Illawarra's four NSW representatives all made the Australian under 18s squads after brilliant displays at the Australian Junior Championships in Tasmania.
Warilla BC twins Natalie and Samantha Noronha were part of the NSW Girls under 18s Triples team which won the national title, while Figtree RSL's Dylan Skinner went with a bowl or two of winning the blue ribbon Boys under 18s singles crown, beaten 21-19 in the final.
Despite being just 14, Skinner was an automatic selection in the Australian under 18s boys squad after excelling in singles for NSW.
National selector Steve Glasson also named Fairy Meadow star Dawn Hayman to make her first Australian under 18s girls squad, joining her NSW fours teammates, the Noronha twins, and Goulburn's Ellen Ryan.
The 10 boys and 12 girls in the national team will be reduced in January to five girls and five boys, selected to take on New Zealand at the Junior Trans Tasman in March.
"It was extremely difficult to bring the squad to just 20 members," Glasson said. "We initially had plans of picking 20 - 10 girls and 10 boys - but the girls were incredibly tough, so we have given two more the chance for exposure by increasing it to a squad of 12."
The Australian under 18s titles at North Launceston BC produced four days of stunning junior bowls with Western Australia taking the clean-sweep of the boys and girls events plus winning the Robert Middleton Overall Champions Trophy.
The Sandgropers took two gold, two silver and two bronze medals from the four boys and four girls' disciplines. Western Australian David Downey came from two shots down with two ends to play to beat Dylan Skinner 21-19 in a gold medal playoff in singles.
The Noronha twins and Ryan beat Western Australia 16-11 in the Triples final. The Noronhas' plus Hayman and Jamie Lee Worsnop reached the Girls Fours final, losing 19-17 to South Australia.
Hayman and Worsnop won a bronze medal in the Girls Pairs, while Skinner and Ben Glasson combined to win bronze in the Boys Pairs.
The national titles featured the best five boys and five girls from each state and territory with each team competing in singles, pairs, triples and fours.
Recently the competition has proved to be a nursery for Commonwealth Games gold medallists Lynsey Armitage and Mark Casey, as well as world No 6 Kelsey Cottrell.
