Director of Sport | Mr Damian Wright
Many thanks to all the boys who made the effort to support the 1st XI and the 1st VI at the respective fixtures of Cricket and Volleyball on the weekend.
The Campbell Centre witnessed good crowd numbers and the Terrace team stepped up their performance, taking the game to BSHS and easily recorded their most dominant victory of the season so far to currently be sitting 3 and 0. This weekend the Red and Black will face their toughest assignment of the season when they face Churchie in what will most likely be the toughest game of the year. It would be outstanding if the boys who were present in the Campbell Centre on Saturday also found time this weekend to support the team at Churchie. Your support makes the world of difference.
Good numbers of boys were also present supporting the 1st XI at Tennyson to witness the team perform strongly with a bonus point victory over BSHS. Again, this result was based upon an overall team performance with all boys contributing. Terrace scored a good total of 269 and then defended stoutly to restrict the visitors to 176 in their 50 overs.
The College Age Swimming championships were completed on Saturday evening at Centenary Pool with significant numbers of boys in attendance. Boys competed in numerous events to record their best results across numerous strokes. Many thanks to the Swimming Support Group who worked tirelessly on Friday morning and Saturday evening supporting the program and the boys – your efforts are truly appreciated.
The rowers were met by hot conditions on Saturday at Wyaralong and the racing was very competitive for all year levels. The 1st VIII came home fourth in both races, not that far off the pace for the day and many crews recorded strong placings in all the races.
Please keep the following dates available to support the boys in the following championship events:
Junior Head of the River Saturday 24 February | Wyaralong
Senior Head of the River Saturday 10 March | Wyaralong
GPS Junior and Senior Swimming Championships Friday 2 March | Chandler
This weekend’s sporting activities for Cricket and Volleyball will be away at Churchie. Rowing will again be at Wyaralong with BGS hosting and the Swimming program will engage in the Gregory Terrace hosted Swimming meet at Centenary Pool on Friday evening. A reminder that those cricket teams playing at Tennyson this weekend will have their team photo taken for the Yearbook. Check the app for photo times.
I would like to wish every boy all the best of fortune for the weekend – compete to the best of your ability.
