After five intense days of bowling, Sports School alumnae occupied eight places in the Top 10 of the Women’s Open All-Events; seven progressed into the nine-woman Masters Finals. By the end of the 10-game Finals, Jazreel Tan Shi Hua, Charlene Lim Jia Yi and Iliya Syamim Muhammad Azni stood above the rest to move into the Stepladder Finals.

The Youth Boys Masters Stepladders Finals was also an all-Sports School affair. Secondary 4 student-athlete Lim Ding Xi garnered a sizable 121-pinfall lead over his closest rivals alumnus Leong Weng Hong (2,266 pinfalls) and Secondary 3’s George Yin Xu (2,264 pinfalls) after 10 games in the Masters Finals. However, strong and consistent bowling from Weng Hong saw him win all three games in the Stepladder Finals to clinch the Youth Boys Masters trophy in the under-21 age-group.

Student-athletes and alumni also ranked amongst the top 3 in three other events – Men’s Open Quartet, and Women’s Open Doubles and Quartet.
