Bronzed war­rior

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

MORT­GAGE bro­ker Brad Scott has al­ready won a bronze medal for his in­ter­na­tional sport­ing ef­forts, but that's only made him hun­grier to win as he trains for the 2016 Par­a­lympics.

SHE’S the pres­i­dent of the Yokine Archery Club and has com­peted as a mem­ber of the State Archery Team, now Carlisle res­i­dent Court­ney Cowl­ing can add a bronze medal to her list of achieve­ments.

Cowl­ing com­peted at the 2015 Na­tional Archery Cham­pi­onships held in Mor­well, Vic­to­ria af­ter the Town of Vic­to­ria Park do­nated par­tial funds for travel and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

This year marks the sec­ond time Cowl­ing has suc­cess­fully had a grant from the Town, af­ter rep­re­sent­ing the Archery Aus­tralia Team at the World Youth Archery Cham­pi­onships in China.

“Re­ceiv­ing this do­na­tion from the Town really helps to take some of the stress out of get­ting to th­ese events, given that I am a stu­dent ath­lete com­pet­ing in archery, it’s a fully self-funded sport,” Cowl­ing said.

The Town’s Do­na­tion Pro­gram en­ables not-for-profit com­mu­nity groups, schools and in­di­vid­u­als to make pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity.

The In­di­vid­ual Do­na­tion awarded to Cowl­ing is granted to in­di­vid­u­als se­lected by a sport­ing body to rep­re­sent the State at a na­tional level and re­quires fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to at­tend.

Town of Vic­to­ria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughn said he was proud the Town’s do­na­tion pro­gram con­trib­uted to Cowl­ing’s suc­cess at the Na­tional Cham­pi­onships.

Court­ney Cowl­ing.
