Badminton – SSV finals
Our girls and boys badminton teams encountered some tough opposition at the SSV finals at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre. All team members played very well on the day, but were unable to match the quality of their opposition. Both teams were defeated in their three round-robin matches, but the girls went very close to defeating Ballarat in their final game. Well done to both teams, and their coach Scott Collier.
Girls team: Olivia Graham, Sally Warren, Court Warren, Leanna Harrington, Sixiao Chen
Boys team: Mitch Kemp, Zhi Xu, Cheng’En Lin, Zhiling Liu
Mountain bike orienteering
Riley Hillier and Darcy Jacobs represented BSSC last Friday at the Victorian Schools Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships. Neither of the boys had competed in this type of event before, so it was great achievement for them to achieve a third placing in the pairs event. They located 19 of the 20 controls, and did not incur any time penalties by finishing the course inside the allocated two hours. Well done boys.
Table tennis – SSV finals
Our boys table-tennis team performed well at the SSV State Finals at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre. They encountered some very talented opposition in their round-robin matches, and were unable to qualify for the semi-finals. It was a great achievement to reach the state finals, after success in our local division and Loddon Mallee Region competitions. Well done to team members North Ketkaew, Dinghao Huo, Douglas Decker, Tyler Rainbow, and coach, Craig Woodward.
