Bowls In Focus : October 2011
6 Bowls In Focus Take Five Victorians Juniors At Nationals Victoria medaled in five of the eight disciplines contested during the recent Australian Under-18 Championships at Darebin City Bowls Club to finish third overall in the best-performed state competition. It was a solid performance by the young Vics; although at the outset there were high expectations that the boys team would dominate considering that four of the five are established metropolitan premier pennant players. “Like it or not we have to accept that the guys underachieved,” said state coach Todd Simmons, “but we were delighted with the girls, who are very inexperienced, and probably overachieved.” At the medal presentations the boys collected two silver and two bronze, while the girls had one podium result with their silver medal finish in the fours. By virtue of their domination in the boys competition – they won all four gold medals - it was the NSW side that finished as top state at the completion of the four days. In all the Two-Blues won five gold, one silver and a bronze from the eight events, while runners- up Queensland claimed two gold, a silver and a bronze to pip Victoria’s three silver and two bronze.
