Carnival success for St Mary's
ST MARY'S has won the senior division in the Catholic Primary Schools Netball Carnival in Toowoomba for the first time.
Last Friday at Nellie Robinson Park, St Mary's won the open/year seven and year six titles and came third in the year five age group.
St Mary's teacher Bridget Wells coached all three teams and said it was the third year the Warwick-based school had won two of the three titles.
“Both the year seven and year six teams were unbeaten on the day,” Wells said.
“St Mary's lost two games in the year five age group.
“St Saviour's is usually our toughest opposition but Dalby was tough in year six this year.”
ASSUMPTION College, Warwick, and St Joseph’s, Stanthorpe, are fielding a combined team in the Confraternity Shield rugby league competition at Runcorn this week.
Its best performance on the first two days was a 24-8 loss to Ipswich school St Peter Claver College.
Bob Bell is the St Joseph’s/Assumption coach and Dave Fleming.
The team of 20 boys is one of 40 teams playing in the rugby league carnival.
Best players awards have been won so far by Rick McGahan, Eamon Brownlie, Travis Burton and Denis Reynolds. The carnival finishes tomorrow.
