Diocesan AFL

Congratulations to the following girls who participated in the Wollongong Diocesan AFL Girls Championships on 25 October at Monarch Oval, Macquarie Fields.

Mr Baca and Diocesan AFL Team

With a varying level of skill and experience it was always going to be a tough day to compete with the stronger schools within the Diocese. The girls did themselves extremely proud finishing in 4th place in their pool. This enabled them to then go into the play offs where they eventually finished 6th overall.

The day was an excellent opportunity for the girls to gain valuable experience and will prove invaluable for the younger girls in the team who will be able to back up and play again next year. An added bonus to the day was that a number of our girls were identified by the GWS Giants as ‘talented athletes’ and were invited to participate in a physical testing combined with the opportunity to join the Giants representative program in the future.

A big thank you to the GWS Giants for their assistance and expertise on the day as well as to Mr Baca who gave up his time to coach the girls.

The team consisted of the following girls:

Piper A, Annalise D, Bindi F, Sophia S, Tess M, Phillipa M, Jessica A, Chantal M, Sandrine M, Amelia M, Lara M, Darcy E, Sarah P, Italia M, Emily U and Evana S. Coach Mr Baca.
