The overall titles were split this year between the powerhouses Raffles Institution (RI) and Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) at the Schools National A Division Bowling Championships held at Orchid Country Club on Tuesday.

RI clinched the boys' title, while ACJC retained the girls' title. ACJC had won both titles last year, while RI did the double in 2012.

RI's Joey Yeo, 17, was the biggest individual winner, helping her team win the quartet event to seal the all-events title. She had won the singles and doubles competitions last week.

However, the Year 5 student's efforts were not enough to bring the title back to RI. Said the national bowler: "I know that we all tried our best, and I'm very appreciative of my team-mates' efforts despite the fact that we did not win."

Said ACJC's captain Tracey Lin, 17: "We won last year and we wanted to carry the good results forward. Although we didn't manage to win both championships again, we've put in a lot of hard work and effort."
