SALE Bowls Club’s pennant winning teams will be represented at the state championships after winning regional titles.

After winning their respective North Gippsland pennant titles, the Sale teams played the East Gippsland champions at home.

Last Tuesday, the Sale division one women’s team defeated Bairnsdale to progress to the state championships at Barham, New South Wales next month.

On Saturday, the Sale White men’s team overcame a strong challenge from Lakes Entrance to score a decisive 55-shot win in division one to earn the right to play for state honours in May, also at Barham.

In division two, Sale White lost to a consistent Bruthen by 23 shots.
