Joyful jig at ladies titles



TWEED Heads bowler Carmen Anderson was jumping for joy after winning the prestigious Tweed Heads Ladies Masters Singles title yesterday.

Anderson emerged victorious and picked up the $800 first prizemoney after a hard-fought final against Di Cunnington, also a Tweed Heads player, who fought back from 16-2 down to trail by just four shots at one stage in the first to 25 point final.

Anderson though, a previous winner in 2003 and 2002, held on for a 25-16 win in front of a big crowd at the club's indoor green.

The win follows her success at the Helensvale Grand Prix Pairs event last week.

She will be gunning for a third victory on the trot when she competes at the club's Tweed Open Mixed Singles title, which starts on Friday.

In yesterday's semifinals Anderson beat Brisbane's Noelene Dutton, 25-14, while Cunnington toppled Ann-Marie Hardey 25-10.

More than 40 top bowlers from across Australia and New Zealand competed.
