Out of Hours Sport Recap - Term 3, Week 3
This week saw our teams kick of their 'finals' campaigns, with many of our teams facing off to secure a spot in their respective grand finals next weekend.
Table Tennis It was a joyous occasion for the Middle B table tennis team, who claimed their first win of the season against St. Paul's College in a thrilling encounter (11-9). Credit must go to coach Chris Zunis who has aided the growth and resilience of the team who had experienced a number of close losses up until this point. Well done to Kamyar (7) and Ivan (8) who both played a pivotal role in the win.
Badminton There was a lot at stake for our star-studded badminton teams this week, with all four (3 senior, 1 middle) teams finishing in the top 4 within their respective competitions. Congratulations to the Senior B1, Senior C2 and Middle A teams who all moved on through to the Grand finals on the back of excellent performances. Special mentions to Tavleen (11), Vanshika (10) and Angelina (9) who were vital in their team's successes.
Netball The middle netball teams showed tremendous courage to brave the horrible conditions in their matches, whilst our senior side, who enjoyed a 6-point win experienced the luxuries of the indoor Loreto College facilities. A big congratulations to the Year 7B team (29-13) led by Mia and Lucy and the Year 8/9B team (22-16), led by Daisy and Chelsea who both secured stand out wins against teams placed above them in the standings to secure a grand final birth.
Basketball This week's Senior basketball left spectators without fingernails, as our Senior A's drew to Scotch College 62-62 who equalised in the dying stages. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of Ronan and Frank the Senior B fell agonizingly close, falling one point short on the day. Well done to Zuber (11), Ammaron (11) and Sari (11) who played multiple games on the day.
The middle basketball teams faced a repeat of the previous week in coming up against Gleeson/Pedare for the second week running. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of Parth (Middle C) and Qipeng (Middle A) it was a very similar story for the boys facing strong opposition in defeat.
Soccer Both soccer teams were on the road this week as our Middle B (Year 7) team faced Mercedes and the Middle A team slogged it out against PAC in the pouring rain. Goals were hard to come by in the later of the two clashes that ended in a 0-0 draw thanks to strong defensive efforts from Jaylen (9) and Seungwoo (9). The same could not be said for the Middle B boys, who put four past Mercedes College on their way to a 4-0 win. Well done to Nimish (7) and David (7), who were stand out performers.
