Written on the 29 June 2017
The College Winter sports are in full swing as we approach the halfway mark for the season. Each week our students are placing their talents on the field, pitch and court in representation of their team and College in their pursuit of excellence as they near their final play offs in August.
Since our last CEA Newsletter, our Marist Netball side have made a successful trip to Red Bend College, Forbes in NSW to bring home the title of Marist Netball Champions for 2017! This is the fourth time the girls have achieved this title in the competition's 23 year history.
In the State-Wide Knockout competitions we have recently had our Girls' Football, Girls' Soccer, Boys' Year 10 Soccer, Open A and 10A Netball teams compete. Our Girls' Football side have progressed through to the second round where they play Trinity College and Mercedes College in the Semi Finals, and our Open A Netball team progress to face Golden Grove.
Our 10A Boys Knockout team had a great day out in Round 1, defeating Cardijn College and Unley High School to progress through to Round 2. In the history of this event the College has not taken out a Premiership, but the boys are motivated to create history. Watch this space.
The Girls' Hockey program is on the improve, with the First XI Hockey team being promoted to A grade off the back of last year's stellar performance. Whilst the Boys' Basketball program introduces two new coaches who are motivated to make a different and who are having a positive impact on the boys.
Our Middle School boys have continued their success in the various CEA programs with some fantastic results. Our Debating teams, the first in four years, have performed with great success, with two of our three teams remaining undefeated! We have also now progressed through to the next rounds in the 6/7 and 8/9 Knockout Football competitions, whilst our 6/7 Basketballers are starting to prepare for their SAPSASA Knockout competition, which is to take place early next term. Well done to all involved at the Middle School!
Our annual boys Intercol against Rostrevor College is fast approaching, and we encourage all families to put 4-5 August in the diary as the key dates. Sacred Heart College are hosting the event this year. More information regarding the annual Intercol will be communicated to players through their coaches.
As always, we thank all the parents/carers, students and staff who give their time to support the sports program at Sacred Heart College. Enjoy the holidays and well deserved break!
