Most Improved Jnr Woman
First Triples Champ of Champs since 2016 / Young Guns Upset.
The Wanaka Men's team of Murray Finn, Todd Swain and Mark Daniels took out the Wanaka Bowling Club previous Championship winners of 4 years Richie Muir, Simon Nyhof and Tom Malcolm on Monday 27 March. This honour allowed them to represent Wanaka against 10 other teams from around Central Otago.
It was Wanaka's turn to host the Champion of Champion matches triples 1 April and Fours Sunday 2 April. It was not just the Wanaka crowd but everyone who were excited about the high level of bowls being played. When the Wanaka team reached the final after taking out Omakau and Alexandra Districts Club the men were in fine form playing Hawea (Kyle McGowan, Ethan Flynn, Gary Vogel) to take out the match 20-15.
This was the first Championship Open Title for Todd Swain (7 year bowler) and Mark Daniels (4 year bowler) and the first Champion of Champions title for Murray Finn. Murray, a very precise and deliberate player, showed his years of experience drawing through a small gap in a tight head on several occasions to take the head into a positive for Wanaka. Murray also recently completed his coaching certificate.
The Wanaka men will now represent Central Otago in the New Zealand Triples playoffs in the Hopes Stadium in Dunedin on the 14-16th July.
