CAS Swimming and Diving

Congratulations to our swimming and diving squads for their great efforts last Thursday. Waverley came in 5th and were not far off St Aloysius in 4th and have certainly closed the gap.

Some of the stand-out performances of the evening were Stuart Swinburn, Erwan Le Pechoux, Peter Cassimatis, Lucas Young and Bailey Habler. Other notable mentions include Henry Standfield and Blair Ryan for their performances as well. Our Junior age groups were excellent and also our captain and vice-captain Adam Lawther and Walter Ozeryiansky led the squad very well.

Well-done to Ms Stephanie Floyd, Mr Tony Moore, Mr Stephen Badger and Mr David Parnell for their coaching efforts. We must also acknowledge the special efforts of Mrs Kath Knowles and Mitchell Rawson for their work with the diving team. We had a number of divers qualify for the CIS competition and this is a great reward for the coaches’ efforts.

Lewis Thompson – going for Gold!

Lewis did himself, his family, his school and State very proud at the Australian Junior Athletics Championships 2016 in Perth.

His performances and results are as follows:

GOLD – 1st Place in U17 Mens Discus Throw with 52.16m, a PB of 3.42m.

4th Place in U17 Mens Shot Put with 14.89m.

8th Place in U20 Mens Discus Throw with 44.73m, a PB of 5m.

Making the final of the U20 Mens Discus Throw was incredible, as he was up against athletes 2 and 3 years older!

Winter Training

This week saw the start of winter training for Cross Country, Rugby, Football, Tennis and AFL. All students have trials in these sports this Saturday, including those on cadet camp. Failure to attend these trials will result in selection in lower grades. As the weather has been challenging for some of this week can I please remind all parents and students to check the wet weather line or use the Skoolbag App in regards to any potential cancellations due to weather. Please also do not just assume matches are cancelled as it is raining at home. Unless notified that matches are cancelled then those games are still on.

Students need to also make sure they have the appropriate equipment and apparel for these sports. All Rugby, Football and AFL players are encouraged to wear mouth-guards and use head-gear where appropriate. All Football players must have shin-pads for training and games please. For Saturday matches incorrect attire will result in that player being unable to take the field. This Saturday’s trials are selection trials for games to be played against Newington on April 2nd. No teams will be final, however, and all students are encouraged to strive for better selection through performances at training and in games.

Good luck to all teams trialing this weekend and ‘Go the Waves!’
