Stettler’s Nicole Philpot wins senior girls’ at Provincial, headed to National

Stettler’s Nicole Philpot is headed to the Youth Bowl Canada (YBC) National Championship in Gatineau, Quebec in May this year.

Stettler’s Nicole Philpot is headed to the Youth Bowl Canada (YBC) National Championship in Gatineau, Quebec in May to represent Alberta in the senior girls’ category after winning the Youth Bowl Alberta Provincial this past weekend.

“I am very excited to win provincials this year, more excited than previous years because this is my last year of bowling in the youth category,” Nicole Philpot said. “This brings a lot of happy and sad emotions, although it is my last year, I am able to head to the nationals with my best friend, Alexander from Medicine Hat, who also won the provincials with me.”

For Philpot, heading to the nationals with her best friend is one of the best feelings.

“It is such a bittersweet ending as I am anxious to join the adults next year and I know that I will now have to work ever harder to keep up with them,” Philpot added. “The transition from the youth category where you know you are preforming at the top of your game, to now entering the adult level where you rightfully know that you need to amplify your game because they are twice as good, and probably have double the experience on the lanes than you have is honestly quite intimidating.”

Philpot said she is looking forward to this transition and learning opportunity as she continues to compete against the best that Alberta and Canada have to offer.
