National Swimming Titles
After a fantastic start to the swimming year with representation at the Australian Age Swimming Championships and at the trials for the Australian Open Age World Championships Team, Saphron Davis has continued her hard work, seeing great success.
Butterfly is often the most difficult swimming event for many people, but this harsh event is where the tenacious Saphron shines.
In her most recent competition, Saphron represented Queensland at the 2023 School Sport Australia National Swimming Championships from 21 – 25 August at the Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre. All her hard work and early morning swimming training is paying off with Saphron coming home with some exceptional results. She earned her spot on the podium for not one, but two events.
Saphron is the 2023 16 Years National Champion for the 100m butterfly. She then backed up this great achievement with a silver medal in the 50m butterfly.
The future is looking bright for this amazing young lady. We are all so proud of your achievements, well done Saphron!
Netball Grand Finals
Congratulations to the Girls Grammar Club netball teams, Saturn and Galaxy, on making their respective grand finals. Grand finals will be played at Jardine Park Netball Courts on Sunday 3 September.
While Saturn got the big dance the hard way after a loss in their major semi. The preliminary final saw a tough match where Saturn fought out a gritty win 32-25 over Frenchville Otters. The girls kept their composure and stayed in control of the game to get a second chance to take down Runaways Obsidian, who narrowly edged them out in the semi. This grand final match will be played at 5.30pm and we would love a big crowd out there to cheer Saturn home.
Galaxy headed straight to the grand final last week after a convincing win in their major semi final. They will play Frenchville Ponies at 7.00pm. With close games between these two teams all year, it will be a great game to watch, so please head on out and support the girls.
Don’t forget that the Club Netball presentation evening will be Tuesday 12 September at McKeague Hall. Players need to accept in parent lounge for catering purposes. If players would like to bring guests, please email Sport@rggs.qld.edu.au as soon as possible so they can be added to the payment event.
In late news, our football (soccer) team are through to the Grand Final next week after a thrilling 1-0 win against Rockhampton Grammar School yesterday afternoon. A penalty converted by Aylah was all that separated the two teams. We wish them all the best in what will be a tough final against a very strong Emmaus team.
