News Team Henselite Team Henselite - Winners at the QLD Open
August 8, 2011

Helensvale's Mark Casey took out the coveted Queensland Open Men's Singles title at Ipswich Bowls Club last week when he beat Victorian teenager and Henselite team-mate, Aaron Wilson, 10-5, 8-2 in the final.

Mark, who used Henselite Alphas throughout the tournament was relieved to emerge from the final victorious.  “I’m just ecstatic with the win,” he told Bowls Australia.  “For some reason this week I felt no pressure out there, I just wanted to prove something to myself that I am still good enough. It’s relieving.”

Mark Caey was joined on the winners list by Helensvale clubmates, Nathan Rice and Anthony Kiepe.

Nathan Rice, using ABT-evos, took out the Men's Pairs Title with Leif Selby with the duo repeating their success in the triples alongside Team Henselite's Anthony Kiepe.

The Pairs and Triples wins have made 2011 a remarkable year for Nathan. With a return to career best form, he picked up QLD State Titles in the Singles and Fours, won the Victorian Masters Singles and earned himself a recall to the Australian squad. 

All eyes will now be on Tweed Heads BC this week to see which of Australia's top bowlers can pick up the Golden Nugget Prestige Invitational Singles title.
