Trio move onto to next level in challenge
THREE local girls will represent the Burnett Ladies at the 2015 District Sides Challenge in May.
BrittannyWiley, from Binjour Bowls Club, and Taleah Putney and Aymee Bellert, from Gayndah Bowls Club, achieved great results in the Development Test Series against Auckland at the Gold Coast Challenge and are looking forward to greater challenges.
The girls from the North Burnett achieved amazing results for the Under-18 Queensland team.
In each test the girls’ team had to play six games.
The results from Test 1 10+34, Test 2 8+31, Test 3 6+13, Test 4 10+47, Test 5 10+67 and Test 6 10+15.
Brittanny’s grandmother, AileenWiley, said it was an amazing result for this young team.
“All the girls know each other, but haven’t played together as a team, as they come from all over the state,” MrsWiley said.
“Only six out of the seven tests were played due to inclement weather, but the young guns won every test as a team result, only losing nine out of the 36 games

played,” she said.
Everyone in the team had to play a different position every game.
They all played a singles game, two pairs games and three triples games.
Each team member had to lead and then skip the last game, where in the triples games, they played skip, lead and second, with teams being changed every discipline.
Out of the six games Brittanny played she won four, winning her singles 21-5, winning both pairs games 16-15 and 18-9, whilst in the triples winning only one game with the scores 12-19, 21-11 and 18-19.
