Impressive final at tournament
- The Southern Lakes tennis side emphatically won the Southern teams’ quadrangular tournament with a big 10-2 win over Otago in the final at Queenstown on Sunday. The side, comprising Lan Bale, Mark Milburn, James Smith, Graham Smith, Felicity Oxnevad, Sumo Ito-Sheehan, Sarah Patterson, and Hannah Speight, outclassed Southland 11-1 on Saturday before being equally as impressive in the final. - Queenstown is the only unbeaten side after two rounds of the Scurr Cup Twenty/20 cricket competition after its three-wicket win over Albion on Saturday. The side bowled well to restrict Albion to 120 for five after its 20 overs, before timing its run to perfection to take the game out. Its game, with newcomers Slopehill this weekend at the Events Centre, should be a cracker. - Bill and Kaye Hodge took out the Arthur Barnett and McGregors mixed pairs bowls tournament in Wanaka over the weekend, holding off some strong opposition in the process. Mike Barnett and Colleen Landsborough finished in second place, while Brett Simpson and Min Mayen took out third place.
BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME
Queenstown bowler K Tomlinson came extremely close to progressing to the semi-final of the Rowena Jackson tournament over the weekend, but instead had to be content with a 11-12 loss to fellow Queenstowner Mary O’Connor, who went on to narrowly lose the final.
