Benalla juniors compete at regional event

Jack Berry, Alex Briggs ,Thomas Pearson and Jordy McAndrew were invited to compete as a composite team with Goulburn Murray Juniors.

Being an under-18 competition, the boys being 13 and 11 looked up against it, but dispatched a mature Bendigo team in the opening game 12-9.

They then played next two games on another green, which was faster took some adjustment, but they were still competitive till the end.

Big thanks to Naomi and David Cartwright for guidance to enable the boys this experience.

Also the board of Benalla Bowls Club who provided accommodation on the night before.

Benalla Bus lines in supporting the boys and Richard Baulch for safely getting the boys to Daylesford and home.

Benalla Bowls Club is determined to grow our numbers of juniors with possibility of school programs or any juniors interested trying their hand at bowls. For more information, phone Ian Hobson on 0488 226 325.
