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.

Two other lo­cal girls played in the Un­der-25s with the Tests go­ing to three wins a side, but on the count­back of mar­gins Auck­land won the Un­der-25s Chal­lenge.

Some great bowls with fight backs from each team, with lots of new friend­ships.
