NSATIS Sport continues throughout a busy Term 3. 

The Girls Hockey finished their season with a 2-2 draw against visiting Launceston Grammar, whilst the Boys team won the NSATIS title defeating Grammar 3-1. The boys will host the SATIS Final against Guilford Young College on Wednesday 27 September at McKenna Park.  

The Boys and Girls Volleyball have had mixed results but continue to challenge teams across the competition. The Girls enter their final round match next week with a record of 1 and 3, with some narrow losses to Scotch Oakburn this week. The Boys teams sit third on the ladder with 4 wins and 2 losses.  

After finishing the regular season 4th on the ladder, the girls hosted Scotch Oakburn in a qualifying final on Wednesday, with a high-scoring affair taking place. At full-time the score was 4-4, sending the game to penalties, with the MRC team progressing on to the semi-final against Launceston Grammar winning the shootout 4-2.  

The Boys NSATIS Soccer team finished their season against St Patrick’s College last week. Although results did not go their way this year, coach Mr Johnstone highlighted the team gave a great effort throughout the season and it was great to introduce a number of younger students to the team, which is promising for future years.  

Other upcoming events to finish Term 3 include: 

NSATIS Swimming in Launceston on Tuesday 5 September 

SATIS Swimming in Hobart on Wednesday 13 September 

High-School Netball Championships in Ulverstone from 19 – 21 September 

College Basketball Championships in Hobart on 23/24 September 

Term 4 Sign-ups have opened up in the Harcombe Centre with the following events available to students: NSATIS Cricket (Year 9 – 12), Lawn Bowls (Year 7 – 10), High School Basketball Championships (Year 7 – 10) and Schools Triathlon Challenge (Year 7 – 12). Sign-ups for these events close in Week 8, and any questions can be directed to Mr Lutwyche in the Harcombe Centre office. 

Following strong performances at the recent NSATIS and All-Schools Cross Country Championships, congratulations to the following students who were awarded the champion team in the Girls U15 event and recognised at a recent assembly. Zahli Wescombe finished 2nd, Ineka Barnes 5th, and Maya Davies 14th, which was enough points to secure the team the titles. We also want to acknowledge the other team members from this age group in Arlie Howard, Maisie Quarrell and Sophie Holmstrom who also ran well on the day.
