Singapore Sports School’s Bowling Academy ended the National Schools “B” Division Bowling Championships with a bang on 9 March 2017 at Temask Club, bagging the Overall Championship title in both gender categories. The last time this was achieved was in 2014.
The 24th National Schools Tenpin Bowling Championships for “B” Division commenced on the 27 February with the Singles event. The boys made a promising start in the Singles event with three student-athletes finishing among the top 5: Owen Wong Wen Fei in 2nd, Leong Weng Hong in 3rd and Kieran Tan Wei Zhong in 5th. The pairing of Nu’man Syahmi Yusri and Xavier Teo Jun Hao in the Doubles yielded a gold medal, while Bryen Yee Zong Yen and Javier Lim Qian came in close in 3rd place. The Boys achieved a similar finishing in the Team event.
In the Girls event, Alena Dang Thanh Nhi topped a 144-strong field with 1,260 pinfalls in six games in the Singles event. Her closest competitor, Georgia Kuok from Methodist Girls’ School, finished 39 pinfalls behind. Sports School’s next best finisher was Jean Tow Huan Yi in 5th place. Jean picked up momentum in the Doubles event, partnering Pascal Ching Min-Fon to a bronze medal. The Girls then powered on to a 1-2 finish in the Team event.
The All-Events ranking, derived from a combination of scores from the Singles, Doubles and Team events, saw our boys claiming the top six positions, while Jean and Pascal came in 2nd and 3rd in the Girls category.
It was a strong finish by Jean, Pascal and Syahmi who finished on 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Girls and Boys Masters Finals on 11 March.
