Co-curricular in the Junior Years
Rostrevor's Year 4 Cricket team came up against Marryatville Primary School in its first game of the season. Students were excited to be back and hit the ground running with some strong contributions all round. The team's excitement and desire to celebrate each other's success after taking a wicket or making a great play in the field was wonderful to see. Nicholas Furst starred with the ball and took a game-high four wickets.
The Year 5 Red Cricket team faced St Ignatius at home on the Yertabiritti Womma Oval. Archah Parisi backed up his 46 n/o in the first game of the term with another 25 n/o. Zack Faraonio also impressed with the bat, scoring 25 n/o. Advit Kothari and Ryan Hanatschek bowled well for Rostrevor, each with two wickets.
Year 5/6 White Tennis team enjoyed an away trip to the Walkerville Lawn Tennis Courts to face St Andrew's. It took the team a few points to adjust to the pace and speed of the lawn courts but the team enjoyed some of their best Tennis for the year. The contest was very evenly matched up with Rostrevor narrowly winning 5 - 4 (sets). Notably, Toby Papps very admirably provided leadership and guidance to his teammates throughout the contest.
The Year 7 Basketball competition recommenced in Week 2 with four Rostrevor teams doing battle each Wednesday afternoon in the Purton Hall. With each of the teams adopting the names of popular NBA franchises, the Year 7 Lakers claimed its first win against the Heat 30-23 in its first contest. Archer McNamara was the star for the Lakers on both ends of the court. The other match between the Blazers and the Nuggets was a thriller. Trailling all game, the Blazers fought their way back and Sam Carey's 3-pointer put his team in front with just seconds left. The Blazers claimed a hard fought 26-23 victory.
Rostrevor's Year 2/3 Black team enjoyed a good contest against Trinity Tigers in their midweek, Tuesday afternoon contest held at the ARC. The team welcomed the inclusion of Sidney McDonald in his first Basketball game in the Red and Black. Sidney contributed strongly throughout the game, as did Sahyl Soodan who played possibly his best Basketball game for Rostrevor with a number of pivotal steals and defensive plays that helped his team.
The Junior Years Athletics team continues its preparations for the upcoming Catholic Schools Athletics Competition on November 6. Students have been building their endurance for track events on Thursday mornings before school. We wish the team all the best for the competition and look forward to hearing how they fared.
It was mixed fortunes on the pitch for the First XI against Sacred Heart on the weekend with a dominant win in the T20 - led by batsmen Sam Rahaley and Jake Slivak and bowler Luke Homan - followed by a disappointing loss in the Shield match on Saturday.
Congratulations to our newest players, Tom Laas, Jed Burton and Kye Butler who were officially presented with their First XI player caps by Rostrevor's Director of Boarding, Mr Michael Vickery. See Messenger Bowl and Messenger Shield match reports by First XI Coach Bill Trewartha here.
Congratulations to Year 9 Aspen Davis who helped his side to an exciting win over Sacred Heart in his debut match for the 9A team. Rostrevor's brilliant run chase was capped off by Aspen who scored a boundary with two balls to spare, ensuring the win.
