Senior Sports – TBall, Cricket, Touch and Tennis
March 29, 2019
With the disappointing news that the TBall Interschools Tournament was cancelled due to venue issue, Miss Hennessey got to work and was able to quickly pull together a fun afternoon for the teams to put their skills to the test. Each team played three games; Mt Carmel 1 won 1, lost 2 and Mt Carmel 2 won 2, lost 1. The sportsmanship and good-natured competition between all the schools made for an enjoyable event. Thank you Miss Hennessey for organising this event for our teams. Another big THANK YOU to our coaches, Katrina Martin and Shari Tighe-Umbers, who gave up their time to share their skills and knowledge with us. We really appreciate your commitment to the team. Mrs Louise Spora
The Mt Carmel Cricket Team represented our school superbly. Our players demonstrated a "positive, can do" attitude and everyone played to the best of their ability. The team played 2 games against St Michaels. We won one 153-91 and lost one, marginally by 11 runs, scoring 117-106. Many thanks to Sally Lowe and Lucy Florence for coaching the team and Ryan Jolly for umpiring on the day. Mrs June Ivamy
Jona and David entered the tennis tournament for Summer Field days. This tournament requires the children to understand and know how to play tennis. It is a fun tournament where participation and enjoyment are key. The children played 6 games throughout the day. Well done to the boys who represented our school, and who demonstrated our school values of Strength and Kindness. Mrs Liz Hennessy
Three teams of excited children represented Mt Carmel at the Interschool Touch competition.
The Year 6 boys with some help from 3 up and coming year 5 boys faced off against Kings first. There were some jitters and missed opportunities but the lose helped focused them and got them ready for the rest of the games. One of the high points was keeping Saint Kentigern’s Boys School to a 2 all draw. At the end of the day their record was 1 Win, 1 Lose and 3 draws. This placed them 7th out of 10 strong teams.
The Year 6 girls team with one speedy year 5 girl, had a great day despite having zero substitutes. The girls worked really hard together to win 5 games and have 1 draw. This impressive record was good enough to place them 1st in the Girls competition. Their plus 13 point differential was the real testament to their hard work. Several of the girls, towards the end had all manner of bumps and bruises but they persevered and won for the second year in a row. Mr JP Cawley
The mix team was made up of all year 5 students and in my opinion they seemed to be having the most fun. Their good attitude and sportsmanship was noted by several teams and parents. They had a couple of really close games and ended with 3 wins and 3 loses. This result was good enough put them 4th out of seven teams and left them hungry to play more and do better next year.
All this would not have been possible without the help of our Mt Carmel parents. Thanks to all the parents who help transport on the day. Special thanks go to Mrs Marsden, Mrs Gimblett, Ms Hyde and Ms Gibson and a very special thank you to Mr Barsdell, who helped referee the whole day.
