School sport under fire in NT SCHOOL Sports NT has been accused of reducing its commitment to a number of sports by handing over responsibility to peak bodies. SSNT met recently to plan its representative calendar for the next three years. A bigger commitment to females playing in less traditional sports and removing the opportunity for students aged between 13 and 19 years to represent the NT at sport were supposedly on the agenda. Two sports nominated for the axe were basketball and soccer in favour of the new format. It was also claimed that those with program voting rights were administrative types with no hands-on classroom experience. Another claim was no parent organisation was consulted about the changes in order to avoid uproar and to present it as a done deal. Not so, said SSNT president Peter Hirst. We continually review our program and always consult with the clusters, talk with volunteer parents and provide feedback forms, he added. One of our concerns is the burden on parents to fund their childrens sporting representation. Its an issue we share with peak bodies and we consult to ensure there are no conflicts and that we get the best out of representative opportunities. Hirst confirmed basketball and soccer will remain on the 2011 program, with soccer extended to include boys and the cricket program embracing 15-year-old boys. IAN BUTTERWORTH Hannahs in mood to land a blow for NT kickboxing MARTIAL ARTS By GREY MORRIS Hannah Reed TERRITORIAN Hannah Reed will fight for a Queensland kickboxing title in Brisbane tonight. The former Casuarina Secondary College student will fight local Kimberley Law for the 54.5kg crown at Brisbanes Acacia Ridge Hotel. Reed learnt the art of kickboxing at Darwins Man Ho club as a teenager and has progressed through the ranks to be on the verge of a state title. Coached by world champion Bruce The Preacher McPhee in the sunshine state, Reed has already established a reputation as a hard hitter. Its all about punching and kicking and Ive devel oped my left hand to the stage where its hurting my opponents, she said. Kickboxing has taught me a lot, including discipline and focus and its a sport I love. Hopefully I can win a state title and start focusing on a national championship, its something I want to do. Just as important for Reed is the support of her mum Hillary, who is flying to Brisbane to watch the big fight. Having mum there makes it even more special, I hope I can win for her, Hannah said. Formula One world championship contender, Australias Mark Webber checks all is right in the cockpit of his Red Bull car ahead of this weekends Brazilian Grand Prix Picture: GETTY IMAGES Its crunch time at Interlagos BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIX FORMULA One title hopeful Mark Webber says this weekends race in Brazil is crunch time for the 2010 world championship. Webber goes into the penultimate race of the season at the Interlagos circuit 11 points behind championship leader Fernando Alonso after crashing out in the last grand prix in Korea. With the season finale to be raced in Abu Dhabi next weekend, the Australian believes nothing can match the intensity he and the other championship contenders will face over the next week and a half. Its crunch time: we have two races in the space of eight days, at the end of which well know the identity of the 2010 world champion, Webber said. It doesnt get bigger than this and I feel 110 per cent ready for the fight. The Red Bull driver, the 2009 winner in Brazil, says while his crash in Korea and subsequent relinquishing of the championship lead to Alonso isnt ideal hes not out of the title running. Fernando Alonso leads the championship by 11 points, but there are 50 still on the table so theres everything to play for, Webber said. Im not going to change my approach. Im going to do my best. Some have suggested Alonsos title challenge has been tarnished by the Ferrari drivers win in Germany earlier this year where he appeared to benefit from a team order to let him past teammate Felipe Massa. But 34-year-old Webber says if the Spaniard wins the title, hell hold no grudges. n The Brazilian grand prix gets underway at 1.30am on Monday (NT time).
