Senior Girls Softball

On Wednesday 1 March, the Senior Girls’ Softball team headed out to play a single game against Glen Waverley. On a typical Melbourne day, the girls endured all four seasons over the course of the day.

The team was expertly led by co-captains Zoe M and Emma P. Glen Waverley started strong and it was a tight first innings with Mount trailing by one run. However, it was during the second innings where the match was blown open with Glen not making a run in the second innings. With scores level in the third innings and Mount stepping up to bat the dugout was filled with tension. To the girls credit they played a composed third innings and ended up running out 13-16 winners.

The team will advance to the next round, but more importantly, they represented their school with a great sense of school spirit. As their coach I was extremely proud of how they handled the day and represented the school. Go team!  ~ Mr Myers



Swimming Carnival

On Monday 6 March, 53 students headed off to the Oakleigh pool to compete in the division swimming carnival. With our cancelled house carnival hovering over us like a dark cloud, we were so impressed with our students’ willingness to put their name forward, despite not having a full opportunity to try out for various events.

It was an amazing day of competition, and we could not have been more proud of our swimmers. They all stepped out of their comfort zone to swim new events or multiple events. Despite narrowly losing to Vermont on the day by a mere 17 points, we managed to win both the junior and the intermediate shields.

Congratulations to the following students who were declared Year level champions:
  • 15 girls – Aleisha C
  • 15 boys – Hyuga W
  • 17 girls – Edolie R
  • 17 boys – Patrick D

We now look forward to watching our super fish take on the best at the Eastern Metropolitan Region Carnival in a few weeks time!  ~  Mr Gwynne and Mr Newport
