Girls go to state finals
TWELVE to 3 and 18-3. That is an awesome win!

“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.
