Over the past five weekends the 1st XVIII have been competing in the CAS AFL competition with the students starting to find some good form of late. The season started with a disappointing loss to Knox who appeared more ready for the round 1 clash that would ultimately decide the winner of the CAS competition. Since then, the students have been building nicely with wins against Cranbrook by 50 points, Barker by 68 points, Aloys by 55 points and most recently Trinity by 86 points.
Some stand out performers for the season so far have been Louis Kitto, Max Murphy, Sam Stewart, Aodan Byrne, Freddy Hunt and Joel Burgess. The backline has been terrifically led by Finn Anderson and Will Gibson.
The season now changes into a combined competition where the top six schools from CAS and GPS will meet to crown the overall competition winner. With hard work and dedication I believe that the students can challenge for this title.
This week shapes as a huge game vs Knox where we can set up our run at the title. Good luck to all of the students involved. Go Waves!
