Each week the captains of the winter 1st teams will provide a report of their weekend match. All junior team scores can be found on the Sport News page of MyMarcellin.

July 20th Fixture

1st Cross Country - Kieran Hesse

Another cold and windy winters morning was the setting for round 5 of the AGSV Cross Country season. Being our first race back from an extended holiday break, there was a range of emotions around the team,  some boys were exited to show off their fitness gained over holiday trainings while others felt fear as they knew this race was the one with “the big hill”. This round of Cross country was particularly special however as it was finally our chance to wear the Indigenous themed singlet, to raise awareness for the issues facing Indigenous Australians and to mark our respect.

Our seniors were once again up first at 9:00 on a course covering just over 5Km. The ...

Mens Health Awareness Round
by Benjamin Reynolds - Wednesday, 12 June 2019, 2:01 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 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 Rugby, 1st XVIII Football, 1st XI Soccer and 1st Hockey will all wear light blue socks to create a talking point for all players, officials and spectators.  

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 AGSV Championships

Report by Teacher in Charge of Swimming, Mr David Bellis

The Marcellin AGSV Swim team came together for the final time in 2019 last Friday night, March 22nd. This is the night our swimmers have been preparing for every Tuesday and Thursday morning since the start of the term. Whilst a focus on team culture has been evident throughout the program, there was one true goal that every swimmer had for AGSV competition, which was to give Marcellin College a top 3 placing. Having come 4th for the previous three years  and the gap between us and Camberwell (3rd) decreasing each year, it was decided that 2019 was the year to finally achieve that goal.

We got off to the best start possible with Milton Simopoulos winning the very first event for the night (16/U 100m Freestyle). it was great to have Marcellin  on top of the points tally and set the tone for the ...
