by Benjamin Reynolds - Monday, 11 June 2018, 8:49 AM
 

Summer Sport Sign Up 

It may seem a long way off but planning has started already for the 2019 Summer season. The first part of planning requires all boys to complete their 2019 Summer Sport Sign Up. Every student in the college was emailed instructions asking them to complete the questionnaire, even those not intending to be part of the program. This information is critical for students to be entered into the correct teams at each year level. Summer Sport options for all boys are Basketball, Cricket, Tennis Volleyball and Squash. Information about term three Athletics is also on the sign up form.

All families are asked to check with their son to ensure they have completed the questionnaire. Summer sport will be played during term four and term one with information about training nights and games being shared prior to the term three holidays. Further information regarding the Summer Sport program can be found on the College website under the Sport tab.

Our 1st Hockey team ventured down to Mentone last Saturday and played their best match of the season. The team is very young and so much development has taken place under the coaching of Justin Griggs and Alex Pozzobon. It was great for the boys to translate that into six away goals and a win. The 1st XI soccer team also had a fantastic away win against Ivanhoe and sit in a fantastic position on the AGSV ladder after four rounds. Our 1st XV team also enjoyed an away win against Brighton Grammar and remain undefeated after five rounds. Our Cross country team had another fine performance at a...

Our 1st XV Rugby team have made a fantastic start to their season winning the first four rounds. Last Saturdays game against Trinity was a nail bitter with the winning try coming within the last two minutes of the game. The 1st XI soccer team remain underfeated after a great win over Peninsua and the Cross Country team continue to make every post a winner in their season. It was great to have some senior boys return into our 1st hockey team but unfortunately they came up against last years AGSV Premiers in red hot form. A full reports of all 1st games can be found below.

Jansz to Lead 1st Hockey Team
by Benjamin Reynolds - Tuesday, 8 May 2018, 1:01 PM
 

Congratulations to Xavier Jansz who has been named 1st Hockey Captain for the 2018 season. The Kenny student has played Hockey for Marcellin since year seven  and made his debut for the 1st team in year ten. As captain he is looking forward to helping the younger, less experienced players gain experience and learn skills to help them improve their hockey. His advice to junior players is to keep practicing your key skills to help you improve into better players. Stay with the school hockey program as Mr Griggs puts lots and lots of effort into trying to help players become better and he has helped lots of players including myself.

Xavier also plays Hockey for  Yarra Valley Hockey club when not representing Marcellin. I wish him well for the season ahead.
