CANOBOLAS Rural Technology High School had the ideal start to their CKC Cup campaign yesterday.
The Orange school hosted Cowra High across 20 sporting matches and four debates.
Canobolas came out on top by 45 competition points to 43.
Canobolas RTHS teacher Amanda Rouse said the result was exciting for everyone involved.
“They’ve done so well. That’s the best school spirit I’ve seen,” Rouse said.
This is the third year the CKC Cup, an inter-school competition between Canobolas, Cowra and Kelso High, has been held.
However, this is the first time the same events will be held at each round.
This year the sports include netball, touch football, T-Ball, softball, basketball, hockey, volleyball and football.
There are also debates.
Each sport is also divided into games for Years 7 and 8 sides, and Years 9 and 10 teams.
The tightest result of the day was a nil-all draw in the Years 9 and 10 girls’ football.
The biggest win for Canobolas yesterday was their 50-11 victory in the Years 9 and 10 boys’ basketball.
“We had a great day. The kids are very confident for the next round,” Rouse said.
“It’s good it was close because it’s obvious the event is worthwhile.”
In the next round, Cowra will host Kelso High next Tuesday.
Kelso will host Canobolas in the final round on Friday, August 31.
