Sports News

Siena College has had a busy start to Term 4 GSV Sport, fielding several teams in Cricket, Water Polo and Basketball. Our Cricket teams have had mixed results so far, with the Junior team (pictured) overcoming Ruyton Girls’ School, while falling just short against Lauriston Girls’ School, losing by two runs in the last over. Our Junior Water Polo teams have had several weeks of training with an enthusiastic squad and have their first round of game this week. Our Basketballers continue to produce promising results, the standout teams so far have been the Junior B and C teams, which have won of all their games and currently sit first in their zones. 

On Saturday, 20 October, Siena College Sport was on full display at our annual Open Day, with the final of the Tennis tournament and a number of Aerobics routines. Many prospective parents and students toured the College and were able to familiarise themselves with Siena’s sports facilities and GSV program. The final sporting event for the year, the Celebration of Sport Evening, will be held in December, where we will recognise the amazing sporting achievements of our students. 

There are a number of individual sporting achievements to note:

  • Emer McGing, who finished as the National Champion in the Junior Ladies 17 Years Championships at the Australian Irish Dancing National Championships in Cairns. An outstanding achievement!
  • Victoria Zikas, Johanna Zikas and Laura Griss participated for the GSV Representative Soccer team at the Interstate Challenge competition in the Gold Coast. They won all four games against representative state teams to win the whole tournament. 

Many thanks to Johanna Zikas and Chloe Dang for their efforts as Siena College Sports Captains for 2018, we wish them all the best for the future. I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome the 2019 Siena College Sports Captains: Monica Ciampa and Melitta Allen.
