Last week our College enjoyed success on the sports field. Our swim team placed 6th overall at the AIC Swimming Championships which was a respectable result given the highly competitive nature of the competition. St Peter’s Lutheran College were the outstanding team on the day. Our swimmers gained a number of top three placings and many individual personal best times for the season.

1st XI Cricket had a strong 100 plus runs win on Saturday. The 1st VI volleyball also won very convincingly 3-0 in quick time. All our open teams in both cricket and volleyball recorded victories. Our 11A, 2nd VI and 4th VI volleyball are still undefeated this season.

Sign on has now been completed for both football and rugby. Due to the increased number of students wishing to participate, SPC require enthusiastic, experienced coaches in rugby and football to assist in our programs. If you would like to coach or referee this season please email the coordinator. The contact details are listed below.

Students and community members are invited to participate in a practice Shore 2 Gate run this Sunday morning. The Shorncliffe Shufflers will be running the course departing the Plaza area at 6:00am. A swim afterwards is always a great reward after the run.

The first cross country meet of the season is on this Friday at Nudgee College. Racing starts at 4:00pm. Interested students should see Mr Tim Hoysted or Mr Jackson Alves to reserve a seat on the bus.

A reminder for students who have signed on for cross country, rugby and football, that the in season sports of cricket and volleyball training sessions always takes priority over all other preseason sports sessions.

Exams are fast approaching and students are reminded to take a ‘balanced’ approach to their sporting commitments during this time. Students are asked to communicate with sports specific coordinators or directly with coaches well in advance if a problem is identified.
