School Sport Shout Outs!
*Congratulations to Issy Hallinan who recently competed in the South Coast U12 Softball team at the State Championships and was also named one of the Team Captains. Issy’s team had a very competitive tournament, placing 3rd overall and narrowly missing the final. Issy herself had a huge tournament with home runs, big hits, catches and outs at first. Congratulations Issy!
Whilst COVID 19 disturbed our season of Athletics, this did not stop the Roo Pen from giving the QGSSSA 2020 Athletics Carnival their best shot. The day of the carnival saw countless athletes lace up their spikes and hit the track and field. From the start of the day, we saw girls make courageous leaps, quite literally in the hurdle events! A special shout out to Jemima Robertson who had never competed in hurdles before and ran a remarkable race. There were also countless girls who filled in for races and field events. A special thank you to our coaches and the astounding effort they put in this year which allowed for all athletes to be extremely prepared on the day. The coaches’ efforts to encourage athletes and ensure the day ran seamlessly is something we, along with all the girls, are so grateful for. Overall, the countless number of trainings the athletes attended meant the development of great talent and some notable performances on the day of the event. Congratulations to all the athletes who ran, jumped, and threw with all their strength. You well and truly performed like champions! We achieved several high places on the day. The girls who achieved Top 3 in events are listed below:
Athletics Captains – Maeve Dougherty and Ali Rutherford

Spirits were high over the weekend as the girls competed in the QGSSSA Badminton competition. Each game was played with high enthusiasm and with endless support from other teams on the day. Although not all teams came home with a 1st place, it was evident that the girls left it all on the court (especially our Year 10Cs who placed 7th after they had to forfeit following seed 1 due to a last-minute illness of one of their players). It was a very short season of Badminton but all girls competing were dedicated and happy to be playing again. Emma and I competed in our last ever QG Badminton competition at Ipswich Girls Grammar and, to say the least, it was a day to remember. It was full of laughs and enjoyment, and we hope as captains that the girls will continue to participate in this extremely fun sport and make the most of it as the years go on.
Badminton Captains – Emma Raby & Lizzie Slater
QLD All Schools Touch 2020
The 2020 QLD All Schools Touch Tournament was held over the weekend and St Hilda’s entered their Open team. Whilst the team had limited preparation for the tournament, they came together well and finished the carnival with 3 losses, 1 draw and 3 wins. Our player of the tournament was Holly Bertwistle, who had a strong hand in many of the team tries. Most consistent was Kayla McMah who led the team with patience, control and used her playing experience to help direct both attack and defense. The most improved player was Zoe Bennett. It is Zoe’s first year in the Opens team and although she missed out on the regular QG season, Zoe stepped up to the challenge at All Schools and slotted in with the team perfectly.
|Game 1 – Friday||St Margaret Mary||Loss 8-3|
|Game 2 – Friday||Unity College||Loss 5-1|
|Game 3 – Friday||Carmel College||Draw 2-2|
|Game 4 – Saturday||Ormeau Woods SHS||Win 7-0|
|Game 5 – Saturday||Trinity (Beenleigh)||Win 6-2|
|Game 6 – Saturday||Fairholme College||Loss 6-2|
|Game 7 – Saturday||Somerville House||Win 3-1|
