Sports Report


The first event on the 2015 Salesian sports calendar was the SACCSS Golf.  Salesian fielded a junior team of five golfers, all eager to represent the College and improve their golf over nine holes at Melbourne Airport Golf Club.  The five golfers, Colin Quantrill, Jordan Harper, Sean Dillon, Sean Perry and David Tyquin all played great golf throughout the day and were the overall team champions.  Colin played exceptionally well and was second overall in the individual competition.  Congratulations to all the golfers and thankyou to Mr. Simon Kardash for assisting on the day.
