Grand Final Results

It was an amazing scene at Nambour Christian College in Week 10. Incredibly GCC had seven teams playing off in Grand Finals over a possible eight divisions. There was a sea of maroon and green at the venue and this may have been intimidating for some of the opposition teams.

It was a huge accomplishment for our teams to make it this far and very pleasing to see that overall we managed to win five out of the seven Grand Finals that we competed in. More importantly however our students enjoyed the competition and handled the Grand Final pressure very well. Congratulation to our coaches this term and thank you to all parents for your continued support.

Grand Final results are as follows:

SC Netball competition
Round 4

The Falcons played an incredible game this week but were unfortunately defeated by Sunshine Sharkettes with a result of 14-16. The Falcon’s defence was impeccable and they were able to get it from the defence end to the attack end quickly, yet the opposition was strong also. Amyliah Harrison came away with MVP of the match for consistently breaking free from her defence to be an option to pass to throughout the game.

Round 5

The Falcons won against SJC Junior C with the score being 27-2. The Falcons pulled together as a great team this week, demonstrating how everyone on the court is of great value to the game. The MVP of the match was Sophie Gilmour as she was always an option to pass to and played extremely well in every position she had a go at.

Round 4

GCC defeated St Andrews 23-12.
What is better than just winning netball? To be told by both the umpires and the other team’s coach, that all the girls in the Hawks were outstanding and beautiful people on court! Their sportsmanship on court is to be commended and is one of the key reasons for their amazing success. This week the Hawks beat St Andrews 23-12, with Chelsea Johnson being awarded MVP for being the most versatile player, playing everything, everywhere, so incredibly well!

Round 5

An intense netball game was had this week by the GCC Hawks against Meridan, with some heavy defence from the opponents. The Hawks managed to battle through and win the game 20-14, and maintain their winning streak! The MVP this week went Lilly Barker for putting in 100% effort for every opportunity. Awesome to watch Hawks!

Jade King

Round 4
GCC lost to Sienna 15-17.

Round 5

Our Monday night game this week was tough! We played against the team sitting 2nd on the ladder and it was intense. We went down 37-7 but the girls fought right through until the end and never gave up!
We are getting a well deserved break before we return for Term 2 rested and ready to go!
Player of the match went to Grace McCartney, her efforts in defence and centre court were outstanding.

GCC Cross Country Carnival

This year’s Secondary GCC Cross Country Carnival was fantastic event. Races started from the Beerwah Sports Fields and continued through the surrounding bushland. The level of participation was very high and this ensured the success of the event.

There were some tough running efforts displayed and some fast finishes. Amongst participants this year, we have a group of talented runners that through training and determination managed to achieve district selection. These runners will have the opportunity to compete at the District and Regional Cross Country competitions taking place in Term 2.

Congratulations to Zion who this year managed to win the Secondary event and to Sinai who finished in front overall from Years 3 to 12. There were only two points separating Sinai and Ararat in first and second place.

Well done to our placegetters. You can see all the photos here.
