Touch Football

Glennie's own Holly Willmington and School Vice Captain Zoe McLoughlin were selected to attend the Queensland Touch Football Junior Representative Camp on the Sunshine Coast over the first few days of the Easter holidays.  

These girls were chosen to play for Junior Titans teams following the Junior State Championships in Townsville in August last year.  This is a new concept aimed at widening the talent pool of junior touch football players in the state. This is the first step on the pathway to the elite level of the game and the ultimate goal of one day being part of the Elite 8 and Open State of Origin Touch Football.

Zoe will also play in the Queensland Touch Football Women's 20s Squad for the 2018 State of Origin Series. The Origin series will be played in Queensland in November. Congratulations Zoe!  What an inspiration and role model for our younger touch players like Holly.

Abby wins again

22 March 2018

With all the swimming Abigail Schoorl has been doing this year, it’s hardly a surprise that she broke a 20 year old record at the recent TSSS Swimming Carnival. The previous 100m Backstroke record was held by Kim Bugden, from Glennie, with a time of 1:08.12, set in 1998. Abby broke the record in a time of 1:07.91. Congratulations Abby on yet another fantastic swimming achievement!

On top of this, after winning four gold medals and a silver medal at the Queensland State Sprint Championships for swimming, Abby was awarded the Country Swimmer of the Meet.

To receive this award swimmers must be a member of a club that is not within the Brisbane, Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast regions. Abby’s performances over the weekend led to her receiving the highest total points out of all country swimmers.  Abby received her award at a competition on Sunday, where she qualified for another two national events.
