Big margins were
the order of the day in
Riverland A/B grade
softball on the weekend.
Facing the strong Loxton A
side, Berri looked to have made
a good start when it had five
across the plate and was holding
Loxton A, with only two runs
and two down.
However, Berri struggled to
get the elusive third out and
Loxton ended up with a 10-run

KEKE CARVES UP COMPETITION: Local
driver Keke Falland raced at Speedway City
on Saturday night, finishing second in the QSS
410 CI SA Sprintcar Shootout Series. This is
his best result in this class since starting this
season. He will be stepping into another car,
the S79 Ruston Engineering Wingless, in the
next two weeks, racing at Murray Bridge this
weekend in the SA Wingless Titles – with a
field of 42 cars – and the following weekend,
February 20-21, at Speedway City for the
Australian Titles, where 60 cars are entered.
A grant will help Berri District Youth
Club to purchase a new horizontal bar for
the club’s gymnastics classes.
The club has been without a horizontal bar for sev-
eral years and head coach Jane McFarlane says gym-
nasts will learn new skills this year with advanced
gymnasts “preparing themselves for the more diffi-
cult skills such as giants and saulto dismounts”.
“These gymnasts will then be ready to perform
these skills into a foam pit which will be part of the
club’s new facility soon to be built at Glassey Park,
Berri,” she said.
“We want to keep advancing our gymnasts so they
are ready and experienced to train and compete on
all the new apparatus as soon as we move in.”
The club won the $400 grant thanks to the Cadbury
Community Grants scheme.
Wind not a deterrent
Windy conditions greeted the 20 Riverland
Cycling Club competitors who took part in
Monash criterium racing last week.
In A grade, half lap handicaps were imposed on
current club champion Colby Jachmann and Matt
Benson, leaving Angus Boase, Ken Ridley and
Shane Pitman as the hunted.
At about the 38-minute mark of the 40 minute
race Benson caught and rounded the rest of the field
on the hill before the bell lap. Pitman locked on
Benson’s wheel until the final bend, then rounded
the last corner in front.
The sprint to the line featured a top speed of
62km/h from Benson. Pitman got the upper hand
early, however Benson was having none of it and
stood up to take the victory, leaving Pitman in his
The largest group of the evening – a well matched
and quality field – contested B grade, with Lee
Stevens returning to his former glory by out-sprint-
