Kain Stewart

Kain Stewart is almost always better than average.

The Cowichan Valley High School Bowling Program mainstay has been the frequent winner of the A&W Bowler of the Week award this season.

“I just always try to get over my average for all my three games,’’ said Stewart, 16, a Grade 11 student at Cowichan Secondary School.

He’s currently the longest-serving member of the 10-pin league at Duncan Lanes.

“He’s well-known as a five-pin bowler here in the valley but I’ve offered 10-pin to him and he’s come over and he’s flourished quite well,’’ said program coordinator Bob Linde.

Stewart has fallen just short of the 200 mark in singles three times this season, including a 199 where he left a pin up on the last shot.

“He was frustrated he didn’t get his 200 game which he has done in the past and I’m sure he’s going to do it once again in the future,’’ said Linde.

“I’ve got fairly good at 10-pin,’’ said Stewart.

“I still prefer five-pin, though. It’s more fun. I’ve just been doing it for a longer period of time.’’

He once was on a five-pin team that came third in provincials.

“We didn’t quite finish first, but we still got a medal,’’ said Stewart.
