Seven points are all that separated Brittany Dacosta and a trip to the national championships.

The Langley bowler, who plays out of Willowbrook Lanes, bowled a 1,238 to place second in the senior girls category.

Dacosta had games of 246, 320, 236, 215 and 221.

Kaitlyn Milsted, of Vernon’s Lincoln Lanes,, took gold with a 1,245.

Dacosta won gold at junior provincials in 2008.

The bowlers were competing at the B.C. 5 Pin 4 Steps to Stardom youth bowling provincial championships, which were co-hosted by Willowbook Lanes and Clover Lanes, on Saturday.

Altogether, 264 athletes and coaches took part.

Another Willowbrook bowler, Liam Arnold, finished fifth in the bantam boys division.

The B.C. champs will represent the province at nationals in Newfoundland.
