SUNRAYSIA bowler Emma Simmonds has continued her outstanding form winning Bowls Sunraysia’s round of the State Singles Championship at Mildura Workers Bowls Club on Tuesday.

Simmonds has enjoyed a brilliant run in recent months,  competing in the Australian Fours Championship in Merrimbula late last year, gaining selection in the Victorian under-25 side to compete in a Test series against NSW later this month and she also played a integral role in helping Irymple to their second successive Division One Sunraysia Bowls Pennant title.

Simmonds, 19, said her latest victory rated among her best and she was looking forward to continuing to develop her game.
