Senior Swimming Carnival

In marked contrast to last year's washout the Senior School Swimming Carnival was held yesterday in sparkling summer weather.  School spirit was to the fore with participation levels at a record high.  In a tight battle, with the score see-sawing throughout, Barron House piled on the pressure in the relay events and were crowned 2018 Senior Swimming Carnival Champions.

Final Scores:  Barron 935, Purton 916, Rice 850 and Treacy 828.

 

Basketball

Venue changes:  D teams will be playing their games against Oakhill Gold teams at Oxford Falls this Saturday. This was meant to be an away game; however, Oakhill has too many games to run at their courts.  B teams will be playing Redfield teams at Hills Basketball Stadium this Saturday.

 

I was very impressed with the spirit and mental toughness our boys showed during the games I saw on the weekend. All the A teams played tough, hard matches against St Augustine’s teams and the boys kept their composure after heavy collisions, along with displaying good sportsmanship.  Other games, regardless of the score, the boys were obviously enjoying playing the game with their friends. Something I think we miss, at times, at the schoolboy level.

 

Plays of the day: Jack Thiessen slots a 3 pointer to win it on the buzzer for the 13Cs.  Toby Stockeld (17Ds) fast break at full speed, lays it up, to be cheered by both teams.

Game of the day: 13Fs win an absolute epic by one point against St Patrick’s 13D team. Well done to new coach Mr Wall.

Deserves a mention: Michael Fakhoury, Tom Findlay – 1sts;  Adrian Joson, Kelani Lenehan – 17As;

Joel Ghannoum, Jack Garrett – 15As;   Max Harmata – 14As;   Sam Holm, Stefan Senicic – 13As;  

Charlie Hamill, Will Stanley – 14Es;  Issac Nistico, Issac Jee, Lachie Griffith – 13Es;  Conor Lo – 14Cs.  Frank Houlihan - 13Fs.

ISA Round 7 - 1st XI v Chevalier College at Oxford Falls  

 

Following a successful Tour and first half of the 2017/18 Season the 1st XI took on Chevalier College. Jordan Furlan (1st XI Player #639) received his 1st XI cap from Mr Couani before play started and the team found themselves in the field. A disciplined bowling effort which was well supported in the field with sharp catching resulted in the opposition being bowled out for 44.

 

The wickets were shared between Louis Mosmann (2-4 off 6 overs), Mackenzie Carrall (2-9 off 8 overs), James Brown (2-9) Dan Hall (1-6) and Liahm Williams (3-2) who cleaned up the tail to take three wicket in seven balls along with three catches.

Captain, James Brown, and vice-captain, Tom Colgan steered the team to a nine wicket win in just 17 overs with some clever placement and aggressive running between the wickets. This was a strong performance leading into two challenging matches against Oakhill and St Stanislaus’ Colleges.

 

                                                                                                                   Mr P Rodgers and Mr D Reay

NSTA Tennis

Welcome back all students and parents to NSTA . A quick note to let you know that there has been a change in the start date for NSTA and the boys will now begin games on Saturday 17th February.  Prior to this date please check that all uniforms still fit.  If necessary uniforms can be purchased next week at the Uniform Shop.  (See the Canteen & Uniform Shop page of this newsletter for details.)  The teams and divisions will be placed on the noticeboard this Thursday morning, 8th February.

 

After consultation with Mr Stearn, Senior School Sportsmaster, a decision has also been made that the Senior boys will be put on a roster to umpire the lower divisions. The boys would only need to do this once during the term. When your son is rostered on he will need to be at Talus Street by 7:45am, ready to start. I will ensure that the boys who are umpiring will also be playing at Talus St on their rostered week.
