College Sports Captains Adi and Will Bring the Latest Sports Update

During our recent assembly, Sports Captains Adi and Will provided an update on some fantastic sports achievements within the College community:

It has been a big start to the year sporting-wise with many different carnivals and events!


ACC Basketball

ACC basketball was held on Friday, 1 March, with the College sending four teams. We had a very successful day, with our senior boys, senior girls, junior boys, and junior girls all winning on the day. All the teams have now made it into the final 16 of the ACC competition. During weeks 1-2 next term, Our Lady of Mercy College will host a school from Perth for each team to progress to the final 8.

The junior girls will host St Norberts. The junior boys will host Frederick Irwin and senior girls and boys will both play Seton College.


Swimming Carnival

The swimming carnival was held in Week 6 at the South West Sports Centre. Our Lady of Mercy College sent a 50-strong team, and we placed 3rd overall. We also won the lower school shield for best-performing school for Years 7-9.

We were also lucky enough to have some individual success with Kyle Jocson, Laurie Jocson and Jay Pfoffer winning champion boy and Annabelle Hanson, Matilda Crispin and Lachlan Stiffle coming runner-up champions for their age groups. Jay Pfoeffer also broke several records at the carnival, and our lower school boys' medley team also broke the record. Thanks to Mrs Gann and Mrs Saffy for leading our team, and well done to the whole team for their outstanding results. 


Kim Hughes Cricket

The cricket has now wrapped up for another year, with our First XI winning their first game in the competition. We are still a young team and have a very bright future. The team captain, Rowan Jamieson, was also selected for the ACC All-Stars team that played a game Friday against a School Sports WA team. The ACC team was victorious on the day, with Rowan contributing with the ball, ending the game on 1/26. A special thank you to Mr Mazza, who has guided the team over the past three years but will now hand the coaching reins over. Also, a thank you to Mr Jamieson, who has managed the team.



OLMC Athletics Carnival

As you are all aware, our athletics carnival is taking place next on Wednesday of Week 9 at the Bunbury Athletics track. A lot of pre-carnival events have been taking place, and one house in particular is already off to a great start. Remember to be checking your Direqt messages each morning for some important carnival information and a reminder SHOES are compulsory at the carnival. Due to OHS you will not be able to compete without shoes. 



Country Week

Teams will be finalised Wednesday afternoon, and on Thursday, Week 8, at lunch in the gym, all successful members will attend a Country Week meeting.
