Juanita Tucker fought her way through the largest field to the Gold Medal in 2009 Bocce Ball as the NW La. District Senior Olympics moved into the month of May.

Tucker won the women’s 70-74 title by surviving pool play and then sweeping the championship round over Jacque Wall (Silver) and Janet Cloud (Bronze).

In matter-of-fact fashion, Harry Strain, Doyle Blasingame and Dick Hainey claimed men’s gold medals in their age brackets without losing a game.
