Girls Dockers Cup

This week, our Junior AFLW players had a fantastic couple of days of competition at this year’s Dockers Cup. The girls played their hearts out and competed with commitment and intensity. The standard of competition improves dramatically each year and our players matched it with all schools, narrowly missing out on the Grand Final in each year level. A big thank you to all the coaches for making it such a fun and enjoyable event.

  • Congratulations to Josh Baker (Yr 12) for achieving ACC Letters in Athletics. First introduced in 2013, the awarding of “ACC Letters” is the highest individual accolade awarded by the ACC. To receive “Letters”, a student must be selected in an All Star team in the same sport for the prescribed minimum of four years. A “Letter” represents long hard days of practice and grueling contests. It represents loyalty and the unselfish faithfulness of each student while in pursuit of a definite goal. Well done Josh.
