Back in training and set to bowl them over

JUNIOR lawn bowler Jamie-Lee Worsnop has just finished her Bowls NSW State training squad camp and is getting ready for another big year of competition.

The year 12 Cecil Hills High School student swept all before her last year winning medals at national junior titles.

She was also named Bowls NSW junior female bowler of the year in 2013.

One of the highlights was winning a gold medal in the pairs at the Australian under-18 titles in Perth with Dawn Hayman.

Jamie-Lee also played for City against Country.

Her mentor and coach, Sharyn Renshaw, who trains Jamie-Lee each Friday, at St Johns Park Bowling Club, said the hard work had now begun for 2014.

"Jamie-Lee did well in the three-day state squad training camp at Taren Point Bowling Club," Renshaw said.

"Now the school holidays are over she will be back training on Fridays getting ready for this year's events and tournaments."

Jamie-Lee, 16, said Renshaw had improved her overall game.

"Sharyn knows a lot about the game and has worked hard on my technique," she said.

Renshaw's status as an Australian and NSW player for many years helped her understand about the pressures and what was needed to succeed at the top level, Jamie-Lee said.

Renshaw also attended the state squad's training camp at Taren Point. "On one of the days of the camp I spoke about diet, nutrition and fitness and about what players have to do try and become a good lawn bowler," Renshaw said.

She said Jamie-Lee had worked hard and her success was a credit to her.
