Both the girls and boys teams did Blayney High School proud at the Western Region Volleyball Championships in Bathurst.
The girls played well throughout the day, displaying great spirit and sportsmanship, winning their way through to the semi- final. Unfortunately they went down to Kelso High in a tough match. Great effort girls!
The boys were crowned Western Region Champions winning all of their games and beating Kelso High for the first time in 15 years! Congratulations boys and good luck at the State Schools Championships to be held Week 1 of Term 3.

This past Saturday Millthorpe 1 and Millthorpe 2 both played at Redmond Oval.
We were greeted with a beautiful winter's day ideal for football.
Our Millthorpe 1 team came up against Cowra in the first game. Millthorpe 1 started out of the blocks fast getting an early goal to Nathan Wells.
Millthorpe held on to take a 1-0 lead at half time. In the second half Millthorpe 1 played some nice flowing Football which lead to Adam Clarke finding space and cracking a long shot into the top corner to make it 2-0. The last of Millthorpe's goals came from a break down the left hand side by Tom Cooper who then played a fantastic square ball which was finished by Darcy Ryan. The result finished 3-0 to Millthorpe 1.
The second game of the afternoon was Millthorpe 2 vs Waratahs Old boys. Unfortunately for Millthorpe 2 Waratahs were red hot from the first whistle, running out comfortable 7-0 victors. Whilst Millthorpe did have a few chances just weren't quite able to apply the finishing touches.
This weekend both teams are away. Millthorpe 1 play at Jack Brabham at 3:15 whilst Millthorpe 2 are in Cowra at 1.15pm.
