A record entry by RAGA boys in the Men’s 2013 Club Championships

A record entry by RAGA boys in the Men’s 2013 Club Championships

The four-round major club tournament, the Clovelly Men’s Club Champs took place over two weekends in late March and early April. All nine of the eligible RAGA boys entered. Well done to all of the participants and particularly to Shane DeKock who was in contention going into the final round. Unfortunately Shane did not quite manage a top three place overall, but did secure second place in the junior division.

In his victory speech, this year’s Club Champs winner (and Premier League Captain) Antonio Bruni spoke of his joy to see how many RAGA juniors were competing and how he hoped to see them in his premier league team in the near future. His words really buoyed our students up; they are looking forward to next year’s Champs already, and are determined to better their scores. Ultimately they would love to be part of the Premier League

In total we had fourteen RAGA students entering the Ladies & Me n’s Club Champs this year; this bodes well for Clovelly going forward. Whilst RAGA is all about ensuring deserving students have e very opportunity to meet their potential, it’s nice to think we are helping support Clovelly Country Club going forward.

Great start to schools golf league at RAGA

This year’s Schools Golf League sees eleven teams competing in the South league. After the first six matches played, the RAGA team is currently in second place on 10 points having played 6 (won 5 & lost one). With SACS topping the table currently, the RAGA versus SACS match to be played after the June school holidays may just prove to be the season decider. But for now our motto is “one game at a time”; let’s just enjoy the challenge and make new friends along the way.
