Bombala sports results roundup: Golf, athletics, basketball

Golf

On Wednesday a very small field of four ladies were brave (or stupid) to play on such a freezing cold day.

"Not sure how we hit the ball, all rugged up, but we all completed the 18 holes," Di Ingram said.

The winner was Jean McLean with 30 pts.

On Saturday members also had a very cold day with the sun not shining after a huge frost. The winner was Glen Hampshire +1. NTP on the 17th was won by Humble.

Members played a stroke for a Club Trophy on a lovely warm day and some very good scores were recorded.

Glen Hampshire continued his good golf winning with 67 nett. Ball winners were Glen, Pepper Thompson 68 nett, Col Gronow 68 nett and Wayne Elton 68 nett. Could be some changes to handicaps. NTP was won by Tony Brady.

Thirty Bombala Public School pupils braved the freezing cold conditions and headed to Cooma for the SMPSSA Athletics Carnival last Thursday. Despite the freezing conditions Bombala pupils performed extremely well.

Maicey Ross, Jake Ashton, Natalie Vincent, Deakin Ross, Mikayla Heward and Oliver Stephen all came away with ribbons and they will now represent the district at the regional carnival held in August.

Basketball

Bombala Public School pupils and teachers were on hand to support the boys' and girls' basketball teams in the second round of the PSSA knockout competition on Friday.

It was a competitive game as both teams played against Cooma Public School, persevering when scores were down and showing great humility when scores were up.

Bombala teacher Mr Rock said the girls' team of Lucy, Meg, Natalie, Dakota, Nikahli, Lily, Brandy, Meila and Ash took away the victory with a final score of 42 to 7.

The boys' team of Josh, Hayden, Deakin, Jake, Fred, Jay, and Jakob were unfortunately defeated 12 to 46. despite their great perseverance and teamwork on the day.

"Both teams were commended on their sportsmanship and representing their school with pride," he said.

A special thank you to those in the school and wider community who came to assist and support on the day.

The girls are now working hard towards their next goal in round four of the knockout. This game will be held again at Bombala against a Goulburn team on a date yet to be advised.
