It's Gold for Raymond Terrace! Raymond Terrace Bowling Club will be glowing as local bowls champion Natasha Scott returns from the Commonwealth Games wearing her gold medal. Her victory over the South African team was a triumph for the local legend, who has been playing bowls since she was 15.
Now 27, Natasha led the Australian team to an 18 to 16 victory over South Africa with her teammates Kelsey Cottrell, Rebecca van Asch and Carla Krizanic. Having competed in the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Natasha went into this year's competition experienced. Her dedication has clearly paid off. Natasha's achievements are well known locally and this is by no means her first victory.
In October last year, she won all four women's State titles in the one season, and in 2016 she won the World Singles Champion of Champions competition.
Congratulations to Natasha and her teammates on this fantastic win for Australia and for Raymond Terrace.
