From the Middle School CEA Coordinator (Issue 4 2018) Sport
Written on the 5 July 2018
At the halfway mark of the winter CEA season, I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of the Middle School students for their efforts and sportsmanship displayed so far. The season has been filled with strong results, skill development and team cohesion and a great pride in wearing the College uniform.
It has been an exciting week in College Soccer. 2 Middle School students were this week selected for the First XI Soccer team - the first time this has occurred in the College's history. Congratulations to Fergus Lynch and Oscar Gohl for their selections. However, this selection would not have been possible without the work of Sam Carmichael, the Middle School soccer skill development officer and SHC First XI coach. It has been fantastic to have him on board to assist student trainings and also spot talent to progress students to compete at an open level.
On Tuesday 26 June, our Year 9 Footballers competed in Round 1 of the State Knockout competition. In a 3-way round robin competition, SHC took on Cabra and Nazareth.
Our Year 6/7 and Year 8/9 Soccer teams have also progressed to the next rounds of the Knockout competition. The 8/9 boys defeated Brighton High 4-2, whilst the 6/7 students defeated SPW 3-0. Well done to these young men, the next rounds will take place early in Term 3.
Please enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday break with family and friends. We look forward to jumping back into a busy, but short Term 3 season, with the highlight being the annual intercollegiate weekend on 4 August.
