Sport Fixture versus All Saints, Friday 21 April

Yukimaro Li- Tennis

Yukimaro continues to improve his ranking, playing in the 2017 Horizon Accounting 87th Toowoomba Easter Gold Cup (platinum). He went up to the quarter finals of the main draw, starting from the qualifying draw, beating the 21 year old 4th seed (Australian ranking 47th, ATP point holder) in the round of 16. He also made the final in the doubles winning against some strong and older players. With this result, his ranking will jump up next month.

Holiday Cross Country Practices

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.00-8.15am meeting at the Track. The APS Carnival will be Tuesday, 16 May at Runaway Bay (week 5).

Students Club Achievements in Sport

Parents and students are encouraged to send details of students’ club sporting achievements to the Sports Department for recognition in the Somerset Times. With hundreds of students competing in many sports for many clubs, it is impossible for the College to keep track if they are not school-based achievements. Please note, the Somerset Colours Awards are given only for school-based sports.

Somerset Sport Policy

All policies and procedures are outlined in the Senior School Sport page of Schoolbox), under “Sport Policy and Dates”. All students and parents are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these.
