16 Newlands students attended the recent CSW Open Indoor Bowls Championship and competed across the Championship pairs and Novice pairs competition.
7 pairs were involved in the Novice event with Maximo Morrone and Siale Vea (both Y9) making the main final before losing to Heretaunga. Meanwhile Dalen and Natasha Pilitati (Y13) made it through to the Plate final before losing a close game to the Pararaparaumu pair.
Reece Edgecombe and Dominico Kelekolio (Both Y10) were the only Newlands team involved in the Championship pairs. In qualifying they won all their gamess before overcoming Taita 4-3 in a tense semi final. In the final they had a much easier time beating Onslow 12-4.
Congratulations to all the students that attended especially those that made the finals.
