Sydney’s Jan Rolph made it back-to-back wins in the Over-60 women’s triples competition, although this year she had former Victorians Betty Herbertson and Denise Knight at her side. They were far too strong for past champions Roma Dunn, Peg Currie and Julie Lindsay from West Australia in the main event. Well-performed locals Deanna Tobin, Joan Hancock and Raelyn Buntine from the Hoppers club, along with Lalor’s Marie-Lourdes Taylor, Beryl Stewar t and Peggy Bell, played their way into the semi finals before going out to the eventual finalists. Another three silver medals came Victoria’s way when blind bowler Mary Price lost the singles final to Joan Robertson from NSW in a tiebreaker, while Mi- chael Barca also went down in a tiebreaker to WA’s David Ravlich in the deaf bowlers singles gold medal play-off. Similarly, Victorian Joanna Lomagno was on the losing end of a tiebreaker against Qld’s Chrystal Martin in the AUSRAPID women’s singles final. But perhaps the most interesting of Victoria’s seven silver medals came when Tasmania’s Mikay- la Baker outgunned Lisa Phillips in the Under-18 girls singles final on the last morning of the Open. Three hours later Lisa became the toast of the bowls world when she pocketed the $18,000 first prize for winning the richest women’s event on the planet.
