Marymount Sports Update (Issue 3 2018) Sport

Written on the 31 May 2018

It has been a very busy start to the term with all winter sport well and truly underway for the season. This year we have welcomed many Old Scholars and current Year 12 students to Marymount to coach various sporting teams. Our girls are really enjoying working with these supportive young people and their enthusiasm is evident from the sidelines. We could not offer the wide variety of sports without the help of these young people and the help of our parent coaches, who also volunteer their time. I would also like to thank those Year 9 students, parents and older siblings who umpire games on a weekly basis. This term has also seen the commencement of our Knockout Sporting Teams campaigns. Staff have been busy selecting their teams and training hard for their Round 1 matches. Some teams have already played their Round 1 games and more details on these matches are included below.

Cross Country
On Thursday 24 May, a group of Year 6/7 students attended the SAPSASA Cross Country Carnival at Marion Golf Club. The girls completed the course with great energy and enthusiasm and a special mention goes to Aysha Snell, Tyla Slape, Maya Murphy and Quincy Cormack, who made the South West Region Cross Country team to compete at Oakbank on 7 June.

Year 6/7 Knockout Football
The team played their first game against Woodend Primary School on Friday 18 May. The girls arrived at Sheidow Park to play in heavy rain and the game was tight, especially during the first half. The rain continued intermittently throughout the morning and proudly, the team were able to apply pressure for all four quarters and had numerous scoring opportunities. In the second half the team were able to play in a variety of positions which has allowed them the opportunity to identify areas for improvement before our next game. Thank you to Christos Anemouri for being our goal umpire and also to the parents who braved the weather to support the team.
Hearts 4.14 (38) to Woodend 0.0 (0)  |  Goals: Rylee Carne, Taylor Doak,Bella Marling and Maddi Wilson

Year 6/7 Knockout Netball
Congratulations to Ruby Roberts (captain), Bella Viljoen (vice-captain), Emmerson Aristidou, Milly Bradley, Isabella Cannell, Rylee Carne (injured), Georgia Mackereth, Tysa Miles, Manni Tierney and Natarsha Vlachos, who won their first round match against St Peter's Woodlands on Monday 21 May. The final score was 26-23 after a very closely fought four quarters. The girls made a strong start, showing consistency across the court with their defence and reliability in the goal ring. Thank you to Mae Fraser who scored our match. We continue to train hard in preparation for our Round 2 match!
Coach: Danielle Wilkey

Year 8/9 Touch Football
KO Touch saw the girls travel to play a round robin fixture against competing schools. Going in confident, the girls showed tremendous grit taking on Loreto in the opening game. The day was filled with many highlights including dashing runs down the wing, diving tries, try saving tackles and countless team first plays. Overall, the day finished with the girls finishing in third, only 1 try off second place. All girls represented SHC with distinction.
Coaches: Christos Anemouri and Eliza De Silva

Year 8/9 Knockout Football
The girls travelled to Seaview High School to take on Seaview and Brighton High Schools. Prior to the game there was a feeling of nervousness with girls wanting to put in a strong performance. Game 1 proved to be a challenging game. Seaview did well to slow the Hearts girls progress with the game becoming a battle of territory. Grace Davey battled against a highly fancied opponent in the ruck and Tommi Norman and Natasha Allison looked to pump the ball in to our forwards time after time. Marymount scrambled a couple of goals together and ran the game out winners. Notable performance also from Dani Sartor whose forward pressure gave Seaview defenders headaches and Sumer Ryan who proved to be a dynamic presence in the attacking 50.
Hearts 4.4 (30) to Seaview 1.1 (7)  |  Goals: L Aristidou, T Norman, N Allen, S Ryan

In game 2 the Hearts girls were able to play more to their strength, skillfully passing the ball in long plays of transition from one end of the ground to the other. This suited the Hearts forwards who opted to play with pace and flair, putting the score on the board. Coby Sander wreaked havoc kicking 3 majors and Chloe Dumesny adding another string to her bow by shifting from midfield to forward and kicking 2 goals. Lara Aristidou and Eloise Merchant battled hard in the ruck against bigger opponents having an impact all over the ground. The team was thrown around in the second half and all of the girls contributed to this outstanding team performance. 
Hearts 8.8 (56) to Brighton 1.0 (6)  |  Goals: C Sander 3, C Dumesny 2, L Aristidou, O Burford, L Sargent
Coach: Dominic Ascoli     Assistant: Alex Tilley

Year 8/9 Knockout Netball
Our team - Sophie Allen, Lara Aristidou, Lucy Bond, Annalise Bourke, Olivia Burford, Chloe Dumesny, Maggie Fahey, Georgia Read, Taylah Stallard and Chelsea Swann, have been training hard and will play their Round 1 match against Scotch and Loreto on Wednesday 13 June. We wish the girls the best of luck!
