The club's activities for 2019 get under way next Wednesday February 6 with the first of our summer twilight series. With a slight departure from recent years, these 4 events will have a score course format with a time limit of 45 minutes. If warranted by the number of participants, the results will be split into a small number of age categories so everyone will have chance.
The arena for the first event is the corner of Lynches Road and Judith Street near the netball courts. The course will be suitable for all ages but young children should be accompanied by an adult as the course will involve several street crossings.
Approximately 585 primary students from 7 Armidale schools converged on Sunnyside Road Stock Reserve this year to compete for the PSSA trophy for best overall school. The competition was quite close this year with regular attendees TAS Junior School narrowly beating NEGS Junior School, who have not competed in the event for a few years.
|School||Yr 34 score||Yr 56 score||Yr 56 line||Overall|
In addition to the primary competition there were also 116 secondary students competing for individual trophies.
In the competition for individual/team trophies, it was a clean sweep for Armidale City in the Year 5&6 Easy line course, and almost so for Duval High School in the senior divisions, with Claude Toakley and Sebastian Stoessel from O'Connor Catholic College just managing to claim third place in the Year 7&8 Moderate line course.
