Family polocrosse

RALDA Liesegang is playing with her eighth polocrosse club and loving it.

Yesterday, she played in the Clifton 2 mixed team in the third annual carnival organised by the Clifton club.

She first played at Rolleston in the 1970s, then Gatton College, Bauhinia, Toowoomba, Rosewood, Brooklands and Rockhampton before retiring for eight years.

Liesegang has moved around in her job as a meat inspector for the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service and took her children to a practice at the fledgling Clifton club and before she knew it, she was back in the saddle.

“Clifton is a good family club, we have heaps of juniors,” she said.

Host club Clifton fielded five teams and four sub-junior players in the weekend carnival which attracted 41 teams.

Tansey 1 won the A-grade competition after scoring a 17-12 victory against Warwick 1 in the last game.

Trent Collins, of Tansey, won best horse and rider in A-grade.
