Year 10 Hockey ACC Premiers

On Tuesday 5 September, a blustery and wet afternoon, the Year 10 Hockey team kept their winning streak alive by winning their fourth consecutive Premiership. This team has only ever lost one game in four years and won all the games they played this season. The team got off to a great start with Elias Fernandez scoring a goal in the opening two minutes, with a total of five goals to zero at the half-time break. The team went on to defeat Emmanuel eight goals to one, in one of their best team performances of the year. Clearly, the senior team will be very strong next year as the players from Year 11 and 12 combine. It has been great to watch all the team members develop as players over the course of the last two seasons. The skill of Elias Fernandez and Declan Edwards is something to behold and I would encourage anyone who gets a chance to watch either of these two in action to do so. You won’t be disappointed! It was also great that all 15 boys who were in the team got a chance to play and contribute to this Historic De La winning streak.

Goal Scorers on the day were: Elias Fernandez 3, Joel May 2, Declan Edwards 2, Arki Konstanopoulos 1

Best Players on the day: Declan Edwards, Elias Fernandez, Arki Konstanopoulos, Sam Andrews, Joel May, Joe Tutty

Year 11 student, Liam Halloran recently competed in the Australian Cross Country Championships in Wollongong. Liam ran in the Victorian team which earned a silver medal, and he ran in the top 20 overall in Australia. A fantastic achievement! Well done, Liam.
