Both the Junior and Open teams fought hard at Saturday’s games against Ipswich Girls’ Grammar. In their first game, the Junior team managed to get many opportunities in the attacking circle. A big thank you to Olivia for volunteering to be goalie and saving many hard goals! The Open girls also managed to get into the attacking circle which resulted in 2 very good goals. We are very proud of how well both teams have played and the improvement shown by each player.

The weekend saw the last games for both the Opens and Junior hockey teams at different venues. We are confident that the Juniors played their best throughout their game. The Open’s game was a lot of fun and, while not resulting in a win, we managed to score a goal and stayed positive until the final whistle. Both teams have displayed determination and positivity throughout the season.

The last round of games was really competitive and successful with our 7A, 7B, 9B, 10A and Senior A teams winning their games. The Opens had a really close game losing by only 6 goals, the closest margin they have had in 5 years against St Aidan’s. We are both so proud of all the girls this season and wish all the girls the best for next year. We look forward to seeing the sport flourish and continue to grow.

Round 5 saw the girls heading up to Brisbane for a battle against St Peters. The weather was more than perfect for the girls to go out and give it their best go. While colds and injuries wiped out a few players, Year 7 player Dayna Whiteley-Hall in the Opens team came away with an impressive win. The Opens and Senior ’s gave it their best shot with Lucia McCarthy playing a nail-biting set to win in the tie-breaker. As this round marked the halfway point in the season, it will be exciting to see how the girls will go in the coming weeks.

2018 QGSSSA Athletics
St Hilda’s had an exciting year in Cross Country, and Track & Field is shaping up to be just as good.
I started in the role of Director of Cross-Country and Athletics at the beginning of this school year and it has been genuinely hectic. There is a great buzz, particularly in the Junior and Middle Schools and I can feel the culture growing day-by-day.
St Hilda’s took out the coveted Andrews Cup Athletics for the 5th straight year and, whilst we had some problems in the relays, we were ultimately stronger than past years in the individual track events. We maintained our results in the field events, and this is an area where we can certainly improve in the future. Our School placed top three in 86 of the 149 events on offer.
We have been working on providing more coaches for more events to prepare the girls well for the QGSSSA Athletics competition on Monday 15th October. Some of our coaches have competed for Australia at World Junior (U20) Championships, and have coached multiple athletes to World Youth, World Junior, World Dwarf, World Down Syndrome, World Special Olympics, Commonwealth Youth, Paralympics, and World Para Athletics competitions.
I have coached an Olympic, World and Commonwealth Champion and have been a Team Coach or Team Manager on Australian teams from 2008 to 2014. This year I have been asked to travel to the Youth Olympic Games in Argentina as a Team Coach and I am thrilled. However, this means I will actually miss out on our QGSSSA competition as I depart on September 29th, and don’t return to Australia until Friday 19th Oct. Whilst I am terribly excited to be involved with the Australian Youth Olympic team, I will definitely miss the buzz, the noise, and the business of the QG Athletics. My husband Peter Hannan will be the Head Coach on the day and all our coaches will be in attendance.
I have been working hard on the scheduling of all training sessions, the availability of all our coaches and the overall preparation of our team. We are offering holiday training sessions at Griffith University Athletics track, and urge all possible team members to continue training throughout the two week, so they give themselves the best possible chance of being selected in the team, and the best possible chance of competing to the best of their ability on the day of QG. I will also provide sample training sessions and relevant information for all girls who may be away, especially our boarders who have been very committed for the past few months. I think our parents would be feeling the enthusiasm of the girls, and we are certainly aware of their desire to try new events and improve their skills. One day we had sixteen girls doing hurdles! Just last Friday evening two of those girls competed in Steeplechase at the first day of the South Coast trials.
A genuine thank you to all of the parents doing those early morning wake-ups and drives to training. A genuine thank you as well to all the Boarding House mothers who support our committed girls to get to training, get breakfast and get to school on time each day.
Director of Cross Country and Athletics – Mrs Sharon Hannan

Well done to the following girls for making the trek (many after also competing at the final round of competition for winter fixtures) up to Brisbane and giving their all on the track and in the field.

2018 Australian Gymnastics Classic Competition Friday 14 September
Congratulations to Jessica Cleverly who had a really good competition at the Australian Classic on Friday. It was her very first competition at a Level 9 standard. She placed 2nd on Vault and 10th overall. This time last year she was competing at Level 6 – it just goes to show what can be achieved with lots of hard work! Well done, Jess!
2018 St Hilda’s Rowing a Season of Success
This year was our most successful year to date with 56 wins, twenty-four 2nd placings and fifteen 3rd placings across the 2018 season. It was wonderful to see so many supporters at the Head of the River event on Saturday 1 September where our school spirit was alive and well. A BIG thank you to our Director of Rowing Adam Harrison and all of our 2018 coaching team. To our RSG, thank you again for giving up countless hours ensuring that the girls are well looked after and fed! A great platform to build on for the 2019 season.
From the Rowing Captains:
The 2018 rowing season has been extraordinary, to say the least. In comparison to previous seasons, there were more wins than ever before. Head of River was held on the September 1 out at Wyaralong Dam. On the day some crews struggled with the challenging winds, but overall the regatta was very successful winning the Year 10 age group, as well as ending with second place in the Year 8 and Year 9 levels. While the senior crews were unable to get on the podium this year, their determination and love for the sport was an inspiration for everyone at the sheds, and all the upcoming rowers look up to them.
Overall, as a school, we came third in the Aggregate Cup and second in the percentage cup for 2018. This is a massive improvement and a great accomplishment for Adam Harrison and all the coaches as last year we came sixth in aggregate and third in percentage. We are beyond happy with the effort, love and determination that the girls have put in this year. The early mornings, the countless ergs and the many bus trips are what enabled us to achieve such amazing results. Rowing is a sport that requires a whole lot of energy and patience and it showed. Every single rower who got out on the water at HOR was ready and willing to give it their all.
While it is the girls who make up this sport, their parents and the support we get from everyone in rowing is what really helped us through the season. To Adam, the coaches, breakfast mums and the Rowing Support Group: although we don’t say it enough, the work you do for us is endlessly appreciated and thank you so much! We hope you all enjoyed the season as much as we did and we hope to be able to come back and watch Head of the River next year and hopefully see that placing one higher!
Charlee Mitchell, Grace MacLeod, Amelia Connolly
