AFLW Crows Cup Carnival
On Wednesday 24 August, 23 Year 5 and 6 students traveled to the Adelaide Lutheran Sports Club to take part in the Crows Cup Carnival. The Carnival has been developed as a fun and safe environment for girls across South Australia to give AFL a go, get active and to introduce them to the female football pathway. Any Year 5 and 6 SAC student who was interested in participating was given the opportunity to be involved.
The day was a great success, although very wet, the girls loved getting out there in the mud! Students came to the event with a range of experience from never kicking a football to being exposed to the sport at the carnival last year or otherwise but all had a great time, even winning some matches along the way!
A big thanks to Year 10 students, Gracie Sim and Isabelle Crotty who were excellent role models for the girls imparting some of their knowledge and experience to make the day full of learning and fun.
We look forward to taking part in the event again next year.
Lacrosse: That’s a Wrap!
The Year 4-6 lacrosse team finished off the season strongly. Led by dedicated coach Ruby Zada-Schwarz, the team improved a lot throughout the season with their weekly training ensuring that their skills were transferred into some excellent game play on Saturdays. The last few games ended in a draw, a win and a hard fought close loss. I hope the team enjoyed their games and that they will be back next year for another season of lacrosse!
East Adelaide SAPSASA District Athletics Day
On Friday 2 September, seventeen students travelled out to Bridgestone Stadium to take part in the East Adelaide District Athletics Day. Students from Years 4-6 trialed to make the team and were also picked from their results at the SAC Athletics Carnival where possible. Although the girls were there competing for St Aloysius, they were also there to trial to make the East Adelaide SAPSASA Athletics team.
We had many amazing results throughout the day but the best thing to see was the encouragement the girls continuously gave to each other. To see the comradery between them and the genuine happiness they displayed for each other when their fellow team member performed well was so great to see.
Some highlights include:
- Lottie Fahey (Year 6 student): 2nd in the 12-year-old 800m
- Maia Burdon (Year 5 student): 1st in the 11-year-old 1500m and High Jump, and 2nd in the 100m and 200m
- Sidney Fahey (Year 5 student): 2nd in the 11-year-old long jump
- Mila Zunic (Year 4 student): 1st in the 10-year-old long jump
- Elsie O’Halloran (Year 5 student): made the 10-year-old 100m and 200m finals and Saira Mohammadi made the 12-year-old 200m final
- Our 10-year-old relay team came 2nd and the 11-year-old relay team came 3rd
A big congratulations to Maia Burdon and Mila Zunic who have both been selected to be a part of the East Adelaide SAPSASA Athletics team to compete back at the Bridgestone Stadium later in the year. Congratulations girls and good luck!
