Welcome to the 2019 school year! We have literally hit the ground running with our Senior Cricket and Netball teams playing against MacKillop College last Friday. Our girls battled hard against an impressive MacKillop team, going down by 9 goals in the netball, whilst our boys had an impressive 40 run win at cricket.
Our two Sports Captains for 2019 will be Kirby Elliott and Chelsea Humphries. Both girls have impressive sporting backgrounds and I know they will be both great role models and leaders for their peers, both on and off the sports fields in 2019.
This Thursday will see our Year 10 Premier League teams start their six weeks seasons. 2019 will see the introduction of boys netball into Premier League, which will be a new sport for many of the boys. Best of luck to all!
The College Swimming Carnival will take place this Friday at the Sunbury Aquatic Centre. We’re looking forward to once again seeing staff and students getting into the spirit of the day and representing their Houses in a variety of activities, whether that be swimming, playing water volleyball, competing in the ‘Staff/Student Biggest Bomb Competition’ or contributing to the ‘Inflatable Event’, which provided plenty of laughs. Remember that the day isn’t necessarily about winning, it’s about giving your personal best for your House. Is there a House that will manage to knock O’Grady House off after winning the last two swimming carnivals?
Congratulations must also go to Maxine DiBlasi (Year 8), who was recently selected to represent Australia at the Under 14 Girls Futsal Championships in the UK in October. We wish Maxine all the best and look forward to her representing the college in both soccer and futsal this year.
We’re looking forward to a big year of sport in 2019!
