The Trail Senior Girls Doubles Team from Glenmerry Bowl came oh so close to capturing gold at the BC Youth 5-Pin Bowling Championships at Scottsdale Lanes in Surrey earlier this month.
After 10 games in the round robin, Trail bowlers Erika Kivi and Taylor Servatius were tied for second, one point behind the first-place Nanaimo team, but deadlocked with Prince George with six points each.
The silver medal came down to a tie-breaker and a one-game roll off. The Trail tandem came through with a terrific showing, beating the Prince George team from Black Diamond Bowl by 15 pins to win the silver medal.
Five Trail youth bowlers competed at the event with Chris Lemieux and Gary Parrell placing sixth in the Junior Boys Doubles, and Thomas Plett finishing sixth in the Senior Boys Singles in Port Coquitlam.
The Glenmerry Bowl silver-medalists, Kivi and Servatius, are coached by Rauno Kivi.
The winning teams and singles advance to the National Finals in Ottawa, May 5-7.
