Chas­ing ju­nior glory at Na­tion­als

North Coast Weekender - - Sport -

JOON­DALUP ten­pin bowlers will test their prow­ess against the best in the coun­try at the ju­nior na­tional cham­pi­onships this week.

A team of seven girls and six boys aged from 13 to 17 are in Syd­ney un­til April 22 as they look to claim glory for WA at Ten­pin City in Lid­combe.

The side will also com­pete in three days of Pres­i­dent Shield com­pe­ti­tion, which is a tour­na­ment be­tween state teams and can lead to na­tional se­lec­tion.

Round­ing off a busy in­ter­state jour­ney will be the pres­ti­gious Ju­nior Mas­ters, in which lo­cal bowlers Emily McKel­lar and Cal­lum Borck have earned a place af­ter win­ning the WA Mas­ters in March.

The team won a $1000 grant for the trip to NSW af­ter scor­ing the most votes in a monthly com­pe­ti­tion run by a ma­jor bank.
