Today was our last day of fixtured sport for Term 2. We will however see our Year 9A AFL team in a grand final next week vs St Bernard’s.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following coaches for their dedication and enthusiasm throughout the season:
|1stXVIII AFL – Rob Bonnici, Peter Larsen, Graeme Lawler||Senior Soccer 1st XI – Neil Thomas|
|2nd XVIII AFL – Michael Petrie, Paul Harrup and Rob Hoich||Year 10 Soccer – Jon Edgar|
|Year 10 AFL – Tim Hogan and Mark Sweeney||Year 9A – Nigel Yates|
|Year 9A AFL – Heath Tregear and Peter Houlihan||Year 9B Soccer – Chris Martin|
|Year 9B AFL – David Alexander||Year 8A Soccer – Jon Edgar|
|Year 8A AFL – Shane Mackintosh and John McAlroy||Year 8B Soccer – Andrew Clements|
|Year 8B AFL – Michael Ryan and Ian Gibson||Year 7A Soccer – Shardul Kaneria|
|Year 7A AFL – Shaun Buckley and Michael Wilson||Year 7B Soccer – Gerard ‘Arsene Wenger’ Barns|
|Year 7B AFL – Jeff Locke and Braedon McLean|
As you can see we fielded several extra teams this year and for the most part were competitive in all competitions. Our second XVIII AFL team was reintroduced and missed finals by percentage only. Whilst it was a big commitment from the College to field this amount of teams in ACC competition this year, which presented many challenges securing venues etc., I believe the number of students who benefited by being able to represent their College justified the expansion of the program. The benefits of this expansion will no doubt come to fruition in future years.
Again I sincerely thank the coaches, admin staff (especially Ellenor and Amanda) and Braedon for their hard work in assisting with the Term 2 sporting season.
