Singles Champion Michelle Treadwell (Belrose) (left) and runner-up Elaine Seidler (Neutral Bay) (right)

Michelle Treadwell (Belrose WBC) is our North Shore District Singles Champion for 2020, having today defeated Elaine Seidler (Neutral Bay Club) 25-13. Overnight rain had slowed the green at Forestville RSL somewhat and Michelle got off to the better start, springing out to an 8-0 lead after three ends. The next three ends went to Elaine, to get her on the board with the score reading 8-4. Michelle slowly and steadily took hold of the match, extending her lead to 14-7. Then Elaine put together two excellent ends, picking up consecutive 3’s and, with the scores standing at 14-13, the crowd of supporters from both clubs were on the edge of their seats. However, Michelle quickly steadied her run towards the title and, although Elaine was holding shot at some point on many of the following ends, Michelle denied her any chance of keeping pace. Winning seven consecutive ends, Michelle took out the championship 25-13.
