Loddon Mallee Table-Tennis Championships
Our junior girls Table-tennis team consisting of Kate Bennett, Kendall McLean, Savanna Kalms and Courtney Orwell competed in the Loddon Mallee Table-Tennis Championships which were held in Bendigo on Friday 24th October. The girls were accompanied by parent Donna McLean and travelled down with the Yr 7/8 Boys Basketball team together with other team representatives from the region.
While the girls only had the 1 game, against Catholic College Bendigo, they came out to play and were convincing winners on the day, winning 5 rubbers to 1, even with Catholic College shifting some of their seeding’s on the day to try and seek an advantage. Scores for the day were:
Kate Bennett 5 games to 0 - 56 points to 0.
Kendall McLean: 4 games to 1 – 52 points to 34
Savanna Kalms: 5 games to 0 – 55 points to 19, and
Courtney Orwell: 2 games to 3 – 38 points to 46
Kate and Kendall: 4 games to 1 – 52 points to 21, and
Savanna and Courtney: 3 games to 2 – 44 points to 40.
As a result of their performance, the girls qualify for the State finals which will be held on Wednesday November 19th at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre at Albert Park in Melbourne.
We would like to thank the girls for their behaviour and effort throughout the day and congratulate them for their success and wish them best of luck for the State Finals. We also would like to thank Donna McLean for volunteering her time to accompany the girls to Bendigo and for her guidance to the girls on the day.
