Sporting News

Junior (Years 7 and 8) and Intermediate (Years 9 and 10) sport commenced last week for Softball, Indoor Cricket and Tennis. Senior (Year 11 and 12) girls have continued their unbeaten run with two wins from 2two outings in all sports!

The Swimming and Diving teams have been training twice a week since the beginning of term including participating in a number of practice meets at Genazzano, Ruyton and Korowa. The girls are well prepared for the Preliminary GSV Carnival at MSAC this Friday. We wish all girls the best of luck and hope for a strong result to place us in a good position for the GSV Championships in two weeks time.

Siena College participated in the GSV Triathlon in Altona last Sunday morning. Usually we have around six or seven girls sign up however this year we had a record number of fifty girls! Many of the girls were participating in their first ever triathlon. The nervous faces on the bus at 5.30am soon turned into smiles as they felt a sense of accomplishment after their race. Many thanks to Ms Catherine Ryan for all her work behind the scenes organising the girls and encouraging them to take on this fantastic opportunity. We have attached some photos of the triathlon to this article.

Last weekend Teah Wilson (Year 7) competed in the Eastern Metropolitan Region championships for shot put and won gold! This is a fantastic achievement and Teah has now been selected to compete at the State Championships later this year. She has also been selected to be mentored by Australian Olympic Swimmer, Mack Horton which she is very excited about.

Parents and students are encouraged to regularly check the Siena Central Sport page for the latest updates on fixtures, training and team selection. I email the girls prior to each week outlining venues, bus times and staffing for training and matches.

Thank you very much for your support of the sport program at Siena College.
