NSWCIS Water Polo Trials 2019

Knox Grammar was host to the NSWCIS Water Polo Trials for 2019. These trials consisted of representative teams from the AAGPS, AICES, ISA and CAS as well as a Barbarians team made up of the four school associations.

The CAS team had diverse representation with athletes from 5 out of the 6 CAS schools selected to represent the association:

This included:

  1. Patrick Hogan (Knox Grammar)
  2. Tyler Krenkels (Knox Grammar)
  3. Gabe Carmody (Knox Grammar)
  4. Lucas Vass (Barker College)
  5. Flynn Lambrechts (Barker College)
  6. Tyrone Albertyn (Barker College)
  7. Zac Spitznagel (St. Aloysius College)
  8. Billy McGuirk (St. Aloysius College)
  9. Reuben Warner Van Dijk (St. Aloysius College)
  10. Kai Young (Trinity Grammar)
  11. Lucas Young (Trinity Grammar)
  12. Tristan Glanznig (Trinity Grammar)
  13. Nikita Strbac (Waverley College)

Furthermore the following boys from CAS schools were selected into the Barbarians team.

  1. Marcus Spano (St. Aloysius)
  2. Sam Jones (St. Aloysius)

The CAS team started the day well with a strong win against AICES with most players finding the back of the net. Strong performances from Tyrone Albertyn (B) both on defence and offense saw the AICES side struggle to get back into the game.

The 2nd game of the day was against a strong and motivated Barbarians side who had given ISA a lot of grief in the game prior. Unlike the first game, this was a tightly contested battle with the Barbarians scoring a late upset goal to tie the game up 3-3. Valiant efforts from Tristan Glanznig (T) and Tyler Krenkels (K) were not unnoticed. Special mention to Sam Jones (A) and Marcus Spano (A) who both had excellent games against CAS.

ISA was up next, and after the disappointing draw to the Barbarians, the CAS boys were eager to impress.  Strong performances across the whole squad showcased the collective capabilities of the team and resulted in a comfortable win for CAS.

The final game for the day was against a strong AAGPS side. With many of the boys from GPS and CAS playing with and against each other in club water polo competitions, bragging rights were up for grabs. Excellent sharpshooting from Nikita Strbac (W) and Lucas Vass (B) kept the GPS players on their toes. Whilst Kai Young (T) worked hard to control the centre the GPS team recognised his threat and defended him with multiple players, restricting him offensively.

This proved to be a smart tactic as the AAGPS team finished victorious over the CAS team.

Following the final game of the day a squad of 13 and a number of reserves were selected for the NSWCIS U17’s team to compete against NSWCCC and NSWCHS later this year.

The squad included a number of CAS athletes including:

NSWCIS Starters

  • Lucas Vass
  • Kai Young
  • Tristan Glanznig
  • Nikita Strbac

NSWCIS Reserves

  • Patrick Hogan
  • Tyler Krenkels
  • Lucas Young

Congratulations to all of the young men who have made section into the NSWCIS U17 squad and we wish you the best in your journey to All School selection.

CAS win the Cross Country Teams Event

In what was expected to be an extremely competitive race there was very little between the CAS and GPS Open Cross Country teams. The results from the season showed that it was going to be to hard to predict a winner before the race with the runners in both teams consistently finishing in the top pack week in week out.

This is how the results of the race finished up.

The scoring system for the race is based on the placings of the first 4 runners from each team. The score was 19-19.  In such a situation the by-laws state that we look at the fourth runner from each team to see which one finished first.  Consequently the CAS were victorious.  CAS def GPS   19 – 19 (on count back). It is the first time since 2003 that CAS has won the event. Well done to all of our runners.

What a great day of racing.

Thanks to Sydney Boys High School for hosting.

CAS U16 Rugby Undefeated at NSWSRU Trials

The CAS U16 Rugby team has gone undefeated at the NSWSRU trials over the weekend. In a strong display in 3 games across the weekend the team posted wins over CCC and CHS and had a draw with GPS Presidents B team to finish 3rd (due to the tournament rules).

In the game against CCC saw CAS win 26 to 12 with tries to Miles Amatosero (W), Lucas Vass (B), and 2 to Jordan Swann (W) Con Lucas Vass (B) and 2 to Mitchell Wheals (B)

The game against GPS Presidents B was an arm wrestle with GPS scoring first which would prove critical for progression in the trial. CAS were down 10-5 at half time with the very strong winds having a major effect on the game. CAS fought back to level the scores however under the tournament rules the first try scorers went through to the Shield Final which meant CAS would play CHS in the John Miller Shield Final. Tries to Luke Hennessy (T) and 2 to Ronald Volkman (W).

In the John Miller Shield final CAS started strongly and were never headed running out winners 29 to 5. Tries to  Ronald Volkman (W), Tyronne Albertyn (B), Ky Willoughby (T), and 2 to Jordan Swann (W) Con 2 to Lucas Vass (B)

CAS 1sts and 2nds Rugby both come anyway with wins

CAS 1sts

CAS 2nds

CAS 1st and 2nds have both posted wins at the NSWSRU open trials on Friday.

In a tough encounter with a very large Combined Catholic Colleges teams the seconds started very strongly scoring 2 tries early. CCC then struck back with a try of their own and a penalty  try. It then each team swapped tries. The second half then became a side to side and end to end feast of running rugby with both teams throwing the ball around. CAS ran out winners 48 to 33 with Tries to Malachi Hawkes (T) x 3, Harry Whiteman (W), Jordan Cameron (B), Soine Vuki (T), Levi Milford (W), Luca Martin(W) Con Daniel Andrews (W) x4.

CAS 1st in their encounter with ISA started very slowly with fatigue a factor after their win against GPS on Tuesday. ISA opened the scoring and were dominating the breakdown in the early exchanges. The CAS forward then started to take control of the game giving their backs so good front football. ISA went to a 12 -10 lead but CAS came back and scored again retaking the lead. ISA weren’t giving up and scored another of their own taking the score to 17 to 15. With minutes left on the clock CAS were awarded a penalty which was kicked to make the score 18 to 17 which was the final score. Tries Harry Flaherty (B), Luke Reimer (B) Tane Edmed (T) PCon Tane Edmed (T)
