Final week of junior bowling before break

LAST week was the final Shoalhaven Strikers Juniors week of bowling for the term. 

The league will resume after the school holidays on July 18. 

There were few changes last week with Wolfe Sinclair-Thompson still in the lead after winning five points against Jayde Morris. 

Wolfe bowled games of 136, 133 and 143 and Jayde bowled 143, 132 and 129.

Jade’s first game was the one that stopped Wolfe from getting a seven-point victory.  

Kieran Berkovic took a seven-point win against the vacant team and he bowled the highest game and highest series for the night.

Kieran bowled 159, 175 and 132 for a 466 series.  

Morgan Knight picked up five points with his games of 92, 75 and 93 against the absent Samual Berryman. 

The ladder at the end of the week sits at Wolfe 95.5, Kieran 86.5, Samual 66, Jayde 62 and Morgan 60. 

The league average for the week was 128. 

There are still vacancies in this league, so to be part of the fun come along on Friday at 4.15pm.

The last day of the school term and last day of bowling for the term saw most of the Shoalhaven Junior Piranha League bowlers absent. 

Only Jeremy Carrig arrived to bowl and he bowled some awesome games of 118, 126 and 127 and took the full seven points. 

The league average score this week rose to 123. 

The Piranha ladder stands with Levi on 111, Alex on 82, Jeremy on 78 and Lachlan on 59. 

The junior development group is a coaching clinic for children over seven-years-old and held every Friday at 5pm during school terms. 

The cost is $6 per child for one hour of coaching and bowling fun. 

The group gets to learn the skills needed to bowl strikes and not just roll a ball down a lane. 

Coaching is conducted in a fun way where the children learn the skills of ten pin bowling to enable them to progress into one of the competitive and fun junior bowling leagues.

The skills these juniors are learning is showing more and more with their games improving each week, and they are also learning  that attitude and sportsmanship are just as important as consistent scores and averages. 

Tom Carrig and Robert Berkovic were thrilled with their different coach this week. 

Tom bowled a good game of 45.

They were not using bumpers so keeping the ball out of the gutters was a challenge. 

Robert bowled 68 in the first game and seems to be getting fairly consistent with his scores.

These scores will improve as their skills improve. 

Junior development resumes on July 18.
