Year 8 Badminton

On Tuesday 12th June 2 girls and 2 boys teams headed to Kilsyth stadium for Badminton.

 

For many it was their first time playing competitively. All teams performed admirably with every player showing improvement over the day. Both girls and boys teams came second in their respective pools with the A girls missing out on the final game to a strong Norwood team.

 

As always I was proud to take out students who represented our school with great sportspersonship on display.

(Teacher in Charge)

On the 4th June, nine Year 12 students ventured out to Dandenong Basketball Stadium to play in their final Zone Basketball Tournament for their Secondary School career.

 

Dallas scored the girls to victory, as they finished the day undefeated. Sarah was instrumental in her commentary, never knowing how far through the game we were; Felicity continued to stick up for the team against the refs even when we were 40 points up; Caitlin, our smallest player, smashed the rebounds; Jacinta couldn't warm up despite the time she spent on the court; Emma was our leading goal scorer; Georgia J was instrumental despite her reluctance to take off her jacket and get on the court; Georgia, our leading tall, took to the court with grace and decorum; and Bella continued to challenge herself as she made every one of her left handed layups (she is a righty).

 

The team will go through to Regional in Term 3.

2018 Region Cross Country

 

Well done to all our students that competed at the Region Cross Country on Tuesday the 19th of June. The conditions were tough. It was freezing on the day and the heavy mist made it difficult to see the runners as they progressed around the course.  Our students put in an amazing performance and we achieved some excellent results.

 

Thank you to all our students and their parents, it’s always a big effort to come out on a pupil free day, but we certainly appreciate it and all students should be really proud of their efforts on the day.
