Wiley working for winnings
TWELVE-year-old Brittanny Wiley is so passionate about lawn bowls she works to help fund her trips away to competitions.
And she is a force to be reckoned with and when she competes in senior and ladies’ competitions, her opponents take her seriously.
Achievements for 2012 include placing as silver medallist at the state titles for under-15 singles, being the youngest in the district to go into the District Champion of Champions, winning the U14 singles in the Bundaberg Classic Carnival and receiving two ‘8’ badges.
Shewas also the winner of the Keith Einam Memorial Shield and selected for the second time in the Queensland U18 squad.
Wiley plays in senior carnivals, junior/senior days and junior carnivals, and has been attending the Bowls Queensland State Titles for the last four years.
As a secondary student, she is now eligible to play in the All School Challenge, which will see her compete all over Queensland.
“It costs quite a lot to go away to compete so I sell daylilies with the help of my grandmother and great grandmother to raise money,” Wiley said.
GREAT FUTURE: 2012 has been a great year on the bowling green for 12-year-old Brittanny Wiley of Mundubbera who's determined to improve her game even more next year.
