Boys’ Basketball had another triumphant season achieving third overall, and contributing to overall Trimester 3 champions. All boys’ basketball members should be proud of themselves for their achievements. Huge congratulations to the lads as 7 out of the 9 teams placed top four for the season. Special mention must be made to the Seconds who exhibited their authority by establishing themselves undefeated throughout the whole season, however, falling just shy of gold in the finals. Year 8 Red and Year 9A must also be commended for their valiant and convincing grand final wins. Thank you to all the players and parents for their support towards CHAC Basketball; it has been a pleasure and an absolute honour to have represented this fantastic sport and College in 2019.

For our last game of the season, CHAC hosted its annual Alumni Round to acknowledge the school’s past students. In a round that happened to be against rival school JPC and with many teams in make-or-break positions, this attributed to many intensely entertaining matches. Despite JPC getting the better on four occasions with the other two as draws, we saw passion and devotion for CHAC football on the day, which would only build character and team unity for future games or even seasons to come. Thanks to a double, 1st XI winger Owen Masnjak was also presented the annual “Best on Ground” award for the event. With a tough round to finish the season, we entered finals with four teams playing off for premierships, and, unfortunately, our Years 7, 8, 9 teams walked away as runners-up. Our Year 10 team won in dominant fashion with a 3-1 victory over JPC to take out the premiership. 1st XI and 2nd XI teams closed out the season in an unfortunate yet hard-fought sixth and fifth place, whilst our supplementary team narrowly lost 3-2 and thus finished in fourth. This year has been another showing of dominance in CHAC football though, and it is important we continue to improve and better our performances for years to come with the ultimate hope of more and more premierships. Thank you to our coaches, players and parents for your commitment and devotion to football this season, and I look forward to another successful year in 2020.
The end of the Touch Football season showed great improvement. Although no teams got a premiership, the commitment to each game allowed for impressive placings. The Year 9 team was the most successful throughout the term finishing 2nd overall, this is an amazing effort. The Year 7s came away with a convincing 3rd place and the Year 8 and 10 team placed 4th. The Year 7 supplementary team placed a commendable 5th and the 2nds VII placed 7th. The 1st IV placed 6th and also kept a strong fight. I commend everyone on their efforts throughout the term. Every player should be proud of their efforts in CHAC’s 5th overall placing.

The Finals are always an exciting day of sport and everyone is keen to go away with a win on this last day of sport for the trimester. For volleyball teams, this was truly a prominent thought with teams vying for premierships and everyone knowing that to win would help the cause to be the best sporting school in TAS for this trimester. The girls all fought with determination and focus to win these last games of the trimester, as it is always good for to win these finals games, whether it is for a premiership or for fifth position. The hard work at training throughout the season paid off, with six teams beating their opponents.
Congratulations must go to the Seconds who dug deep and played a controlled and solid team game to turn the tables on their opponents to win their premiership. The Year 10 Blue team played a strong game and built on their dominance of this season to win a premiership. A special thanks must go to their respective coaches for their guidance and support to the girls in the final match to keep them focused on the goal. Winning the premiership is no easy task, so these teams truly demonstrate the determination, energy and desire to improve and become better players – qualities that build winners and champions.
I would like to congratulate the girls, in all of our teams, for their amazing commitment and eagerness shown throughout the season. Thank you to the coaches for their guidance, parents and friends for your support on the day – you have provided the backbone and motivation, which has helped push CHAC to grow and be better at the sport – and I’m sure we all wish to see this continue on over the years. Thank you
