36ers blitz Trinity students
THE best junior basketballers from
Trinity College's north and south cam-
puses had a game to remember yester-
day, taking on the Adelaide 36ers in a
fun exhibition at STARplex.
The 'So you think you can play?' chal-
lenge is a 36ers initiative that takes the side
to primary schools around South Australia
and has it face off against a team of stu-
dents in a 'real' 20-minute match.
It not only provides a chance for students
to meet the state's best basketballers, but
also helps the 36ers develop relationships
with local communities and promote bas-
ketball outside of
sport director Rupert
Sapwell, a former
36er, said basketball
is growing rapidly in
areas, and that the
club has recognised
the need to support
"The north is a
basketball hot bed at the moment, and
there's a huge amount of interest, not only
in the 36ers...the Central Districts Basket-
ball Club based at STARplex is just grow-
ing like a virus, and everyone's catching it,"
Mr Sapwell said.
this area is going
great and the Ad-
elaide 36ers know
that, in order to
spread their brand,
it's very wise, al-
to come out here
The event was a
and-a-half full of
fun for players and spectators.
Fifteen students from years five to seven
formed Trinity's team, and played in front
of the entire north and south schools,
which packed into STARplex to voice their
Many students made banners, with the
maker of the best banner receiving some
merchandise for their efforts.
Students were also introduced to the
players, and mascot Murray Magpie, and
each received a free ticket to a 36ers home
It is the second consecutive year that
Trinity College has hosted the event, much
to the delight of the kids.
"Everyone was buzzing after they came
last time and raving about it, and as soon
as the word got around campus this time,
I was flooded with requests to play against
them," Mr Sapwell said.
"When they visit out here they know
they're going to get a good show...we know
we don't get it every year, but we're making
hay while the sun shines."
GAWLER Bowling Club's metro
one north side was the only team
to taste victory on Saturday, beat-
ing Munno Para by 15 shots, in
another challenging round of
Alf Lipsys and Ross Kirby skip-
pered their rinks to strong 10 and 11-
shot wins, respectively, which proved
to be the difference.
The premier league side's winless
season continued, with the side fail-
ing to match it with Lockleys and go-
ing down by 40 shots.
Shane Bevin's rink of Darren
Hunter, Alf Skuse and Ian Din-
ham was the only shining light for
Gawler, winning its contest by nine
Walkerville was too strong for
Gawler's metro two north team, de-
feating it by 13 shots.
Trevor Wilson's rink scored an im-
pressive 20-shot victory, but it was
not enough to get Gawler over the
The metro four side was also un-
able to get the points, losing to Pen-
field Red by a narrow six shots.
The mid-week competition proved
to be a tough challenge for Gawler,
with only its major league north
side notching a win by defeating
Hope Valley by 20 shots on Wednes-
The club failed to score wins in the
remaining four matches played across
Wednesday and Thursday.

No stopping Barossa bowls
TWO of the three division

sociation on Saturday, with the
clash between an undefeated
Nuriootpa and winless Kapun-
da the only match cancelled
due to rain.
Angaston retained second spot
on the ladder after defeating Freel-
ing by 42 shots.
Playing on its home deck, An-
gaston was the victor in three of
its four rinks for the afternoon,
highlighted by Brian Bowden's big
21-shot win over Freeling's Trevor
In the remaining match, Eu-
dunda just held on to defeat Ta-
nunda by a narrow eight shots.
Greg Prior's 11-shot win over
Tanunda's Bradley Pech proved
crucial in the result, particularly
after Peter Baverstock gave Ta-
nunda the upper hand following
a commanding 12-shot win over
The remaining rinks were both
hotly contested, with Eudunda's
David Kleinig's two-shot victory
over Tim Liersch the closest re-
Rainy conditions impacted play
in division two, with only two
matches getting started.
Kapunda scored its second win
for the season by upsetting Eu-
dunda by 14 shots, on the back
of a solid nine-shot win by Jack
Tanunda also scored an upset
win, downing Lyndoch by 10
shots, with Darryl Grear's 13-shot
victory pivotal in the outcome.
Basketball in this area
is going great and the Adelaide
36ers know that, in order to
spread their brand, it's very wise,
almost compulsory, to come out
