A TALENTED crop of llawarra bowlers will be aiming for a rare treble in 2019 after claiming their second straight national Tenpin title last month.
Reanna Skora-Corbett, Rowena Jenner, Renee Waters and Glenn Corbett made the transition from disability to mainstream bowling four years ago and were part of the NSW Restricted Team’s 2017 triumph.
All four won a place on the NSW team for this year’s national titles with Shoalhaven local Glen Barwick also joining the team that made it back-to-back titles.
The event takes place over three days in singles, doubles and teams events to determine the all-events point score on the final day.
“I can’t emphasize enough how this is a team competition,” coach Paul Jenner said.
“Without a strong performance from the entire team it’s impossible to win this championship.”
It was the first time NSW has claimed consecutive titles since 2014 and will see the team chasing a treble that has only been achieved once by Queensland between 2010-12.
“The bowlers have all indicated they would like to defend their title in 2019 but it is not an easy pathway,” Jenner said.
“They have to win a spot in the team over a two-day roll off next year and then the weekly training begins.
“Last year I said I didn’t think the ‘quartet’ had yet reached their full potential, but they have once again exceeded my expectations.
“Now I am going to challenge them to lift their game even higher by encouraging them to reset their personal goals ”
