Football

Mr Kai Lammert, Head Coach Football

1st XI blitz tournament against Cranbrook
A beautiful Saturday morning saw our 1st XI squad travel out to Cranbrook for the Inaugural Blitz Football tournament on Saturday 25 March. First up was Trinity and after a tough 30 minutes saw Knox coming out on top with a win, 1-0. The winning goal came of a corner from Alex Duffy and was converted by Lincoln Tasker-Hughes.

Next up was St Aloysius and the Knox boys added another clean sheet to the tally winning, 1-0, thanks to a great free kick from Hugo Forlico. Barker College was the next and possibly our best game. The boys showed some great football winning, 4-1 (Ben Biggs 2, Ed Yoong 2). Our last game was against Waverley and the boys lost, 0-1, in a very close encounter.

A great start to the pre-season by our Knox team and we are all looking forward to our first CAS game against Cranbrook under lights on Friday 28 April.

Sailing

Knox sailing announced the winners of its Knox Sailing Supporters Annual Perpetual Trophy at the yearly awards on Saturday 18 March. The trophy recognises the skipper and crew with the best fleet racing results over 46 races in the summer sport sailing season.

For the second year in a row, Evan Gauci has steered the winning boat to claim the prize, and it is Tom O’Sullivan’s (Year 8) first year as the winning crew. It was tight competition as always with Toby Wilson being runner up this year, just one race win behind Evan where as in 2016, both were tied for 1st place with the deadlock being broken on count back. Congratulations to these boys on earning the highest place results.
