By Maarten De Kruijf, Co-ordinator - Football
The Under 8 Green, White and Blue came all out in action last week in the Varsity Champions League competition. The U15s played in The Carrara Elite League.

Next week is Round 7 of the APS Summer Season and the Spartans play against All Saints Anglican. This is the second last round of matches until the finals. Week 5 (next week) will be the last week of training for Years 7 to 10.
170 Somerset College students are now involved in the Somerset Basketball Club which plays on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. The number of members has doubled from this time last year and is always looking for new players to get involved.
During the September school holidays, Matthew Sprague competed in 2 major gymnastics competitions (Level 6): State Titles (Chandler Brisbane). 7th place Overall (Level 6 Open) and 7th place pommel, 7th place high bar, 6th place vault. He then went on to National Club Championships (Bendigo, Victoria).
Recovering from injury (which saw him withdraw from Gold Coast Regionals in August), he came back to place 3rd place in Australia on High Bar and 2nd Place on Pommel in the Level 6 division. He helped his club (Super Performance Centre at Ashmore) to place 3rd club in Australia across all divisions. Also a member of the Level 6 team was Michael Dobroskok (Year 7).
It was a great night at the 2017 Somerset Rowing Dinner. A lot of worthy recipients of awards and you definitely sense the spirit and comradery in the room. Coach Andrew Butler spoke about the importance of boat loading and boat unloading. Focusing on doing the ‘little things’ well that ultimately lead to big things. Katie Plume and Blake Mills will have the honour of being Rowing Captains for 2018.
