ASC Girls Hockey
On Friday 16 August, 18 Radford girls from Years 10-12 competed in the Year 11-12 ASC Girls Hockey Competition. The girls were exceptional examples of competitiveness mixed with sportsmanship. They finished the day with 1 win, 2 draws, 2 defeats and placed 3rd overall. A huge thank you to Ms Clark Wellington for coaching the girls.
The weekend basketball matches saw the Radford U10 Butterflies take on the Radford Dolphins. It was a fast-paced game with some wonderful teamwork, defence and offence moves being demonstrated. All the girls are certainly enjoying their winter season of basketball.
U9 Boys - Unfortunately the U9 boys went down to the Queanbeyan Whites 20 – 30.
U18 Girls - A low-scoring game for the Radford U18 Girls, with a win against Royals 7 - 0
U18 Boys - An outstanding game of rugby by the boys. Going into half time 21-7 down, the team dominated the second half and came back to 21-all with 10 min to play. The final score was 21-21.
