The mixed team started better than they have in a while, but fell off and struggled over the last day and a half of competition. They collected only 12 of their total 46 points over that last half of qualifying.
The male single struggled all week with his best day on day 2 (averaging 231) but fell shy of a 225 average overall. It was a disappointing week for him overall, finishing last in the qualifying round.
The female single on the other hand was the NWT's highlight of the week. After averaging 258 over the first 2 days (20 games) and leading the event for the first 2 days, she fell to 5th in the qualifying round. She made the stepladder with an average of 244. She fought hard in the first round of the stepladder, but unfortunately a number of headpins caused her to come up short.
Overall it was a good week, full of fun and excitement. Including our first stepladder birth in as long as I can remember.
Good Job Kim Bailey, Good Job!
Next year the Open is being held in Calgary, I for one cannot wait to improve on this outing!
