News Team Henselite Nick McIntyre Victoria's New Pairs Champion
April 27, 2010

Bundoora RSL's Nick McIntyre has become Team Henselite's latest Victorian Champion, skipping his club mate, Mario Cipolla, to victory in the 2010 State Pairs final last week. The pair started off slowly, trailing their opponents 11-3 after 8 ends but they soon managed a stunning turn around. Two conversion shots from McIntyre in the 10th and 11th ends produced successive fours and they continued on their winning way to take out the 18-end final 20-13.

"It was really good to win" said McIntyre after the event. "Mario and I both used Dreamlines which were a real advantage to us, staying stable in the windy conditions."

"I've had a couple of runner-ups before so it was good to finally win one. It tops off a good year at the Club with us winning the Division 1 Premiership."

Held at Darebin City Bowls Club, the State Pairs Championship was part of Victoria's inaugural "Champions Week" which saw several State titles decided including the Singles which went to Team Henselite's Brett Dodd.
