Term 3, Week 6, 2016 - Sports Update

2016 09 02 sports notice web 08NSW Interschools Snowsports
Year 2 student, Isla Castle, loves the fast pace of alpine skiing! Isla competed in the Pymble Cup, held in Perisher and the Northern NSW Regionals for the Interschools Snowsports, held in Thredbo. Isla won the bronze medal in both these Alpine Giant Slalom events.

In her quest for speed at Thredbo, Isla was placed 4th in the NSW State Championships. Isla said she nearly missed a gate on her second run, which would have been an automatic disqualification. Thankfully, she made it and now has the opportunity to compete at the Nationals. What a fantastic effort!

We wish Isla well as she competes next week at the Australian Interschools Championships at Perisher.

School Sports Australia Football Championship
Year 12 student, Nathan Philips, represented NSW competing at the School Sports Australia Football Championship in Western Australia recently. The team had a very successful tournament against stiff competition. With four wins and one draw, NSW came away undefeated with the School Sports Australia Championship trophy.

Nathan was awarded the Most Valued Player at the tournament which is an outstanding achievement! For the second year running, Nathan has been selected to the Australian Schoolboy's Team. In January, 2017, the team will compete in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

We wish Nathan and the Australian Schoolboys Team every success as they compete against the English teams.

All Schools Cross Country Championships
Cameron Bali, Year 7 New Hope School, competed in the All Schools Cross Country Championships in Canberra. He was placed 3rd in his event, receiving the bronze medal. The event was held in freezing conditions which may have helped the students run even faster!

Cameron enjoyed the event and we congratulate him for this fantastic result.
