Well done again to all involved in last Saturday’s fixtures, for the first time this year on a cold and wintery day.

It was great to see our students appropriately attired and I thank them all for supporting the school, their team and the opposition by being where they needed to be as Knox was at many venues on Saturday.

I especially want to thank the 7ths Rugby boys who played two games to ensure we met our commitment to the opposition. I congratulate Hugo Forlico Year 11 on his selection to the NSW CIS Football team and congratulate all the boys involved in those trials and the other CIS trials last week.

Congratulations also to Matthew Dall’Asen, Year 11 who won a gold medal at the 2016 SEAF Cadet & Junior Fencing Championships held recently in Pasig city, Philippines.

Well done to Mr Ferris and his team on hosting the weekly CAS GPS Cross Country at St Ives. This is a large event with over 350 students involved and by all accounts it was a very successful day.

The House Cricket continues to provide an avenue for House spirit and it has been enjoyable to watch these games being played in the Lawson centre, last week and again this week.

This week-end sees the half-way point in the winter fixtures, and I wish all the best to all students. Go the Black and Blue!

Mr Joey Britton, MIC AFL

Under 14a
Knox 14A faced St Aloysius for the first time this season and many would argue that it would be our toughest battle to date.

We were only capable of showing our potential in small passages of play throughout the day and unfortunately were out played by superior opposition. Injuries have riddled our side so far this season and it began to show that our side could not just rely on two or three players. Jude Yates and Lachie Thompson were getting to the ball first and winning the ball for us against some tough opposition in the midfield, while Lachie White was taking an endless amount of marks down back, slowly working his way into the game. Pat Bolger was helping the side move the ball efficiently with some nice passages of play from Dom Goddard and Lachie Voukelatos. Will Shortis played well, kicking two goals on his opposite foot from directly in front. Unfortunately the boys couldn't manage a win this weekend, but with some hard work on the training track, they will be keen to bounce back next week.

Knox 62 Defeated by St Aloysius 62-25

Goals: Will Shortis 2, Liam Puncher

Best Players: Jude Yates, Lachie Thompson, Pat Bolger, Lachie White, Dom Goddard and Lachie Voukelatos


Under 14 B Blue
It was another great weekend of AFL for the Knox B Blue juggernaut. With another two wins to remain undefeated this season. The team played very well in tough and soggy conditions who competed in a round robin format against Knox Black and Riverview. The first game saw a good contest between the two Knox teams. Great goal kicking from Ben Hollander and Severin Fairfax and fantastic defence from Gabe Carmody and Ethan Ang saw the side claim a three goal victory. The second game was cut short due to an injury to a Riverview player. However in the shortened game Knox applied great pressure and moved the ball very well. Special mentions must go to Sam Matruglio and Jack Smith for their outstanding efforts. 

Knox Blue Defeated Knox Black 49-14
Knox Blue Defeated Riverview White 28-8

Best Players: Harry Lawson, Ben Hollander, Severin Fairfax, Aleksy Ginovic, Gabe Carmody and Jack Smith.

Under 14 B Black
Knox Black faced up against two tough opponents in the undefeated Knox Blue and Riverview Blue side that they were very competitive against last week. The team has improved consistently each week with first year players learning the game quickly and showing great promise as future stars of the game. Lachie Donaldson has consistently improved over the season and adapted well when moving out of the midfield and into the backline this week. Charlie Hennessey and Tyler Arndt found hard all day in the midfield and Owen Lees showed great promise gathering plenty of touches when he was moved into the midfield. The ever-present goal sneak in Josh Laing showed glimpses of the enormous potential adding to his growing goal tally for the season with two majors. Robbie Ritchie showed again a great appetite for the contest winning the ball consistently in the midfield as the Knox Black team showed great fight up until half time in both games with the score line almost even. Unfortunately in both games the boys ran out of puff coming out of half time with the slippery conditions favouring the opposition. 


Knox Black Defeated by Riverview white 36-70
Goals: 2 Josh Laing, 2 Charlie Hennessy

Best: Lachie Donaldson, Charlie Hennessy, Robbie Ritchie, Tyler Arndt, Owen Lees and Henry Barnes.

Knox Under 16 Black vs Knox Under 16s Blue
In extremely cold and wet conditions, the blue and black derby proved to be a testament to the year 9 and 10's determination, character and willingness to play. After a difficult and long warm up due to an injury in the previous game and weather conditions, the boys were keen and ready to play. Beginning with a strong start, Knox Blue grasped the lead firmly at half time. Harry Potter showing off his ruck skills, and Dylan Gay with an impressive performance on the wing hit Knox Black hard in the first half. However, Chris Palser showed great agility combined with Jack Bregenhoj's excitement and enthusiasm lifted Knox Black's morale and performance. Special mention to Luke Bray and his magnificent goal in the forward pocket while fending off a defender. While weather conditions did not prevail, it wasn't able to hinder the boy's zest and passion for the game.  

Knox Blue 52 Defeated Knox Black 23

Goal Kickers Blue: Tasman Rooke, Zayne Hookham and Luke Bray

Goal Kickers Black: 2. Jordan Moses, Chris Palser, Jack Bregenhoj, Kye Harbor and Josh Officer

First XVIII
The Knox Firsts AFL team played against Cranbrook in round 4 of the competition. In the opening quarter Knox were first at the football at every contest. However at times lacked composure when disposing the ball inside the 50 due to the slippery conditions. As the game went on, Knox adjusted to the conditions accordingly and were able to reward themselves with consecutive goals. In the second half the side continued to work hard, run in waves and create space for one another.  In the end the Knox side were far too strong and won convincingly.

Knox 87 Defeated Cranbrook 23

Best Players: Luke Parks, James Bennett, Connor McFadden, James Robertson, Josh Tighe and Ryan de Vries

Cross Country

Runners were greeted by cold and wet conditions at St Ives Showground on Saturday morning for our annual Cross Country Invitational. Ensuring stiff competition, the event also doubled as the selection trial for CIS in two weeks.

The first race of the day was the Juniors, and once again they showed they’re a force to be reckoned with Sam Rockliffe and Mitch Westhuizen finishing 2nd and 3rd overall.  Angus Menzies had a solid debut for the season with 24th, Max Evans and Ewan Shingler continue to be the glue the holds the team together with great performances yet again.  Angus Kellaway and Henry Roberts were rewarded for their hard work at training, while Richard Hildebrand and Angus Matthews keep improving week after week.


Next up the Intermediates tallied their best finish of the season so far with 7th overall.  Led by strong performances from Henry Partridge and Jackson Croker.  Zach Wyatt and Aiden Kumarasinghe showed plenty of grit to tough their way through the course.  Sean Birkbeck in his first race of the season had a steep learning curve, however the experience will hold him in good stead come CAS Championships.  

The Opens were fortunate to avoid the worst of the weather.  Tom Gordon had another top day at the office with a 15th place finish.  Ben Fitton managed to find himself in the top 50 yet again.  Kent Felton, Duncan Ballantine, Andrew Crosling and Isaac Roberts all had solid runs in a super competitive field.

Fencing

This week Footwork exercises were followed by an agility race which the students really enjoyed and entered into with great enthusiasm.

Students then suited up for some quick fire bouting in teams. Older students took up their sabres, learning sabre parries and the different rules and target areas of the body. They then put their lessons into action with sabre bouting - delivering fast but accurate attacks and using the edge of the blade as well as the point.

Knox Vs Trinity CAS round 4 2016
Mr Matt Berkley  

The Knox 1st X1 continued their unbeaten run this season, scoring a 5-0 victory away from home against Trinity to remain top of the table.

A great team performance in tricky conditions by a confident Knox side sticking to their game plan made Coach Kai Lammert very happy. While traction was hard to maintain on the wet artificial surface, the scoreboard told a different story for Knox, who made the most of set plays and stoppages. In such an all-round team effort, no one area failed to impress on a field traditionally difficult to come away with points. Special mention must go to Matt Lee for his long range effort finding the top corner and pleasing the cold crowd. The team’s focus is now on St Aloysius and the top of the table encounter next week. 

The Knox 2nd X1 also remain undefeated, taking their fixture 2-0 and maintaining the 3 point lead on top of the ladder. 

The 3rds and 4ths both suffered 1-0 defeats this week. The 5ths shared the spoils this week, coming away with a point in a 3-3 thriller, while the 6ths and 7ths both conceded character building big scores to register defeats.

Year 10 continued their winning trend, with all teams again outperforming their opponents to win all of their fixtures. The 10A’s Toby Powell impressed in the team’s emphatic 4-0 victory, along with teammates Nicholas Drummond and Mitchell Symons. The 10B’s Charles Barclay proved most valuable in their 4-2 goal fest of a match, while The 10C’s enjoyed victory in a closer affair 3-2 with a great game from Leonard Lai. The 10D’s defence was too much for Trinity as they took their match 2-0, and The 10Es overcame their opponents 3-1. The F’s and The G’s scored a combined total of 16 goals in their 2 matches, winning 9-0 and 7-0 respectively. Ethan Schokman for the F’s and Nicholas Galati for the G’s both scored hat tricks in their goalathon matches.

The 9A’s improved on their draw last week to take their match 2-1 in another tough encounter, with Nick Boyd performing well and Max Davis scoring both goals for Knox. The 9B’s drew 1-1, while The C’s and E’s again scored plenty of goals winning each of their fixtures 3-0. The 9D’s will be working on their defence this week after going down 4-1 but will be sure to bounce back, while the 9F’s also ended this week on the wrong side of the ledger in a closely fought 2-1 battle. 

The 8C’s provide us with our Feature Game of the Week, and have enjoyed a successful season so far, but so had Trinity and this was to be a matchup of the in-form teams of the competition. The outlook became dire in the first 5 minutes for Knox, as Robbie Dundas-Smith injured himself in a last man tackle and had to be taken from the field. Adapting well to the subsequent tactical changes from the injury, Knox dominated both possession, and field position against a strong Trinity defensive outfit. A header by Jono Cole from an Ollie Penn corner that just missed the crossbar was one of many chances created in the first half by an impressive Knox side producing some of their best football of the season. The halftime score line was held to 0-0, but Knox entered the 2nd half with confidence, knowing a continued effort would reap rewards. It didn’t take long before Jono Cole showed his class with a well-timed through ball for Olli Penn to score Knox’ first goal. Clive Marolt capped off a stellar performance when he buried the rebound of his own penalty and put the game out of reach 2-0. Outstanding performances at the back from Richard Hildebrand, Max Hirst, and goalkeeper Luke Schofield, ensured Knox remain undefeated. Meanwhile, The 8A’s, D’s, and G’s suffered losses, while the B’s and I’s drew their fixtures 2-2. The E’s won 7-1, and not to be outdone, the F’s scored 13 times without conceding. The 8H team rounded this week off with a slightly narrower 4-0 victory.

Year 7’s Jayden Brocklebank kept the grade’s reputation for goals in tact, netting the ball 7 times in the 7G’s 10-1 victory, while the 7E’s shared the scoring around a little more in their 13-0 victory with hat tricks to Alec Burg and Tom Rugers. The 7A’s Lachlan Hui was impressive in their 4-2 entertainer, while the C’s and D’s won their matches by much more modest margins with good games from Alec Wartho and Justin Scott. The B’s had a rare goalless draw this week, and the 7F’s were unfortunately outclassed 4-1 by an attacking Trinity, but are working on their defence this week in preparation to impress against St Aloysius.

House Cricket

Matt Beatty, Year 12

Monday, Week 5, marked the start of the annual house cricket competition and the event was graced with some great cricket.

In the first round, despite some no shows, there was some fierce cricket played, most notably the game between Reid and McKenzie coming down to the last ball. In the repechage round, there were some comfortable wins amongst Sinclair over Murdoch, and a last over heroic display by Reid House’s very own, Roger Xia, who opened his cricketing career with a first ball, gaming win shot into the squash courts. Moving into the quarters, there were comfortable wins for Bryden over Sinclair, McIlrath over MacNeil, McKenzie over Angus, and the last over big hitting by Duncan Ballantine to secure the victory for Turnbull over Reid. 

The semi-final saw a face off of Bryden and Turnbull. Going into it, Turnbull were heavy favourites, but due to some unforeseeable issues of lack of star players, Bryden claimed the victory over the Bulls to claim 3rd spot for the tournament. The grand final saw McKenzie take on McIlrath, of which was comfortably won by McKenzie, led by Sam Schofield and the spearhead paceman of Will Graham, who was clear to be the tournaments stand out player, continuing on his form from the CAS championship winning season.

Knox tackle’s the Balmoral Burn

The 16th running of the Charity Event “The Balmoral Burn” was staged last Sunday 29 May where Knox Track and Field contested two senior boy’s teams to tackle the 420m climb up the famous Awaba Street, Balmoral.
Two mixed team’s consisting of a mix of speed and endurance athletes from our respective Sprints and Middle Distance programs. 

The team’s event saw four runners in each team individually tackle the hill in a relay style format. Both Knox quartets did exceptionally well against much older components from rival GPS, ISA and CAS schools, placing 5th and 7th respectively.

Below are the splits for each team member:

Knox 1 (5th overall)
1. Charles Barclay – 1:53
2. Josh Batten – 1:47
3. Jackson Ellis – 2:00
4. Ben Fitton – 1:37

Knox 2 (7th overall) 
1. James Constable – 1:49
2. Tom Constable – 1:56
3. Peter Sherlock – 1:43
4. Austin Thompson – 1:53

Also representing Knox from the Prep School in the younger age groups was Will Constable (year 6), Lachlan Moore (year 2) and older brother Charlie Moore (year 5). 

Will (Constable) was victorious in the year 3-6 category winning clearly by over 20 metres. “this hill is different to anything I have done before. It’s hard to move your legs in the final 50 metres” Constable said post-race.
In the same race, Charlie Moore was a solid 9th in his respective age group running a time of 2:29. Amazingly, Charlie competed with his father (Hugh) in the Father/Son category 45 minutes later and ran a faster time of 2:17. It was a busy morning for the Moore family as Lachlan (year 2) was placed 3rd in the K-2 age category.

The Balmoral Burn is run by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation. In 2016, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation have provided medical equipment to over 250 hospitals and health service centres across Australia.

Rugby

Knox 1st XV produced a dazzling first half display against Trinity at Trinity last Saturday.

After the brilliant attack of the first half Knox were forced to defend for long periods in the second half. Their swarming defence nullified the attacking efforts of the Trinity team and duly won 49 – 5 in an impressive display. The 2nd XV worked hard to defeat a determined Trinity team 15 – 7 while in the other Opens matches with Trinity, Knox won both the 3rd XV and 4th XV 48 – 5 and 53 – 0 respectively. The Knox 5th XV travelled to St Joseph’s College meeting a strong St Joseph’s College 6th XV team and lost 0 – 36. The 6th XV travelled to Waverley losing 27 – 39 against Waverley 5th XV while the 7th XV played Oakhill at home and in a close match lost 12 – 26.


The U16’s have had to deal with some injury and illness but to their credit exhibited a great deal of determination to defeat Trinity 18 – 7 in the 16A match. The 16B’s won their match with Reddam House 5 – 0 in another of their trademark defensive performances. The 16C’s defeated Trinity 16B’s 17 – 7, the 16D’s lost to St Joseph’s College G 14 – 32 while the 16E’s won their first match of the season scoring a late try to win against St Ignatius College 16H 10 – 7. 

The 15E’s had a tough day against St Joseph’s College 15D’s losing 0 – 72 and the 15C’s also encountered a strong St Joseph’s College team losing 0 – 57. However, the other Knox teams all had good wins against Trinity. The 15A’s continue to impress and when the occasion was presented, sought to play wide, producing some brilliant attacking rugby. The 14A’s produced a very wholehearted display against Trinity who inflicted a big defeat upon them last year. A busy and bustling defence in the first half restricted the Trinity team and Knox led 7 – 5 at the break. However, with plenty of possession and a territorial advantage,
 Trinity wore down the gallant Knox team to win 17 – 7. The 13A’s lost to Trinity 8 – 15 but the rest of the age group all recorded strong wins.

Knox plays St Aloysius this Saturday and the 1st XV will play away. Please note that the fixture list will include matches with a number of different schools at various venues.

Squash

Mr Eric van Arkkels, MIC Squash

Knox 2 won 3-0 against Barker 1. F Hellen-Ford, B Close and R Rattan - this team continues to improve week by week proving that hard work and their desire to get better at their game ensures a healthy challenge.

Knox 3 won 3-0 against Northmead 1.    K  Tse, N Haung and E Xie.  With Karlon leading the way Knox 3 dominated early with some well placed fore hand drives and drops.

Knox 5 won 3-0  against Barker 3.     Z Partridge, P Koch and E Bakker.  These boys are the silent achievers, they train hard, they are very focused and always look forward to playing above their mark.

Knox 7 lost 0-2 against Knox 6 with both C William and A Srivatsan stepping up. Both boys set the tempo early going leaving T Ballinger and O Ellard very little time to settle with some quality drops and cross court plays.

Knox 12 lost 0-3 against Barker 11.   A Michaels, J Merhi  and F Bryant were in for a tough day, but  they never stopped trying with some hard fought rallies only losing by a few points.

Knox 13 lost I-2 to Barker 10.  O Rady was a last minute call up and gave his best with some well earned points. J Harris played a hard fought 5 setter to go on and win most probably his best game to date.

Knox 14 lost 0-3 to Knox 15.  A Bradshaw, V Zhong and H Mendes were too strong on the day giving W Wells, O Rady and F Bryant little opportunity to get into their respective games. Both teams played some quality Squash with some hard fought rallies.

Knox 16 won 2-1 against Northmead 2.  This team is playing well above its mark striving to the challenge and getting the results.  B Cheng going down 1-3 in a very close match. E Albany playing two games and meeting the challenge with a dominant display.

Knox 17 won 2-1 against Briars 7 - another Knox team meeting the challenge playing well above their mark.   O Bendrien, L Gee and B Firth.  These students are always being challenged at training and their hard work is showing and paying dividends in their matches.

Knox 19 won 2-0 against Barker 14.  W Studdert and A Pan-Cassin out played their opponents giving little away and using the front of court to their advantage.

Knox 20 lost 0-2 to Knox 18.   T Kellaway and S Suresh continue to play a very direct game using the back of court to their advantage giving T Osullivan and W Zheng little opportunity to settle and counter attack.

Knox 20 lost 1-2 to Barker 16.  C Beauchamp started well with a convincing 3-0 win setting the platform for J Allen and A Barker to continue.  Unfortunately both boys were just beaten with only a few points difference.  This team continues to work hard and always turn up with a smile on their face, a great attitude.
 
Again another good day for Knox Squash with all teams improving and showing great sportsmanship.

Tennis

Mr Ben Higgins, MIC Tennis

Saturday 28 May saw Knox take on Trinity Grammar away at Trinity Tennis Centre on a very cold wet day.
Luckily the rain held off for the most part of the morning for our 1st and 2nd team. The boys got off to a great start winning all doubles. The rain started as soon as the singles started and the boys were eager to try and finish Trinity off, but unfortunately lost a few close contested matches. 

Max Nguyen had a great match but lost 4-6 against a tough player. The boys were up 4-3 with one match to play. Pedro Papangelis came out in some very wet conditions and won well against a very consistent junior. This meant the 1st team won 5-3 overall moving us into 1st place in the table with quite a bit of breathing space between the rest of the schools. The 2nd team played just as well winning all sets of doubles to get off to a great start too. The singles were a bit tighter for the team but managed to win the majority of matches with Andy Xuan winning well. The 2nd team didn&rsrsquo;t quite get to finish all of their matches with the rain coming down too heavy to continue with the last singles match splitting the points. Overall the 2nds won 6.5- 1.5 which was a very impressive display of doubles by both 1sts and 2nds. Teams 3rds -7th were all unfortunately washed out due to the rain.

The Year 10A team got most of their matches played at Turramurra Park on the synthetic grass winning 3-2 overall whilst the B team only got 2 matches in the hard court surface and unfortunately lost two very close matches. Teams C – E all got washed out unfortunately with the boys looking forward to playing their matches.

The Year 9 teams were on late enough to give the rain a chance to move on and for the sun to come out in time for their matches. The A team had a great battle finishing in a complete tie. The B and C teams both played some very solid tennis to win 5-1 overall in both matches, whilst the D team lost by only 2 games after having to forfeit a doubles and a singles. Teams E and F played an internal round robin at Regimental Park with all of the boys braving the cold conditions and all worked well to improve their match play.

The Year 8A team had great win 4-2 with some fantastic tennis played by Thomas Otto in both singles and doubles. The B team had an epic battle finishing in a tie on sets but only losing by 1 game overall. The C and D team were just way too strong for their opponents with both teams winning 6-0 overall with some outstanding tennis played by James Robertson winning both singles and doubles. Teams G- J all played an internal round robin tournament at Regimental Park. The boys got most of their matches played before the rain came.

The Year 7A and B teams both won 4-2 overall with some great tennis played by Jimmy Wang in his singles and Gavin Lee in both singles and doubles. Teams C and D unfortunately got washed out, whilst teams E- G all played an internal round robin tournament.

Overall it was a great weekend as far as results went, but unfortunate with quite a few matches not able to get on due to the weather. Thank you to all of the parents and players that made the trip to their allocated venues and sorry if you didn’t manage to get on the courts. Hopefully the weather will be a lot better for next weekend’s match. Overall Knox won 78% of matches played.
