Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Pinnacles Of Success

It all started on Friday when Harry Craig played in the District play off for the All Schools Cup Challenge for St Catherine's School down at North Mackay.  

Harry and his team partner Alfie Moretto won their section and will be representing the Whitsunday region at Pine Rivers later this year.

Champion of Champion Fours were played at Mackay Club this weekend.  

First game was against Sarina with our boys winning 24-22; then game Airlie Beach with Proserpine winning 24- 13.

Semi Finals were against Northern Beaches where the game was drawn at the end of 21 ends and went into an extra end which Proserpine won.  

Final was against Souths Suburban.  Proserpine was in the lead for most of the game, but an end lost close to the conclusion put Souths into the lead.  

Two shots were needed to draw the game in the final end and send it into a deciding end, one shot was scored.  

Final score 254-25.  

Well done Michael Kinnear, Luchie Gardel, Grahame Kinnear and Barry Saroglia taking out Runners Up in the District Champion of Champion 4s.

In Club Competition on Saturday, a game of the Club Championship Triples was played.

Dale Haack, Shane Kinnear and Wayne Handley defeated Marcus Craig, Toby Craig and Gavin Milne 20 - 19 in what must have been a nail biter of a game.

Good bowling to Heather Brown who is contesting the Champion of Champion Singles at St Helens this week.
