From the Secondary Sport Coordinator
Summer sport has commenced over the last 2-3 weeks,
with our volleyball, tennis, basketball, touch football and water polo teams off to an exciting start!
During Round 2, on the 18th of February, the Catholic Girls Schools Sports Association hosted ‘Blue Round’. This important calendar event aims to raise awareness for mental health and the work that Beyond Blue does for those experiencing mental health issues. Across all venues, teams were asked to wear it blue to raise awareness and show their support. At SAC, our students and visiting teams exchanged a blue ribbon for words of support and positivity for others to read.

Trials for our Year 9 & 10 and Year 11&12 knockout netball teams were held Thursday 9th March. A second trial will likely be held during lunchtime or after school in the next couple of weeks followed by team selections shortly after. Year 7 & 8s will also have an opportunity to trial for in the near future – so keep an eye out on the student bulletin on SEQTA for trial dates.
Six students represented St Aloysius College in the School Sport SA Individual Swimming Secondary Championships last Friday. The performances were outstanding, with most of our competitors achieving PBs in one or more events. A special mention to Claire Borgmeyer for her outstanding performance in 50m Breaststroke, which was only .02s off the record time for her age group! We wish all competitors the best of luck in their road to state championships.
