White Makes State Grade 7/8/9 Team
Posted on: 8 May
The Northern Rivers Region was represented by 9 players in the recent 2019 Year 7/8/9 Newton Shield at Forster Golf Club.
Harry White (St. John’s College Lismore) was the standout by winning the overall Nett Division and consequently being selected in the NSW Under 15s Schools Team to contest the Australian Under 15s championships in December 2019. This event also includes a visit to the Australian Open Championships which should be great fun.
Other great performances came from Billy Muldoon (Banora Point High School) winning the Grade 8 Nett Division and Oliver Payne (Emmanuel Anglican College, Ballina) finishing 2nd in the Grade 9 Nett Division. Hollie Fuller (South Grafton High) was also successful in winning the Girls Grade 8 Net Division.
Other participants from the Northern Rivers included Ben Adams (Tweed River High School) and Sam Adams (Tweed River High School) – both finishing with the same gross score!! Kane Whitelock (Byron Bay High School), Zane Lowe and Brayden Howlett (Kyogle High School).
