Wi­ley work­ing for win­nings

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

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.
