On Tuesday of last week Mr Wellings and Mr Abbott had the pleasure of taking the senior girls rugby league team to a girls gala day at the Croome Rd Sporting Complex in Albion Park. It was our second time attending the event and it was by far the largest girls Gala day since the inception in 2011. We were up against some tough opposition in Kiama High School and Illawarra Sports High in the two pool games.
Although we lost these games against some much stronger competition our girls never gave up and played right until the final whistle.
Our third and final game was against Shoalhaven High School and it was by far our best performance. We scored two great tries and were leading the game going into the second half. Shoalhaven High scored a few early tries in the early stages of the second half and ended up running away with the game. However, it was our best game with great enthusiasm, excellent tackles, positive team talk and a great sense of achievement when the girls walked off the field. Some of the many highlights of the day included: Eboni Fraser's overall excellent play, Leila O'Loughlin's huge tackle and Clare St George's continuous strong runs with the ball in her hands. Mr Wellings and Mr Abbott want to congratulate the girls on their efforts throughout the day and we look forward to taking them again next year.
