Sports on the Green 2017

Posted By Sports Development Officer on 20/03/2017

Sports on the Green was held again in 2017, and we couldn't have asked for better weather or a better bunch of student. With the best turn out yet, close to 100 participants, the standard was as good as the attitudes of all involved.

With ten teams entered in the soccer tournament, it was hard to focus on just one game. The standard was set early by the Falcons as well as the 8 man strong Village line up. The Fill In's, who were a mix of guys and girls, did not take a back step and were one of the most physical out. When all was said and done in the minor round, The Falcons and The Village were the two last standing teams. The Falcons who were undefeated going in did not disappoint in a tight contest, coming out on top 2-1.

In the Volleyball, another packed field formed. A five strong field competed hard from the outset. The thing that stood out most was the friendly nature of the contest. Even though teams were there to win, the banter and sportsmanship was at a premium. Come the final, the two best teams stood out. T2 v The Individuals were the two and the final did not disappoint with the game going all the way to the 3rd set! T2 with it's fantastic teamwork, saw the Individuals off in the highly competitive affair.
