Booming success for Narooma High School boccia players

Six Narooma High School students have blasted their rivals to claim the South Coast boccia title.

They then backed up to come second in NSW at the state titles.

The students recently competed in the NSW Public Schools Special Education Boccia Knockout competition for the South Coast region.

The students travelled to Vincentia and won all of their games, to take the regional competition.

“This gave them the opportunity to progress onto the Grand Final at Homebush Olympic Park and represent Narooma High School at a State level,” school spokeswoman Kylie Thomas said.

“Boccia is a Paralympic sport that is designed so that people of all abilities can play on an equal field.

“The Narooma High School team came 2nd in the state out of 80 schools.

“This is an amazing result and the best result Narooma High School has achieved in this competition.

The team had the opportunity to play against some of the Australian junior representative players.

They also got to make new friends and learn to negotiate public transport in Sydney during peak hour.

This was such a great experience for these students, for some it was their first time representing their school.

Congratulations to Effie Musumeci, Connor McCarthy, Les Campbell, Hunter MacKenzie, Rebecca Merlino and Lochie Neilson who were great ambassadors for Narooma High School.

“We are very proud of you all.”
