Many of our students have been involved in end of season finals in their chosen winter sports. It is great to have so many students playing sport outside of the college.
At the Caloundra Netball Association Club Finals 11 GCCC girls played in finals. The Tibros Sapphires team and Opals team won their games to become champions. The Sapphires with Tara Fissenden, Tess Hagan and Eloise Grigor fought a goal-for-goal battle against Meridan and only gained the lead and win in the final thirty seconds of extra time! Amber Weatherburn’s team, the Opals, also won their final, easily beating their opposition.
Rugby League finals were also played last weekend with Ryan Sauer and Jack Fissenden’s Under 13 Beerwah Bulldogs team finishing strongly but were beaten by a slick Maroochydore team.
Soccer finals saw three Beerwah teams play with Harry Fullerton’s Under 13 Division 2 team playing really well to beat Buderim 2 – 0. They were the only Beerwah team to win their final.
The Beerwah Under 17 girls’ soccer team were very unlucky not to be in the finals after being Minor Premiers with the nearest team scoring fifty goals less than them in the regular season. Unfortunately injury to players meant the team was not at full strength and was beaten in the preliminary finals by a team they would normally have beaten.
Congratulations to all students who were in other finals we have not yet heard about. We strongly encourage students to play club sport as a way of improving their own skills and also meeting players from all over the area.
Summer sports are just beginning so get along to a local club and have some fun whilst staying fit. Some options would include touch football, softball and tee ball, futsal, cricket, tennis, BMX and karate. More information about these sports can be found on line or contact Mrs Stott at College.
