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.

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.
