Pair of Lady Techster Bowlers Impress at Junior Gold Championships

July 27, 2017

RUSTON, La.- Incoming freshman bowlers, Ashley Channell and Kaitlyn Eder competed at the Junior Gold Championships in Cleveland, Ohio, last week. Out of 840 competitors in the U20 division, Eder finished in 17th place, posting an average of 198.23 pins, while Channell recorded an average of 188.96, good for 58th place.

Watching these girls compete in this highly competitive tournament was something special," head coach Matt Nantais said. "Their performance at this event reinforces the fact that the future is bright for our program. I am looking forward to this upcoming season."

Both Channell and Eder faced tough conditions throughout, as the first four qualifying rounds took place on different lane patterns that were unknown to the bowlers. After the first four rounds, the field was cut to 120 bowlers followed by five games on another undisclosed pattern before another cut was made down to 64 competitors. Both Channel and Eder made the proper adjustments to finish among the top 64.
