Nick Dwan and Tara Fissenden have been training hard in preparation for the Rugby League and Netball State Championships respectively.
Nick competed as a member of the 11 Year Boys Sunshine Coast Rugby League team at Stanthorpe. He played five games over five days and had a great carnival playing really well making about 130 tackles and many penetrating runs with the ball.
The boys won one, drew one and lost three but they improved each game and did very well against the two regions which they had trial games against before going to Stanthorpe. Sunshine Coast finished the competition in 6th place.
The competition was an amazing experience for Nick and he is now looking forward to next year with the hope of making the Sunshine Coast Regional team again.
Tara Fissenden is our new State Champion. She very much enjoyed her experience playing in the 11 year Girls Sunshine Coast Netball team at the Queensland State Championships held in Caloundra in June. Her team combined really well together and were unbeaten at the Carnival. Tara excelled, playing in all seven games at Goal Defence and finished the day totally exhausted but exhilarated at becoming State Champions!! What a great result from a very dedicated team. Many shooters were frustrated by Tara’s defence in and around the goal circle where she stopped many scoring opportunities.
We are very proud of these two students and look forward to seeing them succeed in their chosen sports for many years to come.
