Set them up, and Ben Hendrickson will knock them down.
Hendrickson, a youth five-pin bowler from Nechako Lanes, is one of the best in Canada in his sport. When he was a first-year senior (ages 15 to 19) he rolled to the B.C. singles championship in the division and won the bronze medal at nationals in a roll-off against a six-time national medalist. Hendrickson, now 18, was back at provincials for senior boys singles in early March and finished third in a match-play format.
Hendrickson also represented B.C. in last season’s Canadian Youth Challenge Championship with partner Corbin Taylor. Hendrickson has been averaging 260 in his youth and adult leagues this season and has already broken 400 for a high-single game – not bad considering 450 is perfection.
