Soccer – SSV state finals

The BSSC boys soccer team finished third in their pool at the SSV State Finals in Melbourne. They went down 3 – 0 to Roxburgh College, 2 – 1 to Copperfield College (goal to September Kawmar), before finishing with a great 2 – 1 win over Mount Clear College (goals to Jesse Parker and Kyle Smith). The standard of play at this year’s State Finals was exceptionally high, and the BSSC boys were very competitive in all their games and should be extremely proud of their performance on the day. They had great support on the day from EAL VCAL students who travelled to Melbourne with the team.

Athletics season approaching

Bendigo Harriers Athletics Club is looking to recruit people for athletics. The club has two points of focus – pole vault and winter pre-season.

The pole vault is a highly specific event, but Bendigo has always been well represented at State and National level. The club is looking for strong, athletic people. Height certainly helps, as does speed, but the club can work with anyone who is keen. It’s quite a technical event, but a background in gymnastics, tumbling, diving, or other spatial awareness activities is a plus.

The winter pre-season is for winter sport enthusiasts (football, soccer, netball) who might wish to improve running ability.

If you are interested in pole vault or the winter pre-season (or any other form of athletics), please contact Brett Gilligan on 0407 534 742. Coaching takes place on Tuesday and Thursday nights from about 4:30 pm.
