Bowls In Focus : Bowls In Focus May 2010
20 Bowls In Focus Essendon state player Anna Hoogwerf fulfilled expectations last month when she clinched her second VLBA Champion of Champi- ons crown in a nail-biting finish at the Berwick Bowls Club. Hoogwerf defeated tenacious Lyn Maple from Ballarat’s Central Wendouree club 25-23 in a 36-end marathon to claim the exclusive champion’s jacket for the second time. The tall Bomber started off bril- liantly and had the winning post in sight when she lead 20-10 after 17-ends, however, the doggedly deter mined Maple, who has a history of outstanding sporting achievement, began to reel her in. And while Maple gnawed away at Hoogwerf ’s lead in a dour struggle, the standard of play continued to be of the highest order. After 28-ends Maple and Hoogwerf were tied at 23-apiece before Hoog- werf was able to collect successive singles to claim her second Jean Thomson Perpetual Trophy. Anna’s first title came in 2007 at Ballarat’s Webbcona club, and she joins an elite list of greats to have won this title - the longest running women’s state championship in Australia - on more than one occa- sion. These are Nor ma Massey and Margaret Sumner who are three-time winners, while the late Dot Jenkin- son, Alison Duncan, Lorraine Steel and Mary-Anne Spizer each have two victories to their credit. • Left: State president Maureen Connolly presents the Jean Thomson Perpetual Trophy to winner Anna Hoogwerf. • Above: Young Essendon star Anna Hoogwerf on her winning way. • Below: Finalist Lyn Maple from Central Wendouree impressed every- one with her dogged determination.
