Josephine Lee of Burnaby placed second in the women's singles at the Canadian national lawn bowling championships in Montreal last week.
Lee, who bowls out of the Moody Park club in New Westminster, was defeated 21-10 by Shirley Fitzpatrick Wong of Manitoba in the women's singles final. Lee won a national indoor singles title in 2011.
Lee went 7-2 in round-robin play at the nationals. Her only defeats were to Quebec's Clair Sargent and Katherine Smith of Ontario. Lee defeated round-robin runner-up Fitzpatrick Wong 21-14 in the preliminary playdowns.
The silver medal was Lee's seventh medal at a Canadian championship, including four gold in mixed pairs. Lee, who has amassed a provincial record of nine gold, two silver and eight bronze in championship competition, has also competed internationally. In 2010, Lee placed seventh in women's singles at the Commonwealth Games in India.
Next month, Lee will compete at the Canadian mixed nationals in Peterborough, Ont. from Sept. 17 to 24.
