Strong Start to Term 2

Well done to all students, staff, coaches and parents/carers on a strong start to the Term 2 winter co-curricular season. The weather has been disruptive, however, students have demonstrated a good resilience and enthusiasm to want to represent Waverley last weekend. We did have some fixtures washed out including a full round of AFL but also had some strong performances in Debating, Football and Rugby across a number of age groups.

Team selections are still ongoing and we ask that parents/carers and students be patient with the coaches and staff. The weather and parent teacher interviews have meant we are still working to finalise teams.

Winter Co-curricular Leaders and 1sts Teams

Last Thursday we recognised our winter co-curricular leaders and 1sts teams. Congratulations to the students HERE.

Holiday Successes

We also had a number of staff, students and parents/carers sacrifice a lot of time and effort over the recent holidays to ensure Waverley students continue to be able to represent at the highest levels. A snap shot of some of these include:

  • AFL – holiday training and trials
  • Rugby – tournament and camp in Orange and won three out of four fixtures
  • Football – successful St Andrew’s Cup with only one narrow loss to the winners
  • Volleyball camp as well as Cooper Ryan and Guillien Dela Cueva representing Waverley at the Australian Beach Volleyball Schools Cup
  • Robbie Muir – Cadet ATA award in Tasmania
  • Aus Athletics titles in Adelaide – a number of students competing and making finals including Vaidas Levi 3rd in U15 Javelin and Evan Rowbotham 1st in 800m, 1500m and 3000m
  • National swimming titles – Ollie Moclair qualifying to trial for youth Olympics, Jack Kerves making a number of Breaststroke finals and relays as well as a number of other students representing the College at the highest levels
  • Ariki Wihongi being selected in the U13 New Zealand Māori  Rugby League side as well as the NSW Touch Merit side
  • Payton Tarau and Lior Barhaim selected in the NSW Oztag sides to take on QLD
  • James Peate competing last Friday night in the prestigious Lawrence Campbell oratory competition

Hopefully the weather will hold out for this weekend and good luck to all students and teams.

Australian Track & Field Championships

Whilst the majority of our students were enjoying some rest over the first week of holidays, 10 of Waverley’s finest Track and Field athletes travelled to Adelaide for the Australian Championships.

The culmination of a long and arduous season is a true test of every athlete’s mental and physical capacity. Waverley was well represented with 10 athletes spanning from the U13 to U20 age groups. Our boys competed over various disciplines with many resulting in personal bests or their highest placing at a national championship.

Highlights included a historic treble by Evan Rowbotham in winning the U15 800m, 1500m and 3000m events. Vaidas Levi secured a bronze medal in the U15 Javelin and George Lambousis narrowly missed a bronze medal by 0.01s in the U13 100m. Congratulations to all our other boys who represented NSW at the highest level.
