Ladies Spring League

The last 2 weeks were tense in the ladies 12 hole Spring League and fighting nip and tuck for 1st place were teams 1 and 2. The scores for the penultimate week saw Team 1 creep in to first place by a mere 1 point! Scores in Team 1 came from Elaine Hamilton 26, Mary O’Toole 22 and Helen Connolly 22. Team 2 Martha O’Grady 22 (yeah! the team captain!) Noeleen McCague 24 and Anne McCarthy 23. Team 5 on 234 had scores from Teresa Hanawin 24 and 19′s from Lady Captain Brid and Celeste McKiernan. Team 3 Kathleen Leonard 20 Veronica McGorman 24 and 18 from Catherine Farrell. Finally Team 4 despite bringing up the rear for most of the competition still strove to compete and fabulous scores came in from Noirin McKenna 23, Doli Maguire 22 and Roberta Hamilton 17. The final week saw Elaine Hamilton playing every day to try and better her 25 points but alas….. Congratulations to Team 2 who hung on in there and produced some blistering scores in the final week to claim first place by 5 points despite a 1 point lag after week 4! Mary Trant 24, Noeleen McCague 25 and a hum dinger of a 27 from Anne McCarthy !! totalling 318 Well done to the rest of the team for all their hard work Anne Wrafter, Martha (team Captain) and Teresa (a miracle has happened since my accident) Fitzpatrick! A Great win! In 2nd place were Elaine Hamilton 25 (one of the best scorers of the tournament off 14!), Mary O’Toole 20 and Joy Cassidy 25 giving them 313 total. Well done to the other team members Bridie Keenan (team captain) Kathleen Gibbons, and Helen Connolly. Phew well that’s it for another season folks! Roll on the Winter League eh?
