LEONGATHA’S Tuesday Pennant team
broke a 35 year drought when it defeated In-
verloch in the Division 1 final last week at
The Leongatha team were in control for
most of the contest and pulled away at the
end to win by 12 shots 16/70 to 0/58.
Great celebrations followed the final rink
to finish in which Marj Person’s girls defeat-
ed Anne Tschiderer’s 21 to 16.
Leongatha’s Division 3 team that went
down to Mirboo North in a thriller spilled
out onto the green to congratulate their club-
In the centre of it all were mother and
daughter combo Jenny Miller and Angie
Jenny, the South Gippsland Bowls Divi-
sion’s singles champion, is also a member at
Loch, but was granted a dual membership to
allow her to play with Angie.
Her addition to the squad helped immense -
ly, along with the experience of Marj Pearson
and Leonie Hanks in recent times.
Leongatha finished third on the ladder at
the end of the regular season but saved their
best until when it mattered most.
After many years rising and falling between
Division 1 and 2, the first pennant in 35
years has been well celebrated.
In another exciting result, Port Welshpool
secured a promotion to Division 1 with a win
against Tarwin Lower.
The tiny little club barely has enough mem-
bers to field pennant sides with men and
women part of the teams that play on Tues-
days and Saturdays.
As mentioned, Mirboo North had a narrow
win against Leongatha in Division 3 and In-
verloch won against Corinella in Division 4.

CAPE Paterson surfer Taj Sleeman has now
won two of the three events in the Victorian Ju-
nior Series after claiming victory at Gunnamat-
ta Ocean Beach at the weekend.
He won the opening event at Phillip Island
a few weeks back and has his hands firmly
wrapped around the Under 18 title with a
round to go.
Round 2 was completed over two days of
large and challenging conditions at, with travel-
ling surfers dominating the podium positions.
Saturday saw swells of over 3m pounding
the outside of the sandbank, forcing a delay in
the start of the event before a reduction in wave
heights and more favourable winds on Sunday
provided an excellent platform for Victoria’s
best juniors to do battle.
Taj’s two wave total of 12.23 was enough for
the win. “I’d never won a State Series event, so
to win back to back is pretty wild,” he said.
“I thought that having a goal of making the
state team might have been unreachable, so to
have locked in a spot already is a great feeling.”
Local surfer Jett Dickinson placed second
with a 9.83 total, with Jayden Schram (Tor-
quay, 8.10) and Kenta Fergusson (Jan Juc).
Other Bass Coast surfers figured prominently
at the event.
The U/16 Girls final saw a head to head battle
between 2016 Victorian U/16 Champion Bella
Wilson (Jan Juc) and 2016 Australian U/14
Champion Sage Goldsbury (Phillip Island) with
multiple lead changes in the 20 minute final.
Carrying the lead into the final minutes,
Wilson’s final 6.73 ride (out of a possible 10)
extended her hold on first position, finishing
with a two wave total of 13.73 (out of a possible
20) which saw her edge out Goldsbury’s 13.00
The U/16 Boys final was another high per-
formance affair, with 2016 Australian U/16
Champion Xavier Huxtable (Jan Juc) continu-
ing his dominance taking first place with 15.33
points. Second was Phillip Island’s Codie Jef-
The U/14 Girls was dominated by Barwon
Heads’ Ellie Harrison. Second through to fourth
position was a tight tussle, with Jazz Wylie (Jan
Juc) edging out Phillip Island’s Poppy Corbett.
The final round of the series will be held at
Jan Juc on May 13 and 14. Entries are still
open at www.surfingvic.com
