TWELVE to 3 and 18-3. That is an awe­some win!

Dy­namic duo Emily Shep­pard and Brit­tany Wi­ley, from Mun­dub­bera, proved too strong at the Bowls Queens­land All Schools Cup fi­nal.

“How good is this? It was so much fun and we couldn’t have gone any bet­ter,” Emily said.

“Bowls can be so much fun.

Brit­tany Wi­ley We are great mates and we make an awe­some team

“Peo­ple still think it’s an old person’s game. Not any­more, I love it.”

In this com­pe­ti­tion two play­ers make up a team and teams must have at least one non-bowler.

Mun­dub­bera’s Brit­tany Wi­ley is an ac­com­plished bowler and she part­nered Emily in the event.

“We are great mates and we make an awe­some team, it is amaz­ing how well we com­ple­mented each other’s game,” Brit­tany said.

“Emily has only been play­ing for a few weeks and she bowls like a cham­pion.”

This year bowls was in­tro­duced into pri­mary schools and it is a recog­nised Olympic and Com­mon­wealth Games sport.

The se­condary schools fi­nal was played on Thurs­day af­ter­noon at the Gayn­dah Bowls Club be­tween stu­dents from Mun­dub­bera State P1-10 and the Bur­nett Col­lege and with 20 dis­tricts in­volved this was a great achieve­ment for the North Bur­nett.

Emily and Brit­tany will now go to Pine Rivers Club on Septem­ber 20 and 21 to play the State Fi­nals All Schools Cup, with stu­dents from across Queens­land.

There are qual­i­fied coaches in Mun­dub­bera and Gayn­dah that could help get any­one started play­ing lawn bowls.
