2018 Ladies District Singles Championship:
2018 was historic for the Ladies District Singles. For the first time in many years it became a knock-out event and for the first time in CDBA history the event was staged under lights at night. This spectacle was hosted, over 5 nights, by Algester Sports Club.
Thank you Algester for supplying all markers and umpires and for co-ordinating this event with a professionalism rarely seen. The Algester Men did most of the marking and everyone was astonished at the quality of bowling displayed by all contenders.
In the semi-finals Rachelle Harkness from Darra Cementco took on fellow team mate Jannah Howard also of Darra Cementco. Jannah won through 25-19 in a hard fought battle.
In the adjoining semi-final Teresa Smedley of Algester over came Linda Brack of United 25-16.
It all came down to the following night. Expectations were high. Jannah Howard of Darra Cementco versus Teresa Smedley of Algester. Both had been playing superb bowls and the quality of bowling in the Grand Final did not let anyone down.
Congratulations District Singles Champion Jannah Howard winning 25-18 over Teresa Smedley.
2018 Ladies District Pairs:
The Ladies District Pairs this year attracted a slightly smaller field, but the quality was outstanding. Clubs represented included: Algester, Corinda, Darra Cementco, Jindalee, Sunnybank, United and Yeronga. All the powerhouse players strutted their stuff. This Championship event, staged over two weekends, was again hosted flawlessly by Algester Sports Club.
The best of the best won through with 2017 District Pairs Champions Julie Ezzy and Liz Parry (Sunnybank) defending their 2017 title taking on Rachelle Harkness (District Singles Semi-Finalist) and Helen Wood-Bradley of Darra Cementco.
The final was a close encounter for the first half but the team from Sunnybank flexed their muscles and took control in the later stages.
Congratulations Julie Ezzy and Liz Parry on back to back title wins defeating Rachelle Harkness and Helen Wood-Bradley 27-14.
2018 Ladies District Fours Championship:
The 2018 Ladies District Fours was a two day event hosted by Algester Sports Club. Forty players from all over the District competed. Clubs represented included Algester, Corinda, Darra Cementco, Jindalee, Salisbury, United and Yeronga. For a small club that only has just enough players to take part in Pennants, Darra Cementco was well attended with two plus teams on display. Darra Cementco, it could be said, certainly punch above their weight, having had representation in the finals of both the District singles and pairs championships.
The Fours final proved to be no different. Darra Cementco, represented by Marcia Macoun (skip), Michelle Davidson (3rd), Mirrie Ndungu (2nd) and Jenni Woods (lead) overcame a strong Yeronga side including: Denice Turner (skip), Debbie Farley (3rd), Dianne Cross (2nd) and Margaret Murphy (lead). The final result Darra Cementco 21 Yeronga 12.
The 2018 Ladies District Championships were indeed historic. All three finals; including Singles, Pairs and Fours were live streamed across the CDBA Facebook page. Viewers came from all across Australia, New Zealand and even as far afield as Scotland. Around 10,000 viewers were entertained.
Thank you Graham Lewis of the CDBA Match Committee for bringing Bowls to the community.
