ACC Cross Country
The College finished 3rd overall in this year’s virtual Cross Country Meet and is the highest Newman has finished in the last 10 years. It was a total team effort, however congratulations to the following athletes who achieved top five finishes and ACC All Star status:
- Harrison Warwick and Charlie Cossom: U13 Boys
- Luke Bourke and Presley Ellis: U14 Boys
- Daniel Gleeson and James Hart: U15 Boys
- Nicholas Tranter: U16 Boys
- Ellie Jones: Open Girls
- Will McAullay: Open Boys
Despite some significant challenges, the whole team performed with genuine grit and determination in achieving our goal of remaining in A division this year. Many athletes competed in unfamiliar events and beyond their own age groups which proved the difference in achieving this fantastic result. Again, our relay teams delivered under the pressure of competition, reinforcing the importance of our training program. There were also many outstanding individual performances with the following students being awarded age champions and ACC All Stars:
- Imogen Boss: ACC All Stars for 3 events and A Division U14 Champion Girl
- Luis Uribe Carrero: A Division U16 Champion Boy
- Dean Morse: ACC All Stars for 2 events
- Harry Prentice: ACC All Stars
- Tania Barilla: ACC All Stars
- William Sartor: ACC All Stars
Our NAS Golf team led by Mr Cotterel competed in the annual NAS Golf Competition at the Wembley Golf Course last week. For the first time in the College’s history, Newman won the event defeating John XXIII and Sacred Heart Colleges. The team was led by George Barclay, who with his partner Zac Rodkiewicz, shot an amazing even par 70. These two players were ably supported by Nathan King and Jude Tanham.
Marist Cricket First XI
The Marist First XI Cricket team has been selected and will be led by John Lucas.
