2021 NSW Country Championships – Tenpin Bowling

Posted on 25 Feb 2021

2021 NSW Country Championships – Tenpin Bowling

Orange Tenpin Bowl runs the NSW Country Tenpin Bowling Championships every year.  This year Emily Morris (year 8) made the trip to Orange to compete.  During these games Emily scored her PB for game with 189 (which she has since beaten already)  and her PB series with her first 500 series.  Those that qualified were then able to enter the Restricted Masters on Monday 25 starting early at 8.30am.  The Restricted Masters involves bowling 8 games and points are awarded for pinfall over average. 

As the last games were bowled and the judges decided the winner, Emily waited anxiously for her final score and position.  The presentation was held and the announcement for 3rd place called, then 2nd place and Emily’s smile got wider and wider.  Finally it came down to the winner and with 1571 pins with pinfall the winner was Emily Morris!  She proudly walked to the presentation to receive her prize and to be named as the 2021 NSW Country Championships Champion.  Well done Emily, look forward to hearing how you do in your next competition in February with the ACT Championships.

Did you know that our principal was recently a guest on a live panel hosted by Will Anderson?  The Future Bright Panel spent time discussing whether or not the future is indeed bright and Kerrie, alongside some of her UC colleagues, spent some time discussing their professional and personal thoughts on this matter.  If you have a bit of spare time and  would like to know a bit more about Kerrie and her educational philosophies and values (or you just love Will Anderson and want to watch him 😊) then please follow this link…
