We played all our games in the Summer Interschool Sport tournament yesterday. Thank you to Karina, Jo and James who all volunteered their time to come and make the day run smoothly. Here is the wrap-up from the sports leaders (Stevie, Flynn, Georgia, Katrina):
The mixed cricket team played against 3 teams Tylden, Romsey and St. Ambrose. They won the first match against Tylden and lost the other 2 but despite that, they still made it into the finals and whoever won this final came 3rd it was a really close match but we just made it and came 3rd which the whole team was really happy about.
For the boys team, they played against Our Lady of the Rosary which they lost. They played St Ambrose, unfortunately, lost as well. And finally they played off Candlebark and they won! Which put them through to the final fighting for 3rd and they battled against Our Lady Of The Rosary which was also a very close match and they won by 5 runs! Overall everyone tried their best and we all had a blast of a day!
The girls team:
The girls volleyball team played 7 games, they lost 5 and won 2. All of the girls played really well and had great sportsmanship. They gave supporting advice to their teammates and they handled it very well when they lost. Sadly we didn’t place in the top three but we clapped and smiled for the other teams. All of the games were pretty close in points but the main thing was that we all had fun. All the girls played very well and I think we were all winners in the end.
The mixed team:
The mixed team was a team of 2 boys and 6 girls. Everyone tried their hardest and were all great at putting up with losing and didn’t brag about winning. We all played 7 matches against 7 other schools. The results came in and we were all sitting on the floor waiting for the announcement. In the end, we had won 5 games of the 7 and lost 2 though they were all very close. The mixed team ended up coming 2nd with a three way tie. Our games were 18 minutes long. Once the mixed team had had their match, The girls team would go on after a 2-minute break. We all had loads of fun and had a great day. It started to rain once or twice but that didn't stop us from trying our best. Before we all knew it, it was time to pack up, get on the bus and leave to go back to the main campus. It was an amazing day overall and we were all upset to know it was over.
The boys softball team played five games on Wednesday with our coach James. Our first game was versing Kyneton and we lost. In our second game, we were versing Tylden and we lost against them. The next team we played against was Our Lady of the Rosary and we also lost against them. The team we drew against was St Mary's and the last team we played was Bolinda. We technically scored more runs in that game but the horn went to stop and the points only counted from the first innings, so we lost that game. We came last, but we had lots of fun!
The girls softball team played pretty well. They won against the first team which was St Ambrose and they drew against Our Lady of the Rosary. We lost all our other games, but got lots of tips from the other teams! They came fourth overall out of five teams. The girls had a great time and Ms Quinn said even though we lost we did it in style :)
