Somerset College entered a Mixed Touch Football team in the 2022 South East Queensland Schools Beach Gala Day. Our Somerset Spartan team consisted of students from Years 8 to 12. It was a day our Spartans could take on some of the best touch athletes in Queensland whilst having fun on the beautiful golden sands of Kirra's beach.

Our Spartans, after dropping their first game, re-couped and went on to winning the five remaining games of the day which included defeating the team that got the win earlier. They demonstrated some high-quality touch football prowess throughout the tournament which at times had the crowd on their feet.

One great aspect which was admired by the Queensland officials, was the Spartans willingness to not give up. They continued to challenge and raise their skill levels throughout the day.

All players are to be congratulated for their efforts – well done!
