Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

Horowhenua’s Sam An­der­son, 16, is one of 23 young bowlers who have qual­i­fied to play in the na­tional fi­nal of the 41st New Zealand In­door Bowls Ju­nior Sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion.

It will be held on Satur­day, Au­gust 25 at the North Welling­ton In­door Bowls As­so­ci­a­tion Hall, Onepoto Do­main, Ti­tahi Bay, North Welling­ton, start­ing at 10am.

The de­fend­ing cham­pion is Matthew Far­quhar, 17, from the Lake Taupo Club.

He is joined by five oth­ers, in­clud­ing Sam An­der­son, in the Paterson Tro­phy In­ter-District zone fi­nals.

An­der­son won the Sil­ver Medal at the NZ Sec­ondary School Pairs last year.

He was in the North­ern Zone Ju­nior Rep­re­sen­ta­tives 2014-2016 and last year was cap­tain of the South­ern Zone ju­nior reps when Horowhenua was moved into the South­ern Zone.

A plate event will be held for the non-qual­i­fiers in the main cham­pi­onship and the win­ner will re­ceive the Mor­ri­son Plate.

To qual­ify for the cham­pi­onships play­ers must be un­der the age of 18 on March 1 and have won their district ju­nior sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion.

Twenty-three of the 35 dis­tricts in New Zealand have en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion.

At the con­clu­sion of the sin­gles tour­na­ment the North­ern and South­ern Zone ju­nior teams will be named.

They will com­pete in the North­ern ver­sus South­ern Zone com­pe­ti­tion for the McLach­lan Ju­nior Chal­lenge Tro­phy that was won by the North­ern Zone last year.
