Coached by Suzie Mitchell, the team went through the three day championships undefeated, and with the 13 and under team making the championship decider and falling fi ve goals short and the 17s also advancing to the semi fi nals, the future of Western Border netball is alive and well. Herrewyn rides to Victorian race win MOUNT Gambier Cycling Club members competed in a range of competitions in Victoria over the long weekend. Five riders competed in the Anchor Point Glenn Cook Memorial on Saturday. The ride was a 62km course with 25 minutes from limit to scratch riders. It was Ashley Herrewyn who rode hard and took out the race, with Darryl Patzel rushing over the line in fi fth. Lawrie “Spek” Peake crossed the line just behind Scott Waters with both claiming ninth and 10th placings. Sean Angus put in the hard yards, yet just missed out on the top 10. On Sunday, riders travelled to Port Fairy to participate in the Graham Woodrup 75km Memorial Road Race. Tyler Walsgott and Robert Mann joined Herrewyn, Angus, Patzel, Waters and Peake in the fi ercely fought competition. Patzel was consistent, claiming another fi fth spot but it was Sean Angus with his fast fi nish who gave the scratchman and eventual winner Darcy Woolley some competition to claim second. Junior riders Jack Patzel and Josh and Luke Waters also fronted up for some tough competition of their own. Both days Jack Patzel contested in 20km races and started from the scratch mark. While not able to catch the limit markers both races saw him contest sprints for minor places which he fi nished fi fth and fourth on the respective days. The Under 11/13 combined to ride 10km Saturday and 8km Sunday. With numbers being large in the age group the competition was heavy, with some elite and fast young riders. Josh Waters held out to claim fastest in the two races from scratch mark, while his brother Luke placed eighth both days. The nine goal grand final margin for the 15s was its equal closest for the tournament with all 10 other games blowing out to double fi gures and in some cases to 20-plus margins. With state 15 and under goal shooter Mary Wilson at one end and former SAPSASA state player Olivia Dukalskis patrolling the defensive end, the 15s had great bookends, and the Cyclists head interstate for long-weekend rest of the talent pool was also impressive. The championship winning team also included Emily Pietsch, Keah Lynch, Lauren Ross, Lauren Pike, Madison Turner, Felicity Clayton, Sara Smith and Sophie Ferguson. Coached by Sharon Adams the runner-up 13 and under line-up included Isabelle Turner, Jordyn Adams, Imogen Walker, Madisyn Freeman, Hannah Nulty, Molly Watson, Tyne Bosko, Olivia Patzel, Nyah Allen and Tayla Werchon. The 17 and under team, coached by Leanne Ottram, included Alex Walker, Tori Perry, Mollie Muhovics, Eilish McKay, Danika Jolley, Lucy Walker, Taylah Guthrie, Claire Outtram and Bailey Watson. The girls will now head to Ballarat this Sunday for the opening rounds of the Victorian William Loud Championships. Hannah Witherow comes into the 13 and under line-up for this championship with Nyah Allen and Tyne Bosko being recalled to Adelaide for State SAPSASA trials.
