Winter Sports Resume

I hope that all students have had a restful break.

The Winter Sports season starts again from Week 1 with all teams playing on Saturday, as per their respective fixtures.

Please check all information carefully and ensure that you have all your gear ready to go from Week 1.

National Trampoline Selection

During the recent holiday period, Flynn Gregor (Year 10) was selected for the National Trampoline Team and represented Australia in the FIG Trampoline World Cup held in Coimbra, Portugal in late June.

The Australian team faced competition from countries including Spain, Portugal, Germany, the UK and Hungary. Flynn placed an impressive third in the individual trampoline event and he came seventh in the synchronised trampoline event in which he performed with another member of the Australian team.

Flynn then travelled with the Australian team to Switzerland where he competed in the Nissen Cup event, an international junior trampolining event.

Indoor Cricket National Championships

Recently, some of our cricketers have been involved in the Indoor Cricket National Championships. The tournament was held at Casey Stadium in Cranbourne East and ran from Sunday, 26 June, to Saturday, 9 July.

Siddhant Goel (Year 8) was Co-Captain of the Victorian Under 14 Boys Indoor Cricket Team. They finished third in the National Championships. They won their semi-final against New South Wales but lost their preliminary final to Western Australia—a win would have taken them through to the Grand Final.

Dinal Gamage (Year 11), Alex Russell (Year 11), Zac Grech (Year 11) and Nic Tindall (Year 11) represented the Victorian Under 18 Boys Indoor Cricket Team. After finishing third on the ladder after their round matches, the Victorians won all their finals games which were all sudden death elimination contests.

They beat the previously undefeated Western Australian team in a thrilling Grand Final to claim the Under 18 Boys Indoor Cricket National title. Following the tournament, Nic Tindall (Year 11) was selected in the Under 18 Boys 2022 All-Star Team for his performances. A phenomenal achievement.

Zac Grech (Year 11) was also good enough to be selected in the Victorian Under 22 Boys Indoor Cricket Team that finished third. Being selected was an outstanding achievement given that Zac is 17-years-old.

Siddhant Goel (Year 8) was selected in the Under 14 Boys 2022 All-Star Team for his performance. The All-Star Team is made up of the 10 best players from each division playing in the tournament. Siddhant scored the most runs for the Under 14 Boys achieving 203. The second highest score was 166.
