Wildcats on the bench
by Stephanie Gropler
Loxton baseballers face
another season on the bench
after attempts to revive the
Wildcats Club failed.
The baseball club will remain
in recess for the 2014-15 season,
with only two people attending
the recent AGM.
Last year, the club was unable
to put forward a senior team and
fill committee roles.
However, the club was eventu-
ally able to get enough people
together to form an under 16
team and a committee for about
half the season.
Secretary/treasurer Dot Voigt
said the turnout for the AGM
was "disappointing to say the
"I don't know what will hap-
pen from here. We tried our best
last year," she said.
"I don't know how or when
it will get going again because
there are no senior players
around that want to play."
The Loxton Wildcats Baseball
under 16 side finished the sea-
son early, after losing players
after the Christmas break.
Mrs Voigt said despite being
unable to fill a senior team for
the past two years, there was
hope for the club.
"I think Riverland Baseball
League were looking at doing
some promotions through the
schools," she said.
"That is where you have to
start again now -- through the
juniors and build up the club
"If you don't have juniors, you
are not going to fill your senior
teams as the years go by."
However, Mrs Voigt said it
wasn't just players that were
"You need the support from
parents like any sport and any
club," she said.
"It always falls back on help-
ers and volunteers. If you haven't
got that, it is pretty difficult."
Top week for Giles
Andrew Giles had a week to remember,
winning both the Saturday and mid-week
stableford titles at the Loxton Golf Club.
Giles had an outstanding 38 points in Saturday
in an event where players struggled despite the
His 38 was three clear of Dean Peberdy, with
placegetters going as low as 31 points for the men
and 29 for the women.
Giles scored 40 points just two weeks ago and
his handicap continues to rapidly drop.
He also dominated the midweek event, when his
36 again saw him a comfortable winner by two
points. This time it was Frank Borg who finished
second. Borg has also found form recently and has
figured in the winning list on numerous occasions
Kath Nolan was an easy winner in the women's
event. Her 38 points was nine clear of her nearest
Next weekend sees Loxton players travelling
to Blackwood to compete in the final leg of the
Loxton-Blackwood-Millicent Tri-club Challenge.
Loxton holds a narrow two-point lead over
Millicent and a five point lead over Blackwood.
With Blackwood having the home advantage,
Loxton players will be under pressure to perform
to their very best if Loxton is to ward off the
