Martin shines in in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham teenage ten­pin bowl­ing sen­sa­tion So­phie Martin has fin­ished in the world’s top 10 ju­nior fe­male play­ers af­ter in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion in France.

Martin placed 10th over­all in a girls’ sin­gles sec­tion of World Ju­nior Bowl­ing Cham­pi­onships while com­pet­ing in an Aus­tralian team.

The Wim­mera Sports Star of the Year cre­ated a stir early in the cham­pi­onships by fin­ish­ing in the top three of her 24player sec­tion with a score of 1316 from six games.

But seven bowlers com­pet­ing in squad B the fol­low­ing day over­took her score, plac­ing her out of a fi­nals equa­tion and push­ing her down the rank­ings. Ul­ti­mately she was only 58 points short of play­ing in the fi­nals.

Martin also part­nered Amy Shoe­smith in dou­bles and the pair fin­ished mid­field.

Across all com­pe­ti­tion dur­ing the cham­pi­onships Martin fin­ished 19th.
