Tennis & Basketball

The AIC Aggregate Tennis and Basketball season began last Saturday. Our 1st V Basketball Team lit up the Christian Brother Building winning the first ever senior game played on the court. Overall St Patrick's were narrowly defeated by Iona by one game in the aggregate competition. Our Tennis teams won aggregate but unfortunately our 1st IX Team were defeated. This week we play our neighbours Padua College. Seniors and Year 6 will again be playing at home.

The Paddies Battalion needs the students of St Patrick's! The stage was overflowing last Saturday and we encourage the same support this weekend. This Saturday it is a 12:00noon tip-off, with a free sausage sizzle at 11:15am. Students are encouraged to stay and support the 1st V Team. A reminder that all students must be in formal uniform.

Track & Field

Track & Field training is currently in full swing. Students and parents are reminded that it is an excellent opportunity for all students to improve their speed, strength and power through participation in the training activities. Increased athletic performance will assist students compete in their other chosen sports. Training is open to all students, not just the athletes trying to gain school selection. Also, Mr Ryan Schultz sent many emails to students who showed 'talent' following the Interhouse Athletics Carnival, inviting them to participate. All training sessions are listed on the Track & Field page on the Connect page and the St Patrick's APP.
