NSW Ladies Team 2021

It was late 2019/early 2020 when the NSW Ladies State Team was being selected with the aim to compete in Bendigo at Easter 2020. This was to be the first composite (mixed discipline) NSW ladies team competing for the inaugural Shepherd Trophy (4 ranges 300y, 600y, 900y, 1000y  with each of 5 shooters having 10 counting shots). The competition was trialling the MCSI scoring system that does an equivalence between the various disciplines. Team Captain was Rebecca Shepherd, Wind Coach was Maureen Shepherd, and shooters were Alexina Bunt, Linda Sweet, Isabelle Cameron, Emma Kent, and Janet Beale (the sole Roseville RC rep on the team). Renee Hooper was the Reserve.

But due to Covid, things didn’t go to plan. Firstly, it was Easter 2021 when the 2020 match was actually held in Bendigo (which meant some substitutions to team members). Secondly, due to a last minute covid-hot spot definition, Queensland was unable to attend the competition, but the competition did proceed.

The wash up: ‘Victoria Blue’ won the competition on their home range, NSW came second due to some great wind coaching at 1000yds by the very experienced Maureen Shepherd. So how did our Roseville competitor do? Janet Beale was the top shooter in the NSW team (using the MCSI equivalency) and she was both the top scorer at 1000yds and top F-STD shooter across all teams.

Roseville RC looks forward to 2023 when some of our other lady shooters may also represent the State in Queensland.
