Congratulations to CCC gateball players who collected all awards at this event held last weekend over 3 days at Toronto near Lake Macquarie.
Glen and Kristina Whitehead fought off strong contenders from SA and Queensland to take the winner’s trophy for Doubles.
Canberra entered two teams in the teams event with the strongest competition from the Queensland team of players from Southport, Rockhampton and Ipswich. Our youngest player, Josh Willsher, took on his first role as Captain of the Canberra Mavericks team and was skilfully guided by the experience of Kristina Whitehead.
The final was a showdown between the two Canberra teams with a determined Mavericks taking the championships from the Canberra Sparkers 17 – 6.
Results from this State championship auger well for our chances at the Australian National Championships in September.
