The Glenmerry Bowl Junior Girls team accomplished something that hasn’t been done in two decades when they won gold at the B.C. 5-Pin Bowling championship in Surrey on Saturday.
“They won by 19 pins, which is pretty close, it came down to the last frame,” said Glenmerry Bowl’s Ron Sandnes. “That’s the first junior team that we’ve had win since 1995, 20 years. So it’s really a big step for them.”
Coached by Laurie Flack, the team of Taylor Servatius, Nicole Smith, Maclean Keraiff, and Eliza Dawson bowled lights out throwing a combined total of 2,958 pins to beat out Port Coquitlam Bowl with 2,939. The team now advances to the National championship in Oshawa and Toronto on May 1-4.
Glenmerry Bowl’s Jacob Plett missed bronze by three pins in senior boys singles, while Castlegar bowler Taylor Stoushnow took silver in senior girls. Beaver Valley Lanes bowler Jordan Bakken won bronze in Bantam boys singles, while Ashley Rubner captured bronze in Junior girls singles.
