SOLDIERS Point women’s bowlers have had a great year, a highlight being that two of our top bowlers Betty Herbertson and Jan Sutherland combined to win the NSW State Pairs Champion of Champions against a very strong field. Betty has gone on to gain selection in the NSW fours senior side competing in the Australian Champion of Champions at Broadbeach 2-5 October.

This week marked the end of a successful women’s pennants competition with the strong division one team winning the district and regional flag with some tense close games.

They will now go directly to the state playoffs in November.

The team is Pamela Stephens, Jan Sutherland, Betty Herbertson, Leisa Burton (skip), Adelle Pearson, Julie Schumacher, Melissa Witts and Cheryl Field (skip).

Also, the division two Blue team excelled through the rounds to bring home the district flag.

They now progress to the zone play offs in October at Cessnock.

The division four team bowled consistently well through the rounds to win their section, but went down narrowly in an exciting match to Stockton in the sectional playoffs at Raymond Terrace last Tuesday watched by many vocal supporters from the various competing clubs.

The team was Karen-Anne Bergeson, Maureen Holland, Deb Bellingham, Jan Tyson (skip), Jan Williams, Lyn Yeomans, Irene Fuller, and Robyn Hughes (skip).

Congratulations to all pennant bowlers on a great season and good luck to those advancing to zone and state playoffs.
