Games Afternoon and Team Dinner

21 September 2018

Final preparations for the Qld All Schools Touch Football tournament were undertaken on Tuesday with a games afternoon, followed by a full group Dinner.  

Each team comes together to not only play against each other (which has traditionally seen the 13 Years prove to be a small, but ferocious force to deal with), but also to unite each team through a clothing and war-cry competition.  The girls this year were given a “Locks & Sock” team challenge and were awarded bonus points for bribing their coach to be involved.

While the 18’s team proved too strong on the field and were announced the afternoon’s winners, the 13’s were certainly the most colourful and creative in their socks and locks choices. The 18’s did not dominate any team, which suggests our 13’s and 15’s are very strong and competitive, and it will be great to see them play against teams of their own age at the All Schools event in Brisbane.

A very big thank you to the wonderful coaching staff who contributed to the afternoon, wearing tutus and putting their hair into tiny buns, and to our wonderful referees, Blaze & Riley Prendergast.  The afternoon was certainly a success thanks to each of you.

A full squad dinner was held at Burger Urge. We are very grateful to the Glennie Sports Supporters who generously donated some funds to the dinner.  Thank you for acknowledging the tremendous effort and time each player and coach give to this Touch Football campaign through this donation; it is appreciated.

We know the players are looking forward to a restful holiday.

Coaching course delivers skills

21 September 2018

On Tuesday afternoon, 10 Glennie girls participated in the Aldi Miniroos Football Coaching Course at Glennie. The two hour introduction to coaching session was delivered by David Nugent who is the SWQ Regional Development Officer for Football.

It was fantastic to see the girls getting involved and embracing the opportunity to upskill themselves not only as players but as coaches as well.

Here are quotes from some of the girls

"We learnt more than we thought we would" - Linda Mai

"It helped me to improve my skills" - Bethany Crowe

It showed me how to train in the off season" - Sarah Park

The girls all agreed that they learnt why they train the way they do, as a result of this course.

Thanks to David for an engaging afternoon of football!

What's on in Sport?

14 September 2018

This Saturday will see Glennie compete in three tournaments, representing three different sports. Two teams will travel to Brisbane to compete in the Nitro Athletics Challenge. This competition was previously known as the Knockout Challenge, however, under the new branding, there will be new events, with different distances. One team will be competing in the Intermediate Division, while the other will compete in the Senior Division. It is bound to be an exciting day held at QE2 Stadium in Brisbane.

On the same day, three Rugby 7’s Teams will be travelling to Warwick to compete in the Scots PGC Rugby 7’s Tournament. Games commence at 8:20am and will finish by 3:30pm. All fields will be within walking distance of each other and close to Scots PGC.

The final event on Saturday is the Darling Downs Intermediate Schools Volleyball Cup, being held at Harristown State High School.  Games will commence at 9:00am and will conclude by 4:30pm.

On Sunday, 16 September, the Senior Vicki Wilson Team will be competing in the Regional Final of the Vicki Wilson Competition and the Junior Vicki Wilson Team will be competing in the Grand Final. We wish both teams success, with the Senior Team playing throughout the morning, and the Junior Team competing all day.

Fillies finish the season strong

14 September 2018

The Glennie Fillies played their final game of the year on Friday night. The Grand Final of the Under 18’s was full of much excitement, with the girls playing in wet conditions and many Glennie supporters cheering from the stands. In a game where Highfields brought massive kicks, intensity and new marking techniques, Glennie fought hard to keep the score at 2-0 at full-time. Our defensive line of Caitlin McCarthy, Georgia Barnes, Kirralee Bronkhurst and Shelby Dann fought with all their might against the speedy Highfields girls, while our Shona ‘Bolt’ Davidson was marked out of the game with Highfields having realised her lightning-fast pace. While it was disappointing to lose the Grand Final, the girls played one of the best games of their season.

A massive thank you to all the parents, students and teachers who came out in support of the Fillies at their final game. Without their support, the game would not have been as exciting. A massive thank you also to the five Glennie students who volunteered their time as ball girls during the game. Bethany Crowe, Matylda Agius, Rebecca Lamb, Olivia Smith and Jess Barnes helped the game run smoothly by quickly retrieving balls that had gone out of play. Another massive thank you to Bennie the Bee (Kari Donaldson), for supporting Glennie from the sidelines.

The final thank you must go to Mrs Watts, who worked tirelessly with the team all season to improve their touch, skills, strategies and overall desire to win. Without Mrs Watts’ contribution, the Fillies team would not have been playing, yet alone making their way to the Grand Final.

Junior Football Success

14 September 2018

On Wednesday, the Junior Football Team played their last game of the season against Christian Outreach College (COC). This game was to determine who would place third overall in the competition. For Glennie, this was a test to see just how much they had improved. At the beginning of the competition, in Week 2 of Term 3, this very same team were defeated by COC 5-1. Glennie was dominant with the ball throughout the game, scoring four goals (Bethany Crowe, Kari Donaldson, Olivia Smith and Rebecca Lamb) to COC’s two. It was thanks to Glennie’s defensive line and star goalkeeper (Matylda Agius), that so few goals were scored by COC. As you can imagine, the girls are ecstatic with their improvement over the season and are looking forward to continuing to build their skills, ready for next year's competition.

Thank you to Jordan Moy for his constant dedication to coaching the team, to Stacie Broom for coming out and supporting despite her injury, and to Mrs Watts, for organising the tournament between Glennie, Downlands, COC and St. Ursula’s.

Club G Netball

7 September 2018

Club G Netball finished the season on a high on Saturday, with one of the five finalist teams coming away with top honours. The Cadets D Red Team fought a difficult first quarter, to come back strong in the second quarter, and extend their lead, holding on throughout the third quarter. The final quarter saw the Dominoes team take the court with a new found desire, however, it was too little too late, as Gracie O’Shea and Lily Rowe continued to shoot on target. Congratulations to the team of Sophie Daniells, Sophie Smith, Emily Eather, Charlotte Hall, Lucy Packer, Gracie O’Shea, Lily Rowe and Tiggy Ladner on their win.

Congratulations also to 11A Purple, 12C Red, 13A Purple and Cadets F Silver on their successful season, finishing second in their divisions. The gusty conditions of Saturday made the games more difficult than usual, however, all teams showed fantastic resilience and sportsmanship.

A massive thank you to all the girls who played in Club G Netball this season, and to all the coaches, volunteers and parents for their hours of dedication to Saturday netball. Without your help, Glennie netball would not be possible.

Photo: Proud mum Mrs Cronje send a few photos of the 11A Netball girls who were runners-up in their division. She wanted to say a big thank you to Mr Warren, Miss Bullock, Mrs Kelly, Mrs Varley and some of the U10 girls for cheering the teams on.

Thank You, Draheimie!

7 September 2018

Saturday netball marked the end of an era for Netball Co-ordinator, Tanya Draheim. After ten years of Saturdays spent at Nell E Robinson Park supporting Glennie netball teams, Tanya has decided to take a step back and pass the reins to someone else.

Tanya has played an extremely influential role in netball at Glennie. Her first team of Glennie students in 2008 was one of only four teams competing. Now, Tanya’s legacy sees 17 teams playing in the Saturday competition, as well as nine teams in the Wednesday night social competition.

Clearly, Tanya has been working tirelessly to build the Club G Netball program. Her time, effort and total dedication to the sport of netball has seen many relationships built. To say thank you to Tanya for her work, past and present Glennie netball players surprised her on Saturday night to say thank you. Some of these past netball players travelled from Melbourne just to say goodbye!

While Tanya will still be a regular at Saturday netball, she will now have the opportunity to support her children in their sporting endeavours, and to be present for all of Madi’s Year 12 Functions. Tanya will now be working full-time in the Sports Office as a Sports Administrator.

From everyone at Glennie, thank you, Draheimie for everything you have done in the sport of Netball.
