Sports Report – ISA Summer Round 7
Saturday February 2 heralded a history-making day for the College. The very first competition basketball games were played in the new multipurpose hall.
There was a real sense of nervous excitement for the players and all spectators and students who came to watch were suitably impressed.
The first match of the day was the Chev Girls 1sts v Oakhill.
The game was preceded by a few formalities and welcomes with Project Manager Peter Eustace cutting the ribbon to open proceedings. The official opening of the new MPH will take place later this year on Sacred Heart Day.
The Chev girls opened the scoring with Summer Lewis being the first ever point scorer. Summer went on to have a great match and was well supported by Georgie Mitchell and Olivia Daley.
The girls were always in front but could not gain a big lead over a very enthusiastic opposition team. The final winning margin ended up being 10 points.
Next up on court were the 2nds girls who also ended up with a victory in a low scoring game. Some wise words from Assistant Coach Hargreaves put the Girls on the right track and Sophie Irvine dominated on the scoreboard.
The 17A Boys had a close contest against top-of-the-table Oakhill and managed to hang on to a lead to get home by 4 points. Great to see Jonah Elias back on court and Liam Clunn also played well.
The Boys 1sts played the final match of the day on the new court and began the new year very impressively.
Eddie Bradman was the first scorer in this game, well supported by Zack Burke, Jarrod Cook and Spencer Reed.
The other basketball matches were played at school over in the Ched.
The Junior Girls commenced the day against Blue Mountains and both teams had good wins.
For the A team Sienna Rossi and Sarah Bull went well and Olivia Hovey and Tea Tamehana top scored for the B team.
In the boys matches all games were close.
The 13s ended up in front by 9 with Tyson McClelland and Curtis Boese netting their shots.
The 14s ended ahead by 6, thanks mainly to Charlie Philp and Matt Butcher.
The 15s was the closest match of the day with Chev scraping home on the whistle by 1 point. Warwick Preston and Oliver Kingwill were the two main scorers in a nail-biter.
So a great start to the new year for the Chev basketball teams at home who were all winners.
In other sports played on Saturday, the Cricket at Chev was unfortunately drizzle affected with wet conditions preventing any play.
The 2nds travelled to Bathurst and performed quite well for their first game back together. Nick Colgan top scored and all took 3 wickets in an all-round effort.
The Senior Softballers travelled to St Paul’s and came up against a very accurate and fast pitcher.
Eryn Rhynehart batted and Clare Rhodes pitched well for the Chev 2nds Girls.
The Touch Football Girls at Macquarie Uni played in soggy conditions with mixed results.
All in all a good start back to the ISA season. Everyone’s a little rusty and fitness levels need a few more weeks of work.
We look forward to the games on Saturday 9, with most teams playing at home.
