Geneva Strain dominated the Women’s 65-69 age bracket of the NW La. District Senior Olympics bocce ball championship April 30, but it took scoring differentials to determine the silver and bronze medal winners.

Strain won three and lost one in round robin play. Nancy Dusaul took the silver medal, and Diane Smith the bronze after they and Jo Ann Blasingame each had two wins and two losses.

Smith and Dusaul were playing in their first tournament and finished strong in the round robin.

Other age group winners in the women’s division were Fern Belton, Beth Thompson, Juanita Tucker and Teresa Howard in women’s and Dick Hainey and Gerry Robichaux in men’s.

Thompson and partner Betty Dark bested Juanita Pinion and Jackie Conner in the lone doubles match completed before rain washed the tournament out.
