Mountain Biking

Congratulations to Lachlan Gaden, Year 12, who competed in the 2023 Australian Mountain Biking Interschools at Thredbo during Week 6. Among the 1600 students who competed, Lachlan raced in the Flow, All Mountain, Pump Track and Downhill events. He placed 17/118 in the Flow race following a crash, which also impacted his pump track finals. Lachlan placed 12th in the All Mountain and 7th in the Downhill events. Awesome effort Lachlan!

ASC Touch Football

ASC Touch Football Competition - Girls Year 9/10 Team.

Tuesday, 14 March 2023 marked the inaugural ASC Touch Football Competition. Radford entered two Year 9/10 teams for this first competition: Girls Year 9/10 Team (Alice Berger, Ellie Chapman, Astrid Evans, Zara Hungerford, Chloe Mailler, Hannah Rankin, Madi Scholfield, Poppy Steven and Lily Wickham) and Boys Year 9/10 Team (Benjamin Baker, Lachie Cox, Cameron Hewitson, Finn Hourigan, Jakson Kang, Samuel Lemon, Oliver Luppi, Micah Primrose and Baxter Sicily).

The Girls Team had a tough first game against Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS), going down 8-2. In Round 2, the girls took on John Paul College (JPC) and played a solid game, coming away with a 3-3 draw. In Round 3, the girls played St Clare's College, which played super well and convincingly beat Radford 7-0. In the final round games, Radford played against Canberra Grammar School's (CGS) girls and narrowly lost 4-3. Well done to all the players. We hope to see you back at ASC Touch Football in 2024.

The Boys Team had a strong start in Round 1 against Marist College, with a 4-3 win. In Round 2, the boys convincingly defeated CGS, 4-1. In Round 3, the team came up against a very skilled JPC and were beaten 4-1. In Round 4, the boys played Burgmann College and finished with a convincing 6-1 win, securing themselves a spot in the semi-finals when they played Marist again. Unfortunately, Radford was not able to stay with the Marist boys and went down 5-3.

Congratulations to Ben Baker and Chloe Mailler for being selected in the ASC Super 6 ‘All-Stars’ Team.
