Bowral Bowling Club pennant wrap up

Bowral bowlers celebrated a strong pennant season, with its three teams all claiming top three spots.

In grade three, Bowral had a excellent season being section winners and going on to win the zone five pennant flag when they defeated Springwood in the final played at Picton.

Bowral now move closer to a state pennant flag as this means they are in the last 16 of the state .

The Bowral side will travel to Dubbo to play in the state finals to be played on August 17, 18 and 19.

In the section matches the team skipper Michael Spong and his side finished in first place 

Skipper Michael Armstrong and his side finished in second place.

Skipper Stuart Rigg and his side finished in fourth place.

 This was a good record after the other sides used 15 skippers in their matches.

The features for Bowral during the season were being a settled team with selectors only making a couple of changes through the season

Grade six was the team expected to win this division.

They led from start to not quite the finish .

In the second last match of the season they did not enjoy the best of days being thumped by Taralga and this relegated them to second spot.

On the last day of the season they finished in style defeating Camden at home.

But Taralga held on to win the section.

Skipper Kevin Stafford and his side came in at first place.

Skipper David Coltman and his side came in second place 

Skipper Paul Leverett and his side finished in fourth place.

Considering 23 skippers were used in this division this was a great result for Bowral and they just missed the zone playoffs.

It was a mixed season for the grade seven team.

The selectors could not solve the issues in the first three matches when Bowral was anchored at the bottom of the table.

Then the players started to fulfil their potential and came home with a late run in the season to finish in third spot.

A welcome part of the season was when they defeated Camden RSL and Campbelltown City when they both held top spot on the ladder.

Skipper Gordon Lewis and his side finished in sixth position.

Skipper Dan Ticehurst and his side finished in seventh position 

Skipper Bob Edwards and his side finished in ninth position.

Considering 26 skippers used in this section by other clubs this was a good achievement after the dismal start.
