North American Challenge - Team Canada Sept 19 - Oct 1, 2016 Vancouver, BC
The North American Challenge is held every two years featuring two Canadian teams of five bowlers vs two American teams. This year Lucas Caldwell (PLBC) competed for Canada which won six of the seven trophies. Lucas is lying prone on the right side of the trophies and is the first Canadian bowler on the left watching the head.
Lucas Caldwell wins the Canadian Under 25 Men's Championship in Vancouver on August 8, 2016
It was an exciting match up for the men’s gold medal game between Lucas Caldwell of Peterborough (Ontario) and Brandon Watson of Regina (Saskatchewan). Exceptional shot making and back and forth ends had the crowd on the edge of their seats. Keeping the tension high right down to the last bowls, Caldwell, the only non-Saskatchewan player in the men’s finals, took the single shot that earned him the 2016 Under 25 Champion title for a 21-20 win.
Their championship titles earn Caldwell and Westlake the nomination as Canada’s entry to the 2017 World Junior Championships hosted in Queensland, Australia next March.
