PINE RIVERS DISTRICT CROSS COUNTRY

Murrumba SSC took a strong 50 member team to the recent Pine Rivers District Cross Country Carnival at Pine Rivers Park. The runners were faced with a wet track after consistent rain all morning. Despite the challenging conditions the students still managed to produce some excellent results with 10 students qualifying for the Pine Rivers District team to compete at the Metropolitan North trials later this month. Congratulations to Isabelle Matthew, Tasha Perez, Colby Cooper, Jaiden Patching, Layla Cassidy, Jesse Langton, Emily Robinson, Joshua Horsburgh, Brian Matthew and Graeme Skinner who all finished in the top 8 to secure a place in the Pine Rivers District team.

All students put in an exceptional effort representing the College and this was evident as we finished 3rd in the Percentage Trophy Category out of the 10 competing schools.  Congratulations to all students who participated.

U/15 BOYS PENINSULAR PLATE FUTSAL

The U/15 boys Futsal Team recently participated in the Peninsular Plate Futsal Tournament at Albany Creek State High School. The boys were competing against 4 of the strongest futsal schools in South East Queensland and were aware that they faced a challenging night. But they rose to the occasion producing an exceptional performance in the group stages to win three of their four games, securing a place in the grand final. The victories were the result of an excellent team performance with all 9 players working tirelessly throughout the night.

The final saw the boys matched up against home team Albany Creek SHS who had destroyed us during the group game 8-1. Determined to amend the earlier thrashing the team came out firing and took a deserving 2-0 lead into half time. However, fatigue got the better of the boys in the second half and Albany Creek secured a 4-2 victory.

All of the boys are to be commended for the way they conducted themselves on the night with special mention to Chris Waller whose mesmerising skills saw him named player of the night.

U/15 GIRLS PENINSULAR PLATE FUTSAL

Murrumba State Secondary College had the privilege of hosting the U/15 Girls round of the Peninsular Plate Futsal Tournament. It was the first evening event to be held in our Sports centre and the girls were keen to put in a good performance. However, with a very young team made up of a combination of 13, 14 and 15 year olds, we faced a difficult night against teams made up entirely of Year 10 girls.

Despite the tough games, the girls never gave up and even though we were unable to secure a victory the girls continued to be excellent representatives of the College all night. Congratulations to Grace Waller who was rewarded for her tireless effort by being named player of the night.

AUSTRALIAN LITTLE ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Jayden Krushka went to Melbourne to represent at the Australian Little Athletics Championships.The weather was cold and wet but he managed to come out and run fairly well.

In the 400m, Jayden qualified for the Finals, then finished 5th in the Final. Both of his runs were PB's so that was an extraordinary effort.

In the 200, Jayden didn't make Finals and finished 10th overall, which is still a very good effort.

The Relay team put up a great race and finished 4th, only just missing out on 3rd place.

As an overall effort, QLD won the Alan Triscott Trophy which they haven’t won in 13 years and finished 3rd in the Total Leader Board over all States.

We are very proud of Jayden in both his Athletic efforts in Melbourne and for his sportsmanship; thank you once again for everybody’s on-going support with Jayden as it all helps in preparation for race events such as these.
