Good things come to those who wait.
The Xavier Bowling Team ended what had been a rather uneventful 2006 with a bang as the pair of Carl Lim and J. Em Ang took home the bronze medal at the doubles event of the 14th National Youth Championships. Taking on the country’s best bowlers aged 23 and below, the keglers were unfazed by their slow start and came to a roaring finish. Carl bowled games of 201, 151, 179, 182, 201 and 188 to total 1102 pinfalls (183 average) while J. Em regained his old form, bowling lines of 225, 220, 222, 181, 220 and 223to total the day’s third best series of 1291 pinfalls (215 average) to come up with a combined total of 2393, good enough for third. The pair’s bronze medal finish was actually a historic one as this turned out to be Xavier’s best finish in this national tournament since the school began participating in 2002.
J. Em also did the school proud by placing in the top 10 in the individual all-events standings to qualify for the masters event, which is again, another first for the team. Other members of the bowling team also competed in the event and they too performed creditably. The other keglers were Timothy Hung,Stewart Ngo, Markyn Kho and guest bowler Daryl Uy.
With 2006 ending with such a flourish, the team certainly is looking for more conquests in 2007 to make the school proud. Lucet Lux!
