News Team Henselite Team Henselite's Champions of All Champions!
October 20, 2014

Two of Team Henselite's finest are the new Australian Champion of all Champions after Katrina Wright and Scott Thulborn took out the women's and men's singles titles on the weekend.

Playerd at Taren Point Bowls Club, NSW's Katrina Wright made the most of her home club advantage in the final when she took on SA's Sue Coultas. Both bowlers were using Henselite Dreamline XGs in a final played in gusty, rainy conditions.

Katrina is a former Australian representative and has won the two other National Titles on offer, the Australian Open Singles and the Australian Indoors. While her opponent never let her get too far ahead, it was Katrina's experience that got her over the line and she picked up 4 shots on the final end to win 21-12.

"This win was really special as it was on my home turf. The rain was horizontal into my face but there were lots of spectators there and all my teammates on the sidelines. To have my family there too was great."

"As for my Henselite Dreamline XGs, I couldn't have been any happier with them. The conditions were terrible but they worked perfectly. I had full confidence in my bowls."

This win takes Katrina into the history books as the only woman to win all three Australian National Titles. "It's a good feeling to have won all three titles. That's something that no one can take away from you."

In the final of the men's event South Australian bowls' Man of the Moment, Scott Thulborn, continued his stellar form with a 21-13 victory over WA's Thomas Mitchell.

Scott, who also uses Dreamline XGs, will take part in the Australian Premier League in November as part of the Adelaide Endurance team.

Both Scott and Katrina will pull on the Green and Gold, representing Australia at the World Champion of Champions at Club Helensvale on the Gold Coast in 2015.
