On Saturday 13 May a group of 30 students, coaches and managers headed to Narrabeen, New South Wales to represent the WA Christian Schools at the National Christian Schools Games.
This event is held every two years and students from Year Seven to 12 are eligible to be selected for this event.
This year, WA was represented in the U15 Girls Basketball, U15 Girls Netball and Open Girls Netball competitions. Students from Swan CC, Mundaring CC, Dale CS and Rehoboth CC were selected in these teams. The competition allowed our students to compete at a higher level and our girls adjusted to the challenge well. Although we didn’t bring home any medals, our girls were commended for their ‘never give up’ attitude, their sportsmanship and their respectful manner on the court.
Congratulations to our team MVP’s – Asher C(Basketball – Dale CS), Morgan S (Open Netball – Swan CC) and Cassie N (U15 Netball - Swan CC). Alana T (Mundaring CC), Jaz M(Swan CC) and Holly K (Swan CC) who received coaches awards for their team.
A BIG thank you to our team coaches and managers – Mr Croot, Mrs Styles, Miss Sutton, Mrs Mirco, Mrs Sackich, Mr and Mrs Cowie - who spent many hours training the girls in the lead up to the games. Thank you also to the parents who travelled over to support our teams.
The next National Christian Schools Games will be held on the Gold Coast in 2019.
