Secondary School Sports Overview

QGSSSA Cross Country Championship 2021

On Saturday 15th May, over 80 St Hilda’s girls, ranging from Years 7-12 headed up to Rivermount College in Yatala for the annual QGSSSA Cross Country Carnival. Although this year was a little different to previous years with a rainy forecast scheduled the week prior, the smiles on all the girls faces as they crossed the finish line and the cheering from the side of the track did not change, even when completely covered in mud!! I spoke to a couple of the girls at the end of the day, and they said to me, “This was by far the best QG yet, I never knew running in the mud could be so much fun!”.

To me, that just goes to show the enthusiasm, School spirit and determination each and every competitor had on the day, regardless of their position at the finish line. A special thank you must go to our amazing coaches, Sharon, Teresa and Josh who have helped each girl either improve her fitness, form or even her love and passion for running throughout this season.

Without your constant guidance, support and motivation, the success we have had this year would not have been possible. Another important mention must also go to Mrs West for joining us at all the lead up meets and the competition on Saturday to make sure everyone was excited, organized and on the start line at the right time. Congratulations to all runners on Saturday, your efforts as you ran up each hill and through every muddy patch are to be both commended and appreciated! Well done, girls.

TEAM OPPOSITION RESULT MVP MOST IMPROVED
Open SOM HSE DRAW 3-3 Isabel Lee Samantha Douglas
Intermediates SOM HSE WIN 3-0 Fern Deshon Natalie O’Grady
Juniors SOM HSE LOSS 14-0 Nina Deshon Maya McGowan

A massive congratulations must go to all our football girls. The Juniors giving new things a go, with Lili Rogers attempting goalkeeper for the very first time with an amazing dropkick.

The Intermediates smashing out goals from the first whistle, setting themselves up for an amazing win of three nil despite the fact they only had half a game. Our Opens didn’t disappoint either. Executing an extremely impressive penalty goal was Issy Lee who led the team to a draw of 3/3 in the last five minutes.

This could not have happened without the help of Fern Deshon who rose to the occasion coming from the Intermediates team with teammates, Ella Uyede and Natalie O’Grady, to score two outstanding goals. This is the Opens first victory. Congratulations girls and coaches, it’s only upwards from here!
