Schools compete in winter carnivals

June 07, 2017

Increased entries in girls' football was a highlight of the recent Goulburn Murray Division's winter-school winter carnivals.

School sport across the region has been in full swing for the past few weeks.

The Goulburn Murray Division’s recent inter-school winter carnivals had more than 750 Year 9 to 12 students from across 10 schools in the area come together.

Girls football has been the biggest growth area, with entries almost doubling from last season.

‘‘The highlight was the girls’ football carnival, where there was four extra team entries from last year,’’ convenor Paul Cornelius said.

‘‘We had nine teams all up with the standard of the games very good.

‘‘It was terrific to see so many students represent their school enthusiastically in various sports.’’

The aim of the carnivals, which covered six sports, was participation, but there must be a winner and Notre Dame College took the crown — triumphing in seven of 15 categories.

The inter-school cross country carnival was also on recently at Princess Park.

Wanganui Park students swept the trophies, winning the male and female aggregate trophies, and subsequently the overall school champion shield.

The top 15 placegetters from each of the 10 events will progress to the Hume Region Cross Country Carnival in Winton on June 21, while the victorious schools from the winter sports carnival will also move forward for a chance at School Sport Victoria State Championship glory.
