School lawn bowls regional finals

18 October 2023

Ms JODIE HARRISON (Charlestown—Minister for Women, Minister for Seniors, and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault)— On Monday 16 October, the Warners Bay High School Lawn Bowls Team competed at the lawn bowls regional finals at New Lambton Bowling Club.

The team, consisting of Ami, Mia, Ned and Alby, had a great day out as they put their skills to the test against other school teams from around the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Lower Hunter regions. In the first round, Warners Bay went head to head with Belmont High.

Belmont prevailed after a hard-fought competition, which ended up with a score of 6-4.

The WBHS side didn't let this deter them, and even though they went down 6-3 against Glendale Technical High School in round two, they finished up the day with an impressive 7-4 win against the eventual competition champs, Rutherford High.

Since WBHS was the only team to beat the championship Rutherford side, I'd say they did pretty well indeed! A big congratulations to Ami, Mia, Ned and Alby, to the teachers and staff who supported them on the day and in the lead-up, and to all their competitors.
