FACULTY: Business

NICKNAME: El

PROUDEST SPORTING ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE: Winning the Australian junior nationals

AMBITIONS: To finish my degree in America where I would have the chance to bowl collegiately

HOW MANY AUG’S HAVE YOU PLAYED (INCLUDING 2015): 2015 will be my first AUG

WHEN DID YOU START PLAYING? 2004

WHAT GOT YOU STARTED PLAYING? I use to have to watch mum and dad bowl each week so rather than watching them I asked if I could try and I’ve loved it since

FAVOURITE PLAYER GROWING UP? Patrick Allen

FAVOURITE ALLEY? AMF Chadstone

WOULD YOU PREFER TO BE THE UNDERDOG OR THE FAVOURITE? I used to love being an underdog however as of late I’ve had to grow into being the favourite however I do prefer that because you feel even before you start everyone else has pressure on them because they expect you to do well which is pressure they are putting on themselves

BEFORE A GAME I ALWAYS... Walking around socialising as much as I can because I’m not really a big believer in a set routine, socialising helps me stay relaxed

WHEN I’M NOT AT UNI, COMPETING OR TRAINING I AM...Generally watching Netflix or with my mates either from bowling or university

FUN FACT: I’m spending 40 grand on a degree but really I just want to be a train driver
