2018 Marist Cricket Carnival
by Benjamin Reynolds - Thursday, 29 November 2018, 2:52 PM

The 2018 Marist Cricket Carnival started on Tuesday with a squad of 13 players flying to Perth. Host school Newman College is located 20 minutes from the CDB of Perth and has done a great job in organising the carnival of over 100 players and officials.

 The schools that have joined us in Perth are St Gregorys Campbelltown, Trinity College Lismore, Assumption College Kilmore, Trinity College Beenleigh. Teams will play five days of cricket over six days with a rest day on Saturday.

The carnival started back in 1974 and has grown to having 18 schools playing at three different host schools each December. Events such as these remind us of how wonderful it is to be part of the Marist family. It is easy to forget sometimes in the day to day routine of school life that we are all part of this larger community.

The early guiding principles clearly state the intentions of the carnival.

The original concept was to expose our boys to the wider Marist community, to help them remove School or State blinkers and see there are Schools, Brothers, Lay Staff and boys just like them, with the same ideals and background, and steeped in the same Marist spirit and tradition, in places right across the nation; to have our boys meet these of the Marist men on and off the cricket field; to provide an opportunity for boys, staff and families to make friends across the nation; to involve parents as workers and supporters; in short, to promulgate and strengthen the Marist message.

This years carnival results will be posted via MyCricket. A link to that competition can be found here.

1st Basketball - Andrew Giddens

This weeks matchup brought a grand final rematch for the 1st basketball team, playing an undeafeated Ivanhoe team. Marcellin showed up more prepared as they shot out to an early 8-0 lead and never looked back from there.  The lead remained around 12 pts for the majority of the game. Marcellin had a spread of double digit scorers with Joel Capetola, Daniel Foster, Nathan Poelsma and myself all having 10+ points. In the end the boys got the win 56-69 and continuing on the undefeated start to the season.

2019 Sport Captain - Lucas Perry
by Benjamin Reynolds - Friday, 2 November 2018, 2:10 PM

Congratulations to Lucas Perry who has been elected as 2019 Sport Captain. Lucas has a great passion for sport and is very keen to lead the Sport program next year. A Faulkner student, Lucas has represented Marcellin at both Football, Basketball and Athletics since year seven. He debuted for the 1st XVIII as a year ten student but unfortunately missed the following season due to a shoulder injury. He is already training for the winter season next year. He was  part of the Intermediate Basketball team that won a state Championship in 2017 and broke the U14 400m school record in 2014.  

Lucas is the son of an Old Collegian Kevin Perry (1985) who with his wife Kathy have been fantastic support for all three of their sons involvement in the Marcellin community and the sport program. Lucas is the third youngest of four siblings with Jordan finishing in 2013, Matthew in 2015 has a younger sister in primary school.

What is Lucas looking forward to in his new role? I’m most looking forward to increasing the recognition of all athletes representing the Eagle and continuing the improve the already amazing sports culture we have at Marcellin. Lucas will be the face of the program and with that comes the task of being a role model to the younger boys at Marcellin. He will do that superbly. His advice to younger athletes is simple. My best advice to juniors is try everything, even if you’ve never played the sport before and you have doubts, just try it, you can always surprise yourself with hidden talents, and come away with great mates.

I wish Lucas well for his role of Sport Captain.

Squash Captain announced for Summer Season & Rd 1 Captains Reports
by Benjamin Reynolds - Wednesday, 24 October 2018, 11:59 AM

Congratulations to Julian Berghella who will captain the 1st Squash program for the second year in a row. A Carnie student, Julian has played squash for Marcellin every year since year eight. He has also played tennis and football. Julian rates the two Squash Victoria Pennants in previous seasons as his best achievements so far and is looking to see if the team can obtain another one again this season. What else is he looking forward to in his role as Captain? Inspiring the upcoming junior players to strive for the highest and become great players like myself and the others in the 1st team. His advice for junior players is to attend training every week because it’s going to make you a better player by practicing  against players who are older than you and with more experience.

Good luck to Julian and the squash teams for the season ahead.
