The Basketball teams enjoyed another successful week winning the aggregate competition against St Edmund’s College. Our teams who are vying for an AIC premiership have two more games. St Patrick’s hosted Iona this weekend. Our senior teams are at home for the last two rounds of the competition.

The tennis teams had improved success last weekend with a number of teams recording their first win of the season. Sport sometimes teaches tough life lessons. Our Tennis squads are battling each week.

Students are reminded to thank their team coaches and officials at the conclusion of this week’s games for all the time and effort taken to give St Patrick’s students the opportunity to participate in sport. Team captains are requested to put plans in place to organise a thank you to coaches at the end of the season.

The first Track and Field AIC meet was held at UQ on Friday. This meet is mainly for junior athletes. Tennis and Basketball participants are not required as they have season commitments to fulfil. Next Friday 15 September is the first whole College meet at QSAC. Year 5 and 6 Basketball players do not attend this meet. A bus will transport the students to and from the College.

Outstanding Student Achievements


Met North Track and Field Championships Review – Jake Jennings, Track and Field Coordinator

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Kate Colohan, Dan Nethery, Doug Locke and all Track and Field Coaches to congratulate the St Patrick’s competitors for their achievements at the recent Met North Track and Field Championships. The championships were held over three days at University of Queensland with the first day dedicated to junior athletes and featuring our young men selected in the Bramble Bay squad up against other 12 year old’s from St Patrick’s and the district. Days two and three featured a great mix of senior athlete competition as well as a scattering of finals for the junior events. All athletes from St Patrick’s exhibited great competitiveness and it pleases me to say that this year was very successful. A lot of hard work has been put into the planning of this track and field season and results like these are a testament to the great work being done by our St Patrick’s coaches and our dedicated athletes.

The Met North team to compete at States just prior to AIC Champs has not yet been announced but we anticipate up to 15 St Patrick’s boys have been selected which is an outstanding achievement.

Below I have compiled a list of our placegetters from the championships with special mention of some new St Patrick’s records.
