12 year old Jack McShane from Denistone Sports Club is the 2016 Zone Rookie Singles Champion after defeating Doug Vail of Brush Park Bowling Club 17-12 in the final held on Sunday afternoon.
Jack shot to an early 7-2 lead in the game before Doug stormed back to level the scores at 7-7. The game continued shot for shot over the next few ends before Jack made another break away to lead 14-11. Two shots down, Doug attempted to roll Jack shot bowl out but was a little wide, knocking another of Jack's bowls in, giving him three shots and the game.
It was a pleasure to mark this game and to be joined by Chris Wallace representing Zone 10 to make the presentations.
Thank you to Gary Tyrrell and Michael Schwarcz for overseeing this event, Dallas Palm for his IT wizardry and to our umpires Don Couch, Bob Cole and Peter Eagle for umpiring over the two day competition.
West Pennant Hills looks forward to welcoming players from across the Zone back to our club for the Rookie Pairs to be played in September.
