From the Head of
Knox Sports Academy Mr Chuck Ardron

Last weekend saw the half way mark of the winter sporting season against Cranbrook and there were some great results across all activities.» Read More

Highlights for the weekend were the Friday night Football on Knox 1, and I thank all those students and supporters who came out to watch the game under lights on Knox 1. I also thank Cranbrook by making it possible by agreeing to play.

This was followed on Saturday by wins in Tennis, Rugby AFL and other Sports were able to enjoy their Saturday sport.

It is great to see the Volleyball 2nds have a win and the Volleyball 1sts have a competitive game against Cranbrook. It was enjoyable to watch and I would encourage all those involved in Volleyball to keep up the good work as they continue to improve this season.

I was fortunate to watch some of our E and F teams in many Sports and these boys had some great wins and also some large losses. However, I know that the coaches and the boys continue to work on skill set to ensure the goals of enjoyment, fun and skill acquisition are achieved. Congratulations to our Cross Country team and Knox Fit boys involved in the CAS GPS Cross Country as they again had a great showing at Riverview and also some of the boys backed up in the Balmoral Burn on Sunday. I would like to thank and congratulate those boys as it was a big ask, yet they not only did their but for charity but also whilst flying the Knox flag.

I wish those boys involved in the Rep Rugby season all the best this week in their games at Cranbrook.

This week-end is a rest week-end and I encourage all boys to spend the time wisely and give their bodies a chance to recover before we resume in Week 8 against Waverley.

SENIOR SCHOOL SPORT

AFL

Under 14s Blue
The Knox Blue U/14s took on a red-hot Waverley side at Bat and Ball Oval in their third game of the year. The game began with the Waverley side gaining the early ascendency with the opening few goals before the team began to settle late in the first quarter. » Read More

After some good work in the middle from Harrison Rowles and Braeden Campbell we started winning the ball back and the physicality shown by Henry Smith gained us back the momentum going into quarter time. The second quarter was a real arm wrestle with the ball locked in our forward line for most of the time. Matt Hely played a terrific quarter to nullify the effort of their dominant ruck man allowing for several shots at goal from Angus Menzies, and Ed Toole with Christian Knight’s attack on the football bringing some great passages of play. The second half was again going in our favour as the ball was predominantly flowing forward thanks to some good work from our defenders Will Fernandez, Will Chamberlain and Nathan Plenge. Owen Lees kicked a spectacular goal in the third quarter from a tight angle to tighten up the scores. In the last quarter it was a close affair with both sides fighting hard at every contest. Some handy work from Ed Toole and the presence of Jordan Moses in the forward line got the scoreboard back in our favour. After regaining the lead with less than five minutes to go unfortunately one of Waverley’s few forward entries in the quarter resulted in a late goal. Well done to all involved for such an exciting game and making the school proud and to all the parents involved who helped out over the weekend.
Score: Waverley 47-Knox Blue 43
Best players: Henry Smith, Braeden Campbell, Harrison Rowles, Ed Toole, Will Chamberlain and Xavier Pereira
Coach Andy Morris

Under 14s Black
It was a convincing game, showing all players, coaches and spectators how well the U14 team can really play. The game began with a quick goal, straight out of the centre, setting the tone for the whole game. The team was able to work together with diligence and integrity. Teamwork was evident with both year 7s and 8s combining into one solidified team. The team played with finesse and grace, almost seeming effortless. One passage of play demonstrated how the team can elegantly switch the ball from one side of the field to the other. Furthermore, the two year 7 boys, Jayllen Naganayagam starting in the forward line and Oli Bendrien starting on the wing were able to showcase their skills and determination, leading to a superb game. This was an impressive performance from all players in the team leading to an impressive win. Well done boys.
 
Score: Knox Black 99-Cranbrook 19

Knox vs Trinity
Coming off a wet weather weekend the Knox boys were eager to get there hands on the footy. This week saw Knox take on Trinity who had previously been a strong side. However this was not going to deter the Knox boys.

The first quarter came as a surprise as it was rather a tug-o-war like game to start. While the Knox defence held strong the first half of the quarter saw the Knox forward line kick 3 behinds before booting their first goal. While a strong showing from the Trinity forward line also managed to kick one goal of the term.

Meanwhile, the second quarter came around and Knox came out of the gates strong. With booting the first 2 goals. Intimidating the Trinity back line, the Knox forward line kick a solid 4 goals in the term. This was lead by the midfield and consistent skills that kept the ball in Knox's forward 50.

The third quarter was were Knox took the lead and managed to hold Trinity off. The Knox defence who have been strong all game, managed to turn around all attempts by the Trinity midfield to enter the defensive 50. This combined with a strong midfield attack has allowed Knox to put the pressure on the Trinity defence.

The final term saw a strong showing from the Knox forwards and also the midfield. With consistency from all areas Knox managed to hold of Trinity's final attack and managed to win the game.

A good solid team effort from the Knox boys lead them to overcome trinity by 61 points. 

Knox defeats Trinity 84 to 23
Goal Kickers: Luke Parkes 5, James Robertson and Nick Barclay 2, Zac Stewart, Ryan de Vries and Alex Dooling-Cook with 1
Best: Luke Parkes, James Robertson, Tom Kite, Ryan de Vries, Nick Barclay and Campbell Saddington

First XVIII
The Firsts participated in a round robin competition against Cranbrook and Waverley as part of the CAS competition.

Waverley
 From the very start Waverley played the game with real intensity and attack on the ball. At times they made the Knox boys look lost, but as the boys slowly got into it, they managed to find their feet and take control of the game.

Once the Knox boys took control and got the game on their terms, they simply couldn’t be stopped. This was led by the ever-reliable Ollie Morton who showed great composure and poise under pressure and worked hard all day. Ollie’s efforts were complimented by Ben Parks who demonstrated a willingness to put his body on the line and continued to run and carry and kick long to his forward targets. Notable contributors also included Sam Ritchens, Alex Selvarajah and Will Burdon-Smith who played their roles well.

Overall it was a team effort that resulted in the win and I was extremely impressed with the team’s ability to turn defensive play into offensive play and restrict Waverly to just a total of 6 points.

Knox 36 defeated Waverley 6
Best players: Ollie Morton, Ben Parks, Sam Ritchens, Josh Tighe, Oliver Roe and Will Burdon-Smith

Cranbrook
The Knox boys were out of the blocks early and immediately applied scoreboard pressure to Cranbrook. Throughout the entirety of the match the Knox boys were harder at the ball for longer and didn’t give Cranbrook a chance. While Knox won the contested ball, they turned this into an outside ball which allowed Lachlan Bruce and Bailey Bourn to use the outside run and with efficient ball use gave their forwards every opportunity to kick goals.

Ben Parks and Josh Tighe played significant roles throughout the match and it was their ball use and football smarts which made them valuable contributors against Cranbrook. Both players rarely turned over the ball and were always thinking ahead. In defence Knox skipper, Oscar James played a solid game down back, setting up play and applying many defensive acts.

Overall, I was extremely impressed with the boys’ effort because they played as a team, used the ball efficiently, were tough at the contest, switched the ball when they had to and went through the corridor and set up play.

Knox 42 defeated Cranbrook 2
Best players: Ben Parks, Josh Tighe, Lachlan Bruce, Bailey Bourn, Alex Selvarajah and Oscar James

Cross Country
Nick Walker, Head Middle Distance and Cross Country Coach

The Knox Cross Country team tackled two consecutive days of tough competition this past weekend. » Read More

Saturday saw the CIS qualification round run on the scenic yet challenging Riverview campus. Early Sunday morning, four teams of four boys each entered the schools relay at the Balmoral Burn. Living up to its name, many of our boys will still be feeling the lactic burn into the first half of the school week. 

A Knox record of 22 boys competed in the junior race at Riverview. Yet again, the boys performed for an impressive 3rd place overall amongst fierce CAS and GPS competition. Rising star James Constable picked up his first top-5 performance for the season in CAS and a convincing CIS selection. Mitchell Roberts added valuable points to Knox’s score with a 7th place, with Nik Kaderavek and Angus Menzies placing 12th and 13th respectively. Eight Knox boys finished in the top 20 whilst another six finished in the top 50.

Inspired by this showing, the intermediates completed the technical 6km course, with the team finishing 3rd in CAS and 15 runners competing. Tom Gordon (6th) and Ben Fitton (8th) posted two convincing runs with their work ethic and drive powering them through the race. Kent Felton (21st) and Ben Jackson (24th) backed the team up with solid anchoring performances. Furthermore, most runners finished in the top-50 in CAS, convincing coaches of a high level of potential and depth from this age group.

The seniors put together a fantastic showing of teamwork, with the four runners running within 100 metres of each other for most of the race. Vice-captain Duncan Ballantine finished in 14th, while Andrew Crosling (16th) and Captain Vaughn Wickenden (17th) crossed the line in consecutive places. Track and Field Captain Ryan Boot came out for his first cross country run of the year, finishing in 21st to show that he really can do it all.

The Cross Country program continues to build momentum as we approach the Championship end of the season and the School Track & Field Championships are rapidly approaching in Week 2 of Term 3. I would encourage students to become involved in some regular training. The Track & Field and Cross Country training sessions are as follows to the end of June/July holidays:

Fencing

NSW Schools Championships U/15 boys - Saturday 30 May
Results; 7th Ken Kawaura, 16th Jackson Young, 40th Zac Loofs, 46th Jonathan Duff, 55th Isaac Gomez. » Read More

Congratulations!  All boys fenced very well and their bouts were close. Isaac Gomez enjoyed his very first competition.  Ken Kawaura and Jackson Young have qualified in the top 32 for the finals of The Schools Championships to be held on the 13th of June. Good luck for the finals.

Training update
Footwork relays were the focus this week, with boys competing against each other in teams to practise their lunges and stepping forward. This is an important leg strengthening exercise, as correct footwork helps to score a hit and also to avoid being scored against, the foundation of good fencing. After the relays, the boys practised beat attacks during their bouting, gaining experience on their use by appropriate timing and strategy.

Knox vs Cranbrook CAS Round 5 » Read More

Round 5 was a goal scorer’s delight with the ball hitting the net 130 times for the day! 24 wins, 6 draws and only 4 losses were recorded for the Knox teams. Hat tricks were also the order of the round with many boys knocking in multiple goals.
The Opens kicked of the weekend early with the annual Friday night football under lights on Knox 1. The 2nd XI started proceedings with a tight match which ended in a 1-1 draw the only goal going to James De Meyrick. The 1st XI started cautiously but managed to go into halftime with a 2-0 lead until the second half saw the floodgates open to notch up a 6-0 win with Charlie Baker claiming 4 goals for himself. The 3rds got up 1-0 with a Tom Lilley strike along with the 4ths keeping their unbeaten streak winning 2-0 with a screamer from James Lawrence sealing the win.

Year 10 had another mixed bag of results with quite a few boys out of the As. The boys reached down deep to graft out a couple of wins and draws backing up in a great display of year group spirit. The 10As managed the biggest win of their season to date getting up 3-0 with goals to Ethan Allen, Oliver McKnight and Alex Duffy.

Year 9 had another successful round of matches with 4 wins to the As Bs Es and Fs and hard fought draws to the Cs Ds and Gs. The 9As and 9Bs have got themselves to the top of the CAS table with a 5-0 win in the As (a hat-trick to Olly Wiggin) and a 3-0 win in the Bs.

Year 8 had 6 wins from 7 matches. A hat-trick from Harry Borbilas handed a solid 6-3 win to the 8Bs. Henry Cross grabbed 2 goals in the 8Cs 3-0 win and Samuel Leafe got 1 in his man of the match performance in the 8Es 2-0 win. The 8Fs and 8Gs both won in two mismatched games against Es and Fs respectively grafting out their victories 1-0 and 2-1.

Year 7 looked to have had the only clean sweep of the day only to have a goal scored in the final seconds in the 7As match to draw 3-3 after clawing back a 0-2 score line at halftime and looked to have clenched the win only to concede right at the death from a corner. The 7Bs consolidated their rank at the top of the CAS table with an 8-0 win and double figure wins to the 7Ds 10-1 (with Harry Wilson banging in 6 goals) and 7Es 10-0 win were only outdone by the 7Hs massive total of 13-1 with goals coming from eight different scorers, including another hat trick of the day coming from Jackson Thurkettle.

Karate

The Knox Karate teams came together for a grading test last Saturday 30 May. » Read More

The boys were assessed by head instructor Howard Lipman (8th Dan) and the grading was run by former coach and Old Boy Alex Lloyd (2nd Dan). 

Clayton Ho (Year 12) impressed with his speed and technical precision, while young Zac Zibaee (Year 7) had everyone running for cover with his powerful punch. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the session, and Belts and Certificates will be awarded later this term.

Rugby

Last Saturday, 30 May, Knox played Cranbrook to complete the first round of the CAS competition. » Read More

The 1st XV with four wins and sitting on top of the competition table took on Cranbrook at home. A very keen group of Knox students offered their vocal support as the Knox team produced a very fine display of attacking rugby to score 54 points. The Cranbrook team proved to be a tougher opponent than perhaps was anticipated and kept pace with Knox throughout the first half and into the second half before conceding to the point scoring onslaught of the final 20 minutes. The ever present Harry Chapman scored two tries, the first reminiscent of Josh Morris in State of Origin I, chasing a kick and winning the race to regather the ball and dive over. He followed this with a try from close to the line forcing his way over. Young five eighth Tom Woodcock had a day to remember, scoring a total of 22 points with a try, seven conversions and a penalty goal.

The form of the open rugby teams continues to impress with three wins against Cranbrook. The 2nd XV won 10 – 8 in a tight match while the 3rd XV won 60 – 3 and the 4th XV 74 – 0. The 5th XV and 6th XV met sterner opposition from St Joseph’s College. The renowned depth of St Joseph’s rugby was evident when the Knox 5th XV were defeated by their 10th XV 7 – 17 and the Knox 6th XV lost to the 12th XV 7 – 34.

The Under 16’s had three wins and a draw from their four matches. The 16D’s and 16E’s combined to play a Shore 16E/F team producing a fine effort to win 27 – 5. The 16B’s and 16C’s won their respective matches against Cranbrook 22 – 7 and 35 – 5. The 16A’s established a 12 – 0 lead at halftime but an excellent kicking game from the Cranbrook five eighth continuously turned the Knox team around. Cranbrook came back with two converted tries to take a 14 – 12 lead before Knox exhibited great control and compiled several phases of play to work their way effectively towards the Cranbrook try line. Halfback and Captain Ben Hansen showed an alertness to seize an opportunity to dive over the line from the breakdown. The conversion took Knox to a 19 – 14 led but Cranbrook replied with a try to level the score 19 – 19.

The 15A’s produced what was perhaps their finest performance of the season to win 47 – 0. The 15B’s unfortunately did not have a match but the 15C’s won 45 – 0, the 15C’s 88 – 0 and the 15D’s defeated Shore 15F’s 19 – 17. The 14A’s suffered a loss losing 7 – 24 to Cranbrook. The 14B’s and 14C’s won their matches against Cranbrook 29 – 0 and 39 – 0. The 14D’s lost to Shore 14E’s 5 – 40 but the 14E’s did so very well to win their match against Shore 14F’s 30 – 10. The 13A’s went down in a close encounter with Cranbrook 12 – 15. The 13B’s and 13C’s had big wins 59 – 0 and 110 – 0. To their credit, the young Cranbrook players never relented in their efforts. The 13E’s lost to St Joseph’s 0 – 85 and the 13F’s lost to Shore 13G’s 14 – 17. Undoubtedly, the team to watch is the 13D’s who play a free flowing attacking game. The “Small Blacks” defeated St Augustine’s 41 – 7.

Tennis
Ben Higgins MIC Knox Tennis

Saturday 30th May 2015 saw Knox take on Cranbrook at home for our Open teams. » Read More

The 1st team did not have a good start losing all doubles to start off 0-4 down. This meant it was down to the singles to get a draw and then try and win on games. Jamie Fraser went up a few gears to win his singles 6-2, whilst Hugo La Hei had a good win 6-4. It was down to Max Nguyen and Pedro Papangelis to win comfortably. Max played a tactically smart singles match to win 6-1 whilst Pedro outclassed his opponent 6-3 with some amazing on the run angled shots. The 2nd team won with ease 8-0 with two good singles performances from Charlie Wong and Lachlan Walker. The 3rd and 4th team played a friendly match against Sydney Grammar. The 3rd team won with ease 6-0, whilst the 4th team won 4-2 as Knox had to forfeit a match due to a no show. The 5th-7th teams played internal match at Morona Avenue.

The 10A team had a bye this weekend.  The B and C teams played a friendly against Sydney Grammar. The B team drew 3-3 but lost on count back by 4 games. The C team won with ease 6-0 only dropping 9 games. 10D team played an internal match at Morona Avenue.

Balmoral Burn
Knox students pushed their pain thresholds right to the limit to raise money for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation at the 2015 Balmoral Burn. » Read More

James Steel, Jacques Horbach, William Constable, Sam Rockliff, James Constable, Tom Constable, Austin Thomson, Jackson Croker, Tom Ivers, Ewan Shingler, John Kyrikos, Ben Fitton, Duncan Ballantine, Andrew Crosling, Tim Walsh and Ryan Boot all represented Knox at the grueling event. By committing to this worthy cause, the students raised over $3000 to go towards essential and often life-saving medical equipment in Paediatric Wards, Neonatal Units, Maternity and Emergency Departments in over 229 hospitals Australia-wide.

The Track & Field community considers the Balmoral Burn as one of the most daunting events on the running calendar. However, the Knox runners put this aside to achieve some excellent results. Sam Rockliff clocked an outstanding 1m 51sec to win the Year 3-6 Boys individual race with William Constable in second place with a time of 2m 9sec. Both boys were fortunate to have their medals presented by the Prime Minister and a rare photo opportunity. Jacques Horbach and James Steel crossed the line in 42nd and 44th places respectively and in combination with William Constable the boys used the Balmoral Burn as a Social Justice research project and they should be proud of the considerable amount of money they have raised for charity. 

The Senior School boys fielded three teams to compete in the Senior School Head of the Hill Relay. Out of the 50 teams entered Knox students should be proud of their 4th (7:08), 8th (8:11) and 14th (8:34) places.
