The 7As breezed through Round 6 still undefeated, with a convincing match win against Somerville House, with some impressive over-head serving seen from Charne and Amelia in particular.  All teams gave a strong performance, with some tight losses and hard fought for wins, as seen in the two hour Opens match, where the girls battled it out for all five sets.  All teams look forward to Round 7 next Saturday against Brisbane State High School.

The 7As continue their winning streak through Saturday’s fixture against Brisbane State High School – it seems that their tactics and Mel’s coaching are unrivalled by all in the league. The Senior Bs also came home with a convincing win, with some impressive serves from Summer and a tricky backwards set pulled off by Ashley. Remi, libero of the Opens team, performed very well against the powerful serves of the opposition, and was seen diving for every missed ball. All teams look forward to the final home game of the season next Saturday, against St Margaret’s.

Rowing Regatta 5

Regatta 5 was the final regatta before The Head of The River and was definitely another week of promising results. The first win of the day was the Year 8 4ths, followed by the Year 8 3rds and then 2nds. This is a massive effort from the Year 8s as they have settled so well into this year and have become very comfortable with racing no matter the conditions. Then in the Year 9 division, the 3rds came away with a win, a very tough competition but they are working harder each week! Then onto our mighty Year 10s, the 5ths, 4ths, 3rds and 2nds all came away with wins in the first round which is an outstanding achievement again! Then moving onto the open divisions, the 3rds came away with a win in the first round. We definitely have a strong crews going into the Head of the River and can’t wait to see how we go as a school!
