Football & Futsal success
Congratulations to the 14yrs futsal teams who recently competed in NSW Schools Regional Futsal Championships. The students had a fantastic day and for many it was their first time playing in a competition of this standard. The girls team did particularly well, undefeated through the pool stage and scoring an abundance of goals. The team went on to win the semi-final and had a narrow loss, following extra-time and a penalty shoot out in the grand-final. This team will now progress to the State Championships in August.
Last week the Emanuel football teams competed at the CDSSA Football Championships at Heffron Park. The students in the football program have developed a great sporting culture and played with skill and determination. All four Emanuel teams progressed to the semi-finals and two teams went on to win the championships. Well done to both of the senior teams for making the semi-finals and a special mention to Aiden Poswell, Hannah Kim and Eden Levit. The 15yrs girls team had a solid win over Pittwater House in the grand-final, Sienna Poswell and Gemma Odes combining to score the winning goal. The 16yrs boys team won in a thrilling match over Moriah after extra time and a penalty shoot, with outstanding performances by Coby New, Ethan Hirst, Leo Latter and Reece Carr.
Well done to Alena Lewy, Mariah Lewy and Amelie Trope who were selected in the CDSSA 15yrs Netball Team. This team had a successful campaign at the AICES championships, winning the competition for the first time.
The High School netball program has had a successful start to the term. The Emanuel Year 7-9 teams are currently playing in the weekly St Catherine’s competition and had a pleasing first week of the season. Good luck for the rest of the season.
The new Primary School netball program commenced last week for students in Year 3-6. This program is aimed for those students looking to enhance their netball skills and teams are currently being formed for inter-school matches to be held on Tuesday afternoons later in the term. It is also a great opportunity for students in Years 4-6 to prepare for the upcoming Term 3 Thursday compulsory inter-school sport.
