Knox Grammar School

From the Head of
Knox Sports Academy Mr Chuck Ardron

We are now over the half way mark in the term 4 sporting season and it was a tough week-end at Trinity as expected.

Results cross the board remain good, however with our 1sts teams suffering their first defeats; it will be a good test of their coaching and character as to how they respond this coming week-end. » Read More

I would like to remind all students that respect shown is respect earned, and that at Knox, no matter the Sport, or the issue, we show the Referee or the Umpire respect even when we disagree with the decision. This is an important part in ensuring that our teams are treated with respect back. I remind everyone that when has a Referee or Umpire ever changed a decision due to questioning.

I look forward to watching our students in action this week-end.

It has been a wet week of Training but this should not affect our attitude and our desire to achieve the results and the goals that individuals and teams have set for themselves. I remind everyone to check the Fixture age on the Portal as with expected rain this week-end there may be changes.

Good luck and go the Black and Blue.

Basketball
Ellie Manou, MIC of Basketball

The third round of the C.A.S season saw Knox play Trinity. Trinity has proven itself as one of the strongest programs in recent years and gave the Knox basketball program our toughest match up faced to date. » Read More

Knox finished the round with a 17 win, 1 draw and 16 loss record. 

The Open’s year group finished the round with an 8 win and 2 loss record. The 1sts started strong and managed to take the lead early in the game. However, as the game progressed Trinity relentlessly demonstrated their impressive offensive form of late while Knox failed to convert on crucial opportunities resulting in their first defeat of the season 62 – 76. The 2nds matched up well against a strong Trinity side but struggled with ball security and also failed to convert crucial baskets resulting in a 36 – 46 loss. Luke Read of the 9ths had a stellar game dropping an impressive 26 points while leading his team to victory.

The 10’s faced their toughest match up to date finishing the round with 2 wins and 6 losses. The A’s game was tightly contested down to the final seconds with a Trinity player draining a coast to coast off balance jumper to lead his team to a two point victory. The B’s played an impressive team game with all players contributing to the 35 – 26 victory. 

The 9’s hard work, determination and perseverance paid off this round with a 4 win, 1 draw and 3 loss record. The 9A’s are really starting to gel as a team on the court and this was demonstrated by their 46-39 win. Jack Puncher was relentless in all aspects of the game and his teammates followed suit. Some impressive team play was unfortunately not quite enough to get the 9B’s over the line as they fell short of victory by just two points 23-25.

The year 8’s lost their first round as an age group finishing with a 3 win and 5 loss record. The 8A’s went into the game knowing that it would be a tough match up against Trinity’s five state players. The first half was disjointed with players steering away from coach Mike D’Agostino’s system and Trinity capitalised on this and built an impressive lead.  The last 10 minutes of the game saw Knox pull together and work as a team to cut the deficit to a 28-54 loss. Newcomer in the B’s Lucas Chamen had an impressive debut but it wasn’t enough as the B’s squandered an early lead to fall to a 31 – 34 defeat.

We are looking forward to Waverley with our Open’s and Year 8 age group at home and Years 9 and 10 away. 


Cricket

1st XI vs Trinity (A)

Arriving to a superfast outfield and very good batting track the Knox captain Harry Purcell again found himself on the losing side of the toss. Trinity elected to bat and looked purely for survival early on, some tight bowling saw the game meander through many overs and the first breakthrough did not come until the 45th over with an opening partnership of 92 broken by a sharp piece of fielding from Sam Schofield at mid on saw him effect a brilliant run out. » Read More


This brought Austin Waugh to the crease and he immediately played without fear, complimenting the stubbornness of Dedes. Knox kept the runs down with disciplined bowling all day but had to be patient as the 2nd wicket did not fall until the score was 226. Alex McConnell induced a rare false shot from Dedes who was dismissed for 97 off 250 balls. Minutes later Will Graham had Waugh caught at deep square leg brilliantly by Jack Hoyle for 76 but after that no further wickets fell as Trinity ended the  day at 287/ off 99 overs. Superb efforts by Knox all day to keep the run rate under 3 runs per over with such a fast outfield. 

Next week will bring about an interesting decision for Trinity, do they want to declare and ask Knox to attempt a chase and keep them in the game, or will it be a battle for a draw. Either way an intriguing day of play looms. 

2nd XI vs Trinity (H)
Losing the toss and being asked to bat on a flat Curagul pitch was a dream result for Captain Tom Moscow. The 2nd XI have worked hard on further understanding and execution of batting basics and the ‘work in progress’ was on show as Knox slipped to 3/35. Fraser Wilson, a 1st XI regular was in the team coming back from injury and immediately his cool head and good shot selection was on show as a shining example to all around him. He batting with composure and good technique, forming partnerships with Anderson and Moscow to get Knox to all out 129. Wilson finishing last man out for 56 runs. 

In reply, the metronome Todd Anderson was economical and threatening. Trinity finishing on 0/15 off 8 overs. Knox will need to bowl and field exceptionally well to push a win next week. 

3rd XI vs Trinity (H)
Three losses in a row and some team changes saw a very different 3rd XI come up against Trinity at Gillespie. Bowling first, the team efforts with ball and in the field was excellent. Tim Fisher and Ben Close opening the bowling with swing, guile and accuracy. Fisher finishing with 4/11 as Trinity were restricted to 95 all out. 

Chasing down a low score has proved an issue in the past but not on this day. Thank you to Matt Wedlock. The master blaster wicket keeper batsman played with trademark no fear in the beginning of his innings, only to reign it in and play with maturity and poise to see the team home. Finishing on 57 not out. 

4th XI vs Joeys 5th (H) 
A tough match against Joey’s was ahead for the 4th XI. Bowling first on a good pitch and small boundaries. Joey’s helped themselves to 244 runs. A tough target. Stephan Du Plooy  taking 3/24 and bowling with good pace. 
In reply it was the Darcy Hellen - Ford and Harry Howe show. Both boys being moved from the 3rd XI responded with confidence and power. Hellen - Ford opening the batting, finishing with 60. In a close finish to the run chase, Howe finished on 55 not out. Knox narrowly losing by 20 runs in a great game. 

5th XI vs Joeys 6th (H)
The unbeaten 5th XI took to Joeys at Gillespie with high standards and impressive basics. Bowling first Joeys were limited to 137. Leo Bosch finishing with 3/0 off just 1 over.
In reply the chase was lead by Jack Upton who made 35 off only 10 balls to secure the win with the loss of only two wickets. 

10A vs Trinity (H)
10A Players, Nic Gallu, Cam Hewitt, Nick Astridge and Pat Coburn 
Batting collapses and big hearted revivals are the name of the game for our 10As this season and once again individuals stood up in tough times on a good batting pitch at Curagul. It was Nick Woodward with a great 50 when the team was 3/6 in partnership with the tough Nic Gally (37) who began the revival putting on 75 for the fourth wicket. Oliver Graham then came in and made a gutsy 23. Alex Zatz, promoted to number 7 after seeing Nick Astridge through to a hundred a couple of weeks ago then produced his maiden 50. Making 55. Ably supported by James Caprarelli who made 24. Knox finishing on 223. 

In reply, Trinity had a tough hour of batting. Made even tougher by the opening batsman loosing his leg stump to a fast in ducker from Caprarelli. Trinity finishing on 1/18 from 8 overs. An exciting week ahead next week. 

10B vs Trinity (A)
Another strong performance from the 10B’s was due to some fantastic bowling. Crawford Less taking 2/2 and Rahul Bhavnagar 3/6 to reduce Trinity to all out 57. 

In reply, it took the boys no time at all. Chasing the score down in only 7 overs for the loss of 1 wicket. Patrick O’Day finishing on 27 not out. 

10C vs Newington C (H)
A tough game with Newingon making their way to Gillespie. Batting first Knox were on the other end of some powerful batting on a small ground. Newington finishing with 272. Highlights were Chris Laniewski who got career best figures of two wickets. 

In reply, there was great heart shown by Knox. With Adam Holmes once again making a good score of 40 opening the batting. Well supported by Khoby McDonald who blasted 42 late in the order. In the end Knox all out for 115. 

9A vs Trinity (A)
First day of the two day fixtures against Trinity saw Knox win the toss and elect to bat. The innings was the ‘Tom Ivers’ show. Last season batting at number 9, Tom has worked immensely hard at his technique and decision making. In a show of pure class, Tom made 95 and narrowly missed out on a maiden century thanks to a spectacular catch. Main support came in a 98 run partnership from Jason Whiffen who made a composed and mature 30. A late order cameo from Viruna Tennakoon who blasted 30 with two huge sixes lead Knox to the impressive score of 256. A big week next week… 

9B vs Trinity (H)
Knox lost the toss but were sent in on a good Lower Gillespie deck yet with plenty to offer for the bowlers in the opening hour of play. Trinity bowled with precision to keep the team to 1/31 at drinks. The top 3 of Craig, Sloan and Martin (16) did a fantastic job to get us through this difficult period. The back 16 overs saw Knox capitalise on this good start to finish with 7/132. Having so many wickets in hand gave Knox the opportunity to play expansively in the back 16 with Henry Cross making a thrilling 30 including two sixes. Sam Leafe (13), Jamie Cerezo (13) and Johnnie Holland (11) played some late cameos to guide us to a great total. In reply Knox managed to bowl Trinity out for 58. The pick of the bowlers was Johnnie Holland who bowled with tremendous precision with the new ball to finish with 2/2 off three overs. The boys played with an attacking mindset and were rewarded with their intent for wickets. Jamie Boyd was very unlucky not to pick up a wicket and bowled three consecutive maidens heaping pressure on at the other end. Meds Sam Carman (2/4) and Ollie Sloan (2/2) along with spinners Toby Craig (1/4) and Ben Martin (3/8) then finished the job later in the innings with excellent performances. While being overly zealous in a few wicket celebrations the boys played with superb intensity in all facets of the game and should be justly proud of the result.

9C vs Sydney Grammar D (A)
The 9C’s continued their good run of wins thanks to another run chase. Bowling first, Knox restricting Trinity to 5/115 off 30 overs. Wickets being shared around to 5 different bowlers. 

In reply, it was Sam Lilly with 44 not out and once again Archer Bradshaw with 34 who saw our boys home. 

8A vs Trinity (H)
A tough and grounding loss for our A’s to Trinity could hold our boys in very good stead moving forwards. Batting first, we found ourselves 2/6. Thanks to some combative batting from newly promoted Lachy Donaldson (22) and Jayllen Naganayagam (41), we were able to post the competitive target of 101. 

Trinity made short work of the target on a good batting pitch and small boundaries finishing the game in only 17 overs with the loss of 2 wickets. 

8B vs Trinity (A)
Batting first, the 8B’s opening star was again Liam Ridley. Backing up from consistent performances opening the innings, Ridley made his first every 50 as he finished on 60 runs. Well supported by Roberts (25) and Adi Srivatsan (29). Know made a very competitive total of 177. 

In reply Zac Thomas and Luke Schofield set the tone for the innings with the new ball. Schofield has been unlucky so far and bowled with pace and swing in every game. He got just rewards finishing with 2/4. Well supported by Will Fernandez who also took 2/4. Trinity eventually restricted to 123 all out. 

8C vs Trinity (H)
Winning the toss and electing to bat first, captain Hamish Quigley lead from the front with a superb 75 runs. Well supported by Ryan Schokman (20), Michael O’Day (20) and Finn Elliot (27) as the Knox 8C’s made their way to 175. 
In reply, the bowlers bowled in partnerships with great accuracy. Carl Giacomo backed up his 50 last week with 2/5 off 4 overs. Well supported by O’Day 2/11. Trinity eventually all out for 95. 

8D vs Trinity (A)
Bating first against Trinity. The 8E’s witnesses something quite amazing. Michael Adams batted with good technique and power to finish with 100 not out to guide Knox to the fantastic total of 4/182. In reply Knox were calm and did the basics well. Nimay Kallianpur finishing with 2 wickets. Trinity eventually restricted to 5/76. 

8E vs Sydney Grammar D (A)
The 8E winning train continued! Bowling first on a turf pitch against Sydney Grammar. We managed to restrict them to 96 runs. Cooper with and Jonno Cole both taking 2/7. 
In reply the small chase was made easy work of by Will Stammers (19) opening the batting and seeing the boys home.

Fencing

After some exciting footwork relays, the boys were taught the finer points of technique including new actions to surprise their opponents.
» Read More

Key learnings were the parry ripostes and the parry disengagement riposte where the elements of mental chess come into play. Trying out new moves which an opponent is not expecting or learning to predict certain parries and then reposting appropriately is the key to good fencing. 

The boys practised these with gusto and found new ways to finesse their game. The exercises were followed by rapid bouting and practising their new moves. 

A reminder – Italian Relay – Saturday 7 November 2015 from 9am to 12.30pm.  

Golf
David McGowan, MIC Golf

It was another fine day at Avondale today, with all players enjoying their competitions. Knox 1 was pitted against “the old rival” Barker and secured a comfortable 4-0 victory. » Read More

Knox 2 was up against an improving Trinity side and secured a 2½ - 1½ victory.It was another fine day at Avondale today, with all players enjoying their competitions. Knox 1 was pitted against “the old rival” Barker and secured a comfortable 4-0 victory. Knox 2 was up against an improving Trinity side and secured a 2½ - 1½ victory.

Knox A

Pat Ferris led the Knox 1 team, playing some stunning golf throughout the day. His consistency secured his win on the 16th Green 3/2.
Greg Bradford played some “amazing” golf today. Although a little wayward off the tee early, his 310 metre drive down the 14th stunned his opponent into submission, with a comfortable 5/3 win.

Doug Fox also played some impressive golf today.  He was reasonably consistent off the tee, and his accurate chipping and putting kept his opponent at bay. He also secured victory on the 16th Green 3/2. 

Matt Finfer won his match by default on the second green to an opponent who was clearly unwell form the start.

This week’s Quotes:
“Golf isn't a game, it's a choice that one makes with one's life." 

“ There's something intrinsically therapeutic about choosing to spend your time in a wide, open park - like setting that non - golfers can never truly understand.”

The school’s photographer took a number of photographs today. I hope to be able to pass these on in due course.

Knox B

The Knox B team was also able to take advantage of a late withdrawal due to illness from the Trinity side, with Charles Balog enjoying the afternoon with his father as caddy.

Will Ryan played some impressive golf at times today, but became a little inconsistent towards the end of his round and was defeated 3/1. 

Sam Druce also played some solid golf early, and had a good chance to finish on the 17th, but ended up squaring his match with a fast finishing Trinity opponent.

Nicholas Anderson fought a long and valiant match throughout the day. His steady play enabled him to secure a 2 up victory on the last green.

All teams have a bye next Saturday – Please enjoy a club round.

Mountain Biking

A beautiful Saturday morning at Sydney Olympic Park saw the Knox MTB team taking on one of the more challenging courses of the racing circuit. » Read More

Barker College was the host this week and with a full complement of schools attending this race meeting;  it promised to be a great day of racing.

Our MTB team was eager to impress in all three race formats today. Our coaches Jacob and Cam supported by James Cooper who joined the team as a first aid support encouraged the boys to get as many race meters in to their legs as possible. 

A great training session during the week in St Ives was the base for some great performances today. Knox riders won most of their divisions and individual races today and also performed very strongly in the relay race.

The final result traditionally will be sent to us mid-week by the organisers, but we can safely say it was a very successful day of racing. 

Squash
Eric van Arkkels, MIC Squash

Despite the Knox 1st team having a bye they still decided to come in and train showing great dedication to their sport. » Read More

Our Knox 2 team won 3-0. This team is improving every week showing that hard work in training has its rewards, a great team effort.

Knox 7 just going down 1-2P Kwon E Yan this team works very hard on improving the little things and in time will show the benefit of their commitment.  

The result of the Knox 13 team having a 3-0 win against Barker 10 who are three divisions higher, shows that Knox squash overall is looking healthy.  

Our Knox 8 team travelled to Willoughby to play Willoughby 7 in three very entertaining games, despite playing with a man short Knox 8 showed great determination to win 3-0 with C William stepping up as No1 player, and Year 7 student A Soonius having to also play up and play twice as well.
 
Overall some very good games of Squash played with special thanks to those boys having to play twice – a great effort. 
 
I also would like to commend the Knox Squash Teams on their overall sportsmanship – it is very pleasing to see.


Tennis
Ben Higgins, MIC Tennis

Saturday 31st October 2015 saw Knox take on Trinity away. The 1st team split the doubles with both pairs getting a set each. » Read More

The 1st team missed their opportunity in the doubles to get a good lead over Trinity. The singles went down to the wire with Max Nguyen winning a good singles match 6-4, whilst Pedro lost a close match 5-7. This meant we were all square going into the last singles matches with Hugo La Hei winning a solid match. It was down to Captain Cooper Cole to try and get a comfortable win. Unfortunately the young No.1 for Trinity was too strong this time for Cooper. The 1st lost by only 5 games, but are eager to rectify their loss to a win next time we play Trinity next term. The 2nd team had very solid performance winning 6-2 overall, with a good debut performance from Andy Xuan splitting the doubles and winning his singles match 6-0. The 3rd team won very comfortably 6-0 whilst the 4th team won 5-1 with a good show from Joshua Nairn winning his singles 6-1. Teams 5th -8th played an internal match play at Morona Avenue, with some impressive tennis played.

The 10A team played at home at Turramurra Park and won 5-1 overall with some great tennis played by Andy Chen to win both singles and doubles. The B team showed their strength to win 6-0 overall and only drop 6 games, whilst the C team also won 6-0 with a great performance by Thomas Finlay to win both singles and doubles comfortably. The D team continued the good record for the Year 10 teams to win 5-1 overall. Teams E and F played in an internal FAST 4 TENNIS competition at Regimental Park. The boys are improving each week and showing a greater understanding of how to construct a point a lot better.

The 9A team had a harder time against Trinity losing 1-5 with some very close matches not showing the eventual score line. The B team turned things around to win 5-1 with a great performance by Oscar Geddes to win both singles and doubles. The C team had a close match tying 3-3 but losing on games. The D team won very well 5-1 with a great display by Reyon Desai in both singles and doubles. Teams E- H played in an internal FAST 4 TENNIS competition at Regimental Park. The boys are getting stronger and more confident with their play and it is showing in their match results.

The Year 8A continued their unbeaten run winning very well 5-1 with a solid show by Hugo Thomas in both singles and doubles. The B team won 4-2 with a great victory by Lucas Evans in singles. The C team won 5-1 along with the D team also winning 4-2 which continued the great weekend of victories for Knox. Teams E- J played in an internal FAST 4 TENNIS competition at Regimental Park. The boys were competing well with some of our Year 10 boys in their groups and continued to work hard and keep positive throughout their matches which was great to see.

Overall it was a very successful weekend and a shame the 1sts couldn’t quite do it this time but the boys from all teams are keen to get that 100% win record against Trinity. Knox won 81% of matches played on the weekend which is our best ever record against Trinity. Well done to all the boys who played some great tennis. Keep up the good work!

1st Grade vs. Newington. Lost 9-14

Goal scorers: James Winterton3, Will Turner 3, Andrew Hemsworth1, Liam Daniels 1 and Alex Trobec 1.

This game was a tight tussle from the start to the finish with Knox not allowing the experienced Newington team to skip away too far and they were never too far off the pace. » Read More

All too often Knox conceded a goal but then retaliated straight away by scoring a goal to keep the score relatively close.  Overall the 5 goal loss was promising and showed that the Knox boys can compete against the best teams in this competition.  Newington are expected to remain undefeated to retain their championship title this year and I am sure that our score will be one of the closest that they encounter. Standout players were James Winterton, Will Turner, Liam Daniels and Harry Phelps.

2nd Grade vs. Newington. Lost 2-5 
Goal scorers: John Kyrikos 1, Jacob Wardley 1.

The Newington goalkeeper was the hero of the day as he stopped four swim away shots and at least four extra man attempts from the determined Knox boys to keep his team ahead. Some inexperience cost the Knox team today, and further work will be done at training on improving the angles before taking a shot.  They are a very competitive team and can only improve!  Jacob Wardley, Rhys Taylor and John Kyrikos were strong while Amrit William, Spencer Wagner and Harry Drummer were very valuable contributors.

16A vs Newington. Lost 5-8
Goal scorers: Tom Winterton 3, Liam O’Neill 1, Aidan Robertson 1.

Discipline both before and during the game today was crucial in the Knox performance. It took the first quarter and part of the second quarter for our team to warm up and switch on, and once this occurred the game was very close. The Knox boys, to their credit, never gave up chasing the lead and the game was really in the balance until the final throw. The boys were competitive throughout the entire game and will prove difficult to beat if they concentrate and play to their ability in future games. Tom Winterton played well and his shots on goal from centre forward and outside kept the Knox team in the hunt. Nick Di John and Xavier Wall were heavily marked but provided plenty of attacking spirit in this exciting game.

16B vs. Newington. Lost 2-14
Goal scorers: George Zhu 1, Sam Fitzmaurice 1

This was a game with many opportunities at either end but the Knox boys had trouble converting their opportunities and Newington took many of theirs. George Zhu had a good game earing several exclusions, but the team was not able to capitalise on their opportunities. 

15A vs. Newington. Won 18-5
Goal scorers: Will Kablau 4, Nick Trobec 4 Adam Swiderski 2 and Alex Heintze 2.

A great team performance from the boy’s today and they never gave up trying from start to finish. Nic Trobec and Will Kablau dominated at centre forward and Austin Wagner was solid in goals. Ben Nyer, Alex Heintze and all the others were congratulated on their never say die attitude and the result was a satisfying win to a very deserving team. Whilst this is the first year that the U15 competition has been held, we can boast that Newington have never beaten us in this age group!

14A vs. Newington. Lost 7-9
Goal scorers: Mitch Westhuizen 2, Angus Menzies 2, Will Saddington 2, Bailey Farris 1.

Despite a great team effort against a very strong opposition, some crucial decisions went against us and lost opportunities proved costly. A very disciplined game was played by all, but unfortunately we lost by a narrow margin.  Will Saddington had a particularly good defensive game and restricted the best Newington player to being scoreless. He also scored two great goals. Pat Hogan, Mitch Westhuizen and Angus Hornery were impressive with Bailey Farris and Charlie Bladon very solid. Angus Menzies showed his improvement by scoring two goals and always looking dangerous.

14B vs. Newington. Lost 2-8
Goal scorers: Elliot Heys 1 and Alvin Fu 1.

4-1, 4-1, 7-1, 8-2
The 14B's started slowly this week and found it hard to find their feet in the game. Newington proved to be a very physical opponent and the boys struggled to overcome their force. Mitch Longstaff had numerous excellent saves in goals and continued to show his talent at this critical position. Co-captain Elliot Heys scored in the 1st quarter providing strong leadership. James Riordan provided excellent defence in the front with sound understanding of play and good skill. Newington never relented and their physical play stagnated our turnovers and ability to implement pressing defense. Alvin Fu had many saves in goals and together with Mitch, the boys kept Newington's score in check. Alvin also showed good understanding of shot selection, scoring in the 4th. Will Bondy and Ryan Thom provided our team with all round skills and contributed to slowing Newington's score. The final score was not really indicative of our boys' participation; they were most definitely in the game!
