A group of Wagga tenpin bowlers have returned home with a swag of medals from a competition in Orange last week.
Eleven tenpin bowlers did the city proud at the Orange Disability Championships at Orange Tenpin Bowling Centre last weekend.
There were over 320 entries from bowlers from places such as ACT, Rooty Hill, South Coast, Gosford and Orange and the Wagga team enjoyed great success.
The contingent from Wagga play in a social league every Saturday morning and secretary-treasurer Wendy Smith said the group exceeded all expectations with their medal haul.
"They did really, really well," Smith said.
"Some of them had never played in a competitive tournament before and have caught the bug now. They had a really good time.
"All but one of them got a medal and she came fifth and just missed out. They did a lot better than we expected."
Tony Arrowsmith led the way with a 519 series to win gold in the singles Male Classic. He also finished second in the all events Male Classic.
Tim St Clair finished equal first in male A grade with a 496 series. He grabbed third in the A grade all events.
Erica Woodward won the A grade female all events category, a combined score over three events, with a series score of 1256. Her score would have also won the Female Classic all events.
Woodward also finished third in the A grade female singles.
Amy Rennick finished first in female B grade singles with a 425 series. That score would have also won A grade.
Anthony and Erica Woodward finished second in the A grade doubles, with Arrowsmith and Len Robinson third.
Arrowsmith, Erica Woodward and Jacqui Meyers finished second in the open trios, while Peter Smith, Anthony and Erica Woodward finished third.
Leonie McLean, Len Robinson and Anita Manning finished third in the C grade trios.
