Knox Grammar School

From the Head of
Knox Sports Academy Mr Chuck Ardron

Congratulations to all on last weekend's Sport. There were some great wins but even more importantly there was some great competition between ourselves, Waverley and the other schools that we competed against. » Read More

I encourage all students to take advantage of the holiday offerings from the opening hours of the Athletic Development Centre, the Aquatic Centre and the Camps and Trainings that have been provided for teams and individuals.

With the Track and Field season soon to be upon us, I encourage any student wishing to be involved to take advantage of the opportunities of Track & Field Training in the holidays.

With 4 weeks to go of the winter sports season and a 4 week break from School Sport it is important not to lose the fitness and strength that has been achieved by all so far.

I wish the Snow Sports team all the best in the coming competition over the holidays, all the Rugby boys involved in the Bathurst Orange trip and the Footballers in their CIS Cup game. I congratulate the Year 9 and 10 Bill Turner Cup Team on their win yesterday which now puts them into the final 32 teams from NSW, QLD and VIC. I also wish them good luck in their next game.

Finally, I wish all students a happy and safe holiday and look forward to seeing them all back in the black and blue in Term 3.

HIGHLIGHTS

Rugby Sevens
Mr Glenn Stephenson, MIC Rugby

On Saturday 13th June, the 2015 NSW Primary Schools Rugby Sevens State Championships were played. » Read More

The championship finals consisted of 16 primary school teams from various locations throughout the state. All teams competed in a round robin format at Sydney’s Academy of Sport in Narrabeen during the morning, with the Knox Prep team winning two of three pool games, before also emerging victorious in their Shield playoff game. All the players then travelled to Allianz Stadium in order to compete for the Shield Final, which was held prior to the NSW Waratahs v QLD Reds Super Rugby fixture.

A hard fought battle ensued, with Knox ultimately prevailing in order to win the Shield Final and be crowned 5th overall in NSW. This was an incredible result for the team and capped off an unbelievable experience which the boys clearly enjoyed and will surely recall with fond memories.

I would like to thank both Mr Lewis and Mr van Bussel for their outstanding coaching and commitment to the players, and also to the many parents who provided continual support and encouragement to the team throughout the day.

AFL

Knox Blue 14s
The Knox Blue team lined up on Saturday for the last time before the winter break looking to take the points against a full strength Cranbrook side. » Read More

The early going was tough with all the momentum with Cranbrook, taking the early goals. Knox responded with some good work out of the middle from Matt Hely, Braeden Campbell and Henry Smith. In the second term Cranbrook got the jump on Knox with a few early goals, despite Knox having more of the ball with some nice passages of play from Jude Yates, Nathan Plenge and Harrison Rowles who made the ball flow forward from the back half. Despite going into half time down by four goals, the boys responded in the third quarter and dominated the inside 50’s with some handy work from Severin Fairfax and Xavier Pereira on the wing and from Ed Toole in the middle tagging their dominant midfielder thus helping us get back into the match. Owen Lees provided some handy work to keep the ball moving forward and Harrison Rowles slotted a freakish goal from the boundary line. Unfortunately at the final change we were still three goals down, but with the wind behind them and all the momentum they still had belief they could win the match. Harrison Rowles moved forward and got an early goal to help them get within two goals with the ball locked in our forward half thanks to some great defensive work all day from Jordan Moses, Angus Menzies and Will Chamberlain. Liam Parnell, Will Fernandez and Christian Knight kept the ball moving forward once more as the boys hit the front with a few minutes left. Despite a late chance at goal from Cranbrook, Knox held on for a spirited one point victory. 

Best players: Braeden Campbell, Henry Smith, Harrison Rowles, Owen Lees, Angus Menzies and Ed Toole.
Knox Blue 5.6.41 defeated Cranbrook 5.5.40 
Coach: Andy Morris

U14 Knox Black 9.12.66 def. Waverly 1 6.8.42. After a tough loss against St Ives the week before, the U14 team showed how well they can play. A dominating game from the Knox team saw them 6 goals in front at half time, leading the team was the discipline and skills of Oscar Geddes, Oli Bendrien and Fraser Goldthorpe. However, after the half time break, Waverly decided they weren't done and came back with a couple of skilful goals. Nevertheless, the defence and integrity of all the back line was able to hold Waverly off and help the team to a well deserved win.
 
Knox Under 16s vs. Waverley 
 
This week Knox was to take on Waverley and, after the heartbreaking loss last time they met, Knox was eager to take Waverley head on.
The first quarter saw a strong start from Waverley and while they kicked the first 2 goals Knox’s midfield managed to fight back and by the end of the term Knox was up by a point. Both teams kicked 5 goals.
To begin the second quarter Knox was determined to kick the first goals of the term, which they did, kicking 4 for the total of the quarter. Whilst keeping a strong lead of 3 points. Waverley’s midfield efforts were the only thing keeping them in the game.

To begin the second half Knox’s defense kept Waverley to just 4 scoring shoots for the whole quarter. Knox managed to kick 5 goals for the whole term meaning they were in a strong position to start the final term.
The final quarter started and saw Knox continue what was a strong third quarter and kick 3 goals in the opening 10 minutes but Waverley were just too strong on offence and out of the center, coming back from an 11 point deficit, they managed to kick 5 goals in the quarter and turn the game around.

Goal Scorers: Alex Doling-Cook 6, Campbell Saddington 5, Isaac Selvarajah 2, Duncan McMaster, James Robertson, Luke Parks and Nick Barclay all with 1

Best players: Tom Kite, Alex Doling-Cook, Campbell Saddington, James Robertson, James Bennett and James Roffe.
Coach: Mitchel De Vries

Firsts
The First XVIII had a round robin fixture against Waverley and Cranbrook. 

Waverly Match Report

From the very start Waverley played the game with real intensity and attack on the ball. Once again they made the Knox boys look fragile around the contest. Due to the slippery and dewy surface of the ground, the boys’ skills and run lacked a little at times and it was not until the second half that the boys hit their straps and provided ultimate scoreboard pressure 
In the second half of the match the Knox boys handled the conditions a lot better and this was demonstrated with a consistent team effort all round. Connor McFadden played well all game, turning inside ball into outside ball, running and carrying with the ball and constantly applying enormous tackling pressure. This was also led by Alex Selvarajah who showed great athletic ability in the ruck. First gamer, Jack Brasher was impressive for his first game and he led hard and took control of the game.
Overall, it was a team effort and everyone contributed to the team’s win. Even though the Knox boys did start slow, it was good to see the boys fight through adversity and have a go.

Best players: Connor McFadden, Alex Selvarajah, Alex McConnell, Josh Tighe, Jack Brasher and Pat Moses.

Cranbrook

The Knox boys immediately took control of the game and continued their strong form in the second half of the Waverley match. The defenders were feeding off turnovers from Cranbrook and just continued to run and carry. This was led by the courageous and tough Alex McConnell, the ever-reliable Max Barnum and Knox skipper Oscar James who turned defense into attack. It was impressive to see.
Half way through the match the intensity of the game lifted, and the Knox boys were up to the challenge. The Knox boy’s defensive intent (tackling, shepherds and spoils) was simply outstanding. This allowed the midfielders to gain first use of the ball and deliver it to the forwards cleanly. Towards the last 10 minutes of the match the boys were slightly complacent and Cranbrook managed to sneak a few goals.
Overall, I was extremely pleased with the boys’ efforts as it was team performance and there were no passengers. They used the ball efficiently throughout the entirety of the match, switched the ball when they had to and took the game on through the corridor, which was pleasing to see. An awesome effort boys, well done.

Best players: Oscar James, Alex McConnell, Will Burdon-Smith, Josh Tighe, James Knox and Sam Ritchens.

Coach: Thomas Harvey

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

This past week has been an exciting week for Knox Grammar School with many of the senior and junior cross-country athletes producing some fantastic results in both the NSW CIS Cross-Country Championships and the Trinity Cross-Country Relays over the weekend. » Read More

On the 11th of June 2015 Knox had a total of 19 athletes competing from both the Senior and Junior schools at the NSW CIS Cross-Country Championships held at the Eastern Creek Raceway.

With a couple of months of solid training Knox had some fantastic results from the Senior School with James Constable finishing in 3rd place in the 13 years boys. James is one of the best cross-country runners at the school and continues his success in his transition from the Prep school to the Senior School. We wish James the best of luck at the NSW All-Schools Cross-Country next month. James also led his team to victory with the 13 years Knox team winning gold for the team event. The team also consisted of new comer Mitchell Westhuizen (14th place), new comer Angus Menzies (24th place), Ewan Shingler (25th place) and Henry Roberts (31st place). This team is the future of Knox cross-country and we look forward to watching the team get stronger and faster over the coming years. This is the first time in years we have received any medals at the senior school for Cross-country at CIS. 

In the 14s Mitchell Roberts had a strong run finishing in 19th place which was a fantastic result as the 16s comprised of more than 70 runners. Not too far behind was Nik Kaderavek (31st) and Jackson Croker (39th place), which was a huge improvement for both the boys from last year improving by more than 20 places.

In the 16s Tom Gordon who just started running a month ago showed his natural ability finishing in a solid 23rd place. This was a great result for Tom as he has had no previous race experience. Ben Fitton also made his debut for the first time at CIS, finishing in 39th place, which was a great result considering the fast field.

In the 17s Duncan Ballantine lived up to his vice captaincy of the cross-country team finishing the race in 43rd place whilst also being a great mentor to the entire Knox team on the day.

These are some amazing results and the boys should be incredibly proud of their results!

In the juniors, Knox had a very strong field of runners producing some incredible results. The afternoon began with the mighty Sean Williams finishing in 1st place in the 8-9 years boys improving by 7 places from last year! This was an exceptional result for Sean and his first ever win at CIS. Sean now qualifies for the NSW PSSA State Championships next month and we wish him the best of luck. Sean also led the 8/9 Years team to victory in the teams event along with Marcus Walsh (14th place), Tony Caspari (19th place) and Henry Anderson (84th place). Once again this was a fantastic result for the Knox Grammar Prep School and we as a school are really proud of them. 

In the 10 years Ryan Khattar ran in a quick field and gave the run everything he could to finish in a respectable 51st place.

In the 11’s, the Constable brothers continued their podium finish with the almighty young gun, Will Constable, finishing in 2nd place. This was another strong run by Will and we wish him the best of luck at the NSW PSSA State Cross-Country Championships next month. Not too far behind was Spencer Selikowitz finishing in a respectable 24th place.

To put the icing on the cake National Cross-Country champion Sam Rockliff had one of the best runs of the CIS meet, winning by almost 200m. Sam showed fantastic sportsmanship after the race waiting for his opponents to finish and shaking their hands. Sam has won this event every year in a row and has proved to be unstoppable and unbeatable. He will be a huge asset to the Knox Senior School when he joins us next year.

This is one of the best years Knox has ever had at CIS Cross-Country as a team and I would like to congratulate every single boy who competed on the day on their tremendous results!

James Constable, Sean Williams, William Constable and Sam Rockliff have been named for the NSW All-Schools Cross-country championships and the N.S.W PSSA Cross-country Championships.

Following the NSW CIS Cross-country Championships, the Knox Senior Cross-Country and KnoxFit teams combined powers and competed in the Trinity cross-country relays over the weekend. This was one of the biggest turnouts we have ever had for the Trinity relays with a record 12 teams competing on the day. It was great to see the boys enjoying this event and supporting one another and their teams. We had some great results with the Under 14s Years X31 Team finishing with a top 3 CAS place. The team consisted of Ewan Shingler, Angus Menzies, Mitchell Roberts and Nik Kaderavek. Our opens team, consisting of Duncan Ballantine, Ben Fitton, Andrew Crosling and Vaughn Wickenden, also had a strong run with a top 5 CAS finish. It was great to see so many teams involved and a big thank you to all the KnoxFit Boys who competed on the day.

Congratulations to all the boys who represented Knox at the CIS Cross-Country Championships and to all the Senior School students who competed in the Trinity Relays over the weekend. Thank you also to the staff that helped out at the Trinity Relays. This has so far been a great year with all the effort the boys and their parents have put in to training and competition and we will continue to grow as the year progresses.

A big thank-you to the Director of Track and Field, Mr Chris Pittman, for all his help getting everything ready for the two big events this week and to KnoxFit coaches, Tara Andriejunas (Head of KnoxFit) and Matthew Ross (Head Coach) for all their work with getting the KnoxFit boys prepared for the relays. A big thank you also to cross-country assistant coach, Ben Moss, for all his help with warming the boys up prior to their race. Thank you also to Dale Thompson and Richard Winstanley for all their assistance at the Trinity Relays. Finally a big thank-you to all the parents who drove their sons out to Ewan Park. Your support means the world.

Training update
During Knox fencing training on Saturday the prep boys were reminded of the three C's – “c “ ing, concentration and control. Boys from all groups were instructed in the finer points of sabre.  Sabre fencing has different rules and target areas and sabre hits could be scored using the tip, the front edge and the back edge of the weapon. 

They learnt to parry fifth position and to lunge and practise fine motor skills in using only the light touch of the fingers to score the hit. They then enjoyed some spirited sabre bouting against each other, practising their new parries and attacking movements.

Match report vs Waverley CAS Round 6
CAS round 6 was another record breaking round eclipsing the previous goals scored by banging in a massive 160 goals in 34 matches on the day keeping the scoreboard attendant busy! » Read More

The Opens had the mixed bag but having the better of the statistics by winning 4 drawing 1 and going down in two matches. The 1st XI had most of the possession and field position spending much of the game in the opposition half but could not convert any of the numerous chances they created, going down 2-0 with a penalty and a late goal to seal the result. The 2nd XI continued their winning ways with a 4-2 win keeping them in first place on the table. The 3rds also stretched the winning streak to 6 from 6 getting up 6-2 with a hat trick going to James Lawrence.

Year 10 had a tough day at the office going down 3-1 in the As but the boys were not outplayed and created many chances and if they can manage to increase the conversion rate they will make their way up the table. The 10Bs grafted out a 1-1 draw with a Chris Hogan goal and the 10Ds got up 3-1 in an entertaining end to end match, Leon Li grabbing a double for his efforts.

Year 9 had the first clean sweep against Waverley for the day winning 6 from 6 on offer. The 9As are having a great run being undefeated in six outings and will play in the Area Semifinal of the Bill Turner Cup on Tuesday at Curagul at 1.45pm. The 9Bs are also on top of the table with a 5-2 win after scores were locked at halftime at 2-2. Solid wins in the Ds and Es, 5-0 and 6-0 respectively, saw the clean sweep to Knox.

Year 8 won 5 from 6 encounters with Waverley, with the 8Bs recording the biggest win at 8-1, along with the 8Fs 6-0 win. The 8Cs came home with another victory 4-0 with Will Seitam scoring a hat trick. The 8Ds also racked up their third win on the trot 5-0 Thomas Raymond netting 3 goals. The 8Es are still on song with 4 wins in a row with a 5-2 score and Brendan Mar getting a double.

Year 7 were the second undefeated year group for the day scoring an unprecedented 73 goals in eight games and only conceding 2. Goals scorers were plentiful but notably a double from Massimo Forlico in the A’s 6-0 win along with Lucas van de Scheur’s 5 goals in the 7Bs 11-0 win. The 7Cs 10-0 win saw Clive Marolt score 3 goals, the 7Ds 9-0 win with Michael Newbrun scoring 3 goals, The 7Es 9-1 win saw Nimay Kallianpur get 4 goals, the 7Fs 8-1 win saw Maxwell Evans bag 3 goals, the 7Gs 10 win gave Boris Lee 4 goals and finally the mighty 7Hs, who are undefeated, notched up a 9-0 win, with Mitchell Volk scoring 5 goals, and Jackson Thurkettle getting 3 goals, rounding out the day.

In the final round of matches prior to the end of term Knox played Waverley. » Read More

The 1st XV endured a determined effort from the Waverley team to win 30 – 17. Knox is well placed on top of the competition with six wins from six games. The 2nd XV had a fine win in a very close match 16 – 13 while the 3rd XV lost narrowly 15 – 17. The 4th XV won 17 – 0 and the 5th XV were impressive defeating Waverley 80 – 0. 

A highlight of the morning was the 6th XV match where Knox took on St Joseph’s College 11. Several Knox players are playing their first season of rugby. The game was played in fine spirit with two teams simply playing rugby for the pure enjoyment, with a little competitiveness. Knox lost 10 – 17 in a reminder of some old fashion values of schoolboy rugby.

The 16A and 16B teams relished the opportunity to play on Knox 1. Both teams recorded wins 20 – 10 and 29 – 14. At Gillespie the 16E’s met a strong St Joseph’s College 16 G team losing 0 – 55. The 16D’s were sensational, playing with width and supporting the ball carrier to score some great tries in their 47 – 0 win. The 16C’s exhibited a very persistent approach and after being behind 3 tries to nil at halftime produced an excellent second half losing 12 – 26.

The 15A’s lost 5 – 37 while the 15B’s, 15C’s and 15D’s all won their respective matches against Waverley. The 15E’s played St Ignatius College G losing narrowly 19 – 21. The 14C and 14D teams lost their matches while the 14A’s and 14B’s both won hard fought matches at Queens Park. The U13’s produced a wonderful morning of rugby at Gillespie. The 13 E and 13F teams found the going tough against strong Waverley opposition but the A, B, C and D teams had good wins. Yet again the 13D’s displayed some fine attacking rugby and the 13A and 13B teams constructed some excellent tries.

Ben Higgins, MIC Knox Tennis

Saturday 13th June 2015 saw Knox take on Waverley in our last match for the term. » Read More

The 1st team played some very solid tennis with Cooper Cole returning from a shoulder injury. The boys improved in their doubles which has been the main focus across all teams at Knox for the last couple of weeks. The 1st team ended up winning 8-0. The 2nd team were very impressive in their doubles also, not dropping a single game in their doubles. The 2nd team only dropped 2 games the whole day which showed the strength in the Knox team. The 3rd team got the job done with a good performance from Chris Brereton to win both singles and doubles. The 3rd and 4th teams won 6-0. Teams 5th to 7th had a bye this week.

The Year 10 team played some solid tennis also away at Kingsford Courts. Well done to Joshua Hourmouzis on a good singles and doubles win and also to the A team on a good win. The B team did just as well to also win 6-0 with a good display of tennis by Lucas Yang. Team C and D played an internal competition at Morona Avenue.

Year 9 boys were too strong for their opponents with a very professional performance to get the job done by the A team. They won 6-0 only dropping 2 games as a team. The B team nearly did as well winning 6-0 and only dropped 3 games. The C team won 5-1 with a good performance from Harrison Binks and Nicholas Anderson who won both singles and doubles. The D team won 6-0 mainly by forfeit with most of Waverley D team not showing up. Teams E to H played in an internal FAST 4 TENNIS round robin at Regimental Park. The boys are showing greater consistency in their play which is creating longer rallies and better tennis.

The Year 8A and B teams were at Kingsford Courts. The A team won 5-1 with a great show of tennis by Henry Wines to win both singles and doubles. The B team won 6-0 only dropping 6 games as a team. Well done to Nathan Lui with good wins in both singles and doubles. The C and D teams played an internal competition at Morona Avenue. Teams E to G played in an internal FAST 4 TENNIS round robin at Regimental Park. The boys are showing greater understanding in their match play which is creating a more tactical match between the players.

The Year 7A and B teams won 6-0, with both teams showing unbelievable doubles play. They put all their practise of doubles tactics i.e. Australian, I formation and switching into great effect with the Waverley boys not knowing what hit them. That was some of the best display of doubles I have seen in a long time, especially remembering everything from training. The C and D team played an internal competition at the Prep Courts. Teams E to F played in an internal FAST 4 TENNIS round robin at Regimental Park. 

Overall it was a very successful weekend winning 100% of all matches played. The boys dropped only 2 sets out of 88 possible sets. 

I would like to take the time to thank all of the parents for their help and support with getting the boys to their matches and training on time through Term 2. I hope you all have a great break and are looking forward to more Tennis in Term 3.
