Cowichan high school bowling program wraps season

Briana Wright cleans up at awards event

Briana Wright celebrated what coach Bob Linde called a “breakthrough season” as the Cowichan Valley High School Bowling Program wrapped up its 15th season with an awards night last Monday.

“The longtime five-pinner showed her skills were not limited to the small ball,” Linde commented of Wright, who received several honours for her dominance at Duncan Lanes.

Wright’s team, Bowl-Tastic, which also included Kyle Murchie and Levi White, won the CVHSBP league title this year, beating the runner-up Titans team of Brandon Clark, Dylan Marsden and Gavin Murchie. Bowl-Tastic also captured the playoff championship.

From an individual perspective, Wright also claimed the Ladies Triple Crown with a high single of 199, high series of 477 and high average of 129.61. Not done there, Wright posted the ladies high over average single of plus-73, and was the most improved lady at plus-26.61. She capped it all off at the CVHSBP awards by receiving her second-consecutive Bertha Linde Scholarship.

Away from Duncan Lanes, Wright also won a silver medal at the YBC fivepin provincials and a bronze at the CTF tenpin provincials a week later.

The one CVHSBP ladies’ award Wright didn’t take home last week was ladies high over average series, which went to Paige Novak’s plus-118.

The Denis Linde Scholarship went to Grade 8 bowler Logan Harvey, who edged out last year’s scholarship winner Aden Nettleton to take his first men’s high single title with 225. Harvey also posted the men’s high average of 166.81, but Nettleton spoiled his Triple Crown bid with a season high series of 560, two points better than Harvey’s.

Dylan Marsden took home the other three men’s awards with a high over average single of plus-78, high over average series of plus-104 and most-improved mark of plus 15.91.

Sixteen students took part in the program this year, representing schools from Lake Cowichan to Mill Bay. Over the 15 years of the program, $6,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Lorne Winship and Pacific Homes sponsored the awards, while Kevin Miller and A&W provided Teen Combo Meals throughout the season for the Bowler of the Week. Parents, grandparents and support workers also made the program possible this season.


The Bowl-Tastic team of Kyle Murchie, Briana Wright and Levi White won both the league and playoff championships in the Cowichan Valley High School Bowling Program this year. Wright also collected a boatload of individual awards, including the Bertha Linde Scholarship for the second year in a row. (Submitted)
