Term 2 IGSSA Sport
What a fantastic season of sport for our IGSSA Footballers and Basketballers! Last Saturday saw the final round of matches and there were some tremendous results.
In football, our Junior 1sts team capped off an amazing season, winning their final game to confirm their status as J01 champions and going undefeated. The LON06 team also achieved an undefeated season to take out 1st place and LON09 were unlucky to go undefeated but finished 2nd in their division.
In basketball, LON03 went through undefeated and in 1st place, as did LON04, LON08, LON12, LON13 & LON14. LON20 also finished top of their pool.
A huge thanks to everyone who made this season possible, including coaches, officials and supporters, but mostly thank you to all the students who trained and played each week and had a great time doing it.
Athletics Carnival Results
The results from the 2019 Secondary School Athletics Carnival have been finalized and it was Maye that took home the big one, finishing on top of the Point Score tally for the 2nd year running. Mulhall was awarded the Spirit Cup and Zoe Warland (Year 12) repeated her 2018 success by winning the 100m Invitational. The following girls were our age and divisional champions:

All Schools Football
Congratulations to Greta Kraszula (Year 11) who represented NSW CIS at the NSW All Schools Football tournament this week and has been selected for the NSW All Schools Football team to play at the SSA Championships to be held in Queensland later this year. Greta was also named as the Most Valuable Player for CIS.
Massive congratulations to Charlotte Horbach who has been in camp in Brisbane for the past week at the Australian Elite Diving Nationals. She has just completed her first event today and did fantastically well to come 3rd in the 3m springboard and take home bronze! She has 3m synchro tomorrow and then 1m springboard on Sunday so we’ve got our fingers and toes crossed for her for those events as well – go Charlotte!
Netball Schools’ Cup
Well done to our Year 10 Netball Schools Cup team who have qualified from the Northern Suburbs Netball Association for the Sydney Metro Regional Finals that will take place early next term. They were dominant throughout the day and showed some excellent skills to confirm their spot in the next stage – well done girls!
As most students put their feet up and take a well-earned rest from Sport, our Snowsports team will be carving up Perisher as they compete in the Northern NSW and Queensland Interschools Snowsports Championships during the middle week of the holiday. Good luck to all the girls involved and I’ll have a full recap of results in the first newsletter in Term 3.
