The lawn bowls teams limped to the finish line on Thursday as both teams failed to notch up a win. Spirits were high however and the students had a great week in Tamworth with many of them keen to come back for another year.
The netballers were stoked to grab their third win of the tournament to help them finish 11th out of 16 teams. The team was pulled together at the eleventh hour, so the result is not too bad considering this.
