Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

VET­ER­ANS GOLF: Nicola Apruzzese’s form is hot­ter than the Sa­hara Desert.

Apruzzese con­tin­ues to daz­zle his way through the Vet­er­ans Golf scene.

He en­joyed prize suc­cess for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive week af­ter pow­er­ing his way through the men’s sta­ble­ford event on Tues­day.

Apruzzese shot the lights out, record­ing an out­stand­ing score of 49 points, to fin­ish nine, yes nine clear of his near­est ri­val.

That was Peter Brown­ing, who carded 40 points.

Ken­neth Lovett, Trevor Paroz, Al­bert Pini, Wil­liam Jesser and Peter Fox fea­tured in the ball run down.

It was no sur­prise that Apruzzese won the nine-hole event with 27 points, five clear of Brown­ing.

NTP: Jim Dow­ell (2nd), Trevor Paroz (9th), Bill Woods (13th), Peter Lewis (16th).

In the ladies sta­ble­ford, Robyn Whitham was in out­stand­ing touch, scor­ing 44 points to pre­vail by a six shot mar­gin.

Beryl Nos­wor­thy fin­ished run­ner-up with 38 points.

NTP: Mandy Pat­ter­son (2nd), Jan Shuwalow (9th), Robyn Whitham (13th), Wendy Bradley (16th). SQUASH: An epic con­test be­tween Ta­nia Skaife and Deb­bie Brown high­lighted the lat­est round of Tues­day Ladies Squash.

The pair fought out a tough match that went to five games be­fore Skaife pre­vailed 3/39 to 2/31.

In other matches fea­tur­ing Team 3 against Team 4, Joy Vi­tanza sealed an im­pres­sive win against Di O’Don­nell 3/34 to 1/14, while Julie Mitchell was in ex­quis­ite form on her way to a dom­i­nant vic­tory against Ida Arici.

Team 1 played Team 2, with all three win­ners clear cut.

Leanne Hin­schen ac­counted for Alex Ogilvie-Knight 3/27 to 0/7, Louise Cox dis­played some qual­ity form to de­feat Brenda Cowan 3/27 to 0/10 and Pauline Ogilvie beat Mar­ian Church­ward 3/27 to 0/14.

Next week’s draw: 1v3,2 v4.

Or­der of play: 2, 3, 1.
