In Golf, the first leg of the Tri-Club Trophy, played between Loxton, Blackwood and Millicent clubs was held at Blackwood on Sunday.
The hosts had an expected win, with an aggregate of their 10 best scores of 363. Loxton came third with 334 points, just 7 points behind Millicent.
Garry Mudge lead the way for Loxton with an impressive 39 points and Sue Pannell provided excellent support with her 36 points.
Loxton, who are the current holders of the trophy, trail Blackwood by 29 points, which is an improvement from last year when Loxton trailed by 38 points.
Loxton will hope to erase that margin when the club hosts the second leg on the June long weekend.
Next week the men pair up and contest the Aurich Zander Canadian Foursomes, an event that was established in 1969, while the women will compete in the first round of their Club Trophy.
