Good luck to all the girls playing in the final round of the Term 2 IGSSA Basketball and Football competitions this Saturday and fingers crossed for all teams competing for a 1st place finish!



Unfortunately, the fairy tale is over – the CIS Cup run has come to an end.
The semi-final had a false start last week when heavy rain and lightning forced the fixture to be rescheduled. Loreto took the lead in the 13th minute through some excellent pressing from Tahliah Vecchio who delivered a calm finish, however Oakhill were quick to return serve, equalising 20 minutes into the 1st half. Loreto were dominant in possession and chances but were unable to find the winner in normal time, sending the game to extra time. Oakhill had a chance to put the tie to bed late on in extra time but failed to do so, sending the game to a penalty shootout. In what is the hardest way to lose a match, Oakhill kept their composure and won the shootout 4-1.

This has been a tremendous Cup run from the squad and our best finish since 2013. Congratulations to all the girls who been a part of it and special thanks to coach Steve Charters and football coordinator Vicki Linton for their efforts.



Our North West Equestrian Expo squad have delivered the goods again, coming away with some exceptional results from Coona! Every girl rode outstandingly, with the exceptional results coming from Tahlia Coleiro (Year 9) who finished 1st in the Open Heavyweight Hack 16hh & Over and was awarded the Reserve Champion Rider in the 14 years age group, Juliette Denny (Year 8) who won Div 1 Combined Training 1, Bella Dent (Year 8) who was 1st in AM7 D Grade Showjumping and Ginger Soames (Year 10) who was the 16 years champion in the Working Horse Challenge and Warrumbungles Way. A full list of results is available on the Loreto Sport Facebook page.

A big thanks must go to the parents who work so hard to keep our team succeeding, particularly Mrs Lisa Soames who has been an invaluable team manager. Thanks also to Equestrian coordinator Jess Levy for all her hard work in coordinating the Coona team!


Cross Country

Seven  Normo girls represented IGSSA/IPSHA at the CIS Cross Country Championships at Eastern Creek on Thursday and there were some sensational results with all girls running exceptionally well. There were three top-10 finishes with Sarah Playford (Year 12) coming 9th in the 17 years, Neve Tierney (Year 5) coming 5th in the 11 years and Georgia Arcus (Year 8) nabbing a bronze with a fantastic run in the 13 years event.
