It was a great weekend for Bowls on the Island as the 2016 BC Triples Championships were held at the Victoria Lawn Bowling Club from July 22-24th.
It has been a special two weeks for Team David Mathie as the Trio of David Mathie, George Cubiss, Arthur Harrison, showed that they can play at any level. Fresh off the Senior Triples win a couple weeks again in Nanaimo, the crew joined forces to show the Province that it was no fluke as they breezed through this years Men’s Triples field at the Victoria Lawn Bowling Club on the weekend. A classic showing in having a great Team that gets along on the greens, a fantastic attitude, combined with making the necessary shots to win you the game has been a superb recipe to hit the podium once again for the guys.
Final standings for the Men – Gold: David Mathie, Silver: Stephen Yung, Bronze: David Gardner
On the Women’s side it was last years winners making it a repeat performance as Jenny Siu took home the Gold Medal and a chance to head back to the Canadians. It was last year that Jenny and her Team lost in an extra end of the Gold Medal game at the Canadians, eventually taking home the Silver Medal. Congratulations to Elizabeth Day and her Team on a great performance through the weekend as it was a tight final with some great shots being made.
Final Standings for the Women: Gold: Jenny Siu, Silver: Elizabeth Day: Bronze: Josephine Lee
