Incredible team: back from left, Trish McCormack, Elaine White, Faye Turner, Marj Pearson, Strzelecki Bowls Region president Pam Cameron, Glenda Trotman, Rosa James, Dot Jarvis, Gwen Williams, Joy Todd, front from left, Jo Runciman, Sue Symmons, Jenny Miller and Liz Beale celebrated Leongatha Division 1’s amazing win at the Strzelecki Bowls Region final on Tuesday, March 19.

FOLLOWING on from its South Gippsland Bowls Division 1 victory on March 5, the Leongatha Bowls Club became the Strzelecki Bowls Region Division 1 champions last Tuesday, March 19.
The team of 12 ladies competed against Drouin – the winners of the West Gippsland Division 1 competition.
The final was played at Tarwin Lower Bowls Club.
Leongatha won by 40 shots, not needing to complete the rinks before claiming the title.
There are 16 regions in the state and now Leongatha will head to Moama on May 6 to take on these regions in the State Regional Pennant Championships.
Three seasons ago, the Leongatha Division 1 team won its first South Gippsland division premiership in 37 years.
Winning the Strzelecki Bowls Region Division 1 final shows the extraordinary effort each member has contributed to the team.
On top of this incredible result, Leongatha Division 1 was sitting sixth on the pennant ladder just six weeks out from finals and managed to turn the season around to bring home wonderful success for the club.
Barnstorming into the finals, the team won both the Division and Region finals by a whopping 40 shots.
The Strzelecki Bowls Region is the top tier of governance comprising South Gippsland Division and West Gippsland Division and so to win the Strzelecki Bowls Region grand final is a great achievement.
