On Wednesday, 3 May, two junior teams went down to Byron Bay to compete against other schools in the AFL QLD cup.  It was a lovely warm day and the students were excited for the day.  The under 15 girls had four games, one more than any other team, and came away with a win against Xavier in their first game.  After the round results they were fortunate to tie 1st, 2nd on countback, and move into the finals to be played against Lindisfarne.  Despite a valiant effort and some injuries, the girls were beaten.

The boys lost the first game of the day in a close battle with Lindisfarne, after a slow start they were unable to make up the difference.  Game 2 and 3 saw improved performances and better team work which resulted in victories against Kingscliff and Xavier.  The 2-1 win loss was not enough to get the boys into the final, missing out only by for-against percentage.  The MVP for the boys (as voted by them) was Darcy Brotherton, with strong performances from Sebastian Trimboli, Tom and Ben Vaughan and Jarrah Star-Webb.

Overall, it was a great day with students representing the school proudly.
