2019 Australian Senior Sides Championships: Summary

by BowlsSA2

Queensland has reigned supreme at the 2019 Australian Sides Championships, claiming the Glyn Bosistio MBE Overall and Betty Collins OAM Women’s trophies.

The trophy haul continues the state’s dominant month across all demographics of the sport, having also claimed all three trophies on offer at the recent Australian Under-18 Championships.

It was the Queensland women who stole the headlines following a dominant week, seeing through the seven rounds without tasting defeat, quite the rare achievement.

Their male counterparts also performed strongly, finishing third in the Men’s Overall standings, with New South Wales’ six wins seeing them claim the John Dobbie AM Men’s trophy.

The collective effort by the Maroons was evident by the fact they had all of their skips ranked within the top-six across both the male and female best-performed standings.
