Staff vs Students Cricket Match: Conditions were difficult for the match played over two days on the northern sports field. Both teams seemed to sweat it up, in the hot subcontinent like temperatures.
The first innings was played with the senior students scoring an impressive 62 runs, with plenty of wickets taken along the way. Each batting pair had 12 balls to face and the batter was

Scores were level with a partnership to go. The game was not near over with the possibility of lost runs for the -5 rule. Fortunately for the teachers, Mr Evans and Mr Whysall stood their ground to ensure a 5 run win to the teachers.
SC Netball competition
The netball girls played absolutely phenomenally this week in the Sunshine Coast Netball competition on Monday night. The Falcons proved to be unstoppable with a convincing win over Suncoast Grammar with a score of 23-2. A crazy fun last quarter mixup of positions only went towards highlighting how diverse the
The Hawks game was a tough one, but their defence was strong and the attack amazing. Hawks defeated the Flinders team 26-9, with Eliza earning MVP for her agility in attack and tireless speed on the court. Overall, the win was definitely attributed to each and every player on and off court working so well together and supporting each other. These girls have shown how team spirit and commitment makes a netball team shine on the court.
The senior team had a fantastic first game for the season with a 14 all draw against St Teresa’s.
The girls are starting to find their rhythm and best combinations on
Senior Girls (Eagles)
GCC lost to Meridan 9-11.
Our Senior girls took on Meridan this week. We started off really well in the first half, showing some great skill and strong defence. Our second half was a little scrappy but we are still finding combinations that work on court. MVP this week goes to Kianne for her moves in the goal circle despite her protests about not being a shooter! We went down 11-9 but the effort and joy the girls all bring to the game is worth more than any win.
GCC defeated Chancellor 20-14
The Hawks team really stepped up against Chancellor and played exceptionally as a team, despite missing some key players. They won with a score of 20 to 14 with both attack and defence proving unstoppable, resulting in Ebony King coming away with MVPs this week. Thanks to Michelle Boroughs for stepping in this week to support the Hawks on court!
Junior Girls (Falcons)
GCC defeated Matthew Flinders 26-8. Netball this week saw the Falcons claim victory once again against Flinders, with a very convincing win 26 to 8! The Falcons attack was on point, and Lily Breen came away with MVP this week for showing great versatility in both defence and attacking positions.
