Winter Sport Commences This Week!

Our senior footy team kicked off the winter season on Wednesday, with a tough game against Nazareth Catholic College. All soccer, netball and badminton games will begin tomorrow across a range of Catholic Schools in SA. Please refer to the draws on the SEQTA Term 2/3 Sport Portal, and for further information regarding absences and scoring/timing rosters. 

Note that regrading will occur after Round 4, and new draws will be released after this time. This may mean venues/game times are changed. We are looking forward to an exciting season of winter sport!

Knockout & Interschool Sport

On Wednesday 8 May, St Aloysius College competed at the annual SA Catholic Girls Secondary Schools Swimming Championships. It was a very successful day for our secondary swim team, placing competitively in all age divisions, and finishing overall champions for the day!

Apart from finishing aggregate champions, there were many individual successes and records made. Specific congratulations to the following students who met or set the SACSSGSA record:

Trials for knockout basketball and netball have been taking place over the last week of Term 1 and first week of Term 2. We thank all students who came out to trial and showcase their skills! Team selections will take place over the next week and will be placed on the Knockout Sport Portal, along with training information.

Sporting Spotlight

A number of SAC students will be representing their cheer club, Outlaws All Starts, at the Cheerleading Championships in Honolulu, Hawaii from 17th – 19th May. This event hosts athletes from all around the USA and the world, with thousands expected to participate this year. Anna, (9LF), Bermuda (10PK), Ruby (5NP), Grace (5NP), Paige (4AC) and Tiana (8SN) were selected for one of the club’s elite teams as part of an audition process. A high number of athletes tried out to be on the team, however only 17 were chosen for the “Golden Gunz”, who set off next week for Hawaii.

The girls and families are very grateful for the support and contributions made by the SAC community from the movie fundraiser and raffle tickets, which is helping cover some of the high costs in attending this overseas event.

We congratulate the girls on their selection and wish them all the best of luck!

A big congratulations also goes out to the following students who have been selected to represent South Australia at National Championships for their respective sports.

Remi (9KS) was selected to represent School Sport SA at the 15 Years and Under Netball Championships, held in the Gold Coast through late July/early August.

Chloe (6IW) was selected to represent School Sport SA at the School Sport Australia 12 Years and Under Swimming Championships. The team will also compete in the Gold Coast late July.

Claire (11CE) was also selected to represent School Sport SA at the School Sport Australia 13 to 19 Years Swimming Championships

Along with some recent accolades at the National Age Swimming Championships and National Open Swimming Championships, Claire will also be heading to Brisbane for the Olympic Swimming Trials for the 100 Breaststroke in June as her next opportunity to gain valuable experience in her development.
