Cricket

If anyone deserves a chance at the 'Big Leagues', its 2-metre Tom Pinson! Tom's dedication to training has earned him a rightful spot in the Futures League, the Australian national second XI cricket competition run by Cricket Australia. Tom heads to Canberra to join to ACT/Country side, captained by Trent Copeland. Best of luck Tom - you've earned you're chance!

Athletics

14yo Kai Hammond continues his incredible winning streak, this time taking out first place at the NSW All Schools Athletics Meet in a ridiculous time of 9:12mins. This followed by a win for Emma Blanch in the 3km Race Walk! Congratulations also to Annika Durante, who brought home Silver in the 800m Final at the same meet. We are so proud of all of you!

Eloise Wellings keeps her eyes on the Commonwealth Games prize as she travelled to Melbourne last week for a hit out in the Melbourne Half Marathon. Wellings ran into 3rd behind best mate and training partner Jess Trengrove in a very respectable time of 72:23mins. Great work Elzy!  Special mention to Alia Karaman, who completed th Melbourne Marathon in a PB time of 3:12hrs. This after notching up her previous marathon PB time of 3:15hrs at the Gold Coast Marathon in July! Awesome. 

Meanwhile, our juniors Alexia Kalamvokis and Sienna Alderson had a good hot crack at the SHARKS 10 running festival, bringing home 2nd and 3rd palce respectively in the 3km event. Awesome!
