Cattle Club

Bridie Shooter | Cattle Club Captain

The Cattle Club headed off to their last regional show, over the weekend – the Toowoomba Royal Show.  Toowoomba presented a cold, wet day for the Royal event, yet the Cattle Club members kept their heads high. The team judged Lowline cattle, an unusually small breed of cattle, with the largest beasts weighing in at a mere 300kg.

Despite the difficulty, Josh Hullock and Marty Worboys were asked to speak about their judgements and Clay Armstrong came away with first place in the over 15years, age group.

The Cattle Club team thanks everyone for their support during the 2019 show season and look forward to the Ekka in term 3.

Equestrian

Georgia Rohde | Equestrian Captain

The Toowoomba Royal Show was the second last event to close out our first term of equestrian.  Despite being a wet weekend in the Toowoomba arena we had three riders competing in the SCOTS PGC colours. Our star of the weekend was Tom Keable who placed fifth on Friday and second and fourth on Saturday. We are all looking forward to Glennie Interschool event this weekend coming as well as some of our riders competing over the holidays in different events and disciplines.

In our first week back Sam Sargood will be representing the Queensland Junior Boys in the Interstate Barastoc Polocrosse competition at Adina World Cup Polocrosse event.  Best of luck to Sam – we will all be cheering for you!

Netball

Amelia Meek | Netball Captain

Our netball teams had great games this week in the town competition.  The SCOTS Open girls endured a nail-biting match against their old rivals, Strikers which ended in a very tight victory 30 to 29! It was an awesome game to watch which had spectators on the edge of their seats right up until the final hooter.  The SCOTS 2 team played the Mumbas and had a great game in both defence and attack with the final score 27 to 13 to SCOTS.

Well done to all of our members on a great term of netball.  Our next Inter-District Carnival will be on 28 April.  At this stage, numbers will be tight due to some conflicting priorities, however, we hope to be able to field teams where possible.
