Last Saturday saw the Prep school restart their summer season with round 7 and for the majority of senior school they had their last trials before the commencement of the 2016-2017 season starting this coming Saturday.

It was a great opportunity to look at selections and provide students with the opportunity to move between teams and to see where they are at with their skills and team playing. The 1sts, 2nds and 10A and 9A cricket were in competition games against Cranbrook with the 1sts securing a good win.

Last Saturday also saw the U17 CAS Water polo trials held at Knox and with 5 students making the North Harbour team, 4 of these were then selected to represent the CIS in the CIS Championships in Term 1. I congratulate those boys and wish them all the best next year.

I also congratulate all those students involved in the NSW All Schools Track and Field championships with many of our athletes participating and not only achieving Personal Best’s but also medals. I congratulate those who have been selected for the Australian All Schools at the end of term.

I remind all students that attendance at sport is compulsory and if they are unable to attend they need to email staff before their non-attendance to ensure that rolls are marked correctly. Also please ensure that the correct attire is worn and turn up with a positive attitude as has been and is the Knox way.

I wish you all the best this Saturday and go the Black and Blue.

Basketball

Ms Ellie Manou, MIC Basketball

On Saturday Knox versed Riverview for some trial games before the CAS season tips off. There were also a number of internal matches which were used to further grade our players.

Riverview have a strong basketball program and matched up with our boys very well especially in the Opens group which saw Knox finish with a 6 win, 2 draw and 6 loss record. Our 1st’s had already faced Riverview in a preseason game in term 3 which saw them losing by 17 points and eager for redemption. After a shaky start with some easy shots missed Riverview had taken control of the game early. Knox were able to compose themselves and made a valiant comeback but went down in the end 65-70. Harry Price and Jack Puncher did a fantastic job off the bench contributing some valuable minutes to the team. Our 2nd's have had a great preseason showing form in the holiday tournament but struggled defensively against an impressive Riverview side going down 41-58. The boys need to regroup and work on their rebounding and defensive containment this week at training.

The Year 10’s faced a strong Riverview group and finished with a 1 win, 1 draw and 4 loss record. The A’s team missed some easy buckets which hurt them in the end as they lost 32-35. The B’s dominated their game winning 51-21 with Matt Hely doing a fantastic job under the rim. Special mention to the F’s who played a fantastic team game but just went down in the final seconds of the game (34-35).

Year 9 dominated across the board sweeping the entire age group 6-0. The A’s won 43-28 with an impressive offence display from Josh Pain while the B’s won 31-11. The D’s had the stand out game of the year group winning 77-13. The remainder of our teams played in some closely contented internal fixtures which saw the boys playing hard and fair against their mates. Harry Taylor of the 9I’s won the Knox Basketball award for his hustle and playing hard (pictured).

Year 8 had a great round finishing with a record of 4-2. The A’s went down in a closely contested battle 31-33 while the B’s won 24-18. The game of the round goes to the 8F’s who won 74-5! The year group also played some very exciting internal matches. Special mention to Hughie Ord in the L’s who had 6 points in his first ever basketball game. 

The entire program performed well against a strong Riverview program with 17 wins, 3 draws and 11 losses. Congratulations to all boys who competed in our Riverview and competitive internal games on the weekend.

Cranbrook will be our first round opponents in the CAS this weekend. The matchup between Cranbrook and Knox will be exciting to watch. Our Opens and 8’s are at home while our 10’s and 9’s will be away. We strongly encourage all students to unite as our 6th man and go rally behind our 1st (11:15am) and 2nds (10:00am).

Cricket

Mr Ian Butler, 1sts Cricket Coach

1st XI
A tough day was always on the cards as Cranbrook looked to chase down Knox’s first innings of 334/8 declared.
Some disciplined batting from Finbar Stenmark (119) Walton (38), and Halliday (27 saw Cranbrook put on 182 runs for their 6th and 7th wicket partnerships. This meant Knox were forced to toil in the heat all day without much visual reward off the wicket! The second new ball proved the difference as Nic Gallu finished off the innings at 266, to finish with 6-52 off 21 overs, a superb performance on debut! Jack Hoyle took 2-59 and Todd Anderson did a brilliant job tying down one end and took the crucial wicket of Stenmark LBW when the game was in the balance. The bowling group worked tirelessly together and did a superb job. Having a demanding day in the field will be hugely beneficial to us as we take on Barker next week.

2nd XI
Conditions from Week 1 to Week 2 could not have been a bigger contrast, with a cold and windy week 1 as opposed to a hot week 2. The 2nd’s started a long day in the field with an outstanding catch in the gully from Tom Moscou from the bowling of Stephan Du Plooy who’s opening spell put shivers down the backs of his opponents. Felix Walsh bowled well in very difficult condition to finish with figures of 0/29 from 14 overs. On such a good batting wicket he should be congratulated for his efforts. Hamish Cole identified that spin was not the preferred bowling style of the Cranbrook batsman and when Tom Moscou made it spin from both ends we looked very threating. Tom bowled very well and was rewarded with solid figures of 2/17 from 13 overs, which included 5 maiden overs. Hamish’s figures were pleasing 0/17 from 7 overs, however his highlight was a fantastic catch from Tom Moscou’s bowling. Tim Fisher was Mr Consistency with figures of 0/8 from 8 overs, always making the batsman play and think, which always gave us hope of a wicket. Other congratulation must go to Alex Doling-Cook and Sam Chapman who backed up their performance in week 1 with the bat by bowling crucial overs throughout the day.
 
A special mention must go to Pat O’Day who stepped up in our hour of need. With very few opportunities to bowl or bat he demonstrated an outstanding attitude and willingness to help his team mates out. His ability to remain focused and ready for every delivery is a credit to himself. Well done!
 
Although a draw was not the ideal outcome at the start of the day each and every player should be very pleased with their individual efforts, their ability to maintain focus throughout a very long and hot day in the field and the teams desire to perform for each other.
 
A solid start to the CAS season which should give us confidence to move forward.  Well Done!

3rd XI
The 3rd XI this week had a hard fought win over St Ignatius College’s 3rd XI. Knox batted first and Tom Lee and Oliver Graham got the team off to a great start with a solid opening partnership of 30 before Tom was dismissed. Knox went into the drinks break after 16 overs at 3-64. Oliver had a phenomenal innings building partnerships with a number of boys until he was finally dismissed in the 26th over for 69. It was at this point where Zatz and Rahul came in a helped the team get a few quick runs with Zatz scoring a fast 19 and Rahul batting out the rest of the overs and finishing on 27 not out. The second half of Knox’s innings was definitely a stronger one with regards to the run rate as Knox managed to bat out the overs and finish on 8/179. 

Stuart got us off to a great start bowling one of their opening batsman out for 0. Their third batsman and the other opener built a bit of momentum until a fantastic run out from Stuart broke that partnership. Riverview then again got momentum as their middle order batsman built a very big partnership slowly chasing down the Knox total. They went into the break only 4 down with 87 runs. James Meldrum and Zatz had a very big impact in Riverview’s middle order batsman restricting runs and getting crucial wickets. Zatz finished with the best figures of 2-17 off 3 overs whilst Meldrum, Stuart, Lees and Loong all got one wicket each. It came down to the final over where Riverview needed 8 runs to win with 2 wickets in hand. Hodge had a fantastic final over restricting them to 175 and giving Knox their first win of the Season.

4th XI 
4th had a convincing win over Riverview. Riverview won the toss and decided to bowl first. Jack Hennessy opened the batting for Knox and scored a commanding 67. Jack was finally dismissed when caught rather fortunately from the bowler. A number of batsmen held their own for the 4th sticking around making it tough for St Ignatius bowlers to dismiss them. It was also difficult for the Knox batsmen to add to the score line in many occasions as the second highest scorer for Knox was through wide deliveries. 
Knox fielded admirably at had a number of bowlers of note. Luke Bray finished with figures of 4 wickets from 5 overs conceding 21 runs. Finn Douglas got 2 wickets from his 4 overs and conceded an impressive 5 runs. Joe Hedley also got 2 wickets from 3 overs and conceded only 9 runs. 
Over all a solid performance from the Knox boys. 

10A
Knox came out of the blocks with the intent to put Cranbrook under early pressure. Credit must go to Cranbrook’s openers who, after weathering the storm last Saturday got the home side off to a steady start. Karthik Surendra was the pick of the bowlers (with figures of 1/16 off 9) and eventually trapped one in front to leave them 1/31 shortly after the first drinks break. Knox were unable to wrestle back the momentum as two of Cranbrook’s batsmen passed 50 and another went on to score a blistering century; causing mayhem for drivers passing through on Victoria Road. They eventually passed Knox’s score in the 49th over with 2 wickets down and batted through to take first innings points (finishing 3/254 after 58 overs).  Defending 147 on a very good deck was always going to be a difficult task. The boys toiled admirably but unfortunately some loose bowling and spilled chances came back to hurt us in the end. Credit must go to Cranbrook on a comprehensive performance in all facets of the game. Knox will look forward to the chance at bouncing back next week after a good week of training. 

10B
Knox 10B’s had the tough challenge of taking on Riverview 10A’s. This proved a baptism of fire with Knox being bowled out for 59, only Jamie Cerezo (24) was able to cope with the intensity of the opposition bowling. The quality of opposition batting showed as they chased down the target for the loss of 1 wicket in 15 overs. A big week of training will see this side bounce back no doubt!

10C
Knox dismissed Riverview for 142 with Michael Adams 2-10, Lucas Chamen 2-24 including a dropped catch off his hat-trick ball! Ollie Harding then compiled a hard hit 46, Michael Adams (24) figured in two partnerships to guide Knox home for the loss of 5 wickets with Jacques Du Plooy striking the ball cleanly in a quick fire 20 not out to close the game. A fantastic start to the season and thanks to the boys from Year 8 who stepped up to form this strong side!

9A
Day 2 saw Knox in pursuit of 152 after being 2-48 overnight. Needing only another 105 runs with 8 wickets in hand, the chase should have been fairly standard. Unfortunately the loss of early wickets halted momentum and poor shot selection following put Cranbrook in the box seat to claim an unlikely victory. Oliver Penn (22) and Naganayagam (28) were the only batsmen to get a start. Knox were bowled out for 102 within the first hour of play, handing the win to Cranbrook. 

9B
The 9B's won the toss against Riverview and elected to bat first. The openers began positively however lost an early wicket. A strong partnership formed between Dan Mulcahy and Hamish Quigley however poor shot selection saw Hamish and shortly after Henry Roberts dismissed. The theme of poor shot selection and good quality bowling saw Knox be 7/88 after 23 overs. However a late partnership between Alex Delaine and Jack Delaney helped Knox to finish their 32 overs all out for 145. Special mention goes to Dan Mulcahy with his 42 and Jack Delaney's late 27.

Riverviews batting innings began very poorly with Adi Srivatsan taking three wickets within his first two opening overs. But overall, the Knox bowlers began by consistently bowling full and straight and attacking the stumps. The consistency of bowling dropped slightly however Knox continued to take wickets and ended dismissing Riverview all out for 70. Notable bowling efforts went to Adi Srivatsan who ended with figures of 3-7 off 3 overs and Jack Delaney who took 3-6 off 4 overs.

9C & 9D Internal Trial
The first match of the new season for the 9Cs and 9Ds was a match against their fellow counterparts. The Cs batted first with a notable opening stand from Jono Cole followed up by Hamish Wood, Rhys Owen and Liam Serra all making contributions to the team’s total score of 7/147. Comparatively the Ds put up a strong fight in their bowling with Hamish O’Reilly and Dominic Singarayar most impressive in pinning down the Cs batting attack.
The Ds then went into bat where a slow start to the innings changed as Winston Lian, Will Lovell and Henry Hill began to take the game to the Cs coming close to catching them with a final total of 7/130. The Cs meanwhile managed to limit the run-scoring with Harrison LeBoursicot, Dylan Campbell and Rishikesh Deshpande most effective in this regard.
It was a close game that will hopefully serve well as a spot of a match practice ahead of the beginning of the season. 

8A
The 8As made their way to Riverview for their first warm up game. Winning the toss on a dead wicket was a blessing and a curse. Tom (36) our opener started off well but got himself out but set a platform to follow. Avo in number 3, started off slowly but worked towards a solid 53. Everyone was well supported by Will Feather who started blasting them everywhere around Riverview. It all combined to make 161. 
Chasing 162 for victory, Riverview never really got going. Halted by our new players Marlon Dosanjh (1-14 off 5) and Campbell Wilson (4-7 of 3.4). Some excellent back up from, Will Aylward and Jack Copeland helped keep Riverview to a mere 121. It was a great start to the season by the boys who opted to be serious in their batting and use the bowling as a good way to see where they are all at. I am very confident that this season will be a great start for the boys are they start to head up into the higher teams and leagues.

8B
Riverview won the toss and elected to bat first. Riverview's opening partnership proved to be a steady one despite good and consistent bowling from Knox. Jackson Young made the crucial breakthrough with a cracking delivery which saw the Riverview batsman knick one through to the keeper. Jack Wormald laid the platform for the rest of the innings with impressive figures of 0/1 off three overs. Aaron Erdstein's ability to upset the opposition was on full display when he grabbed 3 wickets in as many overs. The batting collapse which ensued saw Riverview lose its last 5 wickets for only 2 runs, resulting in an innings total of 82.
Knox's efforts with the bat were just as impressive as its bowling and fielding. Andrew Jenkins and Jack Craig got our innings off to a beautiful start, racing away to 57 after only 8 overs. From here on in it was smooth sailing for the boys in black and blue, with Tobey Finegan adding the finishing touches to get us home within 15 overs. The final scorecard told of a compelling 8 wicket victory by Knox. 
This was a dominant performance by the boys and a great start for what I am sure will be a successful season for the 8B's!

8C
Batting in pairs for 4 overs in our opening trial game against Riverview, Knox finished on 5/148 off 23 overs thanks to a chanceless and powerful unbeaten 32 runs by Jack Kirk, a patient 27 by captain Max Pike and cameos of 16 and 14 by Angus Gray and Robbie Ferguson. Riverview were dismissed 17 times for 67 runs, thanks to some outstanding bowling by Cam Stocks (3/4), Ethan Jones (2/1) and Nick Shannon (3/1) who also contributed an outstanding catch and two run outs for a man of match performance. 

8D
Knox 8D's faced Shore 8C's in today's match with Shore electing to bat first. The Knox boys bowled well, continuing their good work from their net sessions. The first wicket was bowled by Angus Rich, with captain Michael Raymond taking a lovely catch in cover. After drinks the Knox boys really picked up the pace and annihilated the Shore middle order, with Will Tighe, James Tighe, Ethan Ang  and Zac Scott all grabbing wickets. Some wonderful bowling saw Mitch Penn, Zac Scott and James Tighe all bowl a maiden over each. Shore finished with a strong 6/163 after 32 overs, but Knox were eager to chase down the target. Great batting performances from Angus Rich (26 not out), Ethan Ang (21 not out) and Ben Napton (20) helped the chase, but unfortunately Knox fell short by 52 runs, as we were bowled out for 111 in 30 overs. Overall, the match was a great introduction to the season for all the boys, and hopefully throughout the next week we can learn from these experiences and hopefully get a win in the next match.

Fencing

The boys were taken through some footwork exercises and given some tips on executing forward and backward steps.
Half steps are a good way to break up predictability and cause an element of surprise to opponents. The correct way to execute  lunges was also reviewed as it is important to remain balanced and focused, ready to attack or defend if the lunge was not successful. A demonstration on ripostes was given noting that a well executed  parry must be immediately followed by a riposte otherwise priority is lost. The boys then put their skills into action with some lively bouting – enjoyed by all.

Orienteering

Mr Dylan Sherman, MIC Orienteering

Crestwood was the setting for the first summer orienteering event this season. Boys faced a very lengthy course, challenging resilience, fitness and strength.

With complicated navigation, the course also provided an opportunity for the boys to test their recollection of orienteering intellect. Navigation and skills based orienteering will be particularly important this term, with focus on bush and off track courses. The boys also enjoyed the newly digitalised courses, with pre-printed control descriptions and pre-panned maps to improve accuracy and overall efficiency of the event.

Congratulations to Thomas Gordon who led in division 1 by 16 minutes! Division 2 saw Lachlan Yelds take first, with Eric Zhao closely behind. In Division 3, Alex Koch-Lowndes, running his first ever orienteering course at Knox, took out first place, with james Charlton and Dhurv Hariharan just behind on second and third. Please see the Orienteering portal page for full results and split times from the weekend.

Tennis

Mr Ben Higgins, MIC Tennis

Saturday 15 October 2016 saw Knox take on St Ignatius College in a friendly match away. The 1st and 2nd team has a few new players to the team this week and looking very young, which is great for the future development of our teams.

The 1st and 2nd teams both had some tight matches against a strong school. The tennis was being played at a very high level even though it was a practice match. Both teams ended up tying 3 matches all in 1st and 2nds. Special mention to Charlie Wong for a great performance in both singles and doubles. The 3rd and 4th teams also did very well winning 6-0 in the 3rd teams and 4-2 in our 4th team. The 5th and 6th also got a match against St Ignatius and won comfortably 6-0 in both teams. Teams 7th- 9ths played an internal round robin and Morona Avenue.

The Year 10 boys were at home this week at Turramurra Park. The A team won 5-1 with some good tennis played by Lachie Fraser winning both singles and doubles matches. The B team lost 1-5 overall, but only losing by 6 games to split the two teams. The C team won 5-1, whilst the D team won 4-2. Teams E to H played an internal round robin at Morona Avenue.
The Year 9 teams all played some fantastic tennis with A-D teams all winning overall. The A and C team won 6-0 whilst the B and D teams 4-2. It was great to see that the boys have all stared to gel especially in our doubles. Teams E- J all played an internal round robin competition at Regimental Park with all of the boys getting some of the rust out from not playing enough in the holidays.

The Year 8A team played some very solid tennis winning 5-1 overall with some great tennis played by Rahul Grewal. The B team had a great battle with their opposition tying 3-3 but winning by 2 games to split the two teams. The C and D teams didn’t quite do as well, but only lost 2-4 overall in both teams. Teams E-J played an internal round robin competition at the Knox Senior Courts and Regimental Park.

In our other competition we are running alongside the CAS fixtures. The NSTA teams did very well this weekend with our NSTA Team 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 all winning their first round matches. Teams 2 and 4 were unlucky with their matches against some strong opposition.
Overall it was a great weekend for the teams winning 70% of matches played which is very good against a strong tennis school.

Looking forward to next week’s first round CAS fixture against Cranbrook.

Track and Field

Mr Andrew Ferris, Track and Field Director

NSW All Schools
A total of 28 Knox athletes competed at the 2016 New South Wales All Schools Athletics Championships.

The gold rush started early with Thomas Shannon and John Hunter taking gold in the first two events of the championships, the 13 and 14 years Hammer Throw.  Thomas also set a new championship record in the process.  Later in the evening Mitchell Westhuizen took bronze in the 14 years 1500m.  Thomas Shannon also claimed bronze in the Shot Put.  Riley Hemsworth managed to sneak into the 200m final.  Daniel Lum and Cooper Barr dead heated in the 14 boys Hurdles, amazingly the photo finish could not separate them.

The success continued on day two with Mitchell Westhuizen winning the 3000m in convincing fashion.  Riley Hemsworth was fantastic in the 90m Hurdles, finishing runner up.  James Constable fought all the way to the line in the 14 years 800m to claim bronze.  In the 13 years 800m final, Jacob Buchanan ran a personal best to finish 6th.

Day three was Silver Saturday.  Lachlan Antoinette and John Hunter both finished second in the Hammer Throw and Discus respectively.  A gallant effort from Michael Hitchcock saw him qualify for the 400m final.  In a tight Triple Jump competition Jackson Ellis was 5cm outside the medals, finishing fourth.  Lewis Clabburn ran season bests to narrowly miss the 100m and 200m finals.

Day four was another day of fantastic results.  In winning the 17 years Javelin, Cameron McEntyre also set a new championship record.  Cameron was throwing so far across the in field, that the Discus competition at the opposite end had to be stopped each time he threw.  Well done to Josh Batten and Austin Thomson on making the 400m finals and Charles Barlclay and Jackson Ellis on making the hurdles finals.  

Tom, John, Riley, Mitchell, Lachlan and Cameron will now represent NSW at the Australian All Schools Championships in December.
