SATIS Swimming Carnival

What a day for Scotch Oakburn at the SATIS Swimming Carnival held at the Hobart Aquatic Centre this week!

The team had some outstanding individual results with two records:
Taylor Brock, under 15 Girls 100m freestyle beating the 22-year-old record of 1:01.11, swimming a new record time of 1:00.72
Mulford, Skipper, Devin, Atkins, under 15 boys 4x50m freestyle relay in a time of 1:48.94 beating the past record set in 2018 of 1:49.42.

The team results saw us being awarded seven of the nine SATIS shields, along with six of the ten age group pennants. This is a brilliant team effort.

I would like to thank Mrs Jane Gregg for her massive effort organising the team and support to all students along with Ms Julie Kemp for her efforts in supporting the school swimming team.

When you look at 20 schools all competing for the SATIS shields and pennants, to achieve these team results and see the support students of all ages offer each other, it is one of the finest moments in college history.

The end of the NSATIS rosters are fast approaching, with some rosters already completed.

Senior Firsts Boys – Whilst they finished 3rd in their roster, they were only one game out of the Grand Final spot! The boys had many close games with three game margins being within a couple of points. They finished their season with a great win against Marist Regional College of 63 – 36. A huge thank you to Coach, Mr Rick Wyllie for his tireless work during the season.

Senior Firsts Girls – The girls finished their season in 3rd place. They played some great games against very tough North West competition, and secured good wins against St Patrick’s College and Launceston Grammar School during their roster. Thank you to their coach, Mr Malcolm Gardner, for his continued support of this team.

Senior Seconds Boys – The boys are playing some great basketball with one round to go. Unfortunately they are unable to make finals at this point. This term has been a great development roster for all our younger players involved in these teams. A huge thanks to Mr Dylan Warren and Mr Shane Good for their work in coaching both teams.

Senior Seconds Girls – Our Gold team is currently holding first place with one game to go. The last roster match will be played at 5.15pm at St Patrick’s College next week. Our Navy team also has one game to play and will not be displaced from their 3rd place spot. Thank you to Miss Chloe Heather and Miss Lisa Patterson for coaching both these teams.

Senior Thirds – These teams have played very well over their short rosters. We currently have two teams from each of the girls and boys divisions playing off in semi-finals next week. Please check the Basketball Dash Page for upcoming game times. We wish all teams playing in the semi-finals next week the best of luck. Thank you to our thirds coaches for your time with these teams: Mr Dean Draper, Mr Lachie Bremner, Mr Michael Cincotta, Miss Sophie Winter, Miss Kate Wallace and Miss Jordan Holloway-Clarke.

SOC 3×3 Basketball Competition

Our 3×3 weekly competitions for our Year 7 and 8 Boys and Girls culminated in a Grand Finals night on Thursday 24 March. The weekly games were very competitive and it was great to see our more experienced and skilled students helping to develop our younger players throughout these games.

The winning teams from the season competition were: The Grizzlies, Thunder, The Ballers and The Bucks.

I would like to thank Jordan Holloway-Clarke, Sophie Winter, Mr Chris Hills and Mrs Pip Robinson and our Basketball Captains, for assisting with this program.

We now look forward to the upcoming NSATIS finals for our Senior Seconds Girls and Thirds Boys and Girls teams over the next two weeks.
