The past two weeks of Rugby against Ormiston College and Canterbury College were two difficult fixtures for all teams. Unfortunately, none of our teams could come away with a victory, but CHAC fought well right to the end. All teams played against the odds and maintained our highly commended spirit throughout the fixtures.
Specifically, our 1st XV team played with minimum players for most of the game and refused to give up. Coming up against two Rugby strongholds in the upcoming rounds; John Paul College and St Paul's School, CHAC looks to translate the hard-work and dedication displayed in trainings into wins.
In Rounds 5 and 6 of the TAS compeition this term, CHAC came up against our toughest opposition yet; Ormiston College and Canterbury College. Both clashes delivered mixed results and featured strong performances from all CHAC Tennis teams.
Our Round 5 encounter with Ormiston marked a first defeat, and a disappointing end to what has been a terrific run of form for most CHAC teams. Despite this, the Year 7 team maintained their undefeated status, with a convincing straight sets victory over their opponents. Furthermore, after encouraging performances from all teams, our spirits were not dampened.
In Round 6, we prepared for a tough clash with Canterbury. The weekend was filled with both great success and close defeat for CHAC. The 2nd IV, Year 9 and Year 7 teams were all victorious, and have positioned themselves into Premiership contention. Unfortunately, the 1st IV suffered another close defeat with the decision going down to the game score.
Next week, all teams hope to bounce back with renewed vigour and cement their places as title contenders.
CHAC Girls’ Hockey has had a marvellous season so far. It’s been great to see all the girls having fun out on the field, whilst also continually improving their skills and idea of the game. I would like to congratulate all teams on their efforts over the past few weeks, especially the Year 9 team, who have demonstrated a strong, competitive spirit in recent games.
Round 5 saw the CHAC girls play against Ormiston College. After an intense and competitive game, the 1st XI unfortunately came away with a 2-0 loss. However, the Year 8 team played an outstanding game and came away with a well-deserved 3-1 win.
Last week in Round 6, the CHAC girls competed against Canterbury College. Canterbury has always proved to be strong competitors on the field, and the 2018 season was no different. Unfortunately, all teams were unable to secure a win; however, a special mention should be given to the Year 9 team who had a very close result, losing 3-2.
At this point in the season, the 1st XI and Year 9 teams are placed fifth on the ladder, the 2nd XI are seventh, Year 8 fourth and the Year 7 team are sixth.
With finals upon us in just three weeks, it has been so good to see the high dedication to training from all teams as well the high levels of sportsmanship and teamwork during the games.
Both Round 5 and 6 had varying results across all of our Netball teams. While Ormiston proved to be tough opponents in Round 5, all girls displayed the CHAC spirit and fought hard until the end. Congratulations to the Year 10B, 9A, 9B, 8B, 8 Blue and 8 Red teams who were victorious. Round 6 against Canterbury was also a challenge. Congratulations to the 2nd VII, 10B, 9B, 7A, 7B, 8 Blue and 8 Red teams who came away with wins. A special mention must go to the Year 10B team who have remained undefeated – this is an outstanding effort! Thank you to all the coaches, staff and parents who have supported CHAC Netball this term.
Good luck to all teams in the upcoming round against JPC!
