ACC Sporting Schedule — Term 3, Week 9
Please find attached the ACC Sporting Schedule from Monday, 9 September — Friday, 13 September.
The only ACC Hockey and Basketball matches remaining for the term are Year 7 and 8. With the possible exception of our Year 8A Basketball Team, all other Hockey and Basketball Teams are playing in Minor Playoff Finals this Thursday.
Our 8A Basketball Team have to wait until this Monday afternoon to discover their final ladder position. The result of the rescheduled match between Whitefriars and St Bede’s will decide our finals fate. A win by St Bede’s will put us into the Grand Final Vs Parade this Thursday. Surely St Bede’s can do their fellow Lasallians a favour!
Our Year 9B Basketball Team were narrowly defeated by 2 points by Whitefriars in the Grand Final last Tuesday. After trailing by 10 points early in the match, our boys recovered very well to claw their way back into the match and actually lead with 2 minutes remaining. Whitefriars were just a bit more composed down the stretch and clinched the premiership.
Thank you to Jo Dickson for coaching and managing the Year 9 Basketball Teams throughout Term 3. Jo was fortunate and very grateful to gain assistance with coaching from 2 members of our Senior Basketball Team — Jerome Lugo and Ben Ayre.
Our Senior ACC Term 3 Teams have just completed the most successful season in a long time for De La Salle College.
The Senior Hockey Team were only narrowly defeated in the Semi Final match and this was their only loss for the season. This meant that the Team finished in 3rd place behind St Bede’s and the Premiers, St Bernard’s. Well done to all the Year 11 and 12 boys who represented the College so proudly throughout the season and let’s hope that the Year 11 boys can continue the momentum gained in Senior Hockey this year into 2014.
Thank you to Ms Phibbs who coached and managed the Senior Hockey Squad superbly and their high finish was due in no small part to her enthusiasm, passion and expertise.
The Senior Basketball A Team competed in the Grand Final last Wednesday Vs Whitefriars. It was a very high standard match with both teams having opportunities to win the match. Unfortunately, Whitefriars just proved to be too good in the final 5 minutes to defeat us by 10 points. Our Team certainly proved to be worthy Grand Finalists and their effort and determination in the ultimate match and throughout the season was a credit to our school.
The Senior B Basketball Team won the ACC Premiership last Wednesday defeating St Bernard’s comfortably by 19 points. Despite losing one match for the season, our B Team proved very emphatically that they were the best team in the competition with an almost flawless team display in the Grand Final.
Congratulations to the following members of the ACC Senior B Basketball Premiership Team: Dylan Cowan (Captain) scored 28 points in the Grand Final, Nathan Evans, Brody Ledder, Jack Hanley, Tom Fisher, Kruger Thomson, Michael Hoareau, Will Rennie, Brad Wildoer, Joel Stewart (missed Grand Final due to injury).
There will be a number of Selection Trials for Term 4 ACC Sport (Cricket, Tennis and Volleyball) for Year 7 — 10 being held in the final 2 weeks of Term 4. I ask that all Home Room Teachers ensure that Daily Notices regarding trial arrangements are conveyed to the students.
Good luck to our 2013 ACC Cross Country Team at the ACC Carnival this Wednesday, 11 September at Bundoora Park. Having finished in 3rd place at the past 4 ACC Cross Country Championships behind St Bernard’s and St Bede’s, we are really hoping that we can break into the Top Two this year!
ACC Sport (including Debating and Public Speaking) Photos are being taken this Friday September 13th in the De La Dome at Tiverton from 9:00am. — 1:00pm. A Photo Schedule will be emailed to all staff by this Wednesday, 11 September.
