Tyler Murchie won a silver medal in the senior boys division, his 971 match including a tournament-high game of 258. Also in that division were Kain Stewart (fifth) and Aidan Nettleton (sixth).

Bronze medallists from Duncan Lanes included Amber Kelly in the junior girls division and Samantha Gullens in senior girls. Dawn Miller placed sixth in senior girls.

Mackenzie Thompson just missed bronze in the junior boys division, finishing five pins back of third place. Kyle Murchie was sixth and Brandon Clark was eighth.

Kelly also competed in the Canadian Tenpin Federation provincial tournament, also at McCurdy Bowling Centre on March 11 and 12, taking bronze in junior girls. Her teammate Sydney Greenwood also claimed bronze in bantam girls.
