North Albany Clontarf Academy

The North Albany Clontarf Academy held their annual, Great Southern Fishing Challenge and Beach Cricket Carnival on the 9th and 10th of December. For these two events, we had five visiting academies from Northam, Mandurah, Bunbury, Narrogin and Katanning with approximately 60 members in total.

The first event was the fishing challenge. The way the challenge worked was the fish were classed into a point system and the winning team was calculated by quality and quantity. Although not a lot of fish were caught on the day, due to weather conditions, there was still plenty of fun had. The challenge was won by Northam on a countback decision over North Albany.

Beach cricket was up the next morning, unfortunately, due to extreme weather at Middleton Beach, the carnival was relocated to North Albany Senior High School Oval. The event was played in good spirits with three games happening all at once. Cricket Australia was involved on the day supplying roll out cricket pitches, the Perth Scorchers van playing music and support from two cricket development officers. The clear winner on the day was Newton Moore Academy from Bunbury.
