News Team Henselite Team Henselite AO Whitewash
June 29, 2016

It was another record-breaking week at the Australian Open for Team Henselite with a staggering 10 out of 14 winners across the open sections using the Dreamline XG.

In the men's fours, the reigning Team Henselite champions, Scott Thulborn, Wayne Ruediger, Nathan Pedersen and Steven Dennis made it back to back titles when they overcame Barrie Lester's combination, 16-13, with a huge win on the final end.

“We’re all really good mates and I guess that goes a long way with being able to bowl well,” Steven Dennis told Bowls Australia after the event. “There’s always someone to back them up and we all pitch in together.”

In the women's fours final it was almost an all-Henselite affair when two teams of young future stars played off for the $12,000 prize money, six of them using Dreamline XGs. Winners Chloe Stewart, Tiffany Brodie and Amelia Bruggy with team-mate Georgia White, were able to overcome their opposition of Kylie Whitehead, Tayla Spence and Kristina Krstic playing with Samantha Shanahan in a tight 16-13 final that showcased a bright future for Australian bowls.

In the Men's Pairs, Nathan Pedersen skipped Steven Dennis to a second Australian Open medal in 2016 with a final that also ended in a 16-13 scoreline.

In the women's pairs, Bec Van Asch used her Dreamline XGs for some clutch bowls at the right time to take the crown with Anne Johns over Henselite teammate and 2015 Singles Champion, Ellen Ryan, who had teamed up with Julie Keegan.

Tiffany Brodie was on the winners podium again with a win in the Girls U18 Singles and Nathan Appleton won both the Bowlers with and Intellectual Disability Singles and Multi-disability Pairs, polishing of a fantastic event.
