The Year 7 team were in a competitive pool and only narrowly missed a place in the finals by finishing 3rd. The boys comfortably won their first game against Green Point Christian College. They narrowly lost their second game after they were down 4-0 in the opening minutes against Northlakes High School. They showed resilience and determination to make a comeback and narrowly lose the game 4-3. The game against Wadalba High School was extremely challenging as they were a well drilled and very experienced team. The final pool game against Gorokon High School saw the boys win comfortably and finish the day on a high. The support of the parents and the sportsmanship shown by the players added to the success and enjoyment of the day.
Our Year 8 team demonstrated their outstanding ability, winning all of the games in their pool by a considerable margin. The finals proved to be a bit tougher and in the grand final against Tumbi Umbi High School there were a few nervous moments on the sideline, but the boys’ structure proved unbeatable when they took home the win 4-2. The sportsmanship and teamwork which was displayed throughout the day was commendable and it was amazing to see them represent the College with such maturity. A special mention to Year 10 students Tyrone Dorrell and Jackson Herbert who coached the team, and shared their knowledge and experience of the game, which the students clearly benefitted from. A special congratulations to Archie Mesritz who was awarded man of the match in the grand final and received a medal for his efforts.
Our Year 8 team will represent the College again in June at the Champion of Champions Tournament.
