Cross Country

On Tuesday 9 May over 160 students headed to Norton’s Park for our annual division cross country carnival. The conditions were treacherous, with rain consistently falling in the days leading up to the event. While we only had a few passing showers on the day, the slippery conditions on the challenging track made for an exceptionally tough day.

As usual, our students braved these conditions, and should be super proud of their efforts. MWSC came second overall, losing by a mere 18 points. We also managed to win the Intermediate and the Senior Shield which was a remarkable effort. We also have 49 students who qualified for the EMR carnival.

Congratulations to the following students who finished on the podium:

Bradley C – 2nd in the 13 boys
Olivia T – 2nd in the 14 girls
Julian D – 1st in the 14 boys
Frances SM – 1st in the 15 girls
Aisha H – 2nd in the 15 girls
Sam Pears – 3rd in the 16 boys
Tom Harris – 1st in the 21 boys

Well done to all of our students who attended on the day!

Senior Boys Footy

On Friday 5 April, there was a distinctly country flavour on display for the senior boys footy team. After a solid pre-season that involved torpedo competitions to emulate kicking a ball over a silo and a practice match with the intermediate boys and some very unfit staff, the team was as ready as they would ever be.

It was a great day with the weather holding off and the boys getting to enjoy playing footy in the sunshine. During their first game we easily accounted for Highvale SC and it was great to spin the magnets and see some backmen go forward to kick some goals. We then had to play Vermont SC, and knowing we would play them in the final later in the day decided to once again spin the magnets and give players a run in different positions, unfortunately we didn’t win, but the match provided some great defensive highlights, the tackling and spoiling pressure was immense.

In the final we played Vermont SC and once again they were too strong for us, but it was a much closer contest this time around with a great MWSC second half fight back seeing some goals come from unlikely places.

Despite not progressing to the next round the boys all had a fantastic day out and we all agreed football was the real winner on the day. The theme for the day was 1%ers and every member of the team delivered that in spades.  A special thanks must go to Coach Wall for all his help organising the team at training sessions and on the day. We also want to thank our captains Jack A, Luke G and Ryan K for all their hard work and support of the team. ~ Coach Myers
