Bowls: Jenny Harman lands second over-60 singles title in a row

Sebastopol’s Jenny Harman is the Ballarat District Bowls Division women’s over-60 singles champion for the second year on end.

She defeated Sally McCracken, of Central Wendouree, in the final – having to deal with strong wind, frequent showers and cold conditions.

McCracken had to work hard to get through her semi-final against Jenny Shepherd from Webbcona.

They were all tied up on eight, 11 and then 20 shots before McCracken drew a shot on the last end to advance.

Central Wendouree's Elizabeth Kierce pressed Harman early.

Kierce led 11-8 after 14 ends before Harman hit her straps to win five of the last six ends.

ENTRIES close for the BDBD state triples and fours on Sunday, November 6.

INTRIGUING start to the division one pennant season. Who would have predicted reigning premier 

Central Wendouree would be sitting seventh after three rounds, while City Oval led with an unbeaten record.
