A Humboldt bowler has won a bronze medal while competing in Youth Bowl Nationals for Bantam Boys Singles. 

Chayton Currie, a 10-year-old bowler, travelled to Oshawa for the tournament, stating it was his first experience on a plane. 

Currie went up against bowlers from all across the country, playing against 11 bowlers in the over 400 competitors. 

The three-day tournament saw Currie finish the competition with a 193 average, with his highest score being 267. Currie played 16 games against 11 other provinces. 

Chayton was part of the Saskatchewan team, knocking out 5 out of 11 teams. 

His time at the tournament came to an end after striking out Northern Ontario for the bronze medal game, ending the game at 156 points. 

After the game came to the ceremony, explained Currie. 

“We stood up on the lanes and they gave us all medals. We did gift exchanges and we got a bunch of candy.”

Currie also received a cheque of $145 for placing third but does not plan on spending it any time soon.
