Rookies take win
ALGESTER were dressed to impress, taking first place at the Rose Bowl Championships, which wrapped up yesterday.
But Warwick was not far behind, finishing runner-up in the event.
Algester got four wins plus 56 and Warwick got four wins plus 41.
A total of 16 teams were vying for a place, each putting in a stellar performance.
Algester skip Alana Sharp said it was an “utter surprise” when the team found out they had won.
She said it was the team’s first time playing together and their first trophy.
The Warwick team said they were just there for the fun of it.
Warwick Ladies Bowls Club president Judith Cutmore said she was very impressed with everyone’s conduct on the green.
“The two Warwick teams both got places – an excellent result for Warwick ladies.”
There was an outstanding turnout despite the looming clouds on day one, which almost put the event in jeopardy.
“We’re very, very delighted with how the weather held. It’s been a marvellous two days,” Mrs Cutmore said.
