Gayn­dah rep­re­sents re­gion

Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

TOUCH: The Gayn­dah ju­nior touch team re­cently com­peted at the Ju­nior State Cup Car­ni­val in Her­vey Bay, do­ing the Bur­nett proud.

The car­ni­val has been a long stand­ing tra­di­tion for the club with Gayn­dah rep­re­sent­ing for the past seven years.

Gayn­dah had 27 kids who com­peted in Her­vey Bay.

Ju­nior co-or­di­na­tor for Gayn­dah, Lisa Dar­ling­ton said the teams played well in Her­vey Bay.

“We brought three teams from Gayn­dah and com­bined with Childers,” Dar­ling­ton said.

“A cou­ple of teams also played from Her­vey Bay, we no­ticed that we’re not the strong­est when we go away but ev­ery­one played well and rep­re­sented their re­gion in a good man­ner.”

The un­der 14 team for Gayn­dah had a win against Ip­swich, with the score 2–1.

“This was the first time the team had ever won with the un­der 14 which was ex­cel­lent news,” Dar­ling­ton said.

“Our un­der 12 girls didn’t have any wins and went down 14–7.”

The ju­nior sea­son is about to get started with sign on next Wed­nes­day, July 19, from 4pm at the Gayn­dah sports grounds.

The sea­son will cost $30. “It’s a great way to im­prove your fit­ness,” Dar­ling­ton said.

“We’d en­cour­age kids to par­tic­i­pate in the ju­nior touch team as you get to par­tic­i­pate as part of a team and it’s for all abil­i­ties.

“It’s very af­ford­able for fam­i­lies within the North Bur­nett re­gion.”
