Louise Morison claims Women In Sport award
Bowls Victoria Under 18 Chair Louise Morison is one of 11 Victorian sports administrators to receive an inaugural Women In Sport Recognition Award.
It was part of the annual Women In Sport breakfast, of which Bowls Victoria is a bronze partner.
Louise, who has been involved with Victorian bowls as an official in the junior bowls sphere for many years, was presented with her award at the 2017 ceremony hosted by Gymnastics Victoria at the RACV Club in Melbourne.
Louise joined Nicole Livingstone (Victorian Olympic Council), Clare Hanlon (Victoria University), Julie Jellis (Calisthenics Victoria), Judy Dalton (Tennis Victoria), Jenny Sanchez (Netball Victoria), Rochelle Eime (Victoria Univeristy), Peta Murphy (Squash and Racquetball Victoria), Rebecca Taylor (Skate Victoria), Sharon Lynas (Cricket Victoria) and Joan Duquemin (Gymnastics Victoria) as being recognised for making a significant contribution and impact to increasing the participation of women and girls in Victorian sport.
Louise has contributed significantly to the sport of Bowls, especially in Under 18 and Junior Development. Louise is the current chair of the Bowls Victoria Under 18 Committee and is our Under 18 State Teams Manager.
She organises all training days and observation days for up and coming junior bowlers and is the point of call for annual Under 18 Test matches.
Her bowls contribution also extends to club level, where she spends multiple hours coaching and on selection committees.
Her dedication for junior development has seen the Under 18 program continue to flourish under her leadership, and provided many opportunities for junior bowlers and females to participate in the sport.
Louise, who bowls for Sunbury, is also an accomplished bowler in her own right, with success at regional and club level, as well as making the Victorian Open women’s pairs quarter-finals in 2015.
Congratulations Louise, from all at Bowls Victoria.
The event included guest speakers Tracey Gaudry – Olympian and former Hawthorn AFL CEO – and Australian Diamonds netball head coach Lisa Alexander.
