It was a big day for Spe­cial Olympics P.E.I.’s ten­pin bowl­ing team on Wed­nes­day.

That is when the four-mem­ber squad, coached by Ann Kilby of Tyne Val­ley, won the bronze medal in the team com­pe­ti­tion of the Spe­cial Olympics Canada 2018 bowl­ing cham­pi­onships. The team com­pe­ti­tion took place at the Credit Union Place lanes in Sum­mer­side on Tues­day.

“We are su­per proud of the team,” said Genna Phe­lan, chef de mis­sion with Team P.E.I. “They had a great win­ter of train­ing, and it proves hard work pays off for them.”

Team mem­bers Wayne Dy­ment of Sum­mer­side, Paul Phillips of Sum­mer­side, Jenna Smith of Eller­slie and Kevin Ram­say of Tyne Val­ley all bowled three games as part of the team com­pe­ti­tion.

“It’s a great way to start the com­pe­ti­tion,” added Phe­lan. “They com­peted in dou­bles (Thurs­day), and will bowl in sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day.”

The medal pre­sen­ta­tions will take place at Credit Union Place on Satur­day at 9 a.m. Fivepin
