Shane Lunniss, Director of Sport
Last week was the opening of the APS Winter Season and all results can be found on Schoolbox. This week we play Kings in APS Round 2 and prepare for the upcoming APS Cross Country Carnival.
Casey had a successful Aussie Surf Titles campaign in Perth where his Surf Teams ran 2nd in the Surf Race, Cameron Team a 6th and individually he finished 10th in the Surf Race out of a strong field of 32 finalists.
For the past two weeks, Year 10 student Kipp Thrupp has been competing at the Australian Championships, playing for Queensland.
With two pools made up of teams from every state, a team needed to finish first or second in their respective pool to make the cross-over semi-final matches. Kipp’s team won the tournament! Kipp was equal third highest goal scorer for this national tournament and received player of the match in one of the 8 round games.
While there is no Australian team selected for Kipp’s age group, there is selection into the National Talented Players Group for Development. Based on Kipp’s performance in this national competition, he has again been selected into this elite development squad.
We congratulate Kipp on his outstanding achievements in hockey. We see first-hand his arduous training schedule on top of his schooling and have the utmost respect for this young man as he strives to achieve in a very demanding and competitive sport.
