Natasha Scott has for the fourth time in her career claimed Australia’s Female Bowler of the Year Award.

The dual-Commonwealth Games gold medallist from Raymond Terrace produced another consistent season to secure her the 2018 gong, announced at Bowls Australia’s annual awards night on the Gold Coast on October 31.

Scott said it was “fantastic” to be named Female Bowler of the Year.

The award recognises the male and female bowlers who, at the end of June, were at the top of the sport’s national player rankings.

The full contingent of Australian Jackaroos that secured five gold and two silver medals at the 2018 Games were honoured in a special presentation.

This included Scott and her triples and fours medal-winning teammates Karen Murphy, Kelsey Cottrell, Rebecca Van Asch and Carla Krizanic.
