Underwood represents SA

BHAS lawn bowls player Judy Underwood has beenselected for the South Australian team.

Underwood has been a consistently successful player for around 20 years.

In June 2014, she was selected in the State development squad and in August 2015 she moved into the State squad which is a group of 20 players.

From that group, 12 players are chosen to play in top level events.

Underwood has been selected to play in an interstate match against Victoria and will wear her State uniform with pride.

It is a testimony to her consistency at a high standard, that she has been offered this opportunity, when so many players have joined the sport at a very young age and have had top level coaching and reached State level quite young.

She said bowls was being played by people of all ages.

“In the city it is becoming a young person’s sport, but age is no barrier,” she said.

Underwood has won numerous club and regional eventsas an individual and as a member of various team combinations.

Her team, BHAS Blue, won last year’s Pennant Bulloch Shield.

Her achievements are too numerous to list, but when asked, Judy described two events which were particularly important to her.

She said it was “a big thrill” when Region 3 won the Prestige Medley this season -a competition where 12 regions compete against each other.

There are eight country areas and four city areas with Region 3 includingthe North Western area and also Flinders and Upper Spencer Gulf.

Each of the regions is an amalgamation, so it is a competition against the best in the State. Underwood was skipper in the fours team and contributed to the winning team tally.

She admitted to being very nervous with her final bowl, as it was essential to make the shot.

The other event which was a highlight for herwas last year’s round robin, in which she was skipper and the team consisted of Wilma Hendry, Helen Magor and Agnes Dhu.

The rink achieved the honour of winning the title of best rink at round robin.

She continues to add to her successes and was a member of the recent round robin team, which was runner-up.

Underwood has worked hard to achieve success.

Living in the country means extra practice exercises at homeand less time with the State players and coaches, not to mention the extra travel required.

The BHAS club and the North Western area are proud that she is a part of the association and wishes her success at State level.

Congratulations: BHAS bowler Judy Underwood is now part of the South Australian team which plays various competitions around the country.
