Lawn Bowls

It was set! After an aggressive, hard fought battle against Frankston Secondary to win SMR  , McKinnon's awesome foursome were through to the State Finals on October 11th at Darebin State Bowls Club.   As the year quickly progressed the 11th rolled around like Maille Todd's left hooker!.  In typical Melbourne spring weather, the day dealt us blustery bitter winds.  Despite this the team were on cloud nine as Nick Whittaker's right handers were 'on fire'.

The first game was against Bacchus Marsh College.  It was fast paced with James 'Jimmy' Robershaw revealing to the opposition his secret right spinner.  However, the game was not meant to be in McKinnon's favour and sadly  they lost by a narrow margin.  After a quick drinks break on Jimmy, the much need caffeine kicked in with some beautiful shots by both Phoebe and Maille.  Although the team fought valiently, mother natures winds provided a disadvantage.  The team fell short by a point, going down to reigning champions Cobden Tech School. The last pool match was set against a sociable John Monash.  Again, all members proved their position in the team by showing off their talents.  A special mention to Nicky W. for the final bowl of the day , causing some confusion over which team progressed to the semis.

Unfortunately, It was not MCK's day.

Congratulations to the four team members who continued to give 110%  throughout the day , and as Hoops said " That's what counts" On that note , many thanks go to Mrs Hooper for her determination and continuous support of the team.  Thanks also to McKinnon Bowls for lending us some impressive equipment to use.  #McKBowls ...
