Geraldine High School 2019 Sports Exchange

On Thursday the 29th of August Geraldine came up to verse us in the annual exchange.

We started off strong with the Basketball Boys A beating Geraldine 121:50, from then on every single game was competitive.


Football Boys - 1:0

Boys Rugby - 12:21

Girls Rugby 27:29

Netball A - 27:25

Netball B - 19:44 

Highlights of the day: 

In basketball, there were over 10 dunks - Enda Brennan, Jacob Davidson and Riley Holland were all throwing it down! 

In boys rugby, Liam Mackechnie intercepted an opposing pass and had an 80 metre run for a try, while in the girls rugby Izzy Scovell stepped up to kick conversions. She converted a couple which is quite an achievement as Izzy is only Year 9! Also in the girls rugby, on her game debut Grace Sutherland, at the halfway line broke through Geraldine’s defense with brute force and outpaced everybody, running half the length of the field to score a try. 

It’s always tough to lose on home soil but Geraldine outclassed us on the day and rightfully regained the shield.  We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
