Senior Campus Sport News

The end of Term 3 saw the culmination of Winter Sport, with many Woodleigh teams enjoying very successful seasons. At SIS level, Term 3 Weekly Sport had 8 Woodleigh teams competing, three winning their pennants.

Congratulations to the Intermediate Boys Touch Rugby (undefeated), Intermediate Girls Netball (undefeated), and the Intermediate Girls Netball teams, who were all pennant winners.

The Winter Season FDNA Netball competition finished the term with its finals series. All four Woodleigh teams won through the Semi-Finals, qualifying for their Grand Finals. Grand Final night was special; it was the first opportunity we had to play inside the incredible new Jubilee Park Stadium. The atmosphere was amazing; the crowds were large and full of voice, and the competition was intense. The Woodleigh Pearls were victorious on the night in a dominant display of precision netball.

Our teams represented the school impressively, not just in the Grand Final but throughout all of Term 2 & 3. FDNA Grand Final Results were:

Year 7/8 Division 1 – Woodleigh Diamonds 22 lost to Flinders Thunderbirds 24

Year 7/8 Division 2 – Woodleigh Sapphires 12 lost to Purple Tigers 28

Year 9/10 Division 1 – Woodleigh Topaz 14 lost to Flinders Vixens 17

Year 9/10 Division 2 – Woodleigh Pearls 32 defeated Flinders Giants 17

As I write this article, the Winter Season FDBA Basketball competition is in the middle of Grand Final week. The Under 16 Girls D2 team had an epic Grand Final contest, going down by just one point in the final seconds – Woodleigh Wolves 36 lost to Mt Eliza Meteors 37. The Woodleigh Whippets have their Grand Final on Saturday, when they take on the Panthers in the Under 14 Boys C2 decider. Good luck!

Well done to all students, parents, and coaches on a wonderful school and community sport season.
