May 22, 2019 – MEMBERS’ STATEMENTS – Brooke Goulet – Mr. Andrew Micklefield (Rossmere):
I rise today to honour 18-year-old Rossmere resident Brooke Goulet, who has just returned from the Youth Bowl Canadian nationals senior girls five-pin bowling championships in Oshawa, Ontario, where she tied for gold and brought home a silver medal.
As part of team Manitoba, Brooke played 29 games in three days of bowling excitement, competing against high-level bowlers from every province twice each before clinching gold for Manitoba.
When asked about her bowling journey, Brooke recalls the support of numerous friends and coaches, but notes with particular gratitude her grandmother, who first introduced her to bowling at Rossmere Lanes, as well as her parents, Garry and Debbie Goulet, who continued to support her bowling ambitions, which earlier this month brought Brooke to the national stage.
At just 18 years old, Brooke also plays on the Manitoba Women’s Junior Hockey League, where her team, the Polar Ice, finished first in the MWJHL last season. She is also enrolled at the University of Manitoba, where she aspires to study kinesiology. Beyond athletic and academic pursuits, Brooke works and volunteers in several Rossmere seniors’ homes.
Madam Speaker, I invite members of this Chamber to join me in congratulating Brooke Goulet for the exemplary way she serves our community, the way she represents our province and for bringing home the gold at the Youth Bowl Canadian nationals earlier this month.
