News Team Henselite Team Henselite Blitz at SA Champs Week
April 30, 2015

What a week for Team Henselite at South Australian Champions Week! With Bowls SA running their second annual Champions week from April 23rd-29th at Lockleys Bowling Club, it was the Henselite team that really came out on top with win after win in State, Open and Champion of Champions finals.

First up winner was Matthew Northcott of Adelaide BC who was victorious in the Open Singles Final using Henselite Dreamline XGs.

"I was really relieved," he said after winning the final. "I've played in a lot of semi finals and finals over last couple of years so i was  really relived and excited to win one and finally get my name on a shield."

"This is up there as my biggest individual achievement, of course coming so close to winning the Alley Shield this year as part of a team, that's the kind of thing you play for, but this is definitley my biggest individual win."

"My Dreamline XGs were really good throughout the week. Lockleys is known for being a bit blustery and we had some rain but they held up really well with hardly any variation throughout the conditions. Team Henselite really cleaned up so they were definitely the bowl of choice for the free running greens and a bit of wind."

Matthew's win opened the floodgates for Team Henselite with Simon Dorr (Modbury BC) and Breeanna Dickson (Salisbury BC) winning the Men's and Women's State Singles Titles respectively. Simon's achievement makes it the fourth year in a row that a Team Henselite bowler has taken out this blue ribbon event with Ashley Klose (Marion) winning last year's title and Scott Thulborn (Adelaide) winning the previous 2 years. 

Breeanna's win, at 19 years old, makes her the youngest ever winner of the State Singles in South Australia. It wasn't the only title for her this week either, she also won the State Triples the following day. 

Penny Landherr added to the tally with a win in the women's pairs before Scott Thulborn and Matthew Northcott teamed up to win the Men's State Fours finan. Nathan Pederson, a recent winner of the State Under 25 Singles, took out the Men's Champion of Champion Pairs.

But that's wasn't the end of it for Scott Thulborn who was already the defending State Singles Champion of Champions and Australian Champion of Champions, he sailed through his final games and went on to win the State Champion of Champions title yet again. This will earn him another berth at the Australian event later in the year.

All Team Henselite bowlers winning during SA Champions week used Dreamline XGs. The bowl of choice for the SA greens and conditions.
