State Triples 2020/21
I'm going to try something a bit different and post my thought as to who might make up the 4 semi finalists instead of each section. I will post my winners in each section as well but with no commentary

Semi-finalist 1 Buchanan, Krstic, Packer, Smith, Williams, Nairn - The best backed teams skippered by Nairn and Packer might clash in the quarter final and every possibility the winner of that game may take the title. Both have difficult sections to overcome though. Sections 1 & 2 also hard to pick a winner but I think the semi finalist will come from Section 3 or 4. I'm going to go for the Nairn combination.
Semi-finalist 2 Moyle, Biddle, Bessant, Adams, McGinlay, Trewhella, Masel - Another loaded group, Section 6 is a tough section to choose the winner. Adams, Bessant and McGinlay all good players with good teams. Trewhella has a good side to take it all the way as well, 3 state level players. I'm going for the Moyle combination though, solid leader, great skipper and an exceptional middle man.
Semi-finalist 3 Giudice-Nairn, Caffell, Ball, Slavich, Stevens, Hoffman - Triples to me is all about the combinations, the leader is most important to me, and it's hard to go past the Slavich team. Proven Triples winners they are two-time Masters Triples winners, 3 players who would fit into the state team easily and they work well together. Section 9 looks tough to pick with 3 good teams but John Slavich for mine
Semi-finalist 4 East, Criddle, Douthie, Hyatt, Alden, Brown, Novak, Rankin - Section 17, wow, haven't they saved the best until last. Easy to suggest the winner of this section will likely be our semi-finalist, they play the alignment as well so will be match hardened by the semi final stage. Some very solid combinations in this group of 5 sections as well, but my selection will be the Rankin team.

Section 1

Irene Arndt Lisa Brannan Jenny Parker
Beverley Davidson Debbie Smith Jennifer Joyce
Bridget Michell Michele Waddell Judith Walker
Robyn Marland Patience Hoad Lee Gray
The Irene Arndt led team looks the goods here, up against some country players and I have no doubts that they will be worth watching. But we know the quality of her team both state team members, they should go through
My Selection - Irene Arndt
IrArndt 88.37%, BeDavidson 6.98%, BrMichell 0%, RoMarland 4.65%

Section 2

Lyn Scott Norma Cox Kerry Johnston
Debbie Maxwell Stella Dyson Dale Maxwell
Vicki Eva Cathie Smith Catherine Chappelle
Kristina Krstic Hailey Packer Robyn Obrien
You would have to assume the storming Manning team will take out this section and also go through right to the pointy end. No exciting insights here, we all know the abilities of all the Manning players and it would take some fairly outstanding bowls to knock them out at this stage.
My Selection - Kristina Krstic
LyScott 0%, DeMaxwell 2.33%, ViEva 0%, KrKrstic 97.67%

Section 3

Jennie Bruce Lea Mias Alexandra Harris
Kelli Wray Kerry Hutchinson Wendy Flack
Klaire Hughes Michelle Dixon Nikki Athienides
Toni Madigan Lee Bunney Robin Higgins
I see Kelli Wray making her first foray into a State competition for quite awhile, I believe injury has kept her out. She has got some very handy Sorrento names in her team, they should be very competitive. However, the other teams also have some very good players, we have State Squad members, ladies going far in 100Up, heaps of great teams here. It makes it damn hard to just choose one lot to go through. I think this will be a tight section but I'm going for Jennie Bruces team to end up on top.
My Selection - Jennie Bruce
JeBruce 9.3%, KeWray 13.95%, KlHughes 0%, ToMadigan 76.74%

Section 4

Lisa Smith Jess Moyle Ruby Leggett
Norah Whittle Alison Smith Anne Sauerwein
Helen Stevens Pam Chalmers Kaitlin Tyrrell
Val Cox Carole Roe Annette Campbell
A couple of State Squad members turning up in this section as well, I suspect all sections will have someone with a State moniker to her name. I reckon the experience of Helen Stevens and team will win out here but look to Jess Moyle and Ruby Leggett to be at the pointy end of state games soon enough. Are they in the State Academy?
My Selection - Helen Stevens
LiSmith 0%, NoWhittle 2.33%, HeStevens 97.67%, VaCox 0%

Section 5

Diane Hudson Dorothy Glass Shirley Dejong
Liz Ritchie Karen Weir Diana O'mara
Lee Poletti Vicki Spragg Noelene Abe
Janet Cocks Rhonda Prosser Debbie Rhine
Yet another section with too many great players in it to make a clean decision. Dot Glass crops up in the winning end of a lot of Country events, and the North Beach team of Premier players is hard to go past. But I reckon I'll go for Lee Poletti's team, Noelene is always a hard lady to beat whether she is leading or skipping.
My Selection - Lee Poletti
DiHudson 0%, LiRitchie 0%, LePoletti 95.35%, JaCocks 4.65%

Section 6

Kaye Blackwell Kerry Andersen Rinske Butcher
Beverley Baker Wendy Stower Trish Cunningham
Kerrie Hudson Kerry Godden Kaye Hughes
Gail Botting Helen Paganoni Anne Cashmore
Kerry Andersen eschewing her Mosman Park team mates is playing with some very good North Beach players, if you are going to go in a composite team, why not Kaye Blackwell and Rinkse Butcher? The Mosman Park team however is very very strong and they will probably remind her why she should be back with them. Mosman Park for me
My Selection - Beverley Baker
KaBlackwell 48.84%, BeBaker 48.84%, KeHudson 2.33%, GaBotting 0%

Section 7

Vicky Ellis Leonie Wilson Maree Lumsden
Renate Coote Shelley Radcliffe Jacinta Zadow
Margaret Anderson Sue Kondratjuk Debra Whitely
Sally Wilke Belinda Lehman Saffronne Alden
Again some very good names here but is anyone going to go past the current 100Up winner? Certainly not me
My Selection - Renate Coote
ViEllis 0%, ReCoote 65.12%, MaAnderson 6.98%, SaWilke 27.91%

Section 8

Kathleen Gobbart Noeleen Keeffe Julie Savell
Irene Kozak Jenni Stretton Lyn Plater
Christine Ace-Watson Irene Leahy Jill Adam
Sue Watkins Faye O'Brien Jan Gleeson
Although my first inclination is to choose Kathy Gobbart and team, I reckon the Chris Ace-Watson team is the one that will make it here. She is obviously very good under pressure and her form is out of sight right now.
My Selection - Chris Ace-Watson
KaGobbart 18.6%, IrKozak 2.33%, ChAceWatson 76.74%, SuWatkins 2.33%

Section 9

Helen Morss Therese Hastings Helen Heal
Barbara Hiller Adrienne Bellairs Sharyee Hayes
Sian Smith Julie Watson Brenda Killisch von Horn
Maggie Newton Karyn Mears Erica Andersson
We may not have seen much of Helen Morss this year at the pointy end in State events however that does not mean she will have lost any of her fire and ability. Couple her up with Therese and Helen Heal, it's a formidable combo that will be hard to beat.
My Selection - Helen Morss
HeMorss 90.7%, BaHiller 4.65%, SiSmith 2.33%, MaNewton 2.33%

Section 10

Sandra Young Shelley Worth Zelda Carlson
Barbara Lorencs Pauline Marsden Elizabeth Marshall
Mandy Heiner Rhonda Porter Di Bryans
Shari Solly Shaan Saunders Amanda Masters
Shaan and Amanda have really had a bumper year this year so far, and it's not over yet. Skippered by the very capable Shari Solly, they will want to bring home a State title and they certainly have the ability to do it.
My Selection - Shari Solly
SaYoung 0%, BaLorencs 0%, MaHeiner 2.33%, ShSolly 97.67%

Section 11

Nie Archer Gail Eccelstone Judy Flanagan
Lisa Featherby Laura Merz Linda Warburton
Jessica Enright Jennifer Jones Susan Collins
Elaine Meehan Brooke Chaney Shirley Johnston
And we finish it off with the current Pairs Champions, gathering Laura Merz into their fold. I believe Jess Enright is part of the State Academy, I am unsure of the rest of her team but I would assume so. Will Linda be able to forget that she is their mentor and coach? Who knows! I suspect that won't stop her from getting through.
My Selection - Lisa Featherby
