BASKETBALL - COMETS - 15 MAY 2017

This week was a new grading week and the Comets did not win their game. We were a few players down through injury, so this didn’t make it any easier.  However the Comets did their usual thing, and tried their very best.  Better luck next time, Comets!
Player of the Day this week was Josh Hill. Well done, Josh!

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 15 MAY 2017

The Rockets miniball team had a tricky match this week, losing 13-3. The opposition were good interceptors which made it difficult for the Rockets to score.  The Rockets began to make a comeback during the second half, when they improved their passing and started to get faster at getting the ball down the court and to our goal.
Eli Fitzpatrick won Player of the Day this week. Well done Eli, what a great effort on your first game!

NETBALL - YEARS 5& 6 WENTWORTH STARS - 15 MAY 2017

Thursday night's game was the second game of the season for the Wentworth Stars Netball team.  Our defensive and attacking game still needs alot of work, however this team shows a lot of promise!  Players of the Day were Bethany Smith for her listening skills and Rory Brabant for his brilliant defensive work.

NETBALL - YEARS 5&6 - 8 MAY 2017

Well, what a first game!
Unlike a lot of the teams who will be playing this season, Wentworth starts each season with a whole new team. Some of our players have never played netball before so it was super to see how well we all worked together. We had some great passing, and our netballers worked together like they had always been a team.
We had two players of the day - Emily Treble for a fantastic, intuitive first game, and Bridie Smith, for her great passing and "give it a go" attitude. Well done to you both!
Although we didnt have a win this week, I cannot wait to see how the Wentworth Stars progress throughout the season. Netball trainings will be at lunchtime on Mondays & Thursdays.  Please bring your PE kit and netball shoes to train in. Thank you!

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 5 & 6 - 8 MAY 2017

This was the first game of the season. The team have four new players who hadn’t played before and their goal was to have fun. The defenders had a good first game.  They were able to stop the opposition from getting into position to take too many shots at goal. The strikers communicated well and passed between each other, looking for space and shooting opportunities. The final result was 8-1 to Wentworth. Player of the Day was Charlotte Sancto-Jones for her strong role as midfielder, and her ability to chase down the ball and create shooting opportunities.
Training for the both the Years 3/4 and Years 5/6 Flippa Ball teams will take place on Fridays at the Leisure Centre from 4:00 to 5:00pm.

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 3 & 4 - 8 MAY 2017

On Sunday night the Years 3/4 team had their first game of Flippa Ball of the year. They all played so well and we are so proud of them. Throughout the game we could see their confidence and knowledge of the game building. We won 6-0 which was such a good confidence builder for the team. Player of the Day went to Ben Rist as he stood out with his ball skills, helping the other players and shooting goals. We are so proud of them and can't wait to see them progress over the terms. Lara McColl and Kate Haggerty are the Student Coaches.

BASKETBALL - COMETS - 10 APRIL 2017

The Comets were up against it last week when they faced their more experienced opposition.  Whilst they didn't come away with a win, their general attacking play was slick and showed great skill.  Unfortunately the ball would not drop into the hoop and they were unable to hold onto the game.  Player of the Day went to Jared Davies.  A great effort by all and we are looking forward to following this team next term.

MINIBALL - ASTEROIDS - 10 APRIL 2017

It was an exciting match on Tuesday evening when the Asteroids took to the court.  The game was close with both teams having good scoring opportunities.  Unfortunately the scoreboard did not reflect the hard fought game played by the Asteroids, but all agreed that it was an excellent team match!  Player of the Day went to Charlotte Sancto-Jones who executed a Kobe Bryant 360 degree turn to evade her opposition.  Fabulous effort Charlotte!

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 10 APRIL 2017

The Rockets had a tough outing last week. however the second half of the game saw them pull together as a team and play with cohesion and improved skill.  We look forward to watching these players develop their understanding and group dynamic next term.  Player of the Day went to Jessica Rensen.  An excellent game Jessica - you are continuing to improve each week!

INTERSCHOOLS SWIMMING

Inter-schools Swimming
Our top swimmers in Years 5 and 6 attended the Inter-schools Swimming Tournament at Northern Arena last week, competing against swimmers from all over the Hibiscus Coast and from as far away as Warkworth.

BASKETBALL - COMETS - 3 APRIL 2017

Although the Comets played a fantastic, defensive game in their first half this week, they sadly couldn’t hold off the opposition during the action packed second half, and they sadly suffered a shattering defeat at the hands of the Stanmore Bay Skyhawks.
Josh Hill was awarded the Player of the Day this week. Well done to you, Josh!
Mrs Clark

MINIBALL - ASTEROIDS - 3 APRIL 2017

Humid weather saw the court full of sweaty red faced Asteroids on Tuesday afternoon.  A lapse in energy meant the Asteroids struggled to reach their usual great heights, however the first half score remained close, with the players showing moments of absolute brilliance!  Annabelle Duncan, our Player of the Day, demonstrated one of these brilliant moments when she dribbled the ball three quarters of the court with confidence, speed and focus.  Annie is also doing an excellent job of keeping her feet planted before passing the ball.  Congratulations Annie!  Keep working hard Asteroids; you are an exciting new team and so much fun to watch on game day!
Mrs Clark

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 3RD APRIL 2017

Wentworth Rockets
This week was a tough week for the Rockets, who suffered a (small) loss at the hands of the Red Beach Solars. Amy Akehurst won Player of the Day this week for making some great passes as well as minimising our loss with some brilliant defending. This is a skill which Amy has been displaying on the court all term. Well done, Amy!

WEETBIX KIDS TRYATHLON - SUNDAY 26 MARCH 2017

This year saw another great Primary turnout for the Weetbix TRYathlon at Manly yesterday. Twenty young athletes swam, biked and ran their way around a gruelling course, cheered on by parents and by top sporting stars, such as Eliza McCartney. A huge congratulations to all our children  - you were fabulous and earned those medals!

BASKETBALL - COMETS - 27 MARCH 2017

The Comets were unfortunately outplayed by their opposition this week. Our defence was tenacious, however the other team was too often able to make penetrating passes that took them up court to score. Austin shot another of his famous high and long balls to score in the first half, and Joshua showed his strength in holding possession of the ball and driving up the court. Rory did a great job under the basket in winning numerous rebounds and then getting out. Alex and Ben both never stopped running and going after the ball which was great to see.
Corbus Luke was Player of the Day (again!) due to his determination and never ending chasing of the ball carrier.
