Whiting Aiming For A Record 4th QLC Title

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Queensland Ladies Classic to be held at Caboolture Bowl this weekend will once again attract the best female bowlers in Australia for its 19th year.

With the two day tournament beginning on Saturday morning, bowlers will travel from across the country to compete at the ranked event which has developed a following on the national circuit.

In this yearís field, reigning champion Bec Martin, returns after her maiden victory at the event last year.

But, following a 4th placing at the Fishing World Ladies Classic and finishing 5th at the Vic150, the 37-year-old is still searching for her first win in 2017 and the conditions this weekend could suit the right hander.

However, on Sunday records could be made with Bec Whiting shooting for an unprecedented 4th QLC title this weekend after taking the honours at the tournament in 2010, 2011 and 2014.

After finishing 4th last year, Whiting will come into the tournament with plenty of confidence after defeating the best male bowlers in the country on her way to victory at the SA Cup in June.  With a victory at the Fishing World Ladies Classic and a 2nd placing at the Vic 150, the Australian representative will be the favourite come Sunday.

But on Sunday afternoon another bowler who knows how to win at Caboolture could find her way onto the podium.  Ballina bowler Emma Walsh will return having won the tournament in 2015 and finishing in 2nd place last year.  For Walsh who doesnít contest many ranked events the QLC is firmly marked on her calendar and her preparation will be tailored to this weekend.

With a strong field competing over the two days, of which also includes the likes of Dena Buxton and Narelle Baker it could come down to the wire on Sunday afternoon.
