9/10 Girls Volleyball – Friday 7 May
Coach: Miss Morgan
Players: Mayah Amosa, Zoe Brown, Lahni Hall, Ava Jadric, Katie Hawke, Georgia Ryman, Charlotte Cowley, Jessica Pine, Nicole Gray.
The girls came up against some strong competitors with a lot of Volleyball experience. It was great to see the SFX girls work together as a team, coming up with some great plays over the net. Throughout the day the girls won some games and lost some, but it was awesome to see them learning and improving as a unit. The coach was extremely proud as the team didn’t drop their heads against the tougher teams and rose to the challenge! Well done girls – thank you for a great day out!
College Boys AFL – Thursday 13 May
Coach: Mr Nolan
Players: Ky Marriott, Maxwell Shadbolt, Joven May, Jesse Brooks, Geordan Whitton, Jye Smith, Zac Rukavina, Jye Rushton, George Wood, Callam Thomas, Jack Forrest, Jaiken Bell, Malual Aleer, David White, Ryan Ulrich, Angus Chiswell, Jake Tammaro, Harry Ryan-Baker, Tom Itter, Josh Day, Alex Monaghan.
The College Boys AFL day was a small event with only two games being played. The boys came up against Mackillop College and Daramalan College. With minimal time in between games, it was a tough slog – the boys won one game but lost the other. The team played with great enthusiasm and spirit on the day and demonstrated fair play and sportsmanship. It was great to see the boys representing SFX with such pride – thank you for a great day gentleman!
College Girls AFL – Tuesday 18 May

Senior Coach: Eliza Roberts
The girls had a big day playing with only 16 a side and no subs. They had a great start in their game against Erindale College coming away with a 47- 6 win! The team then faced a more competitive Dickson College, and after leading at half time Dickson came back to level the scores with an 18 all draw. The third round saw the team come up against a very strong Lake Ginninderra side and unfortunately the odds were not in our favour here. A friendly final saw the team play Erindale a second time wining 66-14 to finish up 3rd overall. A massive effort to all the girls for playing with no subs. It was also wonderful to see students who hadn’t played much in the past giving it a go! Well done ladies! A big thank you to Eliza who helped coach the girls on the day – it was great to have you on board.
