Auckland Secondary Schools Boys Singles Championship
01 Jul 2016
Monday saw boys from Kelston Boys High School, St Peters College, Massey High School and Auckland Boys Grammar meet at Remuera Bowling Club to battle it out for the Auckland Secondary Schools Singles title.
The weather was less than ideal, but the boys braved the conditions to finish, with Zaylin Ross from Massey High school taking the top honours.
Ross was strong from the get-go with straight wins throughout the competition; post section against J. Duymel, Auckland Grammar in the first round and B Batistich, Auckland Grammar in the Semi, saw closer games, but it was one-way-traffic for Ross in the final with Auckland Grammar's S. Nimsoongnern. Ross was very strong and Nimsoongnern didn't manage to get on the board until he got a one at the 10th end, but there was no coming back and Ross took the match 16-1.
Well done to all and special thanks to Esther Eu, Helen Murray and Ellen Dean for giving up their time to make this event work. Thanks also to Remuera Bowling Club for hosting and to the teachers and students for coping in difficult conditions!
