School Sport Review – Term 4, Week 6

Norwood International High School nm 2018 03 19 0031 1

Week 6 saw our Middle year’s teams competing for the final time bringing closure to the school sporting calendar for 2023. The year was flooded with highlights across both the Summer and Winter seasons, whilst a steady growth in participation emphasised the success of the program.

I would like to extend my personal gratitude to all involved throughout the year, particularly coaches, families and players who have dedicated significant time and effort in contributing to a successful year of sport.

Boys Volleyball

Much like their paired B1 side, the Middle B2 team dropped a stellar performance to secure a dominant victory over Pulteney Grammar School with an overall 10-2 game score. Ian and Anushri starred in the win, highlighting their improvement across the season.

Middle B1 – NIHS def. Adelaide High School (6-4)

The second of the NIHS Middle B1 teams also took to the NIHS theatre of dreams in their quest to end the season on a high with Adelaide High School standing in the way. In what was a close encounter, with many games tightly contested, the team was able to emerge victorious with a 6-4 score line. Tobey and Josh were tireless in their efforts, working the court in both doubles and singles to steer the team home.

Middle B2 – NIHS def. by Adelaide High School (4-6)

The paired B2 team also found themselves in a tough test against the same opponent. Unfortunately, unlike their B1 counterpart, the B2 team fell agonisingly short of a result, going down 4-6 in total games, fought hard but fell short against Adelaide High School, concluding with a score of 4-6. Savar and Saxon were rewarded for their strong effort in being named as best players.

Girls’ Basketball

Year 8/9B – NIHS def. by Sacred Heart College (24-26)

It was a nail-biter in the final round of the Middle Girls’ Basketball fixture against Sacred Heart College with a tight encounter leaving fans on the edge of their seats across the four quarters. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be for the girls in terms of end result, however the fighting spirit demonstrated is evidence of the team’s steep improvement across the season. Despite the result, Mia and Natalie shot their way to best player’s recognition, topping off a strong season.

Girls Volleyball
