ISD Touch Football

28 February 2024

Glenaeon touch football teams proved themselves to be fit, committed and skilful at this week’s ISD Touch Football Championships at Peakhurst. With over 40 students making up four teams and as the only school to have teams representing in all divisions, our touch footballers did themselves proud with strong performances on the field and a wonderful display of school pride and spirit off the field. Whilst all of our teams found themselves in the win column throughout the day, the real highlight was the improvement of our teams and teamwork throughout the day. In our Junior teams, players developing from nervous first timers to strong team players and confident ball runners.

Undoubtedly our Senior teams provided the big moments for the day. Led by our Sports captains our Senior Boys team battled gallantly to make the semi finals after dropping an early pool game and needing to win all their remaining pool games. They won through in heartstopping fashion with a last second intercept try by Rohan B to seal their finals berth. The boys dominated their semi final to win through to the Grand Final where they battled the fatigue of their sixth game in a day and third game in an hour! In a tightly fought contest they went down 2-0, but not before exhausting every option to get themselves over the line.

Our Year 12 students were incredibly committed to this carnival and set a standard for Glenaeon sports carnival teams moving forward, their effort, energy and sportsmanship were outstanding. Glenaeon school pride and spirit was on show!
Six Glenaeon students were selected to represent ISD at the upcoming AICES Touch Football Carnival. Rohan B, Morgan R, Jayden S, Ciara H, Emily M and Matthia M will all compete at the next level next month.
