Excitement was offered at the Bavarian championship of sports bowlers in the "sprint". The "Sudden Victory" had to decide several times – even when it came to gold.
Augsburg – At the Bavarian Championships in singles, Regina Resch recently missed out on a medal by a razor-thin margin as fourth in the U23 competition. In the "Sprint" discipline (2 x 20 throw), the bowler from Paterzell has now made it onto the podium: The 21-year-old, who competes for Schwarz-Gelb Schongau, won the silver medal in the women's title fights.
A lot of excitement at the sprint championship in Augsburg
In the final, Resch had to admit defeat to Corina Bese (KV Bamberg) by a very narrow margin. The decision was made - after both players had won a set - in the "Sudden Victory": There, Resch was just behind with 16:20 wood. In the two sets taken together, the priest had scored the larger number of wood (182:167). However, in the sprint it is the set points that count first, only in the "Sudden Victory" is it about the wood numbers. As runner-up, Regina Resch has secured a starting place at the German Championships (17/18 June in Lorsch).
In the semi-finals, Regina Resch had to contest an intra-family duel with her sister Ramona Resch (FC Seeshaupt); she prevailed with 2:0 sets (193:185 wood). Ramona Resch then had to admit defeat in the bronze medal match against Kathrin Hüther (SKV Bad Neustadt) in the "Sudden Victory" (14:21). In the quarter-finals, Regina Resch had won in an extra-long "Sudden Victory" against Saskia Koch (KV Bayreuth) – the Black and Yellow player won with 41:37 wood.
