NSW win title at The Australian Sides Championships.
New South Wales have capped off a stellar Australian Sides Championships in Bendigo today, finishing the time-honoured tournament in pole position of both genders and claiming the overall honours.
In the women's competition, NSW is basking in its seventh Mark Morris Trophy win after toppling ACT 85-45 to finish ahead of host state Victoria by one and a half rinks.
With the three states log-jammed at the top of the ladder entering the deciding round, little could separate the three states going into the last round, with a dominant finish to proceedings giving the Blues their second back-to-back victory since the women's inception in 1979.
Unsurprisingly, Australian Jackaroo Kelsey Cottrell clinched the best-performed skip accolade on a count back, ahead of her state and national teammates Natasha Van Eldik and Karen Murphy.
As a result of the Alley Shield and Marj Morris wins, the Blues also secured a unique three peat of the Overall State Champions Trophy, the first state since 2009 to attain all three sets of Sides silverware in the one year.
The Big V was relocated to second position on the overall rankings, again finishing agonisingly close to the ultimate prize, with two wins across both disciplines separating the two states.
