So proud of the girls!
August 2018: A couple of windy days at Bateau Bay saw our Grade 3 Pennants team at the State playoffs. They were in impressive company. Karen Murphy, no less, was coaching the Cabramatta team they met on Friday, and on Thursday the competition was similarly hard core!
We are immensely proud of our girls for making it to the State. As usual a strong contingent of Beecroft supporters turned up. BIAS got the report and was told that each and every one of the team put down legendary bowls. We may not have made it to the semis but the scorelines show Beecroft isn’t to be ignored!
Hear is what Lyn said:
“We had a lovely time and I feel we played well and did not disgrace ourselves at all, the first game on Thursday against Inverell we lost by 10, the second game in the afternoon against Commercial Albury we lost by 1 and then yesterday the draw with Cabramatta. The weather was lovely thought the breeze was chilly especially on Wed afternoon late the temp dropped and it was freezing. The greens were extremely fast but very smooth the arrangements for lunch and morning tea was very good.
“Dawn was a wonderful manager and with back up of Lyn Beaumont reserve every base was covered. Neill did a great job as photographer.
“Importantly thank you very much for the support of the people who came up from Sydney to support us Ken McLennan and Ken Harrison arriving with a car load of passengers. It was lovely to see Nola Biggers there as well, Sonia had stayed with her.”
How about our coaches!
Richard Morris and John King must be legends! Cabramatta had Karen Murphy and Aaron Wilson but we still managed to beat them on one rink and draw with them over all. Well done boys!
