Young guns make strides on greens
A group of talented youngsters who proved themselves against the best in the state has Burnett Bowls Club excited about its future going into the Christmas break.
This year was one of the biggest in the history junior bowls in Bundaberg with several young superstars really cementing their places as future superstars in the sport.
Kepnock State High School young gun Kyle Franks had a breakthrough year, leading his team to third position in the Queensland State Schools Finals and standing out as one of the best performers in the competition.
He was just one Bundaberg junior to put in a strong performance at the state championships.
In the Queensland State Junior Championships on the Sunshine Coast, ten Bundaberg players competed for state honours with three getting through to the quarter finals.
Kellie Kemp and Cassandra and Bolivia Millerick all made it through to the quarters but Cassandra was the only one who made it to the semi-finals.
Franks repeated his effort at the state titles at the Pine Rivers Junior Pairs and Singles Classic when he was runner-up in the open boys and teamed with Gayndah’s Danny McColm in the open pairs.
The players will compete for the Burnett Bowls Club top honours at the presentation night next Wednesday.
