Last Friday our State Bowls Team were invited to attend at the Victorian Schools Super Series Lawn Bowls Championships held at the MCC Bowls Club in Hawthorn. This event is between the top teams from the following schools:-Associated Catholic Colleges, Southern Independent Schools, Eastern Independent Schools, Associated Public Schools of Victoria, Associated Gramma Schools of Victoria, Christian Schools Event Network and the Ballarat Associated Schools.
Our team consisted of Jack Hookway, Noah Mungean and Rhys Ziegelaar, and coached by Mr. Michael Nixon. We bowled our first game against St. Peters College (Southern Independent School) and were defeated 9 – 2.Then came a draw 3 – 3 in our second game against Assumption College (Associated Gramma Schools of Victoria); and won our third game – 8 – 3 against Mazenod College (Associated Catholic Colleges). This qualified us to compete in the Pool C Consolation Final against Fitzroy which we won 8 – 6.
The boys gained great experience from this event, and it was an honour to compete against a lot of the bigger schools, and still do very well. From this event the top four teams then gained entry to represent Victoria at the Australian Schools Super Series, which we just missed out on.
