It has been a great few weeks for Newington sport with some impressive performances particularly in Swimming, Tennis and Water Polo.
The 2017 AAGPS Swimming Championships concluded the Summer Sports Season. The final placings were:
|7th||Sydney Boys High||282|
|5th||Sydney Boys High||268|
|6th||Sydney Boys’ High||354|
We would like to acknowledge all the boys who participated in the 2017 season and represented themselves and the College in such fine style. To Mr Ryan Moar and his team, we thank you for your time and efforts over the season.
Three Newington Tennis players were selected to represent CIS at the NSW All Schools tennis trials in Bathurst last week, Mark Papadopoulos (12/LE), Jun Sasagawa (11/LE) and Paul Howe (11/ME). We believe this is the first time three Newington boys have gone to the Pizzey Cup trials.
Mark Papadopoulos saved seven match points in his last match to win and gain selection in the NSW All School team. Jun and Paul were eliminated in their last match. Jun, however, was selected as a reserve for the team.
All three boys were selected to play for GPS, against CAS. Unfortunately, Jun and Paul could not take their place in the team due to injury and illness respectively. Mark did play for the GPS 1sts, who defeated CAS, 17 matches to 1, to win the John Brown trophy.
Congratulations boys on your achievements.
Two Newington Water Polo players were selected to represent CIS at the recent NSW All Schools Water Polo Championships. Harry Dickens (12/LE), and Matthew Sharpe (11/MA) both played pivotal roles in CIS reaching the final which they lost to CHS. At the conclusion of the tournament Harry and Matthew were selected in the NSW All Schools team to contest the National Championships in May.
Congratulations to Harry and Matthew on your selection.
