Swim Squad - Leon Iera

This week the swimming team were eager to train hard to best prepare themselves for the last Friday night’s trial. There was a massive turnout at PEGS with all the swimmer’s vying for their best chance in racing events at the AGSV competition night. It’s just over a fortnight away!! 

Thanks to Jack Harrowell who has been organising a cheer squad for the night. It would be a first that Marcellin would have a cheer squad from their fellow Eagles. We’d all love your support in helping us try to achieve a podium finish.

Sports Star of the Week
by Alex Pozzobon - Monday, 4 March 2019, 1:04 PM

Each week we look to highlight achievers in the sport program over the past round. These can be in the form of elite performances as well as highlight plays, high levels of sportsmanship, leadership and encouragement.




"Ted Meehan, on your far right when looking at the picture. As well as having one of the best score lines of the day in his singles, Ted fought hard in his doubles and always encouraged and affirmed his playing partner. Ted has been a consistent player at training's too across the season, always attending to the drills and looking to improve." - words from Carolyn Young.




Jake Donovan made 60 runs off just 59 balls to get the Marcellin Intermediate B team over the line against Ivanhoe.

Mens Health Awareness Round
by Benjamin Reynolds - Monday, 11 February 2019, 6:26 PM

The Sport program at Marcellin prides itself on creating an environment that focuses on sportsmanship whilst developing physically, mentally and social skills of all of our boys. This weekend all 1st teams will look to take the next step and make an impact on all males within our community. Sport can be a fantastic vehicle to educate the broader community and this weekend we aim to highlight the importance on Men's Health, an issue that the Health and Physical Education department have promoted for many years via the Men's Health Night and year ten curriculum. 

All boys representing Marcellin in Cross Country, 1st Basketball, Cricket, Tennis, Squash and Volleyball will all wear light blue socks to create a talking point for all players, officials and spectators.  The 1st XI will also don light blue baggies

The aim is for males to take more care in their everyday health by making simple changes with their behaviour. We want boys to educate males in their life to:

  • overcome the fear of visiting their GP regularly
  • make physical activity a priority in their life
  • eat healthy and reduce portion sizes.
  • stop smoking
  • reduce alcohol intake
  • pick up the phone and talk to their mates. 

Change is always hard but is easier with the help of others. We encourage sons, fathers, uncles, grandfathers, wives, sisters, grandmothers and daughters to all support the males in their life to make their health a priority. 

Old boy Dr Bernie Crimmins is a fantastic support to our community regarding the issue of Mens Health. It is a passion of his and he is very well known for his drive to help all males make a change. Please take three minutes to listen to his advice.

2019 Swim Season Commences
by Benjamin Reynolds - Tuesday, 12 February 2019, 10:27 AM

Congratulations to Leon Iera who has been elected Captain of the 2019 Swim Team. Leon is in Lavalla house and in Mr Edwards Pastoral group. He dedicated swimmer who has represented Marcellin since year seven. His achievements include representing Marcellin as part of the Team Vic swim team at the National Championships for the last three years. He has also represented Marcellin in the Cross Country program. Outside Marcellin Leon swims for Surrey Park swim club.

Leon is highly regarded as a great swimmer but will do a fantastic job leading the team. 

As a captain, I am most looking forward to building the team spirit and comradery amongst the great team of Marcellin swimmers. I am looking forward to getting to know all the team especially the new year 7s and be a support for all so that as a collective, we can achieve the greatest results possible. A massive goal would be for Marcellin to get a podium finish on the AGSV competition night at MSAC in March. 

His advice to younger athletes is to give as many events as you can a go whilst having fun! Embrace and celebrate our team spirit and even if you don’t think you’re the best swimmer, come down to training and be part of the swimming team. It would be awesome to have you on board.

We wish Leon and the entire swim team well for the season ahead.
