Vernon bowlers double up at zones

Trio of Lincoln Lanes teams qualify for B.C. youth doubles championships in the Cariboo

Three Vernon bowling teams have punched tickets to the B.C. youth doubles championships April 6 at Cariboo Lanes in Williams Lake.

The three teams from Lincoln Lanes qualified at the zone finals in Kelowna.

Bowlers have been bowling in the qualifying round since January in each of the youth divisions (bantam, junior, senior). Bowlers were paired up with a partner (highest average with lowest average, second highest with second lowest, etc.) and after four weeks, the top-three doubles teams pins over average advanced to the zone finals, which was a three-game, pins over average tournament.

Lukas Rachwalski and Payton Lizee won gold in the bantam (8-to-10-years-old) division finishing 199 pins over average. The pair are coached by Trevor Rachwalski. The Lincoln Lanes team of Taya Adams and Jayden Adams won bronze at 61 pins over average.
