Meet the Players – Part 2

by Bowls ACT on September 8, 2023

In the lead-up to The Nationals Bowls ACT will be taking a look at our representative players, with thanks to representative partners Westcoast Bowls

Team Morrison – Womens Open

Some of the ACT’s young superstars combine to create a formidable line-up!

Lead Kristen Steele is now a representative regular and will be looking to build on a big 2022 campaign. The Weston Creeker is a skillful draw bowler who has the ability to setup the contest and swing games in the ACT’s favour.

Second Kel Cartledge will be ready to do damage in this team. The Queanbeyan RSL member is rarely kept quiet, either on or off the green, and has the game to make a real impact at this level.

Jess Hogan is welcomed back into the ACT ranks as third for this team. The former AO pairs runner-up and recent Invitational Singles semi-finalist is hungry for more success and will look to take the competition by the scruff of the neck with her excellent all-round game.

Skip Chloe Morrison has the game and the experience to dominate contests at all levels. The current Emerging Jackaroo has got a great game and will be full of confidence following some big recent scalps, none greater than Kelsey Cottrell at the Australian Indoor Singles Finals. This is a team which other states will be wary of and won’t want to draw against!

Team Bacchetto – Womens Open

An experienced, dynamic and classy combination show the strength of ACT Bowls with champions in all positions!

Leeanne Birch will play lead for the classy foursome. The Queanbeyan RSL representative has runs on the board at all levels of the sport and knows what it takes win sides games. A fine analyst of the sport, Leeanne will be sure to get this team off to consistently strong starts.

Second Di Marquet is another player who knows what representative bowls is all about. The Weston Creek member and current ACT Pairs Champion (with Sharon Steele) possesses a game well suited to this role and will keep everyone up-beat with her ever positive attitude.

Weston Creeker and other half of the ACT Pairs Champions Sharon Steele will play as a formidable third in this team. She too has vast experience as a representative player and will be looking to give an armchair ride to her skip.

Yass member Marg Bacchetto returns as skip after a highly impressive 2022 campaign and will be looking to continue from the outstanding results of last year, with this rink claiming some major scalps including SA & Victoria. This is a team which has plenty of big-game experience and will be looking to show off their skills on a national stage.
