Sport - Term 4
Recently Jordan Nguyen (10K2 represented SCHS at the state athletics final for the 15 years boys long jump held at the state athletics centre at Albert Park. He finished a credible 5th and narrowly missed placing in the event. Well done Jordan it is a great achievement qualifying for a state event.

Intermediate Cricket - Girls and Boys Team
Our Suzanne Cory Intermediate cricket team travelled to Maribyrnong compete in the Western Metropolitan Region Semi-Finals. Although our teams did not qualify for the next round which is the State level, we were in high spirits and performed our best. The Girls team went up against Sunbury Secondary College first round and then North Geelong Secondary College. They’ve lost both games as both opposing teams were tough opponents but our girls gave it their all. The Boys team were up against Grovedale Secondary College finishing closely behind them at the end. I was most impressed with our students’ attitude, despite loss from games, demonstrated resilience, motivating themselves to train harder and come back stronger next year. Students also carried themselves with professionalism respecting their opponents, umpires and coaches. I applaud their enthusiasm and the way they represented our school.

Intermediate Hockey - Girls and Boys Team
No wins, but small victories
The intermediate girls team played exceptionally well compared to previous occasions. Anisa Xusen scored the first goal in SCHS history with an assist from Alyssa Steyn. With Ms Breed’s support and guidance along with their team captain, Cindy Luong, the girls concluded the day with a draw against Creekside and a loss of 3-1 against Strathmore. As a team, the girls were able to open many opportunities on the attacking side.
Lead by Ms Fenby, the intermediate boys team played extremely well. Even though they did not manage a win, both games were incredibly close. A 1-0 loss to strathmore was the closest in the school’s history and win was within reach. The day ended with a 3-1 loss to Creekside, where SCHS scored first and had many opportunities throughout the game.
Overall, everyone enjoyed themselves and it was an opportunity for our teams to show their massive improvement since earlier games.
