WARRACKNABEAL golf bowler Edna Anderson has been crowned the North Wimmera Bowls Division 60 and over ladies singles champion for the 2016-17 season. 

Host club, Warracknabeal Bowling Club, welcomed a small field for the crowning championship. 

Anderson has dominated at bowls since 2011 and currently holds the state championship title. 

Spectators were treated to a tight, competitive bowling final as Anderson and fellow club member Isobel Davison battled it out. Anderson pushed on and completed the 21-20 victory. 

Anderson was recently selected to represent Victoria in the state 60 and over squad in Perth later this month. 

Brim’s Gail Arnold claimed the ladies novice singles champion after defeating Warracknabeal Golf’s Joan Clarke. 

Four lady bowlers, including members from Rainbow and Minyip competed for the title held at Beulah Bowling Club. 

Arnold finished an easy 21-13 semi-final win and went on to take on Clarke in the final. 

The final played out in a similar fashion with Arnold completing another strong win, 21-13.  

Arnold will now represent the North Wimmera at the next level  in November. The Wimmera host venue is yet to be confirmed.
