AMONG the country's best in the fast lanes, four talented Lockyer Valley kingpins shone brightly.

Rachael DeBerg, Jamie Haupt, Karnie Taylor and Kristel Redinger made the trip to AMF Moonah, in Tasmania, as part of the Queensland team competing in the 2014 National Tenpin Bowling Championship for Persons with a disability last week.

The competition was held from June 4-14.

Striking it with the best, Karnie Taylor proved a worthy force for competitors with scores soaring above her average.

With an average of 131, Karnie posted scores 60 above average to almost crack the 200 mark.

Her fifth time competing, Karnie's efforts were rewarded with a trophy for the highest female game in the Cole Cup restricted.

"I almost got 200," she said.

"I got a 194 on Tuesday and a 195 on Wednesday.

"I'm shocked, because I didn't expect it. I thought I wouldn't get it because there were a lot of bowlers there this year."

All four Lockyer Valley bowlers also achieved a significant feat, qualifying for the restricted masters competition, which involves the top 16 bowlers in Australia.

The four bowlers put in dominant performances in the restricted masters with Karnie just missing out on a top-three finish.

She received a bronze medal for the A-grade singles and A-grade all events at the nationals.
