I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the Genesis families for your support this year with the College Secondary Sport program. This has been a challenging and unprecedented year and your patience and understanding with the changing landscape of sport in 2020 is valued and appreciated. Whilst this has been a disappointing year with a number of sports not being able to take place, the resilience and character of our Genesis students has shone through. A special thank you to all the coordinators of sport, teaching staff, outside coaches, parent and student volunteers and House Captains for all your efforts. I hope and pray that you have a restful break with your families and looking forward to 2021 as we launch our new sport program in the College.
Equestrian – Qld State Interschool Championship Results 2020
Congratulations to Freya K and Morgan L for their achievements in being selected for the Queensland Equestrian Team. This is a tremendous achievement and we hope that next year there will be the opportunity to take part in the National Championships which were unfortunately cancelled this year due to COVID.
Genesis students competed at the All Schools Qld Triathlon Championships which were held at Kawana on Sunday 25 October. The placings of students are as follows.
These students have all been selected to take part in the State Triathlon Championships in Hervey Bay from the 11-13 February as part of the Met North Team. Hayley W will also be taking part in an upcoming event at Runaway Bay as part of the Triathlon Queensland development program.
Kate C has been selected to be a member of the Queensland School Sport 13-19 Years merit team for Triathlon in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Queensland teams will not be competing at any higher competition in 2020. Congratulations to Kate with this achievement in Triathlon this year.
Queensland Reds Rugby Sevens Tournament
After around 6 weeks of training, Genesis competed in the Queensland Reds Rugby Sevens tournament and played against 5 other schools. The boys played games against Matthew Flinders, West Moreton Anglican College, North Lakes State College, Sunshine Coast Grammar School and St. James College. The boys won one game which was an excellent effort coming off limited training. Every student in the team showed a committed to training and gave 110% in each and every game. A special thank you to Queensland Reds development coach, Andrew Chapman from the Albany Creek Brumbies, Tim Walker (Rugby Coordinator), Johnny Caldeira-Santos and Bruce McDougall (coaches) for all their efforts with preparing the students for the tournament. Without these dedicated people, it would have been impossible to develop the Rugby program this year. Well done to all the players:
Ben M (Captain), Jake S (Vice Captain), Zac C, Tyler L, Lachlan H, Daniel T, William P, Alex C, Coach (Bruce McDougall)
Jaeve P and Ella S (Year 11) were recently presented with their Queensland representative suits from Rowing Queensland for their outstanding achievement of being selected in the Queensland team. Well done to Jaeve and Ella for their selection.
The “come and try” days for Rowing were successful with several students attending the sessions to experience the sport for the first time. We look forward to next year with the rowing program in the College and thank you to Ashley Smith (Rowing Coordinator) and the Pine Rivers Rowing Club for their support of the Genesis Rowing program.
