What a busy term we have had for the first half of Term 2. We have had over 20 different Sport teams participating in the Yarra Group Interschool Sports competitions, as well as Yarra Group Cross Country, the Eastern Region Baseball and very recently the Athletics Carnival, which we will feature in the next Newsletter. Sports that have been played this term were Football (Girls and Boys), Netball (Girls and Boys), Badminton, Soccer and Table Tennis. Some of the results are:
Yarra Group Cross Country on Friday May 7 at Lilydale Lake. We took close to 50 students with five of our age group teams coming third (13 girls, 14 boys, 14 girls, 16 boys, Open boys). Two of our age group teams came second (16 girls, Open girls) and overall, the team came 3rd. Individually, Jake Angus in Year 8 came 3rd and Kane Parkinson in Year 10 came 2nd. 24 students finished in the top 15 and can go through to The EMR Cross Country that will be held on June 15 in Yarra Glen.
Congratulations to our winning Year 8 Badminton Girls who came away with the blue flag on Wednesday 12th May and are now heading off to the EMR competition in August. Great work Bella Harlen, Alma Kerr, Merinda Catania
and Natasja Lammertsma.
Congratulations also go to the Senior Badminton girls who won their competition and will be playing in the EMR competition in July. Bridey Withers, Bella Theophanous-Maddison, Noie Petchanan and Anna Nguyen.
Senior Girls also had success coming second in both the Netball (losing only one game) and Basketball, as did the Intermediate Boys Soccer team.
On Tuesday 12th May the Year 8 Netball team competed at the Yarra Group Interschool Netball Competition. All the girls did a great job against some tough competition, with one LHC team coming 3rd overall for the day.
