From the Sport Coordinators (Issue 1 2018 Sport)
Written on the 1 March 2018
Welcome to the first edition of the SHC Sports Newsletter.
In 2018, the focus of this Newsletter will be to celebrate College's sporting success and share key sports information. For the first time, this newsletter will encapsulate the sports news from all three Sacred Heart College Campuses, and the staff and students alike are excited for this opportunity to work together.
As coordinators, we have jumped at the opportunity to collaborate and compete under the one SHC banner and have done so in two events already this year; combined, we have achieved some fantastic results.
On Wednesday 21 February, our students combined their efforts to become back to back winners of the Sam White Trophy for the College with the most combined points, along with various individual and team medals at the SA School sport Triathlon Championships, held at West Lakes Canoe Club. Further to this, the SHC boys were the overall shield winners at the Relay Swimming Championships, held at the South AUstralian Aquatic Leisure Centre.
In the coming weeks, we look forward to competing in further cross campus events such as Surfing in Week 5, SACPSSA Swimming in Week 7, Catholic Girls Athletics in Week 8 and Co-Ed Athletics in Week 9. We wish these students all the best in these ventures.
In this issue, we look forward to introducing our senior College Sports Captains, Liam Wisdom and Alice Priestly. In the following edition we will introduce the Middle School and Marymount Sports Captains.
Also in this issue, we celebrate the success of the Marist Cricket Team, the commencement of the Netball trials, the promotion of two new fitness programs and as well, we acknowledge the individual achievements of our students.
Finally, a friendly reminder to families that all students are now to be wearing the new SHC sports uniforms relevant to the sport they are playing - click here for the requirements and prices.
Thank you to all College staff, students, coaches and old scholars who have assisted to ensure this season has started in such a smooth and successful fashion. Go Hearts!
