Portia Eldaun returned home from the B.C. Youth Bowling Provincial Championships with plenty to brag about.

With the help of her coach Bob Stockey, Portia won at a competition held in Fruitvale, B.C. earlier this year, allowing her to represent the East Kootenay zone at provincials. Portia came out on top in the bantam girl singles division, with an average score of 207. She played five games during the competition, which took place in Vernon, B.C. in March, and finished with a total score of 1,037.

Portia went on to compete at nationals in Vancouver, where she placed fourth.
