Triples champs (L–R): Julie Quigley, Jenny Meinel (C) and Jenny Lofts

With the blustery wind quickly drying out the moderately fast green the conditions were not the easiest for the final of the Brunswick Heads Women’s Bowls Triples Championship held last Tuesday.

Sharon Allen, Fay Parkes, and Marcia Crichton looked to have a strong start but a five-point loss on the seventh end proved hard to recover from. 

The team of Julie Quigley, Jenny Meinel, and Jenny Lofts took advantage and managed to claw ahead and hold onto their lead for the remainder of the match to win 23–19.

The win follows Meinel and Lofts women’s pairs win earlier in the year and is a great result for Quigley – one of the club’s newer bowlers.
