The last two weeks of Term saw our Year 9 AFL, Netball and Boys Volleyball teams play in their Premier League Grand Finals. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get over the line in any of the Grand Finals, but we’re proud to say that no other College had more than three teams in Grand Finals. Congratulations to all students who represented the College throughout the Year 9 Premier League season.
Our Junior and Intermediate Tennis teams competed across full day events at Hume Tennis Centre. Our Junior team finished 3rd in the aggregate, whilst our Intermediate team beat 12 other Colleges to win the SACCSS Tennis Aggregate. Congratulations to all students who represented the College with great pride over the two days.
The final day of Term saw the entire College take part in the House Cross Country Carnival in beautiful conditions. We had 330 runners compete for their Houses in the 3.25km running event, while all other students enjoyed the conditions, walking the shorter 2km course. Congratulations to Mitchell Bruce of O’Grady house who won the race in a new record time of 11:22.9 and Ben Zarb (Colliton) and Ned Crotty (MacKillop) who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. The final tally of points was tight, but we’ll reveal the final House Cross Country results along with the final Fr. Papworth Cup results at our whole school assembly on Friday 18 October.
