GRAND FINAL WRAP UP
On Wednesday 7 September 2022 we had two Year 9 SACCSS teams play off in their respective Grand Finals.
Congratulations to you Year 9 Boys Volleyball team who won their Grand Final yesterday afternoon! The boys took control from the get-go and never gave Kolbe a sniff which was exciting to see.
Commiserations to our Year 9 Boys Soccer team who went down 3-2 against MacKillop. The boys clawed their way back into the game after conceding two early goals to draw level, but unfortunately were unable to capitalise on a few opportunities late in the game. The boys were obviously disappointed, but they should be proud for the way in which they held themselves.
On Monday September 12 our Year 9 Girls Soccer team came up against a formidable Salesian outfit in their Grand Final. The girls fought hard to stick with a slick Salesian team but were unfortunately they were unable to match Salesian’s intensity at the ball, going down 4-1.
On Tuesday September 13 our Senior Boys Basketball team played off in a Grand Final against St Monica’s at MSAC. The boys got off to a quick start, sinking the first 6 points and converting some turnovers. St Monica’s grinded their way back into the game with both teams trading point for point throughout the first half. This continued well into the second half, but St Monica’s were able to sink a few three pointers which gave them the ascendency and confidence.
Our boys were 6 points down in the last two and a half minutes of the game, but they didn’t drop their heads, narrowing the lead and drawing even with less then a minute to go. Sadly, we turned over the ball over late in the piece, handing St Monica’s the win. Our boys are to be commended for their professionalism, sportsmanship and overall character. They are a great bunch of students who have represented TCC with such pride and spirit. They are a true inspiration to our younger students, and we thank them for their commitment to our program, including the many afterschool trainings and coaching of our younger students.
A massive thank you to Mr Nicholls for his coaching, guidance and passionate leadership of this team.
