Co-Curricular News

On Thursday 27 September 2018, Rostrevor College participated in the Achilles Cup at the SA Athletics Stadium.  Our team of approximately 80 students, led by Mr Deegan and Br Coughlin, travelled with the intent of claiming our first ever victory in the Achilles Cup, having never previously been crowned victors. The day itself was long with some boys arriving at school at 7:45am to get on the bus to be transported to the stadium in time for their first event.  As expected, energy levels seemed to ebb and flow throughout the course of the day but the boys never lost their focus and were able to come away with some fantastic results.

We started reasonably slowly in terms of early results with the first official placing announcement seeing Rostrevor College sitting in 5th position and seeing Mr Deegan's face firmly entrenched in the palm of his hand.  However, on the back of some terrific field results we were able to climb into 3rd position by midday.  Our middle and long distance runners (coached by Old Scholar Steven McKenna) performed tremendously to have us firmly in the hunt for 2nd position which was held by Prince Alfred College.  Despite some scorching times being posted by our sprinters, and spirited efforts from our relay teams, we weren't quite able to close the gap and finished the day in a very respectable 3rd position.  Whilst this is fantastic, the feeling amongst many of the boys was clear that this could have been improved with stronger commitment to trainings over the past month.  Hopefully the realisation of just how talented our athletes can be will set the tone for a different approach next year.

I would like to extend a large thank you to all staff, students and parents/caregivers who assisted at trainings and on the day itself.  Every opportunity our students have to represent the College in such a way leaves lasting memories and none of it would be possible without the tireless work of those behind the scenes.  In particular, Mr Deegan and Br Coughlin should be congratulated for their continued display of passion and commitment towards the Athletics Program and being able to rally the students to respond in the same way.  It was a fitting way to end what has been an incredibly busy term of Co-Curricular activities.

A complete list of place getters from the Achilles Cup is accessible via the link below.  Enjoy the break and I look forward to the commencement of our Summer sports in Term 4!

If your son, be he a current or past scholar, has made any significant achievement in an activity outside of the College, please pass this on to me via email lmanuel@rostrevor.sa.edu.au or by phone, so that I can include his achievements in the weekly newsletter.

Strong performances by the 80 Rostrevor athletes who competed in the Achilles Cup on Thursday led to an overall placing of 3rd in the 15 participating schools event.
