Collington earned a gold medal in his division, scoring above average in all seven games played, putting up a total of 242 pins above average. His first three rounds were his best, putting up 41, 79, and 56 pins above average. He finished top five for all males.

Fenneman earned silver in his division, putting 10 points above average overall and scoring above average in four of his seven games, including 40 over in the fifth game.

“They didn’t medal [as a team], but played very well,” said coach Jack Walsh. “I was very proud on how our Dawson Creek athletes adapted to new surroundings and new adventures.”
