Monday Night Netball

It was a hard round for many of our teams this week in the Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools’ competition with a number of teams starting in new divisions. Well done to our Junior teams Crystal and Amber for competing in some close games, only going down by a small margin. PLC Garnet secured a win, albeit a forfeit win, and we hope that their hard work at training pays off in the game next week. Well done to the PLC Opals team for continuing their unbeaten run this season. Our PLC Sapphire team had some high-level competition this week playing against last year’s grand finalists. The team put in a great effort, and while they were not ultimately victorious, they showed the skills and determination needed to succeed in A Division. We wish our teams all the best for next week.

SCISSA Junior and Intermediate Soccer

As we draw close to the end of the season, it was great to see our teams push forward with a focus on a potential finals berth. Our Intermediate Girls and Boys Team 2 played hard but went down in some close matches. Our Junior Boys went in with a lot of confidence from their win last week but faced some strong opposition against a strong Matthew Flinders team. Congratulations to the Intermediate Soccer Boys Team 1 for their strong win against Nambour Christian College. 

SCISSA Senior Volleyball

Well done to our Senior Volleyball teams for another competitive round in the SCISSA Competition. Special mentions go to the Senior Girls Team 1 and 3 for their home wins on Friday night. The win for the Senior Girls Team 1 puts them firmly into the hunt for finals. We wish all the teams the best for their final round next week.
