Local players from the Fort Saskatchewan Youth Bowling League had a big weekend.
On Sunday (Dec.9), the junior and senior teams competed in Sherwood Park. The senior team came in second place and was only 30 points away from first. The junior team came in fourth place and were a single point away from third.
"That's incredibly close because one pin is worth at least two points," said coach Carol Kaehn. "If they had of just hit one more pin they would have had third place."
Eva White had a great day for the senior team. She bowled a 302 in one of the games and a 241 in another. Her sister Maryah scored a 215 and a 217.
"Eva has bowled several 300s but that's still a very good score for a youth bowler."
There's one competition per month in the Youth Travel League spread over six months.
The senior team is sitting at fifth place in the standings and the junior team is in fourth.
