VOLLEYBALL TEAMS THROUGH TO LODDON MALLEE FINALS
Congratulations to the BSSC volleyball teams which have both progressed to the Loddon Mallee Region finals after winning Friday’s Sandhurst Division competition. The girls had a comfortable win against Marist College Bendigo but had to fight hard to overcome Catherine McAuley College in three sets. The boys won their two matches quite easily.
Girls team: Talitha Alexander, Maddie Betts, Chloe De Salvo, Susie Godfrey, Caitlin Johns, Jamie Targett, Lisa Ung, and coach Kate Eason
Boys team: Dillon Gauci, Bryce Guley, Lachie Hill, Tarran Kilcullen, Lachie Parkinson, Matt Poulter, Jack Ryan, Jack Sides, Tom Wigney, and coach Jimmy Shelton

GOLF – LODDON MALLEE REGION EVENT
BSSC had five representatives in this week’s Loddon Mallee Region golf event at Bendigo Golf Club – Jarrett Miles, Mitch Kemp, Lachie Jackson, Mitch Hogan, and Cooper Aisbett-Wright. This was a qualifying event for the State Final early next term. Jarrett Miles produced the best score from the BSSC team (one-over par), which should be good enough to earn him a place in the State Final. Well done to all competitors.
