greater Trail competitors had good results.

In Junior Boys, Jordan Bakken of Beaver Valley Lanes earned a silver, just nine points behind winner Zach Tremblay of Castlegar, while Glenmerry Bowl’s Chris Lemieux won bronze. Taylor Servatius of Glenmerry Bowl also just missed the centre podium and a provincial berth in Junior Girls, capturing silver just seven points back of gold-medalist Tessa Portman of Cranbrook.

The Provincial Finals goes on March 3-4 at Capri Valley Lanes in Kelowna and Lincoln Lanes in Vernon. New this year will be a double round robin event at the Provincial Finals for both singles and teams. Also new this year, like the Bantam Division, the junior and senior division teams will now also be two player teams.

The National Championships will take place on May 5-7 in Regina, Sask.

In addition, two Glenmerry bowling teams found success at the Youth Games last month. The Glenmerry Bowl team of Mack Pretty, Gray Parrell, Chris Lemieux, Mike Miller and coach Trevor Orlando won gold, while Riley Aikman, Steven Ross, Eliza Dawson, Shayna Pellizzari, and coach Tim Flack earned bronze.
