Knox Grammar School

From the Head of
Knox Sports Academy Mr Chuck Ardron

Round 1 saw a good week-end of sport. It was great to watch the Volleyball team in action - even though they lost. Their enthusiasm and commitment was palpable, and I look forward to watching these teams improve throughout the season.

Congratulations to all the teams that won, and also to all those who did not win as all games, regardless of the score, were played in a great spirit with some close losses and wins and across all sports.

Waterpolo went exceptionally well with our 1sts and 2nds beating Trinity for the first time in many years.

This week-end sees round 2 and once again I look forward to travelling around and watching Knox students continue their efforts to compete and challenge the opposition and themselves to as always, do their best.

Knox boys medal at NSW Primary Schools State Track and Field Championships

The NSW Primary Schools State Track and Field Championships were held over two days last week - Wednesday 14th & Thursday 15th October at SOPAC.

Knox had six boys representing CIS at the carnival – Alex Sherlock, Dash Bryant, William Constable, Sam Rockliff, Max Purcell and Tom Osborn across a number of events. » Read More

Wednesday saw Tom (13yrs) and Alex (11yrs) qualify through to the semi-finals of their respective 100m. Sam and William were convincing winners in their 800m heats placing them in good stead for the finals on Thursday.

William ran a good strong race in the 11 years final in a tough field – the front four boys pushing each other to gain a medal and secure a place in the State team. Will was awarded bronze after a sprint to the finish. In the 12/13 years, Sam positioned himself comfortably in the pack and gradually pulled away from the rest of the field. He set a quick pace for the first lap with only one other competitor challenging him at the 400m mark. Sam was patient and then with 300m to go he increased the pace, leaving the second place runner and the others behind to win gold.

Next were the relay heats and our Senior team was ready for the challenge – drawing lane 8 they did not allow this to deter them, finishing third and gaining a place in the semi-finals. Becoming experts at running from the outside lane, the boys finished third in the semi-finals as well – qualifying them into the final. In the meantime, Alex narrowly missed out on a finals berth in the 100m. Tom qualified through and won silver in the 13 years.

The relay final was very tense with the top nine schools in the State vying for a medal and to be crowned State Champions. Our boys were on fire – ready to go and go they did. Dash to Tom, Tom to Max, Max to Alex going into the last change there were four schools neck to neck chasing down Barker. Alex powered down the straight passing one school at a time to finish in second place behind Barker. Barker gold, Knox silver and Warrawee PS bronze. 

A great way to finish the Championships!

William and Sam will now represent NSW at the School Sport Australia Championships in Canberra in December.

Congratulations to all Knox athletes on your dedication and performances throughout the 2015 Track & Field season.

U19’s won 7-4

U16’s won 13-9 » Read More

Knox U19’s
Two outstanding wins on the weekend for Knox Baseball.
With the U19’s winning 7-4. Every player playing their part, this showed that Knox baseball has come a long way and can only improve more.  

One of the many individual performances that won us the game, mention must be made of Andrew Johnstone in Year 9, with his double play from short stop.  

Knox U16’s
The game against Rangers on Saturday, October 17th was a well-played game with all boys batting well, scoring the maximum 5 runs in 2 out of 3 innings.

They are getting better at stealing which is placing pressure on the opposition and our fielding was solid.  Congratulations to all students on fair play in good spirit.

Basketball
Ellie Manou, MIC of Basketball

Passion, strength and determination is the culture that we strive to emulate throughout the entire Knox basketball program and the 1st team personified all three in their 55-47 win against Barker. The boys were determined to seek vengeance for the close loss that ultimately cost them the CAS championship last season. » Read More

Barker started the game strong but ran into trouble with Knox’s defence landing the Barker men in trouble and on the bench for most of the first half. Knox capitalised on this, led by Co-captain Matt Horsley’s hustle, communication and stellar play on the defensive end. This combined with efficient scoring by Will Yang in the third quarter enabled Knox to take the lead heading into the final quarter of the game. Knox finished the game out rebounding, out running and converting on big shots down the stretch. It was a gutsy and passionate performance by the determined Knox team and is exactly what we require from our boys in every game moving forward in order to achieve the success that we desire.

The 2nds started on fire leading 18-2 in the early stages of the game thanks to their efficient offence and lock down defence. Barker responded to the challenge by picking up their intensity and playing a full court press on our boys which led to multiple turnovers and ultimately a 35-40 loss. Ball security and maximising on leads is what the 2nds will look to improve on in the next round.

The Open’s year group struggled against an impressive Barker unit finishing the day with a 3 win and 7 loss record. Intensity and application is what we need from this age group in order to be successful moving forward. 

The Year 10 age group continued their dominant form from last round and challenged Barker across the board coming away with a record of 8-2. The A’s held on to win a tight match 40-38 and the B’s also closed out a hard fought battle down to the wire to win 29-27. 

Year 9 struggled against an impressive Barker age group going 4-4 for the round. The A’s played a gutsy game but were defeated 13-58 by the well-tuned Barker team.  The B’s were impressive in victory with all players contributing to a 37-29 win. The 9H’s had the most dominant win of the day leaving Barker scoreless while scoring an impressive 67 points themselves.

Year 8 continues to impress with an undefeated round against Barker. The A’s are playing some exceptional team basketball, with each player consistently performing their role within the team resulting in a 44-26 victory. The B’s are following suit with a gritty 28 – 5 victory.

The entire basketball program did Knox proud with 26 wins and 15 losses resulting in a gutsy 64% win rate against arguably the strongest school in the CAS basketball competition. Congratulations to all boys who competed in the Barker and competitive internal games on the weekend!

Next up will be St Aloysius with our Open’s and Year 8 age group at home and Years 9 and 10 away. It will be another good test for the Knox basketball program as we continue to strive to assert our dominance across the board in the CAS competition. 

A reminder that all boys are to wear their Knox PDHPE shirts when travelling to and from games. 





Cricket

1st XI vs St Aloysius (H)
Day One of the two day game vs St Aloysius saw a very green wicket turn into a flat one just after lunch. Winning the toss and electing to bowl, impressive opening spells from Alex McConnell and Will Graham pegged back the opposition immediately.  » Read More


Despite losing 7 wickets for 80 runs, the wicket flattened out and the Alo’s lower order played with intelligence and discipline, making their way to 172 not out. A great effort by all the Knox bowlers, keeping them to 2 an over all day on a great pitch. Pick of the bowlers was Will Graham 3/30, Alex McConnell with 2/28 and Jack Hoyle with 3/35. 

Batting for an hour at the end of the day was turned from a potentially tricky time into a productive one due to the intent of opening batter, Hayden Todoroski who finished the day on 26 not out with some blistering boundaries and resolute defence. Knox will resume next  week 1/38 in the chase. 

2nd XI vs St Aloysius (A)
The 10A game previously had proved that this wicket was a belter. Unfortunately the inexperience of the 2nd XI batting order came up against a very good bowling attack, finally capitulating to 58 all out. With a low score on the board, the Knox bowlers set about turning their hurt into a great bowling performance. Todd Anderson continued his impressive form with the ball to finish with 3/10 off 8 overs, backed up well by Alex Gilbert 1/9 and Josh Tighe, 1/8 to leave Alo’s reeling at 5/38.The boys showed big heart and can expect a great game next week. 

3rd XI vs Barker (A)
Winning the toss and electing to bat, the 3rd XI would’ve expected better on a good pitch as Barker bowlers set about making the most of some poor shot selected and footwork. Knox fell for only 66 runs. Will West showing glimpses of application as he top scored for the second week in a row with 17. 

Barker chased down the small total with 5 wickets down in the 14th over. Mentions to Ben Close and Connor McFadden who bowled with heart and accuracy. 

4th XI vs Barker (H)
A decent batting score of 131 from Knox was due to the good batting of Ed Morris (35), James De Meyrick and Lachlan Wood who both scored 28. In reply, Barker chased down the score with a few wobbles. Mainly down to French who finished with 3/15 and Du Ploy 3/37. 

5th XI vs Barker (H)
The 5th XI continued their good form with a successful chase of 174 in a 20/20 game at Gillespie. Innings from Chapman (25 not out), Upton (32) and Gratton (20) saw the boys to a win in a tight finish. 

10A vs St Aloysius (A)
Hours and hours of throw downs, bowling machines and thinking about batting coupled with buckets of patience were the reason behind the extraordinary performance from one Knox 10A batsman at the weekend. Nick Astridge finishing on 137 not out as the Knox 10As made their way to 236. Mentions to Alex Zatz and Cameron Hewitt who provided support during the beginning of the innings and the end of the innings. St Aloysius will resume batting next week with Knox pushing for a win with a big score on the board. 

10B vs Barker (A) 
Knox batted first making a respectable total of 160 with Sam Chapman having an excellent day with the bat scoring 63, supported by Ned Young, grinding out a very good 22. Knox then bowled extremely well getting them 6 down. Felix Walsh bowled very tight to open and close the bowling unlucky not to get a wicket however Sam Chapman had the best figures of 1-14 off 4.4 overs. Efforts were very commendable in the field with everyone putting their body on the line and committing 100%. 

10C vs Barker (H)
Batting first on a good batting pitch, Barker made their way to 147. Ethan Schockman was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with 2 wickets. The fielding was of an excellent standard throughout the innings, with Finn Douglas taking three catches. With the bat, only one man stood out and that was Adam Holmes who made a 50! Knox finishing all out 112. 

9A vs St Aloysius (H)
Lower Gillespie was the venue for the second round of the 9A’s CAS quest. Coming up against a good bowling attack in St Aloysius. Winning the toss and electing to bat, Henry Wines continued his fine form with 55 runs before being run out. A middle order collapse saw Knox fall to 5/109. Enter Viruna Tennakoon. Ably and sensibly supported by the growing Ollie Garrett, Viruna made his way to a fantastic 70 runs. This is testament to a lot of hard work and batting training, coupled with the desire to make runs. Knox declaring on 211 leaving 3 overs to bowl at the end of the day. Zac Graham then snared a wicket leaving St Aloysius 1/6. A great day for the 9A’s. 

9B vs Barker (A)
Batting first Knox made their way to their highest score for some time, Jamie Cerezo making a fantastic 41, supported by Mikey Glover who made a steady 22. The Barker batsman were steady and solid. Khoby McDonald bowled with fire and pace, finishing with 1/13 off 4 overs. Barker chasing the score only 3 wickets down. 

9C vs Barker (A) 
They’ve done it again. After yet another nail biter, the 9C’s have pulled off another win after a long battle with the old enemy, Barker. On a day that was hot but threatened late showers, Barker won the toss and opted to have a bat.  Within half a dozen overs, the Barker top order were down.   After clearly eating a whole jar of vegemite for breakfast, Will Coe had a role in three wickets in as many overs. The first was bowled, the second one caught off his own bowling and the third was a blistering run-out opportunity taken at the non-striker’s end. After being five down for not very much, Barker managed to fight their way back into the match. Special mention should go the Barker skipper, Andy Scott. Like Harold on the field of Hastings, he carried his bat whilst those around him fell, succumbing near the end of the innings for 51. The great cameo of the innings for Knox was Jared Meyer, who took 3/3 at a critical time and in doing so restricted Barker to 94. The run chase was a slow battle. A number of the Knox batsmen came, contributed and went but it was Archer Bradshaw who formed the bedrock of the innings.  In a restrained dig mixed with occasional flashing stroke play, he scored a close to chanceless 29 before being caught. It was then that Johnie Holland, the 9C’s silent maestro, opened his shoulders. He scored a six and a four consecutively to give Knox victory with three overs to spare and leaving him to not out on 31. 
     
8A vs Barker (A)
The 8A juggernaut continued against Barker with another impressive win. Jayllen Naganayagam made a blistering 48 runs. Supported by captain Kale Gabila (30) and Alex Delaine (20 not out). In reply, many bowlers are worth a mention. Will Fernandez (2/4), Ollie Penn bowling three overs which were all maidens, Gabila (2/14) and leg spinner, Gus Kellaway (3/14). Barker finally all out for 122. Knox win by 11 runs. A great performance!  

8B vs Barker (H)
The 8B’s won the toss and elected to bat first. Lachy Donaldson continuing his fine form with 48. Narrowly missing out on a 50. Dan Mulcahy supported well with 27 opening the batting as Knox made their way to 158 off their 32 overs. In reply, Jack Delaney bowled with accuracy and swing, picking up 2 for 12, but the star with the ball was Harrison Le Boursicot who took 4/18. Oscar Petro also bowling well with 3/6 off 4 overs. Barker B finishing all out 62. 

8C vs Barker (H)
Fresh from a tight finish against Kings, the 8C’s faced Barker at Gillespie. Bowling first, Barker made their way to 126 off their 32 overs. Adam Barnes was the start of the show with 3/14. Chasing a low score, Ryan Schokman showing he can occupy the crease for long periods of time making 23 with Michael O’Day contributing 18. The result was never really in doubt with Adam Barnes seeing them home completing a fine all round performance. 

8D vs Barker (A)
Batting first, Knox made their way to a reasonable total of 105. Dylan Campbell making a fine 25 and Rhys Owen making a fantastic 36. Barker in reply chased down the total with relative ease. All Knox bowlers deserve credit for persistence and togetherness on the field. Well led by William O’Sullivan. 

8E vs Barker (H)
The 8E’s completed another dominant performance bowling Barker out for only 41. Dominic Singarayar taking 3 wickets for only 1 run. Sam Caroll (2/10) and Will Lovell (2/13) deserve credit too! In the chase, the Jacobsen brothers with 20 not out and 17 not out ensured a professional and easy chase was completed. A great win! 


Fencing

The Prep boys practised their footwork and parries. The group then broke up into teams to challenge each other in a "fence off". » Read More

All the boys performed well and learned good sportsmanship in saluting their opponents and shaking hands at the end. The senior boys also split into teams to refine their fencing skills and practising their attacks and defences against each other. 

A reminder that on 7 November from 9am to 12.30pm there will be a special fencing event Italian Relay in the Prep School Auditorium.  


Golf
David McGowan, MIC Golf

Our new team had some tough matches against a seasoned Barker side and was defeated 3½ to ½ at Strathfield G.C. » Read More

It was the first round of competitive school golf for all of the members of our B team, consisting of Sam Druce, Tofi Adejuyigbe, Will Ryan and Charles Balog.

Will played a tight match throughout the day with some impressive driving and approach play. His match went to the 17th, but he was defeated 3/1.

Sam enjoyed his match against a +2 handicap opponent. He fought hard throughout the day to stay in touch, but was defeated 3/2 on the 16th. 

Charles played some impressive golf and had a chance to win his first match on the 16th, but in the end finished “All Square” on the last.

Our exchange student Tofi, found the course layout somewhat challenging to his developing game, but played some good shots on occasion. He was defeated 6/4.

House Water Polo
Matt Lee, Senior House Prefect

Week 3 will mark the end of the House Water polo Competition. Unfortunately some houses lacked support on the opening days, resulting in disappointing results. » Read More

On a more positive note, Gillespie, Sinclair and Turnbull were well represented and consequently won their matches with impressive score lines. The special mention this week, is Will Bondy of MacNeil House. The year 7 boy who heroically took to the pool alone against to a full team from Bryden, and held the score line to a respectable 4-1. He even managed to score from the halfway line! All class! Junior’s this is your chance, get down to the pool, with your swimmers, for the final matches this week to support your House. 
 
Looking ahead to week 5, we will begin the Senior House Football, on Knox 1. Even if not participating, be sure to bring your lunch and barrack for your House.

Mountain Biking

Round one of the 2015-16 CAS Mountain Biking competition meant an early morning for most. » Read More

Located in close proximity to Maroubra Beach in Southern Sydney and hosted by Waverley College, Heffron Park is a Criterium circuit 2km in length with a number features including straights prominent to wind gusts, undulations over the parks flowing hills over the back of the course and tight twists and turns.

The racing at Heffron Park is broken into two races:

A Division Road Race
Saturdays format was:
  • Division 5 & 6: Years 7 and 8 = 2 Laps
  • Division 3 & 4: Years 9 and 10 = 3 Laps
  • Division 1 & 2: Years 11 and 12 = 4 Laps
A 1 Lap Sprint

Being a sealed road course, Heffron is different to what the boy’s race and train on which is predominantly dirt trails. However Heffron Park provides a great test of strength and fitness for the boys with many putting in everything to get over the line. Saturday was no different with all boys giving the race a red-hot-go despite the fact that some boys would prefer to be racing on dirt trails/traditional mountain biking.

Special Mention goes to the Junior boys 7-8, who when asked to race upper divisions in addition to their own were more than happy to – despite the competition being 4 years older in some cases. I believe this is a great testament to these boys’ determination and grit – especially at such a young age. 

The results are as follows:
  1. Knox - 34 points
  2. Barker - 19 points
  3. Riverview – 17 points
A fantastic effort by all kept Knox on top of the leader board, and on track for another successful season of CAS MTB.

Congratulations to all boys who raced, and special mention to the parents for their continued support. 

Squash

Knox 1st had a very convincing result on Saturday, this team is training very hard and at this early stage of the season are showing commitment and their desire to work on the little things is paying off.
» Read More

The Knox 2nds travelled to Willoughby  Nathan Huang playing two matches  against some quality opposition losing one and winning the other, Evan Xie played a five setter down to the wire showing that persistence and not giving up gets you the result .

Year 7 player Daniel Loyzaga from Team 13 was challenged on Saturday having to play two five setter matches winning one and losing the other.

Tennis
Ben Higgins, MIC Tennis

Saturday 17th October saw Knox take on Barker in our 1st round clash of the Summer Season. The 1st team had a close battle with the boys splitting the doubles results making 2-2 heading into the singles. » Read More

Captain Cooper Cole won his singles in a tight match 7-6 and Pedro Papangelis won a good singles match 6-4 with a solid performance. Hugo La Hei lost a close match 6-7 leaving it down to Thomas Burwood to just get 1 game to secure the victory for the 1sts. Thomas lost 4-6 against a very talent6ed opponent, meaning the 1st won 4-4 (43-40). The 2nd team also had some fantastic matches a very close the whole morning. Clive Marolt and Max Nguyen lost a very close contested match 5-7/ 6-7 in their doubles. Charlie Wong and Lachlan Walker managed to split the sets in their doubles helping their team out for the singles. Unfortunately the singles didn’t quite go our way losing a lot of very close matches. Clive Marolt (Year 7) again gets match of the day winning his singles match 7-5 after being 1-5 down. The 2nd lost 2-6 overall, but with only 11 games splitting the two teams. The 3rds won 4-2 with a good win from Joel Sved in both doubles and singles. The 4th lost 2-4 with a close match with only 7 games splitting the teams. The 5th found the Barker team too strong losing 0-6 overall. The 6th-8ths played an internal match at Morona Avenue.

The 10A team lost a close match 2-4 due to being a player short. The B and C teams both lost 1-5 with some work to do on the doubles. The D team had a draw in their match 3-3 (21-21). The boys worked well to keep in the matches. The E team unfortunately lost 2-4 with only a few games splitting the teams. The F team played an internal match due to lack of players from Barker. Teams G played in the FAST 4 TENNIS Competition at Regimental Park.
The 9A team lost 0-6 due to the impressive strength of the Barker team. The B team had a fantastic match 3-3 (29-29) to finish off with a well-deserved draw between the teams. The C team had a great win 4-2 overall with an impressive performance by Thomas Robinson in both singles and doubles. The D team lost a close match 2-4 with only 3 games splitting the teams due to Knox being a player short. The E team won 5-1 with a good all round team performance. The F team also had a good win 4-2 with only 7 games splitting the teams. Teams G and H played in the FAST 4 TENNIS Competition at Regimental Park.

The Year 8 teams were at Knox Prep Courts on the weekend. The A team continued their unbeaten record even with a couple of players missing from the team. The boys won 3-3 (33-25) with a good performance by Kiran Anker to win a good singles match. The B team had a close battle and fort valiantly, but lost by only 3 games. The C team had a solid win 4-2 with a good show of tennis from Michael Drever and William Parry to both win their doubles together and their singles matches. The D team had a great match tying 3-3 but winning by 1 game. The E team had a brilliant win 5-1 whilst the F team won 4-0 overall due a couple of players missing from Barker. Teams H- J played in the FAST 4 TENNIS Competition at Regimental Park.

Overall it was a very well contested fixture between the two schools. Knox won 50% of matches played on the weekend which shows there wasn’t too much between the teams. Well done to all the boys for putting on a great show of tennis for the spectators in all age groups.


Water Polo

1st Grade vs Trinity Grammar. Won 16-13 (3-3, 3-2, 8-3, 2-5)

Goal scorers: Will Turner (3), Alex Trobec, Brent Mitchley, James Winterton, Kevin Zhang, Andrew Hemsworth and Francis Carmody (2 each), Harrison Phelps (1 – own goal).

Congratulations to Alex Trobec and Kevin Zhang on their winning 1st Grade debut! » Read More


Minor concern in the 1sts camp when Trinity went to a 1-3 early lead but strong play from James Winterton , Kevin Zhang and Brent Mitchley saw the teams locked at 3-3 at quarter time. Francis Carmody scored two second quarter goals to add to the one by Andrew Hemsworth and this 3-2 qtr allowed Knox to take a 6-5 half time lead.  The defence was strong and the game rugged and the Knox boys had limited Trinity’s Australian Junior player to 4 goals. The important third quarter set up victory for Knox when Will Turner scored three goals and five others added their names to the score sheet. Three quarter time score was 14-8 and the supporters were slightly more at ease. Slight panic returned in the last quarter when Artemi scored 4 for the visitors but the lead established prior had given the Knox team the breathing space needed in the last quarter despite the Trinity fight back. The team played very well as a unit and extra man attack and counter attack was greatly improved. It was a very entertaining game, boys. Keep it up!  

2nd Grade vs Trinity Grammar. Won 13-1 (4-1, 0-0, 2-0, 5-0)
Goal scorers: John Kyrikos 5, Wes Van Zyl 3, Brady Phillips 2, Spencer Wagner, Jacob Wardley and Rhys Taylor.

A more experienced 2nd grade team put together a great team effort with some great individual efforts from John Kyrikos and Wes Van Zyl. A great opening and even better closing quarter of the game sealed an emphatic win. Amrit William was effective and efficient in goals and Brady Phillips, Harry Drummer and Rhys Taylor put in 100%. Jacob Wardley acted as the distributor with many fine passes finding the mark leading to goals.

16A vs Trinity Grammar. Won 6-5 (1-1, 2-2, 1-0, 2-2) 
Goal scorers: Ted Harrison, Will Hart, Nick DiJohn, Liam O’Neill, Oscar Ley and Aiden Robertson. 
A one goal lead in the third quarter proved decisive in this close encounter between two swimming/driving teams. Coach Cubirka wore his passion on his sleeve and his European experience got us over the line when he instructed Aiden Robertson to take the outside shot in the third  quarter to extend the lead. This proved the difference in what could prove to be an important win for Knox.

16B vs Trinity Grammar. Lost 2-13. (0-3, 0-1, 1-5, 1-4)
Goal scorers: Nic Desmet, George Zhu
Unfortunately the 16B’s this week were beaten by a much more experienced Trinity team. Fitness and ball security are two areas that will be concentrated on, but good effort boys!  

15A vs Trinity Grammar. Lost 2-9 (0-3, 1-2, 1-1, 0-3)
Goal scorers: Nick Trobec, Alex Heintze
A disappointing result for the U15 team, but these are good players who will bounce back!  

14A vs Trinity Grammar. Won 13-4 (4-1, 2-2, 1-0, 6-1)
Goal scorers: Angus Hornery 3, Mitchell Westhuizen 3, Oliver Utteridge 2 Charlie Bladon 2, Bailey Farris, Dylan Cooke and Josh Johnson.

An early lead followed by two close quarters gave the spectators a thrilling, relatively close game until Knox proved their fitness and swimming speed superiority with a 6-1 win over the opposition in the fourth quarter. Goals were fairly evenly shared but Will Saddington (without scoring) was a standout. Team play was vastly improved and the goalkeeping was very solid.

14B vs Trinity Grammar. Lost 5-9 (2-5, 2-1, 1-1, 0-1)
The 14B's had a very competitive game on Saturday but unfortunately did not pull off a win. The boys started strongly and quickly went to a 2-0 lead thanks to the efforts of Co-Captain Elliot Heys scoring both goals with excellent skill. Unfortunately they failed to capitalise on this lead.   We conceded 5 goals before the end of this quarter. Our other Co-Captain Angus Menzies showed leadership in the pool in the third quarter and fought back with two goals. Elliot Heys scored again late but Trinity proved too strong and fast and took the game 9-5.
