EISM CROSS COUNTRY WRAP UP
At the end of Term 3, our Cross Country Team headed off to Ruffey Lake Park, Templestowe.
Below is Mr Rees report:
"It was great to have a Cross-Country where the weather was fine –unlike the House Sports!
Our team ran "as a team" and represented their school with great commitment. Amongst the team effort, there were many outstanding individual efforts. Remembering that there were more than 100 runners in each event, our leading runners were:
Dean Van Waterbeem(2nd), Vaidehi Premkumar(5th), Kaja Clayton(3rd), George Tyurin (3rd), Jordan Le Blanc(6th), Tom Riley (5th), Morven Curr(5th), Tyler Freeland(6th) and Mia Worcester(8th).
Huntingtower finished third overall however, the most impressive performance of the day was that of our Girls team. For the first time Huntingtower did not take out the Aggregate Pennant in any of the age groups and yet they managed to win the Girls Aggregate Trophy. This was the result of a consistently strong performance in all the age groups by our girls- an amazing effort.
I would like to thank Leigh Parsons, Alex Neal, Anthony Wroe, Nick Hamer and Rodney Jones for their great support with the coaching of the team and their contribution on the day.
Further thanks to Jan Savage and Nic Green for helping with the preparation of the team."
Thank you Mr Rees for all your work with our Cross Country team.
A summation of the 2016 results are listed below:
TERM 4 SWIMMING
Last Wednesday, we held the inaugural HT – Whitefriars College Swimming Meet.Whitefriars is the current Associated Catholic Colleges Swimming Champions, so our winning EISM team was set to see if they could match another all boys school.(Keep in mind that we have about 300 boys to choose from to swim – Whitefriars has 1,200.) After a great afternoon of swimming, Whitefriars took home the Aden-Kierce shield.
This new shield for this new competition carries a significant inscription which reads:
The Aden-Kierce Shield
In recognition of and gratitude for the amazing dedication and contribution that Helen Aden and the late Fr. Noel Kierce have made to Swimming for their respective schools, Huntingtower and Whitefriars College.
The presentation of the shield was a very touching moment and an opportunity where we could offer our appreciation to Helen Aden for her many, many years of dedicated work to Huntingtower Swimming.Thank you, Helen, for always wanting the best for our swimmers.
The girls had the opportunity to make a start on their 2017 EISM campaign.We are looking forward to a Girls School coming in and partnering Whitefriars for this meet in 2017.
A huge "Thank you" also to Mr Wes Smith, Mr Josh Lean and Mr Shane Cotter (Whitefriars) for their amazing work with the preparation for the meet, and to the staff who came on the day to work on the meet jobs: Brendan Powell (Swim Coach) Mr Tony Hill, Mr Keith Clapp, Mr Daniel Borbely, Ms Talia Goddard, Mr Simon Hood, Mr Nic Green and Ms Ser-Lein Wan.
I'd like to also like to thank some parents who assisted before and during the meet:Mr Darrel Clark, Mrs Alison Clark and Ms Linley Ristic.It is not often that we have parent helpers for Sport in the Secondary School so I'm very appreciative of your time and work for the afternoon.
