The WTBA women’s side, featuring Trish Beasley, Jenny McKane (manager), Sue Hall, Sherene Sheen, Glenda Dixon and Kerrie Fletcher, finished the three-day tournament with 74.5 points and were edged out by Bendigo, which finished on 85 points. 

Jenny McKane said it was hard to pick a standout from her team.
