Girls’ Basketball

Round 5 against St Paul’s School saw ten out of our thirteen teams come away with wins. This is an outstanding outcome and all teams should be proud of the effort they put in. Special mention to our Year 10 team for yet another hard-fought win, and our 1st V, for coming within seven points of the top team. Round 6 against Canterbury saw every team put up a good fight; however, we were unsuccessful in coming away with some wins. I’d like to give a special mention to our 2nd V team for a strong win—they are now on their way to a Premiership. With two rounds left before the final, CHAC still has numerous teams in contention for a Premiership. I would like to encourage all girls to finish the season strong, as CHAC Basketball as a whole is currently in second place overall. With a big push towards the end of the season, we can definitely push for a very high finish.

Girls’ Tennis

Girl’s Tennis has continued to be a strong and successful sport this term; every team has strived for their very best at every training session and game. This is something that has continued throughout the term and I believe it is the reason why Girls’ Tennis has been as so successful. We have faced some serious competition in the last few weeks, but the girls have risen to the occasion, have kept a competitive face and have continued to be good sports. Round 5 against St Paul’s School was incredibly successful, with four wins, one tie and only one loss. The Years 7, 8 and 9 teams all came away winning their games. This is a tremendous effort from all girls involved.

Unfortunately, our teams were not as successful in Round 6 against Canterbury College, and only came away with two wins. Even with these results, I know all the girls put in their best effort. With upcoming matches against St John’s and JPC, I am sure CHAC Tennis will rise to the occasion and continue to be successful throughout all year levels. A big thank you to all the girls that have stayed and helped with the umpiring– it is greatly appreciated.

Boys’ Volleyball

In Rounds 5 and 6 of the TAS competition, CHAC competed predominately against St Paul’s School and Canterbury College. The round against St Paul’s proved to be a very tough one considering St Paul’s are always solid opponents, particularly in Volleyball; however, in a great result for the College, CHAC won nine from thirteen games. 

Canterbury was also strong, but CHAC still won ten out of the eleven games played. We have once again demonstrated our dominance within Volleyball in TAS, though what I am very proud of is the way we conduct ourselves on the court and respect our opponents. Both weeks have seen solid performances and I am very keen to see this momentum carry through for the remainder of the season.

Cricket

Rounds 5 and 6 proved to be quite successful for the CHAC Cricket community. Round 5 saw CHAC host St Paul’s School, where three teams won or drew and the other three falling just short of a victory. Congratulations to Tristan Minott, who scored a classy half-century. Round 6 was also a successful round for CHAC. We took on Canterbury College and won three out of our six games. Despite winning only half of our games, many individuals put up some high-quality performances, including Patrick Schultz, who made 64 runs which helped secure a convincing win for the Intermediate As. Well done to Alec Bettenay who scored 63 not out for the 3rd XI. The boys have worked really hard at trainings recently and I am excited for some more positive results as we get to the pointy end of the season.
