Monday Night Netball

This week marked the start of the Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools’ Netball (Monday Night Netball) Competition. We had 7 out of our 9 teams competing in the first round of fixtures and all our players represented the College admirably in their first games together. The Junior Teams, PLC Crystal and PLC Garnet had tough games to start with, and while they didn’t get the win, they will have gained valuable experience playing together in preparation for next week. Our Intermediate and Senior teams came out of the blocks firing and all managed to win their fixtures - a great effort. Our Senior A Girls will begin their campaign next week at the very top level of the competition and we wish them all the best.

SCISSA Junior and Intermediate Soccer

Well done to our soccer players on another hard-fought round this week. Our Intermediate Boys played at home against each other with Team 1 coming out victorious. The Intermediate Girls continued on their winning streak with a 3-1 victory over St Andrew’s. The Junior Boys were away at Matthew Flinders this week and had to compete in a doubleheader. The team were competitive in the first match, only going down 1-0 in a tight tussle against Matthew Flinders. Unfortunately backing up for 2 games in one afternoon did take a toll and they were unable to match St Andrew’s skill and intensity in the second game. All teams are very much in the fight for a finals spot and we wish them all the best over the next few rounds. 

SCISSA Senior Volleyball

Our Volleyball teams have now settled into the season and most of the double headers have been played. The Senior Boys Team 1 had a double header this week, but it was their best round to date! Congratulations to the team for going undefeated this round with a draw and a win in their fixtures. It has been a tough season for them so far, and it was great to see their perseverance pay off. The Senior Boys Teams 2 and 3 are showing improvement each week and they are becoming more consistent in their skill execution. The Senior Girls Team 1 went down in two very close sets to Good Shepherd in their A Division fixture and will be looking to bounce back next week. A big congratulations to our Senior Girls Teams 2 and 3 for posting wins this week which will keep them in the hunt for a top-four placing.
