Summer Wrap - Captains Reports

Round 5 November 23rd

1st Basketball – Daniel Reid

Heading into the last game for 2019 we knew that Mentone would have a strong team just as they do every other year. However, it was clear from the first tip off that we had come to win and were playing well from the very start, building a lead of 8 points to finish up the first quarter 18-10. With the help of some great outside shooting and fast transition plays we were able to extend this lead even further in the second quarter, finishing up the half with the scores set at 35-21. The third quarter took a similar pattern as Mentone struggled to keep up with our pace of Basketball allowing us to finish up the third quarter with the scores at 67-31, our way. The last quarter we ensured not to take the foot off the pedal and continued to extend our lead right until the very end, ultimately winning the game by 41 points with ...

by Benjamin Reynolds - Thursday, 7 November 2019, 10:36 AM
 

Congratulations to the following boys who were selected at Captains for their teams this summer season. All boys are held in high regard by their peers and their coaches and will do a fantastic job representing the college. 

1st Squash - Christopher Pon

Chris is an outstanding Squash player who currently holds a scholarship at Kooyong Lawn Tennis club and is ranked 2nd in Victoria. The Lavalla student has represented the college in squash since year seven and rates the 2019 Victorian Senior Schools squash Championship as a highlight. Chris has also represented Marcellin at the AGSV Swimming Championships and has played 1st Hockey in year nine and ten. When asked what he is looking forward to as captain he replied "I am most looking forward to assisting the team to develop skills both on and off the court.

2020 Sport Captain - Jacskon Tierney
by Benjamin Reynolds - Wednesday, 16 October 2019, 12:28 PM
 

Congratulations to Jackson Tierney who has been elected as the 2020 Sports Captain. The Lavalla student is a keen Cross Country and Athletics runner and has represented the College in both sports during his time at Marcellin. 

Athletic season follows shortly after the Cross Country, so he quickly swaps his cross country spikes for a pair of track spikes and just keeps training. When asked about his best achievement so far within the program he spoke highly of the 2019 success of both Cross Country and Athletics teams which both won Premierships. Jackson went on to say I was part of the Athletics team which finally won the premiership after a 51-year drought however I also take pride in contributing to the Cross Country team, which has successfully won 20 AGSV premierships in a row.

Jackson will be a fantastic role model as the 2020 Sport Captain. When asked what he was looking forward to most he replied with the following. Continuing the rich vein of our sporting tradition and success. As well as being able to meet more boys, see them take part in the sport community and meet new mates whilst enjoying the respective sports they play.

As a senior student who has competed in a lot of sport his advice to junior students is simple. Don’t be afraid to try something new, Marcellin offers you plenty of opportunities so make use of them. Just go out there, give it a shot and have fun. 

We wish Jackson well for the sporting year ahead.

August 17 

Athletics - Declan Carman

With the possibility of claiming Marcellin’s second ever AGSV athletics championship after a second place finish last year, a committed group of athletes attended many of the training sessions and Saturday trial events, eager to be a part of making Marcellin sporting history. Many outstanding individual performances meant Marcellin were able to put together its most well-rounded team in recent memory.

The boys primed themselves for an outstanding result on the back of some notable performances. Brock Binion was hugely influential in winning both the 400m and the 800m, as was both our team captain, Declan Carman and Owen Rice who won the Shot put and the Discus.

However,...
