The Girls’ Volleyball season has kicked off with some strong results in Round 1 against St Paul’s; Year 9A, Year 10A and 2nds came away with wins, with a special mention to the Year 10 team for a 3-0 win. Unfortunately, the Year 7A and Year 8A teams had tough 2-1 losses and the 1st VI had an extremely narrow 3-2 loss. In the supplementary competitions, the CHAC Year 9 Blue team had an outstanding win against St Paul’s (3-0). However, the CHAC Year 8 Blue lost 2-1. In Round 2, the TAS Volleyball teams had a bye, but the supplementary teams had some friendly competition. CHAC 8 Red played CHAC 8 Blue, with CHAC 8 Red coming out on top 2-1.
The CHAC girls will be playing at home in the next two rounds against Ormiston and Canterbury and, as always, the girls are determined to try their best and come away with some good results. I strongly encourage everyone to support the Volleyball girls as well as the other CHAC teams as much as you can. It’s always great to see so many supportive friends and family at home games, and hopefully the support from the crowd can bring home some wins in these next two weeks.

Round 1 against St Paul’s had CHAC coming out strong, with all teams performing their best. Special mention goes to the Year 9 team which enjoyed a convincing 3-0 win, CHAC Year 7 blue with an outstanding 4-2 victory, and the Year 10 boys who narrowly missed an opportunity to go up 2-0 when an excellently delivered free kick just skimmed the cross bar; they did manage a 1-0 victory.
The 1st XI battled it out well but, unfortunately, fell short conceding a 0-2 loss. They are now hungry to come away with a win in the coming weeks. With the bye out of the way, CHAC is ready for its next fixture this weekend at home against Ormiston College. Good luck to all teams and let’s continue maintaining these high standards at training and games.

The Touch Football season has kicked off to a great start, with the girls from our Year 7 to Year 10 teams winning their games against St Paul’s in Round 1. Our 1st VI and 2nd VI teams played well in close matches but are still looking for a win this season. Last week, all teams except Year 8 Red had a bye. This gave CHAC the extra time to train and prepare for successful games against Ormiston College. The Year 8 Red team put in a fantastic effort in a very close game against Ormiston; it would be fantastic to see this effort continue to grow throughout the season. Good luck to all teams playing this weekend. We would appreciate all CHAC supporters coming and supporting the teams and staying to watch the 1st VI.

Boys’ Basketball has started the season with a strong first week of matches, with many teams coming out on top. Special congratulations to the Year 10A team which had a convincing 59-23 win. The Year 8A team also showed its superiority with a 44-9 win against St Paul’s. The 1st V, Year 9A, and Year 7A teams also walked away with strong wins against St Paul’s. Unfortunately, the 2nd V went down by one point in a close 38-39 loss.
This week is our first home game of the season against Ormiston College. It would be great to see the support of our peers throughout the day.
