Equestrian, by Lee Hogg
After qualifying for the Royal Adelaide Show (her first) Kayla Hogg rode in the 12–18 years junior class. Together with her pony Alcheringa Tradition, aka Cynan, they placed in four of their five rounds, winning the Grand Prix and tying for highest point score. We are proud of this fantastic effort.
Winners are grinners! Radford White had a fantastic win over BAS Zoom in the Cadets Division 3 grand final on Saturday. The match was close until half time with the final margin blowing out to a whopping 14 goals. Congratulations to coach Brooke Smith and the players, who showed tenacity and skill to end up with this great victory!
Eight teams participated in grand finals over the weekend. The U12 Girls Division 4 Penguins played early on Saturday morning and spent most of the game in the lead but ultimately went down by one point. The cheering in the stadium was so loud that we didn’t even hear the final buzzer!
Our top boys team, the U19 Boys Division 1 Heat, won their grand final against Marist by two points. The bleachers were a sea of Radford Year 12 jumpers, creating an electric atmosphere – thank you to all the students and staff who came out to support the boys.
The U19 Girls Division 3 Breakers had a comfortable win over an undefeated Belconnen Ramblers in their grand final on Saturday evening.
