Quigley Captures 8th Lawn Bowling Singles Title
Sunny skies and spirited competition greeted the lawn bowlers at the 2008 Maryland Senior Olympics event Sept. 7-8 at Leisure World in Silver Spring. Many of the same folks who competed in shuffleboard were back to face each other in lawn bowling, albeit with a slightly smaller field due to the one-day rain delay.

For Catherine Quigley, 87, of Silver Spring, winning the 85-89 age group singles was very old hat. It was her eighth lawn bowling singles gold medal, dating to 1999. She also has four doubles golds along with two silvers and a bronze in triples.

Susan Habig of Laurel added to her precious medal count of the weekend, capturing her second straight gold in the women’s 60-64 singles. She paired with D. Carlene Jarbo of Mechanicsburg for her third straight doubles title. Ms. Habig also won two gold medals in shuffleboard.

Perhaps the big upset of the tournament came in the men’s 75-79 singles, where Bert Conger of Kensington moved up to the 75-79 age group. Holder of six prior singles golds, he was defeated by Douglas Worthing of Rockville. Mr. Conger had defeated Mr. Worthing for the 70-74 gold in 2006.

Other repeat winners from 2006 were George Izumi (65-69), William Herndon (80-84), Enid Williams (80-84) and the doubles team of Izumi and Gloria Hong (65-69).
