With one round to play until the winter break two All Saints’ teams are in first place and another four are inside the top four of their respective divisions in the Bathurst Netball Association Competition.

The Under 14 Whites continued their unbeaten run in the 14B competition with a 29-11 win over Scots Black while the Firsts won on forfeit from LJ Hooker Hurricanes to solidify their position at the top of the A Reserve 1 table.

14 White have built their success around rock solid defence (equal best in their division) while the Firsts are number one in both stats despite having not played two matches due to forfeits.

The Colts are ASC’s next highest ranked team, cementing second place with a crushing 42-13 win over Eglinton All-Stars Scorchers.

However they have their work cut out for them to catch the undefeated Panthers Renshaws who are five points clear at the top of the table.

The Seconds have actually won two more games than the Colts but they are still in third place in B grade, one point adrift of Scots Firsts and Eglinton All-Stars Storm.

The other ASC teams holding down top four spots are the Thirds (3rd in C Res 1) and the Under 14 Reds who are doing a great job playing in the strong 16A competition.

The 14 Reds are hanging on to third on percentages from Scots Celtics and Panthers Bathurst Motors.

With first placed Sportsco Spirit undefeated and Collegians Little GG’s only one loss down it appears that these three teams will battle it out for the final two top four spots.

ASC took back first place in the Bathurst Netball Association A Reserve 1 competition on Saturday with an emphatic 53-20 victory over City Colts Volts.

All Saints’ went into the match down three players but you’d never have known it with Ruby Woodlock and Heidi Stokes stepping up to fill the void brilliantly.

The Firsts made a flying start in a sometimes heated and physical match and established a big lead by the end of the first quarter.

City Colts Volts have one of the best attacking records in the competition but their plays were foiled time and time again by incredible intercepts by Ella Lewis, Georgia Poole, Isabella Siegert and Heidi Stokes.

The fitness of the ASC side showed as they continued to step up the pace throughout the match and Sarah Reynolds, Zoe Lewis and Ruby Woodlock continued to score goal after goal.

The Firsts weren’t the only big winners on the day with the Seconds crushing Onyx 54-27.

The team attributes their continued success to the fantastic teamwork and positive comradery between the girls both on and off the court.

Shooters Ruby Woodlock, Daisy Hoskins, Charlotte Hunt and Elysia Chua have enjoyed high percentages each week while the hard-working centre court players, Beattie Humphries, Abbey Miller, Amber Stockman and Olivia Dunn have all applied their training to the court with great success.

The dynamic defensive combination of Heidi Stokes and Sarah Driver continue to impress with their ability to rattle their opponents in a tough but still professional and sportsmanlike fashion.

The Seconds have also been missing a regular from their ranks with Kate McEwen sidelined by injury but despite this she has been at the court every week to cheer the team on.

Overall it was a good day at the courts for ASC with the Colts defeating Superstars Samurai 34-20, ASC 16 Red defeating Bathurst 12 Dev 34-16 and the mighty 14 Whites continuing their unbeaten run with a powerful 34-10 win over Collegians Strikers.

The Thirds fought hard against Scots but were outlasted 35-27 by their arch rivals.

Aisling and Tasha are to be congratulated for their work in the defensive circle in this game.
14 Blue also lost a close one to Bulldogs Pearls going down 18-12 while 14 Red were very competitive in their 31-20 loss to ladder leaders Sportsco Spirit.

14 White remained the only unbeaten ASC team in the Bathurst Netball Association after Round Five on Saturday 27 May.

However, the Firsts and Seconds weren’t taken down by an opponent but an event after both had their ranks decimated by the annual ASC Presentation Ball.

Both were forced to forfeit their games to opposition they would likely have been favoured to beat.

The forfeit dropped the Firsts to third on the table with City Colts Volts and CSU Golden Oak in equal first.

This sets up a mouth-watering clash this weekend as the Firsts play City Colts Volts in a match that, depending on CSU’s result, could see the winner take sole possession of first place on the ladder.

The Seconds, also in third place in B Grade, will take on Onyx who are nipping at their heels in fourth position.

But while the First and Seconds were getting ready for the ball, 14 White had business to attend to on the court.

The youngsters delivered a strong effort to consolidate their position atop the 14B table with a convincing 33-14 win over OOT Toucans.

Phoebe Moller, Amabella Harvey and Eliza Weldon were able to spoil the opposition’s attack and retrieve a significant number of rebounds. 

Ginger Ryan, Breahna Burgess, Rhiannon Jarrett and Caitlin Morris showed great finesse and skill to move the ball through centre court.

Bridgette McFarlane, Poppy Hobson and Harriett Mitchell then finished the job in the shooting circle and their accuracy was amazing.

14 White will be looking to tighten their grip on top spot when they play the lowly placed Collegians Strikers on Saturday.

The girls delivered the only bright spot on an otherwise tough day at the courts for ASC with 14 Blue well beaten by Scots Blue in 14A grade, 14 Red losing a close tussle with Collegians Little GGs in 16A grade, 16 Red losing a similarly close encounter with Oberon Tigers and Collegians Black Thunder too good for the Thirds in C Reserve I Grade.

The Colts were also forced to forfeit a very winnable game and dropped to fourth on the table with 2 wins from 5 games.

In representative news, Ella Lewis, Ruby Woodlock, Georgia Poole, Elizabeth Crampton and Sophie Cant represented the WAS team the AICES netball trials.

WAS had a very successful day coming equal third in the competition.

Well done to all the girls for representing the school with distinction and particular congratulations to Elizabeth who was selected in the AICES team.

ASC took sole possession of top spot on the Bathurst Netball Association A Reserve 1 Grade table with a thumping win over Bathurst 15 Reps on Saturday 20 May.

The Firsts handed the 15 reps their heaviest defeat of the season with an emphatic 77-27 victory.

The win would have been enough to see them take top spot on for and against alone but they went clear when City Colts Volts suffered a narrow 44-37 loss to Bulldogs Bombshells.

A real feature of the match was the massive ASC support on the sidelines which no doubt inspired the girls to be at their best.

The Seconds also continued their unbeaten start in B grade with a 44-31 win over Collegians Magic keeping them at the top of the table.

It was the same story in the Under 14 B competition where Saints 14 White scored a 30 to 7 win over arch rivals Scots.

They also sit atop the table and boast the best defensive stats in the grade.      

Another impressive winner on the day was the Under 14 Reds, who improved to 3 and 1 in the 16A competition with a powerful 47-17 victory over Bathurst 12 Reps.

It was a much closer affair in C Grade but the ASC Thirds also managed to go 3 and 1 with a 30-28 win over LJ Hooker Hits 

Under 14 Blue and Under 16 Red both had close losses by 1 and six goals respectively while the Colts had the bye.

In rep news congratulations to Isabella Siegert who has been selected in the AICES Under 15 team to play at NSWCIS.

Isabella was one of four ASC players to trial at WAS with three of those making the possibles vs probables match.

Undefeated runs by the Under 14 Whites, 2nds and Firsts have highlighted a great start to the netball season for ASC.

Three rounds in and ASC lead the table in B Grade and are equal first in A Reserve 1 and 14B.

The Firsts could not have started more emphatically with a 50-25 win over Bulldogs Bombshells in round one, a 46-27 win over CSU Golden Oak in round two and a 57-26 win over LJ Hooker Hoopers last Saturday.

Equal first placed City Colts Volts have scored more goals but ASC have conceded far fewer giving them the best for and against differential in the grade.

It’s the same story in B Grade where the 2nds have taken all before them with a 59-8 win over LJ Hooker Heat Hellcats in round one, a 35-29 win over Eglinton All Stars Storm in round two and a 57-34 win over Bushrangers Gypsies last Saturday.

The 2nds have scored 21 more goals than their nearest opposition but only boast the third best defensive stats with Scots Firsts and Superstars Opals having conceded 10 and 27 fewer goals respectively.

ASC teams are also well ensconced in the top four in the 16A, Colts and C Reserve 1 competitions.

Playing in the 16A competition, the 14 Reds have won 2 of their first three games with their only defeat a narrow 29-25 loss in round two.

The Colts also lost their second match of the season but recorded strong victories in rounds one and three while the 3rds first defeat came last Saturday at the hands of the unbeaten Superstars Strikers.

All three teams lie in third place on their ladders.

As a club ASC have won an impressive 17 of their 24 matches so far this year, a strike rate of nearly 71 percent!

This success has also been reflected in representative honours with four ASC players and a shadow player selected for the WAS 15s and five for the WAS Open team.   


Reds Sixth in State!

Fresh from their grand final victory the mighty 14 Reds headed to Sydney on Monday 19th September to compete in the finals of the Netball NSW Schools Cup at Homebush.

After a team building dinner at Piccolo Roma with parents, grandparents & coaches, the girls had an early night in preparation for the big day ahead.

The spectacle began at 8:30 am with a march past by all teams on centre court with the All Saints’ girls really standing out in their smart uniforms.

Our first game against MacKillop College, Port Macquarie was a closely fought contest.

The girls worked hard to close the 13-6 half-time gap but we were unable to take out the match.

The girls played hard and moved the ball around the court to beat the strong defence and create some terrific passages of play for the spectators. 

The second game against Umina Sports High was just as tough with the Reds going down 19-11.

Sara & Zoe led from both ends of the court, encouraging the rest of the team throughout the match.

Holly & Sophie supported in the defence of the goal and Hilary shot steadily at her end of the court.

Natalie, Kate, Megan, Sharmeakah and Sophie had a tough time in centre court but contributed admirably.

The final pool game against Shoalhaven Anglican saw the team fired up and ready for a win.

It was close again but the girls put together their best game of the day and held the lead throughout for a thrilling 17-14 win.

The final game was the playoff for 5th and 6th positions against St John’s College Woodlawn.

Both teams clearly wanted to finish number five as reflected in the 9-9 half-time score.

The Reds gave it their all but went down 18-16 in a real nail-biter. 

Sarah, Zoe, Natalie, Kate, Megan, Holly, Hilary, Sophie & Sharmeakah should be very proud of their ranking of 6th in the state!

More than 900 teams started this tournament back in May so just making the state finals is a massive achievement.

The support of parents and grandparents was phenomenal and the experience was one we will all remember.

Congratulations girls!

You have done All Saints’ College and Bathurst proud.

Reds Take BNA Under 16B Title

Warriors in war paint ... the all -conquering ASC Under 14 Reds 

ASC Under 14s Reds emphasised their dominance of the Bathurst Netball Association 16 B competition with a resounding 54-14 win over Bulldogs Blaze in the grand final on Saturday.

Many expected a closer contest with the Blaze pushing a depleted ASC side in the major semi-final but it certainly didn’t eventuate with the Reds dominating from the opening hooter.

ASC outscored Bulldogs 8-1 in the first few minutes with Sophie Hillsdon continually outpacing the defence and feeding sharp shooters Sara Reynolds and Hilary O'Connor.

But it wasn’t only the offence firing with Holly Stokes and Megan Redpath intercepting pass after pass with their signature ‘Ninja’ moves and Zoe Lewis frustrating the Blaze with her energetic defence and turnovers.

Kate McEwen called on her experience to play with determination in the centre court while Natalie Mawhood was a steadying influence in defence.

Some halftime positional changes stepped things up even more with Sara moving to goal keeper, Zoe to goal attack and Hilary to goal shooter.

Coach Mrs Trudy O’Connor said the girls had been laser focused coming into the big game.

“The girls hit the court with one thing in mind and converted this thought into action with a superb demonstration of skill and talent,” she said.

“It was a brilliant performance from each and every player and this was the perfect culmination of a season of commitment, determination and the mindset to succeed.”

The Reds winning margin would have been by far the largest on the day were it not for the 71 goal beating handed to LJ Hooker Hits by Panthers GJ Gardners in the C Reserve I grand final.

They were one of only four teams to finish the season undefeated, racking up 447 goals in 12 matches for an average of just over 37 goals per game.

But their success wasn’t all down to their blistering attack with the team allowing only 141 goals in 12 games for an average of just under 12 per game.

The 14 Reds were one of two ASC teams contesting grand finals on Saturday with our Colts coming up against Triumph Storm.

This game was expected to be a thriller and it didn’t disappoint with the result in the balance right up until the last few minutes but unfortunately for ASC it was the Storm who came out on top 30-28, avenging their 31-25 loss to ASC in the major semi-final.

ASC spent the first three quarters pegging back an early five-goal lead gained by Triumph Storm in a blitzkrieg first few minutes.

The blue and reds still trailed by 4 at quarter time but had cut this two by halftime on the back of some defensive turnover work by Isabella Siegert, Georgia Poole and Heidi Stokes and some sharp shooting by Ruby Woodlock and Ella Lewis.

ASC fought back to level terms at the three-quarter break with Isabella Siegert making some stand out intercepts and Dominique Mitton and Abbey Miller providing great service to Daisy Hoskins and Ella Lewis.

All Saints’ hit the front by two early in the final period but every time it looked like they may get away the Storm came back and regained the lead.

Centre court girls Georgia Butt, Abbey Miller, and Bella Siegert fought against fatigue as well as the opposition but it wasn’t enough with the Storm finishing the better.

Undaunted by the loss, Coach Kay Nelson said she could not have been more pleased with her team.

“The effort the girls exhibited from start to finish was exceptional,” she said.

“The opposition were also a lovely group of girls who were equally as passionate about the great game of netball and consequently the game was played in great spirit.

“I was incredibly proud of each member of the team, and I can say they all gave it everything they had.

“They were very gracious in defeat as well and that says so much about them as individuals as well as terrific team players.”


ASC Netball Grand Finals

Going for a perfect record in the grand final ... the ASC Under 14 Reds  

The Under 14 Reds will be attempting to accomplish a rare feat when they contest the BNA Under 16B Netball Grand Final on Saturday - an undefeated season.

The Reds have been the benchmark team all year and will go into the decider against Bulldogs Blaze as deserved favourites.

Coach Mrs Trudy O’Connor said she couldn’t be prouder of the girls.

“The team has matured from a good team at the beginning of the season to a great team in time for this weekend’s Grand Final,” she said.

“The skills and tactical knowledge of every girl, along with increased fitness as the season progressed, has seen them take first place on the ladder with the extra achievement of being undefeated.” 

The team’s major semi-final win, also over the Bulldogs Blaze, highlighted their determination with only 6 players available.

“As a coach, I have been delighted, but not surprised at how this team can gel under stress to keep calm and play their game,” Mrs O’Connor said

“If they bring their A game we should have a very good chance of taking the trophy.”

A grand final win would also be the ideal preparation for the Reds assault on the NSW Netball Schools Cup State final next Tuesday at Netball Central, Homebush.

Hoping to weather the Storm one more time ... the ASC Colts 

The Reds are one of two ASC sides gunning for premiership glory on Saturday with the Colts taking on the Triumph Storm.

ASC will go into the match slight favourites courtesy of their 6 goal win over the Storm in the major semi two weeks ago.

But there hasn’t been much between the two sides this year with the Storm beating the Colts 33-30 in their first encounter  and ASC returning the favour 33-21 in the second.

The Storm finished as minor premiers, three points ahead of ASC with an average of 30.5 goals for and 23.4 against per game.

But despite finishing second ASC were superior in scoring with an average 40.7 goals for and 22.7 against per game.

ASC very nearly had four teams in grand finals this Saturday with the thirds and Under 16 Reds both losing close preliminary finals last week.

The 16 Reds lost a thriller 22-19 to Bulldogs Divas while LJ Hooker Hits were just a little too good on the day for the Thirds winning 28-23.

Both teams are to be congratulated on stellar seasons!          


ASC Netball Semi Finals

In the grand final with a week off ... The ASC Colts 

Two ASC teams advanced directly to the BNA Grand Finals last Saturday.

The all-conquering ASC 14 Reds maintained their unbeaten run with a 24-20 win over Bulldogs Blaze in the 16 B competition while ASC Colts defeated Triumph Storm 31-25.

Both matches were close affairs with the Reds being held to a sub 15 goal winning margin for the first time since their 24-22 defeat of Bulldogs Diamonds in round two.

The ASC 16 Reds will have to take the long road to the grand final after losing their 16A major final to Panthers Renshaws 36-15.

The 16 Reds will now back up this Saturday against Bulldogs Divas in the preliminary final.

The Divas go into the game off a solid 26-12 win over Scots Gold in the elimination semi-final and are sure to be tough opposition having lost by just 2 goals to ASC in their only regular season clash.

The ASC Thirds are also still alive after defeating Eglinton All Stars Eagles 28-12 in their elimination semi-final last Saturday.

They will now play for a spot in the C Reserve I grand final this Saturday against LJ Hooker Hits, who were comprehensively beaten by the powerhouse GJ Gardners team in the major semi-final.

It should be a thrilling encounter with only three goals separating the teams in their two regular season clashes.


ASC Netball Last Round Preview

Sporting seasons don’t come much better than the one the ASC 14 Red netball team is experiencing this year.

The side has only recently progressed to the state finals of the Netball NSW Schools Cup and this Saturday will attempt to finish the Bathurst Netball Association Under 16 B regular season as unbeaten minor premiers.

There’s no reason to suggest they won’t either having crushed their opponents, the Bathurst 12 District Reps, by 50 goals in their previous clash this season.

But whatever the result the Reds will be lining up against the Blaze in the major semi-final with the Bulldogs side safe in second place.

The Reds are one of four ASC teams looking to position themselves for the semi-finals this weekend.

The Thirds are guaranteed third place in C Res II but will finish second if they defeat Scots and Eglinton All Stars Eagles can upset LJ Hooker Hits.

Whatever the result it will take a mighty effort by all teams to overcome the Panthers GJ Gardners team who despite a last-round forfeit have amassed an enormous 827 goals for and just 95 against.

ASC Colts are also guaranteed a place in the top four but could go top if they defeat Eglinton Thunder and Bathurst 13 Reps upset Triumph Storm.

Even with a loss, they should retain second place on account of their superior for and against.

ASC 16 Red are also safe in second place whatever the weekend results in the 16A competition but will be looking for a good win over Bathurst 13 Dev Reps to give them momentum heading into a major semi-final clash with Panthers Renshaws.

Unfortunately the Firsts are now out of contention after losing a high-scoring clash with City Colts CKM 49-41.  


ASC Netball Round Up 13th August 2016

ASC Firsts have one last chance to break back into the top four this Saturday.

ASC are in fifth position on the A Res I table, just one point behind City Colts CKM, who they take on this weekend, and Bulldogs Bombshells who have the bye.

Should they win they will leapfrog both sides into third position but with the bye in the last round will still need one of those teams to lose their final round game to be guaranteed a finals berth.

City Colts would be hot favourites to win their last round clash with Bushrangers but luckily for ASC the Bombshells face a much tougher task against the powerful LJ Hooker Hawks giving the girls every chance if they claim a win on Saturday.

They will go into the match in good form following a convincing 50-35 victory over Triumph Thunder last Saturday.

The team was without Captain Neive Roebuck but all of the girls stepped up in a great all-around performance.

Georgia Butt and Hannah Nobes produced some fantastic plays and strong passes in the centre court while Sophie Cant showed her stamina to play a full game at centre.

Georgia Poole and Bella Seigert defended brilliantly, pulling down plenty of rebounds while the sniper like shooting of Ella Lewis, `Princess of the Week’ kept the score ticking over.

Saturdays’ critical clash starts at 2:30pm.

In other matches, the ASC Colts solidified their position at the top of the ladder with a convincing 45-18 win while the Thirds got home by 4 goals to move within a point of second place and a second chance in the semi-finals.

The Seconds were involved in yet another tight match but went down by 4 in the end while Under 14 Blue had a tough time of it against Collegians Little GG’s.

Under 14 Red, 14 White and 16 Blue had forfeits while Under 16 Red had the bye.


Reds Into State Finals!

All Saints’ Under 14 Red team have qualified for the state finals of the Netball NSW Schools Cup next month.

The Under 14 Reds booked their spot at Netball HQ in Homebush with a hard fought 11-6 victory over Orange High in the regional finals at Orange on 10th August 2016.

Both teams displayed great technical skills and should be commended for their level of sportsmanship, fitness and ability.

Year 8 girls; Zoe Lewis, Natalie Mawhood, Kate McEwen & Sara Reynolds were fantastic role models both on and off the court to talented Year 7’s; Sophie Hillsdon, Hilary O’Connor, Megan Redpath & Holly Stokes.

Sophie showed her versatility moving from goal shooting to goal defending to wing attack and was unstoppable in every position!

Kate was a real workhorse covering plenty of court at centre and wing defence and her determination never waived throughout the day.

Natalie is a great team player who kept her cool when the girls needed it most at centre court and wing defence while Zoe played to her absolute best and more at both ends of the court, impressing at both goal keeper and goal attack.

Hilary was unflappable with her calm shooting under pressure and great rebounding skills while intercepts and quick thinking were Megan’s trademarks in both wing attack and wing defence.

Holly also chimed in with plenty of intercepts and her defensive skills were game breakers throughout the day while Sara dominated the opposition at goal keeper.

The harder the matches became the better she played and she even showed she is a terrific shooter too!

The ASC girls worked hard for wins against Dunedoo Central, Condobolin High, Parkes High and South Dubbo before going down by 2 goals to Orange High in their final round robin match.

They met South Dubbo in the semi-finals, just outlasting them by a goal in a tough and very physical encounter to set up a rematch with Orange High in the final.

Special thanks to the ASC support crew of Annabelle Hillsdon, Kerrie Redpath & her mother Helen, Kim Stokes and Alison Lewis who kept the team fed and hydrated while also scoring and managing the gear throughout the day!

Manager Kay Nelson was a tower of strength, guiding the team through the day with expertise and kindness.

ASC Netball Round Up 6th August 2016

All smiles ... the ASC Firsts believe they are close to recapturing their 2015 premiership-winning form after a narrow loss to Collegians last Saturday

They mightn’t have won the game but ASC Firsts showed they aren’t too far away from last year’s premiership-winning form in Saturday’s grand final replay with Collegians Mystified.

Collegians beat ASC by 18 the first time they met this year but it was much closer this time around with the girls recovering from a slow start to lose a thriller 48-44

Georgia Poole’s spectacular intercepts kept the ASC attack on their toes in the first quarter but Collegians proved almost unstoppable as they shot out to a 12 goal lead.

ASC found their rhythm in the second with Georgia Butt, Soph and Hannah’s tight defence in centre court and Libby and Ella’s flawless shooting combining to put the firsts back in the game.

Some great rebounds by Bella in the defensive circle produced even more attacking opportunities as ASC attempted to level the score.

Scores were level with 3 minutes to go but Collegians held their nerve to seal the win with four more goals.

While disappointed to lose the Firsts can take plenty away from their performance as they look to seal a finals spot in the last three rounds of the regular season.

Meanwhile, the ASC 14 Reds underlined their 16B premiership credentials with a resounding 40 to 14 win over top of the table Bulldogs Blaze.

The girls have now won all 7 games they have played this season and will be keen to maintain their undefeated record until the semi-finals.

ASC Colts were also impressive again, consolidating their position at the top of the table with a crushing 46-7 win over Bulldogs Bubbles.

In other matches, the Seconds went within an ace of their second win in a row in their 38-all draw with Nova Sky while ASC 16 Red claimed second place on the 16A Ladder with a big 46-10 win over Eglinton Dynamite.

ASC Netball Round Up 30th July 2016

Some breakthrough results by teams that have been doing it tough highlighted a great round of Netball for ASC on the weekend.

ASC Under 14 White led the charge picking up just their second win of the season with an impressive 30-7 drubbing of Collegians Strikers.

While Under 14 White are in seventh position on the 14B table they are only three points out of the top four and should they continue to respond to the intense training program of Coach Mrs Casey finals wouldn’t be out of the question.

The ASC Seconds broke a run of narrow losses with a nail biting 36-35 win over fourth-placed LJ Hooker Hearts.

Coach Mrs Sutton, the girls, and the crowd were overjoyed as Ruby sealed the win with a full-time buzzer beater that brought everyone off the edges of their seats and onto their feet.

The Seconds’ position on the A Reserve II table belies how competitive they have been this year with the majority of their losses being by only 3-4 goals.

The Under 14 Blue team were also celebrating breaking through for their first competition points after a well-deserved 18-all draw with Eglinton Wildcats in 14A.

They showed plenty of determination and spirit in a challenging match and will be hoping to go one better this week.

In other matches, the Thirds continued their impressive form with a 55-12 demolition job on Bulldogs Kamikaze.

The thirds are second on the C Reserve 1 table, four points adrift of the seemingly unbeatable Panthers GJ Gardiners team averaging almost 84 points a match and conceding less than 10!

ASC Colts also impressed in their 46-18 win over Eglinton Diamonds and are now in equal second place on the table.

ASC Under 16 Red are also in second place in the 16A competition following a 33-19 win over Bathurst 12 Reps but are still 7 points adrift of an unbeaten Panthers Renshaw’s team averaging over 31 points a game and conceding less than 8!

Under 16 Blue were the only ASC side in action not to pick up a win on the weekend losing to Out Of Touch Firebirds 39-19 but they are still clinging to fourth position in the 16B competition by a point 

Fellow 16B rivals ASC Under 14 Red had a bye while the Firsts won on a forfeit from Bushrangers.

The firsts’ record is now 50 percent and they are right in the mix for the finals.

ASC Netball Round Up 23rd July 2016

It has been a tough second half of the season for ASC netball with multiple washouts robbing many squads of any chance to build momentum.

One notable exception has been the ASC Under 14’s Red team playing in the BNA Under 16B competition.

Despite playing in an older division the girls are undefeated with 6 wins.

They maintained their unbeaten run on Saturday with an emphatic 37-4 win over Bulldogs Diamonds.

With five rounds to go in the regular season, they sit second on the ladder by a point to Bulldogs Blaze.

ASC Red actually beat the Blaze when they met this year but the Blaze’s bye fell on one of the washout rounds while ASC had theirs on a played round creating a confusing situation where the Bulldogs side have actually played one more game than ASC in the same amount of rounds!

Ironically it is the point gained for the loss to Saints that is keeping them on top!

ASC 14 Red was one of only three teams to record a win on Saturday with the Thirds defeating Scots 

34-11 and Colts downing Triumph Storm 33-21 but All Saints’ other squads aren’t letting the tough times get them down.

In fact, they are all training harder than ever in a bid to finish strongly and have something to really celebrate at the annual Netball Dinner on September 8.


Libby Selected for AICES Team!

The WAS team that finished 3rd in the Open AICES Championships

ASC Firsts player Elizabeth Crampton has been selected in the AICES Netball team to contest the NSWCIS Championships in August.

Elizabeth was one of three ASC players vying for a spot while competing for the WAS team at the Open AICES Championships last week.

Sophie Cant and Neive Roebuck also played big roles for the WAS team which finished in 3rd place with Neive later joining Elizabeth in the gruelling possibles vs probables trials.

Running third was a terrific result for the WAS which is one of the smallest associations, drawing from only 4 schools, and Elizabeth’s achievement makes it even better. 

Congratulations on this impressive achievement Elizabeth and we wish you the best of luck at the NSWCIS championships.


ASC Netball Round Up 28th May 2016

All matches cancelled due to inclement weather


ASC Netball Round Up 21st May 2016

ASC Firsts fought hard but were unable to overcome the loss of three key players in their grand final rematch with Collegians Mystified on Saturday.

Centre court players Sophie Cant, Hannah Nobes and shooter Elizabeth Crampton were all absent due to the Presentation Ball forcing a major reshuffle and bringing Abigail Miller, Dominique Mitton and Sophie Hobson into the side.

Collegians started strongly and ASC were clearly rattled by their speed, shooting accuracy and agility.
Georgia Butt worked hard to control the pace in the centre court and  bring Dominique and Abigail into the game more but ASC still trailed by 15 at half-time.

But ASC weren’t about to give up and stepped up the intensity in the third quarter.

Sophie Hobson’s ball movement within the circle was the key to a steadily improving shooting partnership with Ella while Georgia Poole and Bella’s tips and hard-fought rebounds paid dividends in defence.

But Collegians weren’t to be denied and stepped up the pace again to win 55-27.

Although disappointed in the final score the girls were proud of their enthusiastic and calm approach to the game.

Dominique, Sophie and Abigail also played well in the higher grade showing plenty of potential for the future.

ASC Seconds had a much closer game but were still pipped at the post by Nova Sky 47-45.

There was only a point between the two sides for most of the thrilling end to end affair.

All the girls played tirelessly with Dominique Mitton winning player of the match for her terrific performance in centre court.

ASC Thirds managed to overcome the loss of their debutantes to defeat arch rivals Scots 40-23.
Genevieve King and Grace Milton stepped up to assist and despite their youth played like seasoned third graders.

It was the 3rds third win a row and has them in second place on the table behind the dominant Panthers G.J. Gardners outfit.

ASC Colts used their tough defence to demoralise Bulldogs Bubbles in their clash winning 46-13.

Ruby, Ella and Daisy shot superbly while Ella played in WD for the first time ever and added a new dimension to the centre court line-up.

The Colts are gelling very well as a team and look forward to tighter battles in the coming weeks.

In other results 16 Blue lost to Bulldogs Diamonds 41-13, 16 Red defeated Eglinton Dynamite 41-9, 14 Blue lost to Eglinton Divas 25-16, 14 Red won 41-25 over Bulldogs Blaze and 14 White lost 8-3 to Bathurst 11 Yellow Reps

Seconds and 14 White are reminded they have clubhouse duty this Saturday, 28th May.


Under 14 Reds Into Regional Finals of

Netball NSW Schools Cup

Congratulations to the ASC 14 Red netball team who have qualified for the regional finals of the Netball NSW Schools Cup Competition.

They progressed to the next level after finishing second at a carnival in Bathurst on Friday 20th May.

The girls played in the Year 7/8 division with seven other teams from Bathurst, Orange, Cowra, and Oberon.

The Schools Cup is a Netball NSW initiative providing New South Wales primary and secondary students with the opportunity to enjoy netball in a fun and safe environment.

If the girls are successful in the regional finals they will advance to the Netball NSW Schools Cup State Final to be held at Netball Central, Sydney Olympic Park in September.

This is an exciting opportunity for this group of girls and we look forward to the regional finals in Orange in August.

Congratulations to: Holly Stokes, Sara Reynolds, Megan Redpath, Zoe Lewis, Sophie Hillsdon, Kate McEwen, Natalie Mawhood, Scarlett Mitchell, Hilary O’Connor

Netball Gala Day 2016

Tuesday afternoon saw the netball courts of All Saints' College turn international, with the playing of the ever popular All Saints' College Netball Gala Day.

The event saw over half of the senior school population, 19 teams in all, participate in a fun netball event, while dressing as their chosen country.

Teams were divided into junior, intermediate and senior divisions. The focus of the event was participation, camaraderie, friendship and less about netball skill and talent.

There were plenty of laughs and exceptional mishaps!

Prizes were awarded for division winners and best-dressed teams.

In keeping with the 'international' theme, a BBQ was run with all proceeds going to the building of a freshwater well at Chheab Secondary School, Preah Vihear Province, Cambodia. 

Chheab Secondary School was visited by the Munro family in December 2015. 

The school has no access to fresh water, toilets or electricity.  All Saints' College Community aims to raise a total of $4500 to assist with the development of those infrastructures. 

The first target to meet was $700.  This would see the construction of an operational well and hand pump. 

Thanks to loads of hungry netballers and some generous donations that target was reached with a total of $708 being raised. 

A big thank you must go to Bernardi's IGA who sponsored the BBQ, all the volunteers who assisted with serving or donating goods and Kay Nelson for organising the Netball Gala Day.

It was great to see people active and enjoying themselves on a lovely balmy autumn afternoon while raising enough money to provide a freshwater well for a small secondary school in rural Cambodia.

Planning has started on a second fundraising event which will occur in Term 2. 

Thank you for your continuing support.
