Townsville Bulletin - - Sports Junior -

STU­DENTS in the cricket de­vel­op­ment squad at Ig­natius Park Col­lege had the chance to fi ne tune their bowl­ing skills dur­ing a Fast Bowl­ing Road Show clinic re­cently. The two-hour session was run by Queens­land Cricket’s Vic Wil­liams and for­mer Queens­land Bulls player Joe Dawes. Dur­ing the session, the play­ers worked on their strength and con­di­tion­ing skills, bowl­ing plans and also strength and con­di­tion­ing to pre­vent in­juries. Ig­natius Park Col­lege teacher Tim Lin­de­berg said the play­ers had learnt a lot of new skills. “ Nor­mally they just prac­tice in the nets, so to learn the phys­i­o­log­i­cal and body side was benefi cial,’’ Lin­de­berg said. “ In a game they nor­mally just bowl, but now they have been taught to plan their bowl­ing.’’ Eigh­teen boys were part of the session all aged be­tween 13 and 17 years.
