On Tuesday 9 April, the Killara side played against Lindfield Rollers (Section 2 winner) and won convincingly with a score of 70:25 to claim the flag. They will face the Manly-Warringah Grade 3 winner in May to see who will be going to the State Play-Offs.

Well done ladies and good luck with the Regional Play Off in May.

District Singles Runner-Up: Susie Meares

Posted

Congratulations to Susie Meares for becoming the 2019 North Shore District Singles Runner-up.

After playing 4 quality matches over 2 days, Susie earned her place in the final against Di McBryde from St Ives. Susie was trailing 1:13 but she fought back strongly catching up to 17:20. In the end, Di proved to be better on the day and claimed the title by winning 25:17.

It was a great effort by Susie who had won all the matches against Sue Addison, Jenny Palmer, Julie Hayden and Louise Hamshere who are seasoned bowlers with many more years of bowling experience than her. She pulled it through with her steely composure, focus and determination.

Well done Susie, Killara Bowling Club is so proud of you.

Another weekend, another win for Scott Laffer

Following on from his good form winning the Zone 9 Rookies Pairs last Saturday, Scott is continuing his success in taking out the Zone 9 Rookies Singles title. After three rounds of sectional games played on Saturday, 20 October, Scott made his way into the semi-finals.  The two semi-finals were played on the following day.  Scott won his semi-finals match against Michael Auld (Pittwater Memorial) convincingly 17:8. Scott started well in his finals match against another Pittwater Memorial player Pat Eather leading by 14:2.  However, his opponent caught up by 3 consecutive 2’s and followed by a single shot to be only 5 behind.  Scott steadied himself and dug deep to finally take out the match with a score of 17:11. Congratulations Scott!
