On Friday the 18th of June, the Year 6 and Year 7 Sapsasa netball knock-out teams braved the cold and rain and had a great day of competition. Our games were played at Glen Osmond Primary, with their two outdoor courts providing a great setting for both teams to play on the same day.
The first Year 7 game against Glen Osmond Primary School saw us win by a strong margin, with all girls playing their role on court and helping the team to our victory. The first Year 6 game for the day was against Highgate Primary School, and they were a very strong team. All of the girls fought right until the end of the match and gave it their all, but unfortunately, we couldn’t get the victory.
The second Year 7 game against Highgate saw a very close and physical match-up all over the court, with our girls fighting for every ball and working until the final whistle. They just missed out on two wins. The second game for the Year 6’s was against Glen Osmond Primary School they displayed great skill and endeavour and had a strong final win for the day.
Congratulations to all girls that were involved in the team on a successful and enjoyable day.
A further congratulations to Olivia D (year 7) and Chelsea B (year 6) who were selected into the City South Netball District team.

On Fridy of Week 6 our Sapsasa Boys Soccer team competed at St Peter's College in a day carnival against St Peter's, Cabra Dominican College and Woodend Primary. The boys fought hard all day against some tough competition and unfortunately couldn't come away with a win. The highlight was their last game against Woodend with Mitcham coming together to create plenty of chances to score and putting one to the back of the net. Well done boys for continuing to compete hard all day and thankyou to David Wiltshire for coaching.
Some of our students have been representing our district at the various sporting carnivals this term. Congratulations to Chelsea B and Olivia D for playing in the Year 6 and Year 7 Netball teams and to Jackson B and Jonny O in the Year 6 Football team.
