Aaron has the goods
PINT-SIZED 13-year-old Aaron Teys, who's been amazing the bowls world since he burst onto the scene three years ago, has beaten some of the district's best senior players to become Evans Heads major singles champion.
The major singles is the blue ribbon event of any club and for this schoolkid, who won't be 14 until next December, to do it is an incredible achievement.
He also was in the team that won this year's Evans Head fours championship. Apart from that he is this year's NRDBA junior singles, pairs and fours champion.
For three seasons, ever since he was 11, Aaron's been playing in the Evans Head No 1 pennant side which won successive district No 1 flags last year and the previous year, and went on from district success to win last year's zone pennant.
Aaron took the junior bowls world by storm in 2004 when he started in the game at Ballina and won the district and zone junior singles and the district junior fours. The next year he was playing No 1 pennants with Evans Head and was named the NRDBA Junior Bowler of the Year, winning the district junior singles, pairs and fours and the zone junior pairs.
Last year he added to that season's No 1 district and zone pennants by winning the Evans Head club minor singles, the district junior singles and fours and the Coca-Cola Classic junior pairs. All this and he's only 13!
A North Coast bowler who played with Steve Glasson at Moorooka when he was a junior says that Aaron at 13 is better than what Glasson was at 14.
That's some recommendation.
