Secondary Sport Update - August
Great Results at NWD Athletics
Just over 100 secondary students formed Northside’s athletics team, which competed at the North West District Athletics Carnival held recently at the UQ Athletics Centre. An awesome team spirit prevailed during the two days of competition. This, along with some stand-out individual performances, saw Northside finish 1st in the Percentage Trophy and 5th overall. Congratulations to Genevieve Giavon (12 years girls) and Josephine Giavon (17 years girls), who were District Age Champions. Best wishes to the 45 students who have progressed to the Met North Track and Field Championships being held next week.
Podium Finish for Senior Boys Volleyball Team
Our Senior Boys Volleyball Team finished in 3rd place in the Brisbane Outer Schools Volleyball League. The boys played well as a team and improved significantly throughout the season.
BOSBL Season Summary
Week 4 saw the final games of this year’s Brisbane Outer Schools Basketball season. All teams performed well throughout the season, with a special mention to our Junior Girls team who finished 2nd and Junior Boys who narrowly missed out on a podium finish, placing 3rd overall. Congratulations to the following students who were named in the All BOS Honour Team: Isaac McIver (Junior Boys), Eden Cotterell (Junior Girls) and Brendan Phillips (Senior Boys).
Congratulations to the Middle School Netball teams who represented the College in the Brisbane Christian School tournament. The Grade 9 team finished second and the Grade 7/8 team finished third in the Middle School competition. This is an outstanding effort considering they were playing some large Netball schools. Well done girls!
Our Senior Boys Tennis Team had some great results at the Queensland Schools Team Tennis Challenge earlier this term. All boys played well against very competitive and well-trained teams, resulting in some extremely close matches. As usual, students’ sportsmanship was a highlight.
State Futsal Titles
After an outstanding performance in the Regional Futsal Titles, our U16 Boys Futsal team competed in the Southern Queensland Champion of Champions on 28 July. It was a tremendous effort to progress so far in this competition, and our boys performed well against extremely tough competition.
Congratulations to Joshua Hong (Year 10) on being selected in the Queensland Schools Football Team. Joshua will be competing in the Australian School Football Championships in Adelaide later this year.
