Dear members of the Sacred Heart College Community
The Winter season for the majority of our sports at SHC have come to an end. Our athletes, across various sports, have been doing an outstanding job representing Sacred Heart College with numerous teams achieving fabulous results inclusive of a number of Premierships.
The First XI Soccer have had a tremendous season taking out the Twilight Soccer League final for the first time in history defeating Blackfriars, while our Open B1 and Open C1 Netball teams took home the premiership.
SHC recently competed against Rostrevor College for the 95th Intercol Exchange. There were many tough fought out games over the two days and we thank all the coaches who assisted in making the day a success.
The College also recently hosted the 62nd SHC-ACK exchange in August with a brilliant weekend of Sport and the Arts shared between the two College's. The huge community spirit displayed by all families in hosting the ACK students was greatly appreciated.
In the State-Wide Knock-out competitions, the Year 10 boys basketball and soccer teams have progressed through to the next round. The Year 10 girls basketball commence their Knock-out journey with an upcoming Round 1 clash in Week 10. Both the boys and girls Year 10 basketball sides have seen the selection of four Year 9 students in each team. Our Open A Netball side finished 4th in the State Knock-out Finals as one of the successful 6 schools across the state, while our Open Girls Football were knocked out in the semi finals by Tatachillla who went on to win the State title for 2018.
At Marymount Campus both the Year 6/7 and Year 8/9 Knock-out Football teams were narrowly defeated in the final rounds, as well as the Year 6/7 Netball team losing to Scotch College in a competitive semi-final. The Year 8/9 boys Football were the success story of the College taking out the State Title for 2018 over Henley High School. The Year 6/7 boys Football have progressed through to the preliminary final in Week 10 against Eastern Fleurieu and we look forward to reporting on the success in the next CEA.
Aside from the State Knock-out and weekly competitions, Sacred Heart College recently entered three teams in the All Schools Mixed Touch Carnival. As a mixed event, our male and female athletes from the Senior and Marymount Campus combined their skills to come away with some impressive results with our Open and U15 sides both taking home 3rd place. Next week over 100 Year 6/7's will head to the parklands for the Catholic Primary Schools Touch Carnival.
The Primary aged students have been kept busy with the SACPSSA Cross Country Carnival, SAPSASA Athletics Carnival and the second Independent School Swimming meet at Immanuel. The senior boys will represent SHC in the upcoming Achilles Cup in Week 10.
We would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to all of the staff, parents, coaches and volunteers who assist Sacred Heart College to have such an extensive Winter sports program. Well done to all involved.
