New names crowned as State Champions
Results of Men’s and Women’s State Triples Six new names were crowned as State Champions yesterday at Manning Memorial Bowling Club as the finals of the Henselite State Triples were concluded.
In the Women’s event Rhonda Prosser (North Beach), Liz Marshall (Sorrento) and Joan Falconer (North Beach) would have started as under dogs against the talented Mosman Park trio of Lisa Featherby Janne Gibsone and Linda Warburton but emerged triumphant winning 19-13. The Mosman Park team led for a large majority of the final but failed to add after leading 13-10. The Prosser skipped team simply outstanding over the concluding stages to score nine shots in the last four ends.

They started the final brilliantly to lead 11-2 after eight ends and held off a late charge from the Cambridge side of David Opie, Brad Ball and Chris Lander to win 15-11.
