Last weekend brought an end to the CAS Winter season with the majority of teams playing against traditional rivals, Waverley College. It was a real test of character with not all results going Knox’s way, but the School has every reason to feel very proud of the way all boys conducted themselves – particularly at Queens Park in quite a hostile environment and the season 'up for grabs'.

Our 1st XI and 1st XV have had sensational seasons and were both very unlucky not to win their respective Championships. Whilst they are disappointed at the moment, I know they will all have some great memories including playing in front of their school community on Knox 1 - a memory for life.

I want to particularly thank all of our coaches that have committed so much to all of our boys from the Preps right through to the Senior Open teams. It is a big effort from all coaches, particularly in the depths of winter but they never let us down and are an integral part of the Knox Sports Academy.

We now move straight into the Athletic season and the boys and coaches cannot wait. It is only a short five week season and EVERYONE is welcome, starting this Saturday at Homebush. A bus will be taking kids out and back if required and Mrs Liz Smith can help with any details you may need. Please encourage your son to get involved and take advantage of great coaches, meet a new group of friends, on a great running track and the chance to perhaps run under lights in front of 5,000 screaming spectators in September representing Knox.

Also at this time of the year, our boys start to prepare for the summer season. Training is reduced to Period 7 this week and trials will take place later in the term. Those who choose Track & Field will not be disadvantaged at all when trialling for Cricket, Basketball or Tennis. We have had a great response from all boys doing their sport nominations and our Directors can’t wait to get the season up and running. All boys are being given information this week relating to the sport they chose for summer.

Just a reminder to ensure you download the Skoolbag App and have alerts set for the particular sport your son chooses. We are currently placing more emphasis on the Skoolbag App as our preferred method of communicating to all through the summer. The Portal will still hold the basic information but it is the App that will advise of any cancellations or changes to regular schedules, venues, team lists etc.

I hope you have all enjoyed the winter season.

Team of the week
9Es Football won 10 games from 10, scored 93 goals for and 1 against, and broke a 13 year old record.

Aquatic Sports

Mr Nick Warby, Director of Aquatic Sports

The Knox pool has continued to be a hive of activity over winter with a wide range of students working on their goals throughout the colder weather.

Throughout winter, our school fitness swimmers have been regularly put through their paces by coaches Mark Morgan, Luke Arnanmart, Blake Heggie and Gemma Goldhagen. Many of these sessions have had a challenging focus, of which our team has risen to. Through regular commitment, each member has managed to dramatically increase their swim fitness.

Congratulations to Hamish Lapsley (Year 8) and Michael Li (Year 10) who received OKGA Awards recently for their commitment to the School Swimming Program throughout winter.

Over the coming weeks, our Senior Elite Squad will continue their training as they head towards the NSW Winter Short Course Championships held at SOPAC on the last weekend of August.

I would like to thank each of our swimmers (both competitive and fitness based) for their commitment to Swimming at Knox as well as for their dedication towards their own health and active lifestyle.

Fencing

Mr Angelo Santangelo, Head Fencing Coach

Knox hosted three teams from North Sydney Boys High School on Saturday 5 August as an opportunity to finish the winter season with competition Fencing. The Knox teams included students who were participating in their first team event. The format for the matches was the Italian Relay which is the same format as Olympics and World Championship, which is cumulative hits to 45. Each member of the team must score as many hits to in three minutes to get in front of the other team. This was very exciting for the boys as they had the privilege of using the electronic scoring devices to fence electronically.

Knox Team 1
Yr 8: Angus Dunk, Austin Swaffer; Yr 9: Jeffrey Chung (Captain of the team)
The team all Fencing electronically for the first time took some time to adapt to the environment but improved through the duration of the bouts.

Knox Team 2
Yr: 9 Ashton He, Oscar Loofs; Yr 10: Hamish Wyse (Captain)
The team with some prior experience to draw upon were able to take their team to victory and a lead for Team 3 to contest the final bouts.

Knox Team 3
Yr 11: Issac Gomez, Jackson Young and Zacary Loofs
Entering the final bouts and all fencing brilliantly the Knox team was leading 42-37. Unfortunately, they were not able to close it out going down 42-45, a disappointing result as the Knox boys fought as hard as they could it was a valiant effort, but an excellent learning opportunity.

The students in all three teams fenced really well learnt a lot from the experience with commendable sportsmanship.

Football

Mr Stephen Roche, Director of Football

Knox vs Waverley CAS Round 10
Season 2017 will go down in history as the most successful season across all grades for Knox. An amazing 23 CAS champions have been crowned, beating the previous record of 18 titles. A whopping 13 teams finished undefeated, blitzing last year’s record by eight. Tough decisions were forced onto the coaching staff to decide which team had earned themselves Knox Football Team of the Year, with the coveted title going to the 9E’s for winning 10 from 10 matches including 93 goals for and just one against. On behalf of all the coaching staff and everyone at Knox, we congratulate each and every player for a wonderful season and for doing us proud with your attitude and resilience.

The final fixture of the season offered the Knox 1st X1 the chance to take the title in a top of the table clash with Waverley. With Knox going into the fixture two points ahead of St Aloysius and Waverley, results elsewhere would only worry Waverley, a win the only result that mattered to Knox. In one of the most hotly contested matches of the season, Knox showed why they are considered the toughest opponents. The fixture quickly turned into a physical encounter, Waverley determined in their fight for top spot. The Knox boys gave their all, but on a day when the result could have gone either way, the game finished 1-0 in favour of Waverley. While it was a disappointing end to a great season for the team, Coach Kai Lammert says he is proud of his side, and happy with their improvement as the season progressed. Elsewhere, the 2nd X1 drew 1-1, while the 3rd’s won 1-0 through a classic performance from Angus Grant. The 4th’s Lennard Lai influential in their 2-1 win, while Alex Zatz starred for the 5th’s 5-3 win with a hat trick. Hayden Bartlett saved his best for last in the 6th’s 3-0 victory, likewise Hayden Nelson in the 7th’s 3-1 win.

Year 10 ended the season with positive results. The 10A’s finished with a 1-1 draw to end the season in 2nd place by an agonising one point. Will Schroder and Nick Boyd did all they could, unlucky not to get the win. Harvey Mackenzie finished with the form he’s shown all season, scoring a goal and leading the way in their 2-0 win to finish 1st on the table. The 10C’s 3-0 win saw Hugh Falconer-Flint feature heavily, while the 10D’s Michael Vinci instrumental in their 2-0 triumph. Daniel Se showed class and patience in the 10E’s 8-0 win.

The final report for the season sees us reviewing the Team of the Year, the 9E’s coached by Jason Falzon. Best performer of the year, Joshua Paine, scored a whopping 24 goals for the team while also playing up for the D’s. Special note goes to goalkeeper, Oliver Utteridge, for only conceding one goal all season, unfortunately in the final fixture of the year. Balance was the key to the team’s success this season, Adam Wu a rock in defence, Duncan Thomson & Mitchell Volk forces up front, scoring important goals. Daniel Plastourgos & Aiden Jacobson controlled out wide, feeding pinpoint crosses to the strikers. Rounding out the attacking third, Maxwell Gillman pivotal with his combinations and assists throughout the season. Overall an enjoyable season for the boys, playing a great style combined with great team work. Congratulations 9E’s. In other results for Year 9, the A’s won 2-0 to finish first, while the B’s finished undefeated with an 11-1 win. The C’s and F’s went down in their matches, while the D’s, E’s, and G’s all finished with wins.

The 8B’s played off for the title and finished triumphant with a 2-0 win, Ryan Cheung and Lachlan Hui saving their best for the playoff. The C’s Sydney Kensit scored in their 3-0 win, while Tim Allsop starred in the D’s 2-1 win. The A’s and the F’s were unfortunate in their losses, while the E’s Michael Xenofontos & Angus Fuller scored 3 apiece in a 7-1 victory. 

The 7B’s finished on a high with a 1-0 win, James Oliver the coach’s pick. The A’s drew 2-2, Jai Vardanega earning praise there. The C’s drew without scoring, Adam van Horen best on ground. The D’s and E’s scored 6-0 & 8-0 victories respectively, Hugo Boulden & Jed Walsh performing well, Ethan Ellis with a hat trick. The F’s, G’s, & H’s all finished the season victorious. From all of us here in the news room, it’s been a pleasure commenting on the performances this year, congratulations to everyone for an entertaining season!

The WoD for this week involved a novel challenge, known as the 'Deck of Cards Workout'.

Essentially, a deck of playing cards was utilised to determine each activity, with different cards equating to different movements and the number on the card dictated the number of reps. 
Clubs = Squats
Spades = Box/stair Jumps
Diamonds = Push-ups
Hearts = Situps
Joker = Lap of the oval with 10 of each exercise at each corner

All students enjoyed a different approach to a workout to finish off the winter season. Thanks to everyone for their involvement this season!

Rugby

Mr John Rownes, Rugby Coordinator

Last Saturday Knox took on Waverley in the final round of the CAS competition. The 1st XV clash had a massive bearing on the competition, for a Knox win would see them claim a share of the CAS Championship. Waverley have proved to be a very formidable team throughout the year and this was a major challenge for the Knox team. Waverley started well securing a good early lead but the Knox boys demonstrated their courage and determination to work their way back into the game to trail by 17 – 26. However, Waverley’s strong finish resulted in a 47 – 17 win and the CAS title.



The 16A and 15A teams have performed consistently throughout the CAS competition. The 16A’s produced an impressive final match defeating Waverley 47 – 0. Seven excellent tries were scored in a very skilful display of attacking rugby. The 16A’s ended the CAS season undefeated. The 15A’s have massively improved this year and produced a fine performance to win against Waverley and remain undefeated in the CAS competition.



All teams from the 13E to the 1st XV have represented the school well each week throughout the season and all players can feel proud of their achievements. The commitment and level of sportsmanship displayed is a credit to all players who wore the black and blue.

Year 12 Rugby Players and Year 12 Rugby Parents 2017

The Year 12 boys are commended for their contribution to the Knox rugby program throughout their time at the school. They have represented Knox and the sport of rugby with distinction.

In particular those parents who have devoted their time as members of the Black and Blue Supporters Group and to the many parents who have so kindly given of their time to assist with the barbecues each week.

Tennis

Mr Ben Higgins, Director of Racquet Sports

Saturday 5 August saw Knox play the last match of the Winter 2017 season. The Opens teams were away at Waverley with the 1st team who had already won the CAS title. The boys were keen to finish of the season strongly. The 1st team was without 2 of the normal 1st team players meaning boys moving up and ready for the challenge. The 1st won 6-2 overall with Thomas Burwood (Year 12) playing his last ever school match in the 1st team who won both singles and doubles. The 2nd team continued their unbelievable record winning 8-0 with the team make up of younger players who are looking to push through into the Open 1st/2nd teams. The 3rd and 4th teams both had very comfortable wins 6-0 overall. Teams 5th- 8th played an internal round robin match play at Morona Avenue.

Knox Tennis would like to thank the Year 12 boys for the service to the school, which a lot of have continued playing since the Prep School. We wish you the best of luck in your HSCs and future careers. Knox Tennis will miss you as you have been great role models for the Year Groups below.

The Year 9 teams unfortunately didn’t have a match this week due to Waverley not having enough numbers. Teams A-D played an internal round robin doubles event at the Senior School Courts. Teams E- I played an internal round robin also at Regimental Park. Well done to the Year 9 group who have been very committed to their sport throughout the season.

The Year 8A team were the only team to have a match on the weekend with the A team winning 4-2 even though being down a player due to illness, which was a great effort from our boys. Teams B- D played an internal match play competition at Turramurra Park, whilst teams E- G played an internal at Regimental Park.

The Year 7A and B teams were away at Kingsford Courts. The A team showed their improvement over the term to go from a loss last time we played Waverley earlier in the season to a win 5-1 overall. The Waverley coach and parents commented on how much our boys have improved over the Winter season. The B team continued their winning ways to win 6-0 overall. Teams C and D played an internal Davis Cup match play event, whilst teams E- H played an internal at Regimental Park.

Volleyball

Ms Alexandra Charles, Head Volleyball Coach

Our final round of the season was played against Sydney Grammar this weekend and all three teams showed the development in their skills as they challenged Grammar’s excellent teams.

Our 3rds put up an excellent fight, taking one set from the Grammar boys by scrambling to pick up seemingly lost balls and excellent aggression at the net from Roger Fu. Despite securing the second set, the 3rds could not close out the game and finished with a 2:1 loss to Grammar.
Results - Grammar defeat Knox 2:1 (25:20, 22:25, 25:4)

The 2nds also demonstrated excellent control with some beautiful passing and defensive work. Adam Barnes was once again outstanding at the net, while Euro Ruangvanish and Oscar Wu provided consistency in the back court. Unfortunately, the Grammar attack proved too much for the 3rds and they finished up the season with a 3:0 loss.
Results - Grammar defeat Knox 3:0 (25:13, 25:19, 25:15)

Finally, our 1sts finished off the day with a hard-fought game against a very strong rival. With a slightly depleted team, we had some trouble with serve receive. However, with excellent blocking from Angus Lorimer and some very smart play for Jason Choong, we finished the season with a strong third set.
Results - Grammar defeat Knox 3:0 (25:13, 25:10, 25:20)
