Written on the 5 July 2018


This year we have 14 teams competing in the SACSSGSA Competition - 4x Year 10 teams and 10x Year 11/12 teams, who play in various locations around Adelaide. Our A1 and A2 teams have moved indoors for the first time this year with games held at St Michael's, St Aloysius and SHC in the Br McAteer Centre. This is a great step forward in the competition resulting in games of greater intensity and a much better standard of play.

The A1 team currently sit in 3rd position on the Premiership table with some work to do before the end of the season. The A2 team are currently in 2nd position and are definitely in contention to take out the Premiership once again.

We have two B1 teams both playing at Sacred Heart. Sitting 3rd and 4th with both teams of equal standard it will be interesting to see who will rise above. Our B2 teams who play out at Mercedes have had some great games and are currently 3rd and 4th on the Premiership table. This year we have four C1 teams, 2 teams play at Mercedes and 2 play at SHC. In both competitions, the teams currently sit 3rd and 6th.

In the Year 10 competition, we have a 10A1, 10A2 and two 10B1 teams all playing at Cabra College. Our 10A1 and 10A2's play in the same competition, so it is a real challenge for our 2's but they are competing and certainly deserve their spot. Currently the 10A1 are top of the ladder with the 10A2 in 5th. The 10B1 teams also play at Cabra and are sitting 3rd and 7th.

Good luck for the rest of the season everyone.

Knockout Netball

Open A Grade
On Wednesday 5 June, the Open A grade team headed up to Heathfield for 2 matches in the Statewide Netball Knockout Competition. Our first match was against Cornerstone College and the girls played brilliantly. Excellent mid-court defense resulted in many interceptions from our circle defence and our goalies had no trouble converting from those turnovers. Strong leadership from the team's Captain, Courtney Summers, shot well from all areas of the circle, which saw us defeat Cornerstone 53 - 20. The second game was against Heathfield High who had a physical game plan which proved challenging in the first quarter. Settling words from experienced coach Alex Penhall, steadied the team, enabling them to take control of the game and dictate the play from that point on, which ended with us defeating Heathfield 39 - 18.

The team now plays another double header at home in the Br McAteer Centre against Scotch and Cabra Colleges on Thursday 2 August. Matches start at 9.00am. We wish them luck.

Year 10A
This year our talented Year 10 team came up against the very strong St Mary's and Unley High in their first round of the Year 10 Statewide Knockout Competition. St Mary's are the reigning champions and were again a force to be reckoned with, coached by Old Scholar Amanda Shattock. Despite this, the girls put up an excellent fight only fading in the last quarter to be defeated by St Mary's 50 - 39.  Early in the game, our defenders were excellent - turning over the ball several times which we then capitalised on, but with St Mary's only missing 3 goals for the whole game, we couldn't keep up with this talented team. Sacred Heart then played Unley High and defeated them with ease. Despite knowing that the team was out of the Knockout Competition, we played with vigor and enthusiasm defeating Unley 53 - 14. Great effort girls!
