Knox Grammar School

From the Head of
Knox Sports Academy Mr Chuck Ardron

Just when you think things have quietened down and Winter sport is finished – Sport is as busy as ever with Track and Field season starting and the Finals of Squash, and there are also boys competing in the NSW Orienteering Championships. » Read More

I would like to congratulate all these boys on their win - the second year running and the 28th time that Knox have won this event.

This is an outstanding result as it shows the depth and breadth of sport that Knox is involved in and also the skills and ability of both students and staff involved.

Squash has 15 teams playing in the Grand Finals at Thornleigh this Saturday. Our 1sts Squash team went down narrowly in the semis but it was a great contest and again I congratulate those involved.

The winter Basketballers continue to prepare for the summer rounds and are doing very well in their competitions. Finally, the Track and Field season is now occurring and whilst not a large group competed last weekend due to other co-curricular activities and exams it was a good number of students who were involved in the 1st invitational. I look forward to this Saturday and seeing more of our students involved in our Track & Field programme. Well done and good luck to them all.

Knox 1, led by Lachlan McKimm, continued their dominance in Division One with a sound 62 – 34 defeat of Purple Cobras. Matthew Rapley starred in Knox 2’s defensive grind out against Force. The boys fought hard right to the final buzzer to end the game tied 33-33. Knox 3 was victorious against the talented Mr Aart’s 12. Harikesh Pushpapathan dominated the game in the post making moves that would rival Shaquille O’Neal. Knox 4 took on Knox 5 in a close battle which left Knox 4 victorious 47-30. Daniel Du (Knox 4) continued his fine form of late and Renier Lambinon starred for Knox 5 coming straight to the game after a long week at Year 8 camp.
