LITHGOW’S women’s masters number one team travelled to Wagga Wagga to compete in the half state tournament.
Although they only lost one game the women failed to make it through to the final.
The good news from the Vet’s Masters’ tournament was the selection of Lithgow’s Robyn Millar and Cheryl Rutherford who travelled to Newcastle to trial for the NSW Masters teams.
Millar was successful in gaining a position in the over 35 masters team and Rutherford was again named in the over 50 team.
For Millar, who decided to trial for the first time, it is her debut masters’ representation while Rutherford has been a part of the furniture in masters teams for many years, both NSW and Australian.
Former Lithgow player Laurel Muldoon was also selected in the over 45s team.
Muldoon played with the Lithgow side during the half state tournament.
The trio will travel to Melbourne to compete in the National Masters Tournament commencing on September 28.
“It is very exciting and I am particularly excited for Robyn who will be experiencing her first NSW representation,” Rutherford said.
“There were a number of other Lithgow girls who should have trialed, as they would have been a good chance.”
Lithgow achieved mixed results at the Wagga Wagga tournament with too many draws being their downfall.
