Bowlers medal at nationals

A pair of members from the Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club reached the podium at the Junior and Under 25 Canadian Championships in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

Pricilla Westlake came ever-so-close to retaining her women's Under 25 singles title, losing a hard-fought 21-19 battle to Carah Webster in an all-B.C. match-up on Tuesday.

Trailing 15-7 at one point, Westlake stormed back to take a 19-18 lead before Webster answered with three of her own for the narrow victory. Webster will now represent Canada at the 2018 World Youth Championships in Gold Coast, Australia next February.

Meanwhile, Emma Boyd has her first-ever medal at Nationals, thanks to her third-place finish in junior girls' singles.

Boyd found her draw game to apply early pressure and went on to defeat Alberta's Alex Gallagher. Earlier, the two-time reigning B.C. junior champion fell 18-13 to Ontario's Baylee Van Steijn in the semi-finals.
