SCISSA Rugby 7s – Intermediate Boys:
GCCs Rugby 7s team has been finding success every week so far in the SCISSA competition. Games have been held alternatively between Peregian fields and Beerwah Bulldogs Grounds. Improvement has been evident, given that the boys are now winning games vs the same teams that they lost against during the earlier rounds. St Andrews seems to be the team to beat and if our boys attend training sessions, there should be a good chance to knock them off before the end of the term.

Sunshine Coast Netball – Junior Girls Semi Final
The junior girls netball team known as the ‘Falcons’ played their semi final against Unity College this week. The game was a tight one with Unity being up by one point at the end of the first and second quarters. Unity had a surge in the third quarter taking the lead by five. The Falcons then had an amazing last quarter, taking back the five points to end the game with a tie. This led into extra time with the teams then having to play an additional 10 minutes. Falcons gave it all they had, but at the end of the extra time the teams were still in a draw. This then led to a gruelling double extra time where the game would not stop until one of the teams was ahead by two points. The double extra time went for about 10 minutes more before Unity ended up taking the lead and winning. The girls coach, Tegan Gisler, said that although it wasn’t the result we wanted, the girls played an unbelievable game and she was very proud of their efforts. They are an awesome team with a good Netball future ahead of them. MVP for the game was Adelie Tomokino. Adelie played an amazing game and got so many intercepts we lost count.
Aussie Rules Football ‘Sunshine Coast Schools Cup’
Senior Boys Vs St Andrews AC
The Senior AFL team (male) made the final of the 2018 Tribal Sport AFL Queensland Sunshine Coast Schools Cup. In a physical battle with St Andrews, the boys worked hard and never took a backward step, but just couldn’t consistently put enough goals on the board to keep up with St Andrews. Despite making the final, due to other schools not nominating, this was a great experience for the team and hopefully gave us a good indication of the standard we need to reach.
Soccer ‘Bill Turner Cup’
We had 2 teams play in the Under 15 Football (Soccer) Bill Turner Cup. This is a highly prestigious tournament and is played all across QLD and NSW. We came across some very good teams with Sunshine Coast schools regularly winning through to the finals stage of the tournament. This year, the girls finished 4th, and the boys finished 5th at the Sunshine Coast division. This is the first time in my three years coaching at this level that GCC has not finished last! A great improvement and hopefully a sign of things to come!
Kawana Cup ‘Touch Football’
The GCC Junior Touch boys team has continued to compete throughout the term in the Kawana Cup competition. Week 6, they notched up their first victory vs Chancellor Park. After some tough losses earlier this term, this success is a clear indicator that the boys are piecing it together and are now very competitive. This improved form will be beneficial going into the SCISSA competition in Term 3.
Friday Middle School Sport
Students have been participating in mostly traditional sports during the middle school sports program in Term 2. GCC sports teams have also utilised this time to train for upcoming competitions and Touch Football trials have been held in the lead up to competition that commences in Term 3. These teams will continue to train for the remainder of this term.

Trish Buckley Volleyball Finals
We had some fantastic results over the weekend at the Trish Buckley Regional Volleyball titles. The combined scores from the Senior Trish Buckley tournament and Junior Trish Buckley tournament resulted in GCC finishing in the top three out of 11 schools for the first time in four years of GCC competing at the regional event. In a competition where more than 80 teams competed across six Friday nights, this is an incredible effort and testament to the hard work put into our volleyball program by the HPE department. We are now officially number three on the Sunshine Coast for volleyball.
Here are the individual GCC team results for the tournament:
Year 10 Boys – Silver medalists
Year 10 girls – Bronze medalists
Year 9 boys – 5th
Year 9 girls – 4th
Year 8 boys – 4th
Year 8 girls – 4th
Year 7 boys – Gold medalists
Year 7 girls – Bronze medalists
Our Year 10 and Year 9 teams are heading off to the state titles this weekend in Toowoomba. We wish them all the best.
