Zone Swimming Carnival – 2015 Results

It was a glorious sunny day last Monday 16/2, and a perfect day for the Zone Swimming Carnival! A team of swimmers represented WCCS, with fantastic results all round. WCCS placed second overall on the score board – an absolute outstanding effort!

CSSA and CIS Trials – 2015

CIS (Combined Independent Schools) and CSSA (Christian Schools Sports Association) trials are for experienced, high level athletes only.

There are opportunities throughout the year to trial for CSSA teams to represent CSSA at Combined Independent Schools (CIS) Carnivals.

CIS is a highly competitive state wide competition for Independent schools. Some sports require students to be individually nominated to trial for CIS teams, whereas others require qualification through CSSA. Selection trials for CIS are only open to high level players.

Further information about trials and CIS events and the full calendar can be found on the CIS website: http://www.aisnsw.edu.au/Services/CIS/Pages/default.aspx

CSSA information and the full calendar can be found on the CSSA website: www.cssa.net.au

If you are a WCCS student interested in being nominated to attend the trials for a particular sport, or would like further information, please email your details for consideration to primarysport@wccs.nsw.edu.au

Please note that nominations closing date deadlines specified for trials are final and that late entries will not be accepted.

The Primary Sport Blog will have reminders throughout the year on entry due dates for upcoming events.

Super 8’s Cricket Gala Day

On Tuesday 10th Feb, the Sen Boys primary Cricket team played in a Super 8 Gala day competition organised by CSSA. The tournament was held at Jamison Park Penrith. The boys played 3 round robin matches winning these convincingly –

v Tyndale CS 5/91 : 3/62,

v Pacific Hills CS 0/72 : 4/64

v Norwest CC 2/105 : 5/34

They advanced to the Quarter Final where they played Tyndale again and won 2/80 : 4/64.

After advancing to the semi Finals, where they played Norcross CC, they unfortunately had a batting collapse and were all out for 49. They bowled exceptionally well to make the game very competitive in the final overs, only to lose by 2 runs. Final score 8/49 : 4/51

The boys demonstrated exceptional sportsmanship, encouraging one another throughout the games. They were well led throughout the tournament by their captain, Tommy Stanton.
