Sports Results – ISA Summer Round 9
One week it’s too damn hot, the next week starts okay and then thunder, lightning and hail intervene! Ah the weather!.. Saturday’s serious early morning accident on the freeway at Colo Vale caused delays and uncertainty for teams travelling to and away from the Highlands. All matches except for one softball game were played, and the 1sts and 2nds cricket matches had to be abandoned as the heavens opened up.
Conditions for basketball were much more pleasant this week and the girls and boys who played certainly enjoyed being back on the court. The first teams on the road were our Softball 2nds and the Junior C Basketballers. Helen Close’s softball girls had a great win over St Andrew’s with Ella Cleary and Anna Petersen the stars. Likewise Deb Rossiter’s basketball girls who also went well against St Andrew’s.
In other softball games, Rob Graham’s 1sts and Kim Delaney’s Junior A girls were winners against Oxley. For the 1sts, Georgia Gillespie pitched a good game, Erin McGuinness did a great job as catcher and likewise Indy Rowley in the outfield. For the Junior A team, Laura Jamieson and Tessa McCord were the best.
The Boys’ Basketball A teams travelled to St Pius and just arrived in time after a very slow trip. Nevertheless the boys turned it on and all teams travelled home as winners. Not quite a clean sweep for the B Boys at home, with the 13s, 15s and 17s all winners. For the 13s, Sam de Haan was our best, as was Harry Fletcher for the 17s.
In the Girls’ Basketball at Moss Vale the Junior A and B teams had a great match against each other. The 1sts girls made everyone a bit too nervous with a great Barker comeback almost causing defibrillators to be called for! Overall a great team effort from the girls, claiming a win over the competition leaders.
In the only cricket match to get a result, the Chev 14s won against Bowral. Toby Smith was our star bowler and Lachlan Muldoon and Christian Giuliano batted well.
In other news, our Show Team was down the mountain on Friday at the Kangaroo Valley Show. In a good day of showing, parading and judging, Sophie Halliday was judged the best parader at the show and Darcy Howard was voted third overall in the judging competition.
These results mean that Sophie and Darcy have both qualified for the Royal Easter Show. Well done to Coach, Hayley Mahoney, and the Chev Show Team!
Let’s hope for a smooth sunny day this coming Saturday!
