Dawn awarded 2016 Greenlow

LEONGATHA table tennis KeenAgers have presented this year’s prestigious Greenlow award to Dawn Rasmussen.
Dawn was judged by award founder, Alan Odgers, to be the most outstanding member of the group who has excelled in their field of skills during the 2015/2016 year.
The award was presented during the extended coffee break last Thursday morning. The Greenlow award began six years ago when Alan recognised that the special qualities displayed by Rob Green, the original recipient, should not go unrewarded.
A Grade finals start next week.
At the conclusion of the home and away matches top team Cheetahs are clear ladder leaders, with MTM in second place, and probably the only threat to the Cheetahs team.
DKM has come flying home to jump up to third and push MBN down to fourth, the two team still has to play each other in the first semi final anyway. Milko’s and Hopefuls can pack their bats away until February when it is expected hostilities will recommence.
In this week’s matches DKM defeated MBN 7-4, with a great match between Frank Hirst and John McCarthy, long rally’s, some pressure mistakes on both sides, a few rash whacks and a lot of banter between players and Frank snuck home 11-7 in the fifth game.
Cheetahs defeated Milko’s 7-4, with Kathy Campbell defeating Mike Bracecamp in the fifth game, 11-8. The match of the night was between Martin Stone and Kevin Dowling, with each player relying on an opponent’s mistake you could go and make a coffee, come back, and they are still playing the same point.
Martin was tossing the ball up to the rafters trying to force an error from Kevin, but he just kept blocking, blocking, blocking as usual. By the way, Martin won 11-9 in the fifth game.
The presentation night is on Tuesday, November 15 at 6.30pm at the Leongatha RSL.
Please let president Kevin know if you wish to attend.
