Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club youth player Bailey Meti has returned with medals from the Australian Under-18 Bowls Championships.
The Championships were hosted by Victoria’s Bendigo Bowls Club from October 2 to 4, with Bailey bowling for Team NSW.
After two days of competition, it came down to the NSW Blues and the Queensland Maroons to determine which state would walk away as this year’s national youth champions and secure the Robert Middleton Trophy.
Sadly, for the Blues, the Maroons proved untouchable, taking the trophy as well as the boys’ and girls’ overall trophies.
Bailey had an excellent run through the competition in the Boys’ Triples and Fours, where he was a part of the NSW team that took the gold medal in both events, according to Mr Domenic Favata of Bowls Australia.
