It has been a busy few weeks for several Primary students who have been proudly representing the Glasshouse District at Sunshine Coast Regional Carnivals.
During the holidays Rowan Gough and Connor Anderson were members of the 12 Year Boys’ Softball team who played at Redcliffe against other Sunshine Coast softball teams. The boys played five games with some wins and losses. After a close battle with Coastal the Glasshouse team’s results qualified them for the third and forth playoffs. In this game they played their best game of the carnival having a very close battle with Caboolture eventually beating them to finish in third place overall which was a great result. Connor and Rowan were very useful on the team playing on bases, outfield and occasionally at short stop. Both boys play club softball and really enjoyed this competition against other school boys.
Nick Dwan, Beau Howard and Jake Jeffrey tried their hands at Rugby Union as a variation to their preferred Rugby League and were selected in the Glasshouse District team to play in Caloundra at the Primary Schools Regional Carnival. The boys played 3 games and unfortunately they were beaten in their first game by a very well drilled Independent Team. The other 2 games, the boys did an awesome job keeping the score down but were unable to come up with a win. All the boys in the team played well and had an absolute ball. Nick was captain on Day 2 for their third game and also picked up Man of the Match in that game. Both Nick and Beau were all over the field defending their hearts out. Nick thinks Union is great because “I don’t have to stop tackling”. They were both able to turn the ball over to give Glasshouse some ball which allowed the boys to show their skills. Beau made some very impressive runs and Nick’s defence was absolutely outstanding. Jake enjoyed himself having given it a go. The best thing was all the boys got to try something new and to meet new and old friends. It was a couple of fantastic days.
All five boys really enjoyed their experience in these teams and look forward to more opportunities to play in similar competitions.
