Thankfully the sun came out and we had a wonderful day of sport last Saturday with the majority of teams playing Cranbrook School. I was fortunate to witness many great individual performances, but most importantly the “team” aspect of our program was on full show on Saturday. To see team mates lifting each other and encouraging one another in tough times is great to watch and is such an important part of why sport is so important here at Knox.

Knox has had a long association with Cranbrook School as a fellow member of the CAS and we are thankful to Cranbrook for giving our boys fixtures and some great memories last weekend.

Whilst our emphasis is developing the boys in their chosen sport, we should also recognise some outstanding results over the weekend. The Tennis in particular are now two weeks into their season and have not lost a single match. That is astonishing when you consider we have 32 Tennis teams competing each Saturday in the Senior School.

Week Ahead
This is a massive week for our Summer program as we prepare to host traditional local rivals, Barker College, in many sports. It will all start on Friday afternoon with Tennis playing at Knox from 5pm (1sts and 2nds) then all attention will be in The Great Hall as our Basketballers start from 6pm. This will be a big event for the school and I know the teams would love all the support they can get.

Team of the Week: U16 Baseball
Despite playing a much older and larger opposition, our junior baseball team put in a great performance showing tremendous grit and courage to compete right through until the final ball. The team is made up of Year 7, 8 and 9 boys and is playing in the Ryde Hawks Baseball League Under 16 Competition and has recorded some strong wins against older opposition in the past few weeks.

Aquatic Sports

Mr Nick Warby, Director of Aquatic Sports

Week 3 of Knox Sport provided a true taste of Summer as our students took to the beach, pool and sailing club over the weekend. The Knox Aquatic Sport Program is starting to take off with all of our team members working hard and achieving great results in a range of events over the weekend.

SAILING
With light winds and Scotland Island as the backdrop, the Knox Sailing Team took to Pittwater to practice their skills. Blue Squad practised their skills in several races as well as Capsize Training while the Black Squad were involved in a series of Team and Fleet Races that will mimic the Interschool Regatta Series and the NSW Team Racing Championships.

Tom Reid was recognised as skipper of the week by the coaches for taking the helm of the boat for the first time. Ed Watts and Henry Stoodley-Williamson also impressed the coaches and their team with their expert sailing knowledge that they passed onto others in the team.

WATER POLO
It was another great weekend filled with success for the Knox Water Polo with 6 wins out of 9 games across the Prep and Senior School. With a BYE for the Firsts, it provided the opportunity for the Seconds and Thirds to once again step up with both teams winning by a large margin.

The ‘game of the weekend’ was recognised as the 14A’s who played against Cranbrook 15A’s with a winning margin of 8 points.

Water Polo Results: 
1sts BYE 
2nds Vs Kings: WIN (9 - 2)
Nic DiJohn, Nic Desmet and Alex Heintze led the way with 2 goals each in a dominant display. Despite being 2-1 behind at quarter time the boys dug deep, and full press marking in defence made the difference. Jason Park had a solid game as goal keeper.

3rds Vs Kings: WIN (9 - 2)
3rd grade continued to play well as a team with 7 different goalscorers, but it was the experienced players rather than the newcomers who stood out. Ben Nyar and Adam Swiderski were standouts.

16A’s Vs Kings: WIN (6 - 3)
This game was tougher than expected and despite leading 6-1 at 3 quarter time, a 0-2 last quarter brought the score much closer than it should have been. Oli Utteridge and Douglass Harrison were strong amongst a good team performance.
 
16B’s Vs Kings: WIN (14 - 4)
Elliot Heys and James Wu led by example scoring 6 goals and 5 goals respectively in a dominant display.

15A’s Vs Kings: WIN (9 - 4). With a mixture of youth and experience, this team played some lovely waterpolo to easily defeat Kings. Harry Miller, Xander Mercer and Flynn Worner scored all 9 goals and continue to have people talking about the positive future of Knox Water polo.

14A’s Vs Cranbrook 15A’s: WIN (11 - 3)
Despite being only a practice game the boys were fired up to prove that age and size was no match for skill and enthusiasm. Jordan Menzies, Justin Lee  and Wyl Parker scored plenty of goals and the Banfield twins supported them brilliantly and often looked for cross passes when they could have easily scored themselves. A great team display and worthy of Team of the Week nomination.  

14B’s Vs  Sydney Boys High School: Loss (2 - 11)
Jack Harty played well and scored two goals in a tough game where the boys never gave up.

Prep Blue Vs The Scots College: Loss (8 - 1)
This game was a lot closer than the score suggested. Behind only 3-0 at half time fitness and swimming ability was the cause of a 1-5 second half. Jack Crews continues to impress in goals and Hendrix George never gave up trying.

Prep Black Vs The Scots College: Loss (8 - 2)
Angus Rowe displayed some outstanding saves in goals and combined with Dylan MacKenzie and Ned Ericsson to attack well, despite not being able to convert this attack into enough goals to win this game.  

SURF LIFE SAVING
With crystal-clear water, the Surf Lifesaving Team made the most of the stunning beach conditions at Whale Beach. The Year 8, 10 & 11 Patrol/Competition Group were put though their paces with several challenging fitness sets including a run-swim-run marathon. Year 8 Surf Lifesavers James Simmonds and Jake Buchanan were standouts in this. 

With three weeks until their assessment, the Bronze Medallion group covered a large amount of content including Spinal Carries, Rescues as well as Advanced Resuscitation with Defibrillators and Oxygen Equipment. The Surf Rescue Certificate candidates took to the water to hone in on their fitness and resuscitation in preparation for the assessment. 

SWIMMING
The Swim Team have continued to train hard throughout the week in the lead up to the Knox CAS Invitational Carnival to take place on Friday November 10, 2017. 

Knox Prep School and Wahroonga Prep School students have once again spent much of the week down at the Knox Aquatic Centre developing their Swimming and Water Safety skills in the lead up to summer. 

The newly re-vamped Knox & Wahroonga Prep Junior Races on Friday afternoon was a huge success with great races from Jason Buddee, Henry Pearce and Soloman and Samuel Tan. 

Our Head Swim Coach, Mr Steve Goodier spent last week in Adelaide for the Swimming Australian Short Course Championships. Knox Old Boys & members of the Knox Pymble Swim Club, Will Yang and Andrew Hemsworth swam at this event. Competing against Australian Olympians, including Kyle Chalmers both Will and Andrew swam in their first Open National Finals. Will swum in fourth place for the 50m Butterfly and 100m Backstroke while Andrew positioned himself in 6th place for the 50m Butterfly. 

DIVING
The Knox Dive Team had another great weekend of training with Michael Xenofontos, Oliver Ritchie, James Riordan and Bill Hirst practising their diving and gym skills off the 1m and 3m boards at Abbotsleigh Aquatic Centre. 

With a weekend encased by sunshine, salt and light winds several students took the opportunity to represent Knox and their various clubs in events spanning the entire weekend. Congratulations to the following students who performed admirably in other representative events: 

SURF LIFE SAVING - SUMMER OF SURF, ROUND 1: Knox’s up and coming star of the surf and sand, Dylan MacKenzie competed in the first round of the Junior Nutri-Grain Summer of Surf Iron Man Series representing Dee Why SLSC.



With the event described as a combining “the skills of an Olympic Swimmer with a world class track and field athlete”, Dylan cemented his talent winning a Bronze Medal in the Junior Beach Sprint at Queenscliff Beach. 

SWIMMING - NEPEAN OPEN WATER SWIM: Year 8 Swim Prodigy, Euan Liney competed in the Nepean Open Water Swim at Sydney International Regatta Centre over the weekend. Euan had a sensational swim, placing 2nd overall in the Open 5km event. 

SURFING - NEWPORT BOARD RIDERS COMPETITION: With his skills being noticed by Manly High Performance Surf Centre Coaches as part of the Knox Surf Team, Cooper Hennessy competed on Saturday in the Newport Board Riders Competition. Cooper placed 1st in his heat before placing 3rd in the Semi Finals and moving into the finals. 

SAILING - OPTIMIST ACT STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS: Ellis Merrett competed in the Opti State Championships held in Canberra over the weekend. Ellis had a great weekend with 21 knot winds on Sunday helping Ellis to place 21st out of a total of 47 boats.

Basketball

Ms Ellie Manou, Director of Basketball

The Opens backed up an impressive start to the CAS with a 7 win and 5 loss record. The 1sts did a fantastic job bouncing back from a tough loss last week to defeat Cranbrook, 88-63. Cranbrook started the game strongly but Knox were able to grind out the game and hit a double digit lead in the final quarter for their first win of the season. Campbell Green was a key presence for Knox and finished the game with 21 points and 14 rebounds. The 2nds had a slow start to their game but on the back of some superb shooting from Ryan Ng (20 point on 6/9 3 pointers) were able to defeat Cranbrook 59-53. The remainder of the games were competitive with the results as follows: 3rds (W- 37-35), 4ths (L- 37-38), 5ths (L – 23-39), 6ths (W – 41-19), 7ths (L – 26-40), 8ths (W- 25-24), 9ths (W – 29-25), 10ths (W- 26-17), 11ths (L – 23 -35) and 12ths (L – 11-29).

The 10’s age group finished the round with a 5 win and 3 loss record. Mackensie Balmer led the 10A’s to a gutsy victory 34-25. The B’s struggled with defensive containment and were defeated 20-31. The remainder of teams played great basketball finishing the round: 10C’s (W - 39-33), 10D’s (L - 22-25, 10E’s (W - 27-18), 10F’s (W – 64-13), 10G’s (W – 42-11) and 10H’s (L – 18-31). The 10I’s – L’s played Newington G’s-J’s and were defeated 28-30, 24-28, 21-29 respectively and the L’s won 17-14.

The 9’s year group had a fantastic round finishing undefeated 6-0. The 9A’s defeated Cranbrook 41-24 in a solid team display. The 9B’s were victorious (43-12) and played fantastic defence which led them to victory. The remainder of the CAS games were impressive with Knox winning 9C’s 38-15, 9D’s 48-10, 9E’s 64-13 and 9F’s 60-8. The 9G’s and H’s played a great internal game and our I’s-L’s played against Newington I’s-J’s with results as follows: 9I’s (W – 36-17), 9J’s (L – 16-27), 9K’s (L – 18-21) and 9L’s (W – 39-1).

The 8’s year group also had great round finishing with 5 wins and 1 loss. The 8A’s worked very hard at practice this week and this was reflective in their 52-37 victory. The 9B’s made some good defensive adjustments from last week but went down 23-25. The remainder of our teams played some awesome basketball defeating Cranbrook 8C’s 46-21, 8D’s 28-9, 8E’s 22-15 and 8F’s 58-6. Our 8G’s , 8H’s and 8I’s played against Newington F’s, G’s and H’s and won 36-7, 15-10 and 48-4 respectively. The remainder of the games were against Shore G’s, H’s, and I’s and the J’s won 18-9 and K’s lost 12-28 and L’s won 34-6.

Knox finished the CAS round with a 23 win, 9 loss record (72%). Congratulations to all boys who played on Saturday for their hard work and sportsmanship. Round 2 will be a local derby against rivals Barker with the Opens and 8’s at home and 10’s and 9’s away. The 2nds and 1sts games will be held on Friday night at 6pm and 7.15pm respectively. The first 200 Knox students to the game will receive a token for a free sausage sizzle. I am looking forward to seeing a strong crowd of black and blue supporting the 1sts and 2nds

Cricket

Mr Julien Manuel, Director of Cricket, Baseball and Tee-Ball

Despite the arrival of the now traditional “Friday morning rain”, we were able to complete a full round of Cricket versus Cranbrook. The boys enjoyed the fine weather and strong competition to continue Knox’s impressive start to the season.

Fencing

Mr Angelo Santangelo, Head Fencing Coach

Accurate pointwork is essential for scoring on- target hits. The boys practised keeping their movements neat and controlled in order to keep their blades and points in line. Wide movements can result in a lost opportunity or result in an off- target hit. Correct footwork can also assist including small well timed steps. The boys practised these skills in a number of bouts.

Golf

Mr David McGowan, MIC Golf

Knox vs Riverview
Result: Loss 3/1
The overall result simply didn’t reflect the quality of play on Saturday as Knox was pitted against some keen golfers from Riverview. Although our boys had to give a considerable number of shots to their opponents, they took on this challenge with enthusiasm and played very well. The matches could have gone either way for most boys throughout the day!



Will Ryan’s game improved significantly from last week and he remained “in-touch” for most of his round. He had a chance to square the match on the last hole, but finished 2 down on the last green against a strong Riverview opponent.

Nicholas Anderson also had a return to form and competed well against his opponent. Although his driving and approach shots showed significant improvement from last week, he was defeated 2/1 on the 17th. Well done Nick!

William Wells also had a solid round on the short layout at Strathfield Golf Club and was particularly impressive from the tee. He would always be challenged by the 12 shots he had to give away to his opponent though, and was defeated 2/1 on the 17th.

Calvin Su played some impressive golf throughout his match and easily defeated his opponent 8/7. His methodical approach to the game is inspiring and he took full advantage of his length and accuracy to stay on-top of his opponent.

Next Week’s Match is at Massey Park (Saturday 4 November). Please arrive at 11.30am for an early start..

Training will be at Avondale on Monday. Please bring a wedge or two.

KnoxFit
Week 3 was a tough week for all ‘KnoxFitters’ learning the somewhat awkward skill of front squatting with a barbell. Many rose to the occasion, embracing the difficulty of learning a new skill.

If the weeks’ work wasn’t taxing enough, Saturday sport brought some heavy farmers carries, testing the boys grip strength and endurance, on a 400m heavy kettle-bell carry.

Shout out this week go to Tim Barrie and Jackson Sault for their ongoing effort and enthusiasm towards the program.

Head Coach of KnoxFit, Harriet Roberts

Mountain Biking
Monday afternoon’s training session saw the junior boys participate in an exciting circuit at Terrey Hills BMX track. The course tested both the technical and the off-road mountain biking skills of our newer riders with plenty of jumps, berms, twists and turns.


Our first competition round (after last weekend was rained out) was hosted by Barker at Lidcombe Oval on Saturday.

Congratulations to the Years 7 and 8 boys who won the Junior division.

Head Coach of Mountain Biking, Cam Smee

Orienteering
Summer Series - Blue Gum, Chatswood
Knox Orienteering had a very special guest at the Blue Gum event last Wednesday, with Rev. Tim Robinson attending to give Orienteering a go. 



Two of our prep students were very lucky to have the support of Rev Tim as they completed the 45 minute points course (with only a couple of time penalties!) 

Summer Series - Pennant Hills Park
On Saturday morning, the course moved to Pennant Hills Park, with some steady improvements in all age groups. Congratulations to the following boys who topped their respective divisions:
Division 1 - Oliver Pitman (Year 12) in a time of 1:02:20
Division 2 - Alex Koch-Lowndes (Year 9) in a time of 44:40
Division 3 - Dominic Rodriguez Russell (Year 8) in a time of 1:14:06

Track & Field
The Knox Track and Field Team enjoyed favourable sprinting conditions at The Crest Sporting Complex in Bankstown for Round 3 of the Treloar Shield on Saturday.  

In hot conditions, Dan Mulcahy (Year 9) got the sprinters off to a cracking start with a great performance of 13.62 in the 100m. Then juniors, Will Tsui, Aidan Lau, Shayne Williams and Tom Plasto (all Year 7) followed suit with more sensational runs in the 100m. Both Lau and Tsui recorded personal bests in their events, but unfortunately would not officially count as the tail wind readings were too strong. Shayne Williams time of 13.86 was also another great performance in the conditions. 

One of the runs of the day was Tom Plasto in the 400m who ran very close to his personal best with a time of 62.81. This was only 0.51 off his best which shows he is in great shape for the NSW State Relay Championships next week at SOPAC. 

Head Coach of Track & Field, Nick Bromley

Triathlon
Congratulations to Mitch Westhuizen (Year 9) for taking out the Nepean Enticer triathlon event over the weekend. This was a fantastic result considering the event was open to all ages and included a number of 16-19 year olds hot on his heels.



Mitch set a cracking pace, with 3:03 for a 250 swim, 15:20 for a 10 cycle and 8:13 for a 2.5km run. All in all, a total time of 28:11!

Volleyball

Ms Alexandra Charles, Head Volleyball Coach

Another strong performance from the Knox 1sts sees them take their second win from as many games this seasons, 3-2 over Cranbrook. We took a quick 2-0 lead through some strong serving, control over the first touch and clinical attack. However, Cranbrook rallied well and just scraped through to take the next 2 sets. We returned to form just in the nick of time to snatch the 5th set and the game. All the boys performed well throughout the game, with special mention to Angus Lorimer for his serving performance and strong attack through the middle court.

Parking for Saturday sport at the Senior School

Due to construction of our exciting new Knox Performing Arts Centre/Junior Secondary Academy, we are no longer able to provide parking at Woodville Ave for families attending sports fixtures at the Senior School campus. Parking is available in the Borambil Street underground carpark for weekend sport. Where possible, we encourage boys and parents to use public transport for travel to and from the Senior School campus.
