Yeah, not well presented, forces one to make assumptions which may not be right. The only pies mentioned are "fruit pies", "apple pie" and "blueberry pie". Apple is a fruit, but blackberry isn't ...

Mrs. Bly could not have won the blackberry, because it isn't a fruit. Saying that Mrs. Wig's blueberry pie is better than her other pies does NOT mean she won in that category - it all depends on the level of competition in each category.

There is not enough to solve, but you could guess:

Mrs Bly: Apple

Mrs. Wig: Blueberry

Mrs. Jones: Chicken and Mushroom (why not )
