The Weekly Wrap
Term 2 | Tennis Wrap
The Terrace Tennis season of 2017 was completed on Saturday with an excellent day of tennis against Toowoomba Grammar School. The program, for the sixth occasion this year, had a winning day against the opposition. The sportsmanship on display was a credit to all involved.
The Terrace Tennis program caters for all abilities and the product of 2017 was definitely an improvement from the year before and we hope to continue this improvement in 2018. The aim is to continue to provide opportunities for those who either wish to play socially with their mates like this year’s 11D team in a participation program or to cater for those striving to be the best they can in the performance side of the program. Tennis is a game for all and a game for life.
Our traditional tennis end of season break-up BBQ, and trophy presentation at AMBI was held at the completion of the round on Saturday afternoon. This social event was well supported by the families involved with over 140 people in attendance. The award winners were for the following:
Round 8 Results
1st XV Rugby Program
Congratulations to Harry Wilson, Ryan Gassman, Hoani Ford-Stevens, Will Kirk, Byron Ralston, Ethan Dobbins, Levi White, Will Roach, Johnson Oyelodi and Tyrone Metusela-Suapaia on their selection in one of the three GPS teams to compete at the upcoming Qld Schoolboy trials during the mid-year break.
Term 2 A/B Program
Congratulations to all players and coaches involved in our Term 2 A/B program. It was pleasing to see a number of solid performances by our A/B squads against IGS last weekend. I am confident that our common approach to our core skill development, terminology and patterns of play across all age groups over the last nine weeks will lay a solid foundation for the boys to build from heading into the GPS competition.

It’s a been a great season for Terrace Football, with the last games for all teams (except the 1st XI), producing a mixed bag of results on the weekend.
From the 5As through to the 1st XI, the teams that made the trip to Toowoomba Grammar School showed great respect and spirit both in victory and in defeat.
The 1st XI have achieved a remarkable improvement on previous years, our lads showing courage in every game. This was attributed to the leadership of captain Sam Lang, and Vice-Captains Max Mikkola and Darcy McCluskey. These three boys gave their all, both on and off the field, in their final year. I also wish the other Year 12 boys James Leech, Oscar Sullivan and Liam Lynch all the best. Thank you all for the great service to the Terrace Football Community. Good luck in your final game against BBC in Toowong on Friday at 3.30pm. All students are encouraged to attend and support the lads.
Buses have been arranged for the final 1st XI game at BBC and we ask as many of you to attend and send off the Year 12 players in style. I look forward to seeing you all there.
A special thank you goes to the Terrace 4th XI. These lads have been together for the past four years and have lost only one game in that time. They have been there week-in and week out playing football, attending training and supporting the 1st XI whenever they can. They have been led by three outstanding lads in James Freemantle, Tom Lawrence and Liam O’Donnell. On the weekend, these and a few others helped the 3rds and 2nds by playing three games in a row. The 2nds game was one of the proudest moments in Terrace Football history that I have experienced. The six boys that made it to Toowoomba and the others that helped almost got up with a win but through fatigue they fought for a 1-1 draw.
In another great story, the 7Hs were undefeated coming into Saturday’s round against Nudgee. They were playing a team three levels above them and at 1-0 down, with seconds to play, it looked like their perfect season was slipping away. One of the boys slotted a screamer from outside the box and the game ended in a 1-1 draw. The Terrace and Nudgee coaches decided a penalty shoot-out was an appropriate way to decide the winner. The mighty Terrace 7H boys took it out 3-2. Well done.
The 2017 season has ended very well for Terrace. Feedback has been positive and we will continue to improve the program going forward.
Final thanks go to: The Terrace Football Support Group, coaches and volunteers a who have all helped immensely in making the boys’ experience playing ‘the world game’ so enjoyable. Thank you to Mr Damian Wright, Director of Sport, for his support of the program, and to Miss Georgia Power, Sports administrator, and Mr Brendan McGrath, Sports activities co-ordinator.
See you next season.
