This week for APS Season 2 will see Seniors playing against Emmanuel College this week. Results from Week 4's round against Coomera Anglican College can be found in the Resources section.
Congratulations to Staff Spartan of Week 3 and 4 Mark Pitura, Damian Flint and Royce Smith.
Mark arranged a fabulous off-campus session at Metricon Stadium for the Senior Boys AFL squad with a tour of the area. Royce is coaching the Year 9 Boys Touch team with much enthusiasm and hope of a top season. Finally, Damian offered to fill-in to assist the Year 10 Boys Touch team with warm-up and the umpiring of their Round 2 game.
Serenity Thake (Year 10) attended the National Training Centre championships at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, on 21 to 28 July. All nationally selected NTC Squads played a round of five days of games.
The hurling process that these under 17s went through was a combination of a five-day a week training programme with school work and weekly games in the Women's National Premier League. The country's best of the best are selected for a squad of 16 for the junior Matildas . To make it to each state squad is a tough process. The selection of 130 girls to make the Junior Matildas was every player's focus .
Congratulations to Serenity for representing as an NTC squad player at 15. She has managed both her school load and training to successfully be chosen at the Canberra Nationals from her Queensland NTC squad of 30 and selections.
