The U15G started our season with a tough loss, losing by 7 and always chasing the game. Nevertheless, they were resilient and motivated to work to the end, displaying some excellent team spirit and determined play. Some of the movement and skill was outstanding, typified by a huge 3 hit by Pear that was positively downtown!
The U13s and Senior Boys are in action this week.
Please see the STA Sports calendar for details.
Our first foray into the world of cross country was a resounding success! We entered a U13 and U15 team of experienced runners and students who have consistently scored well in our regular bleep tests, as well as some who have started well in Mr. Angelo’s track team.
The excitement and nervousness was palpable but we ended up with winners in the U13 Boys and U15 Girls. It was clear that everyone enjoyed the experience - just look at their faces in the photo! - and it was great to mix with our Primary students too!
