Big Week of Sport in Secondary School
Week 4 was extremely busy in the Secondary Sports Department. The district athletics carnival, two soccer carnivals, as well as a rugby and netball carnival saw many students spending almost the entire week on the sporting field, and kept our sports staff on their toes!
Our Secondary athletics team were rewarded for their good performances and awesome participation at the North West Secondary Athletics Carnival, winning the Percentage Trophy. Almost 40 athletes (approximately 50% of our school team) have been selected in the NWS Team to compete at the Regional Championships later this term, and the following athletes were named District Age Champions: Joanna H (12 years girls); Genevieve G (13 years girls); Zakai P (13 years boys) and Jonathon W (17 years boys).
Our middle school and senior boys and girls soccer teams all performed well at the Christian School Sports Association of Queensland (CSSAQ) gala days. All teams enjoyed close competition, with our Senior Girls team progressing through the day undefeated until a 3-0 loss in the final, and our Junior and Senior Boys placing 2nd and 3rd overall respectively. Congratulations to Kes Isaac who was named Player of the Tournament for the Junior Boys.
Our Middle School Netball Teams competed in the Super 7’s tournament, with varying results across different divisions. Best placed were our Year 10 team who placed 2nd in Division 1 and our Year 8/9 Team who won their division. Well done girls!
The week finished with our Under 15 and Open Rugby teams playing in the Sunshine Coast Rugby 7’s Tournament. Both teams played well, and all appreciated the recovery swim at Caloundra after the event.
