Southern Metropolitan Regional Lawn Bowls Championship

Continuing on their streak after winning Kingston Division, the McKinnon Lawn Bowls team has won the 2016 Southern Metropolitan Finals!

The team played a series of intense matches against Melbourne High, Leibler Yavneh College and the major opponent, Dromana College. In a close game against rivals Dromana, winds favoured the team as their skip, Nicholas Whittaker, landed a critical 3 points in the last end, cinching victory by 1 point.

With this result the McKinnon senior team of Nick Whittaker (skipper), James Robertshaw, Phoebe Ponsford and Maille Todd went on become regional champions.

The team remains undefeated in their march toward the State title to be played at Darebin City Bowls Club on Tuesday 11th October.

Congratulations must go to the Junior team who also played very competitively in the SMR finals.
