Cartwheel Kate turns indoor queen
Merrylands’ Kate Carriage will contest this year’s Australian Indoor Championships after capturing the NSW leg of qualifying at Warilla yesterday.Fresh off her selection in the Australian A squad last month, Carriage progressed through a red-hot field before defeating Commonwealth Games silver medallist Claire Duke during a thrilling final which went to a tie-break.
Nonetheless, Duke, the 2004 Australian Indoor winner, also advances through to the main draw at Tweed Heads in August along with national teammate and three-time winner Karen Murphy.
Having captured the inaugural Australian under-18 singles title in 1998, Carriage barely touched a bowl for the best part of a decade before returning to top-flight competition in remarkable circumstances last year when she lit up the Australian Open in Shepparton.
Since then, the 29-year-old has gone from strength to strength and was delighted with her most recent win.
