Sil­ver for young Ai­den

Geraldton Guardian - - SPORT - Ai­den McAuliffe

His­tory-mak­ing teenager Ai­den McAuliffe is still bowl­ing along in lawn bowls.

Ai­den, 14, was a mem­ber of the WA fours which won a sil­ver medal in the na­tional un­der-18 cham­pi­onships in Queens­land on Fri­day.

Two years ago, he teamed with Vince Knight to win the pairs cham­pi­onship at Mullewa and also in the Batavia Bowl­ing League.

The Year 9 Na­gle Catholic Col­lege stu­dent bowls for Mullewa.

“Ai­den took up bowls be­cause his grand­par­ents, his un­cle and I play it,” dad An­thony McAuliffe said.

“He con­cen­trated on cricket last year but is back with the bowls and from what we’ve been told, he’s got a good fu­ture.

“He’ll be back play­ing with Mullewa next week­end — pro­vided he gets picked.”

Cory Day from Carnar­von and Ash­ton Hag­boon from Gooma­lling were also in the fours side.
