Coona Girls are a Hit in the North West Softball Team

Congratulations to Hanna Meier and Maddy Heywood for their amazing efforts representing North West and Coonabarabran High School in the Combined High Schools Open Girls Softball Tournament held in Wagga Wagga last week.

It was a daunting task for the girls facing against teams from Sydney full of NSW softball representative players but Hannah and Maddy took on the challenge with determination, pride and beautiful sportsmanship. The amount of improvement in the girls was phenomenal; by the end of the gruelling week they were bunting, sliding, taking catches and calling the plays.

Great work girls you can be very proud of yourselves!

More Success for Tom Bowman

Last month Year 10 student Tom Bowman was selected to represent NSW Combined High Schools in the sport of Bowls.  As part of this State team, Tom travelled to Melbourne to play in an exchange series against a team representing Victorian schools at a three day carnival.  On the first day the two state squads were divided into teams of 5 who then played against all other teams.  After all games Tom’s team progressed through to the final, which they won to be overall champions and received the gold medal.  The second day’s competition was along similar lines with teams competing in a 4’s competition.  Again Tom’s team was successful which secured him a second gold medal.  The last day was the Triples competition where Tom’s team was placed 3rd, earning a Bronze medal.  This competition was viewed as a National Schools’ Championship which means Tom is now a dual national schools champion.

Congratulations to Tom on his ongoing dedication and success in the sport of Bowls.

State Bowls Selection

Coonabarabran High School student Tom Bowman has been selected in the NSW Combined High Schools Bowls team after competing in the state championships at Warilla.

Tom and his younger brother Sam were part of the North West team which had been selected earlier in the year. Both players performed strongly throughout the State Carnival and the North West team eventually finished in 7th position.

At the conclusion of the carnival Tom’s consistent performances were recognised with selection in the State Team. This team will travel to Melbourne in 3 weeks to play against Victoria in a series of matches. Tom has worked diligently for a number of years and his efforts are now rewarded with selection as a NSW Combined High Schools representative.
