Cooktown bowling sensation Corinne Stallan has returned from the National Championships with a silver and bronze medal and was awarded player of the series.
The 17-year-old, who plays at Cooktown Bowls Club, was selected to captain both the triples and fours teams at the Perth championships, and said competition was really tough.
“The first day was fours and we played Victoria, South Australia and a composite Victoria and New South Wales team,” she said.
“We won all three of our games, which then put us into the gold medal match against New South Wales, and unfortunately we lost against them but still got the silver medal.”
On the second day of competition Corinne and her triples team were matched against the same three teams, beating Victoria and South Australia, but losing to the composite team, putting them into bronze medal contention.
“We went into the bronze medal match against a composite ACT and Western Australia team and won the bronze medal,” she said.
“I played really well and adapted well to the fast greens over the two days – they were long days starting at 7am and finishing at 8pm.”
Corinne, who is now back home in Cooktown prepping for the North versus South challenge in Mackay at the end of the month, was also awarded female player of the series for Queensland.
