Huge campaign for young Shark

By TANIA PHILLIPS

SHARKS junior player Cohen Lockhart has led NSW to victory in the Australian Primary School Sports Association's titles in Brisbane.

The young Tweed player was in good form as NSW went through to dominate the titles losing just one game out of the six they played.

Lockhart, from Tweed Heads primary school, returned in time to play for Sharks in the junior games of the Tweed District softball.

A full round of Tweed softball was held on Saturday at Piggabeen Oval, West Tweed. Koalas were in dominant form in the men's competition winning both legs of their double-header.

Led by some big batting from Brisbane import Nathan Ralf, Koalas defeated Pottsville 9-5 in their opening game. Peter Brims and Brendan Gray also batted well while Hugh Green was best for Pottsville. In their second game, Koalas won 12-2 out-playing a young Sharks outfit which included just four of their regular players with the rest being drawn from Sharks under 17s.

Meanwhile Koalas defeated Bandits in a tense encounter in the women's competition 19-15. In other women's games Arkedas beat Pottsville 11-8 and Cherokees beat Warriors 7-0. In the mixed, Koalas beat Sharks 7-0.
