Term one saw SSWA host 5 Secondary and 2 Primary Swimming Carnivals and the interschool Diving Competition in conjunction with
Diving WA. Champion School summer sports commenced and team officials were busy coordinating the selection and preparation of our
Triathlon, Pizzey Cup Tennis, Baseball, Softball and Water Polo teams. In term two the Champion School winter sport competitions will get
under way and more of our interstate teams will be preparing to travel. We are looking forward to hosting the National Water Polo
Championships this month from 20-25 May at HBF Stadium and are continuing preparation for hosting national Diving and Cricket 12s
championships later this year. Secondary Cross Country is fast approaching on 18 May and Over 3500 students are preparing for SHS
Country Week on the last week of Term 2. At the SSWA AGM in March we farewelled long time and hard working Life Members Alby Nuich
and Peter Della-Vedova from the Management Board, welcoming new members. In term one the SSWA Office farewelled a long serving
team member, Zoe Prue. She will be sorely missed at SSWA but we wish her all the best with the next step in her career.

                         The Secondary School Girls Softball Championship was held on the 4th April in beautiful, sunny weather. Teams
Final Standings:          from Darling Range Sports College, Leeming SHS, Southern River College and Duncraig SHS participated in a
                           round robin competition. After the initial round robin which saw Leeming cruise through the rounds undefeated
1st Southern River      they came up against a determined Darling Range. In a low-scoring battle Leeming SHS defeated Darling Range
2nd Leeming SHS            3-1. In the other Semi Final Southern River just defeated Duncraig 3-2 in a tight struggle. The Grand Final saw
                           Leeming up against Southern River College. After several innings being at 0-0 and time running out, Southern
3rd Darling Range        River managed to score a run from a walk and then a base hit. They held out to win the game 1-0. I would like to

                                        WA traveled to Maroochydore Qld, after a limited preparation impacted by un-seasonal
            CRICKET 15s                 weather, to compete in the Australian Championships. Although eager to put their best foot
                                        forward and demonstrate their skills the boys struggled in the first two games losing
                                        convincingly to NSW Green and SA in a much tighter contest.
Dates:               9-18 February 2018 The third game saw the boys further improve to complete a good victory over Tasmania.
                                        Another close game against NSW Magenta saw WA again play much better cricket but lose
Venue:               Brisbane, QLD      narrowly. A poor performance against Northern Territory resulted in a disappointing loss
Final Placing:       9th                before the boys played their best cricket of the championships to record a fantastic last ball
                                        victory over Qld in a thriller.
                                        All the players are to be congratulated on their efforts to improve significantly over the
                                        championships. Special congratulations to Medal winner Cooper Connolly due to his
                                        consistent efforts over the week and all Australian Keegan De Koker.

strong. WA were awarded the silver medal defeating Victoria, Queensland, South Australia,
Tasmania and ACT. A highlight for the week was Jerome Iaconi winning the Australian Singles
whilst Lexie Weir and Matthew DeGroot took out the Consolation Singles. WA was well                 Dates:             27 April – 6 May 2018

After a year off WA returned to the diamond with one of the youngest teams to travel in some                    Baseball
time. The players were competitive in most games and finished one run away from playing off in
the top pool. Running into the most dominant pitcher in the tournament during the finals day saw
us play off with the ACT which resulted in a 7 all tie.                                          Dates:          29 April – 5 May 2018
