Another huge week of sport at Knox Grammar with the highlight being the great spirit and respect from all on Remembrance Day. All games and fixtures ceased play right on 11am for 1 minute – full credit to all players, staff and parents for their understanding of the occasion. It was another example of the role sport plays in our community.

This photo is of the Knox & St Aloysius’ 2nds teams and officials as they locked arms and shared a minute of silence.


Knox hosted St Aloysius’ in many sports last Saturday and it was a wonderful CAS fixture. Our Firsts Basketballers were up against the much fancied St Aloysius’ team and we were victorious in a game that went right to the wire. This Knox team have worked extremely hard under new coach Jacob Jackomas and they are really starting to play some exciting Basketball. Whilst I try not to get too caught up in Wins and Losses – our Year 9 Basketballers deserve a mention for winning all 12 games in their Year group on Saturday. That is an outstanding achievement against schools such as St Aloysius, Shore, Barker and Newington.

Our Tennis enjoyed a lot of success with a 100% record across all age groups on Saturday with our First team now back on top of the CAS competition ladder. The First team then travelled to Albury on Saturday afternoon to contest the National Schools competition this week and are doing very well up against the top 14 schools in Australia. Full report next week but I do know they are now down to the final 8 places. Great work boys.
Our Cricketers finally enjoyed some sun and had some good results. Our 1st XI made Barker work hard in a small run chase but overall Knox enjoyed a good majority of wins ( 10 /15 games ).

There were also good performances in the Baseball ( 2 wins from 2 games ) and Table Tennis ( v Scots ) whilst our unbeaten run in the Firsts Waterpolo came to an end against a strong Scots side.

Well done everyone. I hope you are enjoying your Summer sport experience.

Week Ahead
Our final week of Summer sport for Term 4 with the majority of teams playing Trinity Grammar. This is a great opportunity to put all the hard work at training and in the gym into one last big effort prior to the long Summer break.
Our Knox Fit students will enjoy a change up this week with a “games day” on Saturday at Mona Vale. Boys will be participating in Teams of 3 in three separate scored workouts

For the remainder of the term, boys will still be training during Period 7. It is important to check Skoolbag as to what teams will still be training each afternoon after Period 7.

Aquatic Sports

Mr Nick Warby, Director of Aquatic Sports

The previous weekend saw the true qualities of our Knox Sportsman shine within all Aquatic Sports. Despite several challenging times across all sports, our students stood up and displayed a true sense of determination and commitment to the school.

Swimming
The Knox Swim Team started the weekend by hosting Barker College and St Aloysius College at the Knox Invitational Swim Carnival. The team performed well with several areas for improvement identified by coaches that will be put into action over the coming months.

On Saturday, many Knox swimmers continued their weekend of racing at the Sydney Metro North East Swimming Championships, held at Homebush. This carnival saw many highlights and personal bests from our students including: 
Ethan Hansen who set three new SMNE Swimming Records; 
Jack Edie who raced next to Olympic Medallist James Magnussen in the 100m Freestyle; 
Jordan Menzies who shaved an incredible 31 seconds off his Personal Best Time in the 200m Butterfly event; 
Josh Riggien who continued his swimming streak with Personal Best Times in 100% of his races. 

Head Swim Coach, Mr Steven Goodier stated “this carnival saw some massive PB’s from many students. All the hard work that our swimmers have put in over the past few months is continuing to show.”

Water Polo
Knox Water Polo came up against a tough opponent in Scots College over the weekend. All Knox Junior Teams continued to display their talent and skill with big wins in the Prep Teams, 15A’s, 16B’s and 15A’s. 

The following highlights from our students were on display over the weekend: 
Dylan Cooke who was deadly in front of goals scoring 3 goals in the 16A’s while Oliver Utteridge was very solid in goals with 6 different goal scorers impressing in a great team performance.  
Tobey Rowe who led the goal scoring with 7 goals in 2 quarters while Kevin Park scored 4 to gain a win against Scots in the 16B’s. Knox’s player depth was a factor, with fitness and swimming speed a factor in this teams’ continued winning run. 
A fantastic performance by our very talented young U15 team provided a great display in a 12 goal whitewash of Scots including Alexander Mercer who drew praise from veteran referee John Cotterill for his strength, skill, vision and goal scoring ability.
The teamwork of the 14B’s who played in the most exciting game of the day with Matthew Brooke scoring 4 goals while the whole team stepped up in a very narrow loss to Scots.

Mikey Yoong (Year 9) in particular was spectacular on court finishing the game with 19 points (5/11 from the 3-point line).

Golf
Knox matched up against St Joseph’s on a sun soaked Saturday afternoon at North Ryde Golf Club. The students searching for their first win of the season and started the afternoon in strong contention. The pairing of Will Ryan and Will Wells lost a match and split a match, whilst Calvin Su won his match. The unfortunate injury to James Wang resulted in his match being forfeit just as he was finding his rhythm with his short game. We wish James a speedy recovery so he can return to the course soon. Knox will return next in search of their first win for the season.

Target Shooting
NSWRA Full Bore Open Price Meet, 4 and 5 November
John Hunter (Year 11) competed in his first Full Bore Open Price Meet over 4 and 5 November. A two-day shooting competition held by the North Shore District Rifle Association at Hornsby Shooting Complex.

In testing conditions across the weekend competitors were decked out in full wet weather attire John Hunter did extremely well, experiencing the extremely competitive environment. At this level John was competing against three seasoned members of the Combined GPS Shooting Team, along with experienced adults.

John’s score for the two days was 210, out of 250, an extremely good result for his first time shooting in an OPM against some of the world’s best.

He was supported by Angus Martine (OKG and from Target Shooting Captain) who is also a member of the Australian U25 team, that are the currently the world champions.

Cricket

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

For the first time in many weeks, the Knox Cricket community woke to clear blue skies and dry conditions on Saturday morning. Round 4 against St Aloysius and Trinity proved to be a successful one for the Knox with many teams recording strong performances. Henry Roberts (10B) lead his team to victory against a strong Trinity outfit. He was supported by Ethan Wood (44) and Ollie Harding 2 for 4 as the game went down to the wire. Charlie Hennessy also continue his good form in the middle in the 10C’s scoring valuable runs against Trinity.

The 8A’s continued their fine form to record another victory against St Aloysius. Captain Trystan Kennedy led the way from the front claiming a career best 8 for 13 from 5.5 overs.

In our 2 day fixtures against Barker, the recent tradition of close matches continued. The 1st XI fought hard as they almost pulled an unexpected win defending 115. The boys, lead by Nic Gallu and James Caprarelli bowled beautifully to make Barker boys earn every run before eventually passing the Knox total 7 down.   

The 2nd XI match was played in great spirits as usual and the highly anticipated local derby came down to the wire. Set 87 for victory, our boys fought hard but fell 6 runs short against a strong Barker attack. Sam Druce bowled a incredible spell of fast bowling to claim 3 wickets and was well supported by Will Seitam. 

This week will see the final round of Term 4 fixtures against Trinity for our junior teams. I would like to wish every boy a successful weekend and hope they enjoy the last game before the Christmas break. Our 2 Day teams  will be involved in the final two round of the CAS competition over the next couple of weeks and we wish them every success as look to finish 2017 on a high.

Fencing

Mr Angelo Santangelo, Head Fencing Coach

Learning the finer points of sabre fencing is challenging but fun. The boys were taken through the parries and techniques and learned to quicken their footwork as sabre requires a lot of speed and accuracy. The differing target areas and use of the edge as well as the tip of the sabre make for exciting bouts. The boys fenced some quick bouts against a number of opponents to get experience in different styles and strategies.

Pedro Papangelis had a tough singles match losing in a close tie break, whilst Jason Xu played some outstanding tennis in both singles and doubles. The 1st team won 6-2 overall. The 2nd team played some very solid tennis in both singles and doubles against strong doubles teams. The team won 7-1 whilst the 3rd team won with ease 6-0. The 4th team had a close match winning 4-2 overall. Teams 5th- 8ths all played internal matches with the boys all having fun in their competitive matches against their friends.

The 10A team won 6-0 at Tennis Cove courts with a very solid team display of tennis. The B team won fairly comfortably too with a 5-1 win. The C team continued to work hard and won 4-2 with special mention to Lucas Evans who played very well in both singles and doubles. The D team won well to get the clean sweep in the year 10 age group and won 6-0 overall. The rest of the year 10 boys played in their internal tennis and have continued to improve tactically every week.

The Year 9 A-D teams were just too good for their opponents winning 6-0 in all, showing the strength and depth we have in this year group. Well done to all of the teams for such a convincing win. Teams E-G continued their internal competition at Regimental Park with the boys showcasing some brilliant tennis.

The Year 8 A-D teams also outplayed their opponents to win 6-0 in all teams. Another good performance from our younger age groups who have matured on the court very well.

Overall it was another successful weekend winning 100% of matches played. Well done to the boys on a professional performance.

Water Polo

Mr Nick Warby, Director of Aquatic Sports

Knox juniors dominated the pool in encounter with Scots at Knox Aquatic Centre on Saturday.

Overall, Knox won 3 of their 8 games but only lost 2 games by a goal. Importantly Knox displayed their superiority in the important youth team games with huge wins in the 16 A and B and the 15A’s.

1st Grade lost 3-16
Illness struck the team prior to the start of this match and our boys were no match for the experienced Scots team. Austin Wagner made many fine saves and Nic Trobec scored two late goals to add to Ted Harrison’s one.

2nd Grade lost 6-7
After leading by two goals in the first half, a 1-4 third quarter cost Knox the chance of winning this game. Aiden Robertson scored 4 goals but missed his scoring partner Alex Heintze today. An exciting game kept the crowd on the edge of their seats throughout.

3rd grade lost 3-9
Despite having plenty of opportunities, 3rd grade were not able to extend their winning run.” The game was very winnable but we could not beat the Knox keeper” the coach was heard to comment. Sean Kennedy, Nic Van Veen and Kit Murphy gave 100%.

16A Won 10-4
Scots are normally dominant in the 16’s age group, but the young Knox team gave them a lesson in full press defence, accurate shooting and counter attack to win easily. Dylan Cooke was deadly in front of goals scoring 3 goals. Leading 7-1 at ¾ time, the team took their foot off the pedal and actually lost the last quarter 3-4. Oli Utteridge was very solid in goals with 6 different goal scorers impressing in a great team performance.  

16B Won 15-1
Tobey Rowe led the goal scoring with 7 goals in 2 qtrs and Kevin Park scored 4 to demolish Scots. Knox’s player depth was a factor, with fitness and swimming speed a factor in this teams’ continued winning run. Paul Lee and James Sung also impressed with James Wu continuing to improve each week.

15A Won 15-3
A fantastic performance by our very talented young u15 team provided a team of the week display in a 12 goal whitewash of Scots. The majority of this team are very committed to their water polo and I would not be surprised to see great things from these players. Xander Mercer was fantastic today drawing praise from veteran referee John Cotterill for his strength, skill, vision and goal scoring ability. Xander finished the game with 4 goals and plenty of assists, despite missing a penalty. Harrison Miller had an off shooting day today but still managed to finish with 4 goals in his usual dominating fashion.  Ryan Johnson was the Head Coach’s selection of Man of the Match today with a fantastic display as goalkeeper.  Newington must be worried as our next opponents.

14A lost 3-13
The 14A’s were depleted due to swimming commitments  of three players and the unavailability of the impressive Banfield twins today. The boys tried hard and earned 5 kick outs to nil, but a lack of overall fitness was a telling factor in the inability to play a full press game for the entire match, resulting in a disappointing score line. Scots counter attacked well, but a rematch with our full team would provide a much closer score if not a different winner. It was the swimming fitness of our boys Jacques Horbach, Sayan Bahl and Declan Farris that assisted to provide our only goal scorers.

14B lost 9-8
In the most exciting game of the day, the Knox boys were in it right until the end with a 2-1 lead at quarter time and scores locked at 5 all at half time.  No goals in the third period for either team set up a dramatic last quarter, where Scots skipped away to a 2 goal lead. Knox replied with a late goal but ran out of time to over run their opponents. Matthew Brooke was great with four goals.

Team of the Week: u15A
Player of the Round: Tobey Rowe 16B

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.
