COOKTOWN lawn bowls star Corinne Stallan has her fingers crossed for a national team selection after a strong showing amid tough competition in Sydney earlier this month.
The 17-year-old student has bounced back after a disappointing outing at her first open competition in May as she represented Queensland against NSW and Victoria.
“I was happy with how it went, but it was a really tough competition,” Corinne said.
“I played fours, triples and pairs and skipped (captained) all of them. We lost our first game of fours and pairs, won our first game of triples and our second game of pairs and lost our last game of triples.”
The three-day competition was monitored closely by selectors who will pick eight prospective players for the nationals in Perth.
“We are not sure when those teams will get announced, but it will go from the initial eight selected down to five boys and five girls,” Corinne said.
