Loxton bowlers return to form
Berri jumped into the top
four for the first time since
round six with a 25-shot win
over third-placed Loxton in
Bowls Riverland division one
Berri has now won two games in a
row and faces the bottom two teams
in the next two weeks, which will
prove pivotal to its finals chances.
Andrew Hill had a 27-12 win over
Des Schliebs for Berri, while Daryn
Piltz defeated Vic Pavia by eight and
Dennis Treloar beat Neil Thiele.
Brian Bullock was Loxton’s only
Waikerie has assumed the man-
tle of top Bowls Riverland
division one Saturday pennant team
following its eight-shot win over
Renmark on the weekend.
Renmark formerly held top spot,
but its loss at home on Saturday saw
Waikerie move clear by six points
on the table.
Andrew Fulwood and Brian
Burnett led the way for Waikerie.
Burnett easily accounted for Chris
Karantonis by 12 shots, while
Fulwood beat Bill Dopson by six.
Sean Leesue worked hard to keep
Renmark in the match with a sev-
en-shot triumph over Roger Davies,
while Rick Stoeckel beat John Segneri
by three, but it was not enough.
Loxton RSL had its first win since
round seven, beating Renmark
RSL by 11 shots.
The loss to Renmark RSL put a
huge dent in its finals hopes, while
a win would have likely seen it in
the top four.
Jade Wright recorded a big 13-shot
win over John van der Wyst, while
Lew Westbrook won by four against
Mal Inglis and Ron Adam were
both triumphant for Renmark RSL.

Bowls Riverland has officially changed its
excessive heat policy with immediate effect.
As reported in The Loxton News (23/12/15), Bowls
Riverland was investigating changing its policy fol-
lowing inconsistency in a round of matches late in
2015. Under the old rules, matches would be played
up until the temperature reached 40C, measured by
calibrated thermometers at each venue.
However, with a game at Loxton called off and
neighbouring Loxton RSL playing on during a day
where the temperature eventually reached 43C, Bowls
Riverland officials elected to create a more consistent
All Saturday pennant and midweek triples matches
will now be cancelled if the forecast temperature is
43C or above.
If the forecast temperature is 42C or less, then the
old rules will continue to apply.
However, no change will be made to Wednesday
pennants, which cease play when the temperature

About 400 swimmers made a splash at the
Loxton Swimming Pool for the 2016 South
Australian Country Championships on the
The event began on Friday afternoon with the
Superfish competition for young competitors, while
the championship events got under way on Saturday
and continued through to Monday.
Loxton Swimming Club president Tracey Reichelt
hailed the four-day event a success.
“From our point of view, everything ran pretty
smoothly,” she said.
Reichelt credited the upgraded facilities, sponsors and
community support for the success of the champion-
Swimming SA general manager Michelle Doyle
said while the weather over the four days was warm,
event organisers were able to adapt.
“We have extreme weather policies for that par-
ticular reason, so we had some modifications to the
program early on,” she said.
“Spectator numbers have been good though.”
Throughout the championships, a number of state
qualifying times were achieved, while at least nine
records were broken.
Doyle said Loxton accommodation providers in
both Loxton, and the wider Riverland area, were
booked out in advance.
“We have done a bit of a survey and we think there
are three to four extra people (visiting town) per com-
petitor,” she said.
“My understanding is that Loxton is full, Renmark
has been overtaken by swimmers, as has Barmera,
Kingston-on-Murray and Berri.”
The Superfish event on Friday night was well-received.
“We had 110 of them take part and they were very
cute,” Doyle said.
“Hopefully next year they will swim at the actual
Loxton swimmers Hannah Kroemer and Joe and
Renzo Catalano made the finals in their age categories
at the event.
Kroemer won silver in the women’s 18 and over
