The Touch Football team of Bayley, Toby, Jacinda, Tarsha and Grace competed at the NSW Combined High Schools 15s Touch Football Tournament for the Hunter Region.
Tomaree High School Principal Susan Xenos told News of The Area, “The girls team were runners up whilst the boys missed the final.
“Congratulations to all those students and particularly Tarsha who was selected in the NSW Combined High Schools team and she will play at the NSW All Schools Tournament later this term, Well done!”
While the touch teams were playing football the runners were taking off in the Cross Country Zone Carnival.
“The runners have done their school proud yet again, out of the 47 runners, Tomaree High School had 40 qualify for the Hunter Carnival with top 10 positions.”
The Zone Champions were Claudia Samoilenko (14 Years), Logan Stewart (15 Years) and Tia Shiner (16 Years).
“All of the students were exemplary in their behaviour and represented their school beautifully, we were super proud to be associated with such an excellent group of young people,” she said.
Also doing well were the Tomaree High School surfers who also competed at the Regional Championships.
Ellie Clayton-Brown won the U19 Girls, Michael Clayton Brown placed second in the U16 Boys and Ellie Clayton-Brown and Charli Law combined to win the U19 Girls Team.
The under 14’s and under 16’s went to Lakeside to take part in the Annual Knights KO.
The under 14’s were unlucky not to win a game losing two games after the full-time siren had sounded.
The under 16’s got off to a flyer beating Irrawang and St. Joseph’s to set up a grand final match with Mt. View.
They went close on several occasions but unfortunately went down by one try.
Every student involved should be proud of their efforts in the Knights KO.
The whole school offers their congratulations to everyone who competed and to those who qualified for the next level of competition in their sport.
