The Sport calendar has been very busy over the past fortnight, see below for a few highlights.
On Tuesday 4 September, 101 students represented the College at the SACCSS Athletics Carnival at Albert Park. We finished second in the aggregate for both the Junior and Intermediate divisions which was a fantastic effort.
Two weeks ago, our Senior Boys AFL team kicked off their Herald Sun Shield campaign with an impressive win over Padua College in the Semi Final, putting us through to the Grand Final against Westbourne Grammar last week. The Grand Final was a tightly contested match but unfortunately we were on the wrong side of the scoreboard when the siren went, losing by two points. Congratulations to all of the boys, it was a magnificent effort to make it as far as we did.
Our Gymnastics team, made up of six girls, recently competed across both the A1 and B2 divisions at the Interschool Gymnastics Carnival in Altona. All the girls performed very well on the day, with our A1 team finishing second overall and Matilda Gavaghan winning the A1 individual event against some quality gymnasts. See the Gymnastics Schoolbox page for photos and a video of Tilly’s floor routine.
Thursday 6 September saw the Year 8 Premier League season kick off against Kolbe College, and last Tuesday, our Year 9 Boys AFL team played off in the Grand Final against Penola College, but unfortunately went down by a few goals on the day.
Congratulations to all of our eight teams across cricket, netball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball that won their matches.
To round out a very busy fortnight in Sport, last Wednesday and Thursday, our Junior and Intermediate tennis teams competed in the SACCSS Tennis Carnival at Hume Tennis Centre. The days provided both magnificent weather and results, with our Junior team winning the Aggregate Pennant and our Intermediate team finishing second by two points.
