Student Achievements - Edition 13 - 2019

Congratulations to the following students on their achievements...

Zoe Smith (Year 11 Kelly) - The Marion Football Club would like to take the opportunity to recognise one of it’s youngest female players, Zoe Smith. In a new side and having only played eight games in the minor rounds, in her first season she has shown great skills and approach to the game well beyond her years. She is extremely humble and hard working and plays the game with great flair. Tuesday night she won the Amos & Clarke Medal for the Best Under 18 player in the Open Women’s competition. This award has been won in the past by Chloe Scheer - who now plays for the Crows. To go along with this, Zoe has also won the Division 5 Best & Fairest League Medal. A huge achievement for Zoe & the Marion Football Club! Congratulations Zoe!

Last Saturday at Sturt Sabres Senior Club basketball presentations, Lizzie Williamson (Year 12 Dunstan) won the Laura Summerton Perpetual Trophy. This is a “highest potential” award, presented to the best player under 21 years of age on the Open Women's Premier League team. The Sturt Sabres have had a very successful season this year, being runners up in premier league and winners in the reserves league – both of which Lizzie plays in.

Congratulations to Cooper Jones (Year 8 Kelly) and his Under 13 football team, Edwardstown, won their grand final over the weekend.

Jessica Hocking (Year 8 Carter) has some success in her Netball games over the weekend. As voted by the umpires, Jess was awarded Under 15s Best & Fairest for Ironbank Cherry Gardens Netball Club; and Under 15s Best & Fairest for the Hills District/Region Netball Association.
