Golden Glove Softball

18 May 2018

On Tuesday, a team of 11 Glennie girls attended the annual McDonalds Harristown Golden Glove Softball Challenge at Kearneys Spring sporting complex.

Being reigning champions from 2017, the girls were feeling the pressure to win.

The girls played some amazing softball, winning all four of their pool games against Faith Lutheran, St Ursula’s, Harristown SHS and St Joseph’s College with ease. From there, they went straight into the grand final against last year’s grand finalists, Fairholme.

Played under lights at the end of the day, it was everything a final should be; close and down to the wire. There were multiple lead changes with Glennie going into their last batting dig three runs down. With some amazing hitting from the girls, we forged ahead and took the lead, giving us the win in the competition 15-14.

Thanks to our coaches Katie Byrne, Lisa Cooper and scorer Amy Markham

Bill Turner Cup Football

18 May 2018

The Glennie Bill Turner Cup Football team played in the Darling Downs Semi-Final against Harristown on Tuesday afternoon. Despite being daunted by a slick looking Harristown team, who arrived with the drive and determination to win, Glennie held their own, finishing the game at 0-0. The game was then sent into a penalty shoot-out, where our goalkeeper performed three fantastic saves, while our penalty shooters (pictured) Bella Mott, Layla Proctor, Chelsea McCarthy, Olivia Smith and Veronica Fischer scored three out of their five shots, beating Harristown by one penalty. This means that the team now advances to the Darling Downs Grand Final.

Emily awarded 2018 Rugby Australia School Referee Scholarship

4 May 2018

WIN News Toowoomba and 7 News Toowoomba visited Glennie on Wednesday to record Glennie student Emily Byrne (Year 12) and Toowoomba Grammar School student Tom Kelk receiving their official 2018 Rugby Australia School Referee jerseys from Rugby Australia’s Rohan Hoffman.

Emily and Tom are among only 27 school students awarded nationally and only eight in Queensland. Emily is also the only female student to be bestowed this honour in 2018.

The Rugby Australia School Student Scholarship was introduced to help raise the profile of refereeing at schools, and to provide encouragement for young referees to remain in refereeing when they leave school. The program has proved very successful with a significant number of young referees progressing through the scholarship program to referee at senior levels in their state and internationally.

Students selected for the program are involved in a range of activities designed to improve their knowledge of the game, enhance their performance as referees, and expose them to a higher standard of rugby.

Emily has been refereeing for four seasons.This season, she is debuting to referee Darling Downs Senior Men’s Rugby. She has refereed all teenage grades in Darling Downs and a range of representative school games.  During 2017 she refereed state teenage carnivals in Brisbane. She was Assistant Referee in the 2017 Toowoomba Grammar / Downlands 1st XV. Emily is an active Rugby sevens player for Glennie and USQ Ladies Sevens and she is a regional representative sevens player.

Down Rugby Referee President, Scott Lindblom said “Emily is a highly competent referee with years of maturity beyond her age. Each of the last four years she has been regularly coached and she continues to develop at an advanced pace. Emily has a passion for the game and being a representative player, she has a natural rapport with players.  She has been identified for fast tracking and this commenced more formally during 2017”.

Downs Rugby has 1150 junior players and 700 senior players. There are 500+ girls playing across the Darling Downs. The Risdon Cup is the largest geographically dispersed domestic competition globally.

Congratulations Emily and Tom!

Australian Age Nationals Swimming

The Glennie School swimmers, Yinte Eerkens, Caitlin Lipp and Abigail Schoorl had a fantastic week of racing in Sydney this week. Competing against swimmers from all over Australia, the girls each gave personal best performances with Abigail becoming Australia’s backstroke champion in her age group.

Yinte had a very strong swim in the 100m Breaststroke, placing 17th in a Personal Best time. Congratulations, Yinte on your performance!

Caitlin began her week with the 100m Freestyle, swimming slightly over her Personal Best and placing 44th, while in the 50m Freestyle she placed 68th. In the 200m Freestyle, Caitlin placed 65th. Great work, Caitlin!

Abby had an astounding week of racing, beginning her campaign with a Personal Best time in the 100m Freestyle where she placed 13th. Abby then swam in the 50m Freestyle, placing 11th, narrowly missing a spot in the final. In the 100m Butterfly, Abby was called up last minute to swim the final, where she came 8th. On the same night, she also swam the 200m Individual Medley, placing 10th. In her final event of the week, the 200m Backstroke, she placed 7th.

In Abby’s pet event, the 100m Backstroke, she swam a Personal Best time in the heat, qualifying fastest for the final. In a nail-biting finish to the final, Abby managed to touch first, becoming the 16 years 100m Backstroke national champion!

Congratulations to all three girls for swimming at such a high level of competition! It is very difficult to keep the nerves at bay at a carnival like this, so it is a huge achievement to swim so well!
