Teresa Hogg overcame her inexperience to win Bowls Wairarapa's Wairarapa Electrical women's open 2012-13 singles title.
Hogg, who has been playing the sport for less than five years, met Dorothy Christensen in the final and they had a battle royal, the lead see-sawing on several occasions before Hogg secured a 22-19 victory.
The plate section was won for the second successive year by Jean Paku, who defeated Mary Jackson in the final.
