Women’s State Training Squad Announced
Bowls WA Women’s Selection Panel have announced the Women’s State Training Squad for trials to represent Western Australia at the 2018 Australia Sides Championships in Northern Territory at Darwin and Nightcliff Bowling Clubs May 3rd – 6th 2018.
The Squad includes eleven of the twelve Side Players from last year, missing only Shenayde Heldt who has moved to the Northern Territory and may well be an opponent at next years Series!
Noelene Abe returns to Squad selections after having to step down from the Side last year due to health concerns. Linda Warburton has come out of semi-retirement from the Open Women’s Team after announcing last year that she would be focusing on the Over 60’s events. Kim Simms and Debra Rhine return to again compete for a position on the State Side, while newcomers Jill Adam, Rhonda Creyk, Robin Higgins, Robyn Jolly, Wendy Marsh, Jenny Rogalski, and Sally Wilke are sure to put their best bowls forward whilst competing for Side Selection in March 2018.
With a slightly different format this year, the initial 22 Women selected will form part of the Women’s State Training Squad. This Training Squad will be reduced in number to 16 to form the final Women’s State Squad prior to Christmas. The State Side will be announced mid-March prior to the Side Series commencing in May.
