MOUNTAIN BIKE TEAM

Last Friday on 15 October, the inaugural St Michael’s College Mountain Bike team competed in the School Sport SA Championships at O’Halloran Hill in what was looming as a wet, muddy, and cold day. Cross Country Mountain Biking is a Commonwealth and Olympic event which requires fitness, skill and endurance, where competitors need to traverse and navigate over or around obstacles and up and down hills.

We entered three teams across Year 7 to 11 with the U13 and U15’s commencing their 90-minute race in muddy conditions at 9:00 am. The senior team rode later in the day for 120 minutes and were fortunate that the track dried out after the morning competitors. For most students, it was the first time competing in such an event and it appeared as though all students had a great time:

“The school’s mountain bike state champs was a great event for SMC students to experience a new type of sport within a supportive environment. The event also helped us to work together as a team and represent St Michaels in a respectful manner whilst pedaling to the finish line. Thank you to the staff for organising the day and cheering us on. Overall, everybody had a great time!”

YEAR 8/9 KNOCKOUT BASEBALL

Warm and windy conditions greeted the Knockout Baseball team for its match against Seaton High School at Seaton in the first round of the competition. Despite having only eight players, St Michael’s College was the first to score with three runs in the 2nd innings on the back of hits to Zach Stanmeyre, Kalan Palmer, Boston Hodges and Carter Roe. Our pitchers did well to throw strikes but unfortunately their batters were able to consistently find the gaps in our outfield. In the last inning we were down by three runs and to our credit scored twice but unfortunately fell one run short of making Seaton bat again. A special mention to Matthew Pegoli who got hit by a hard fastball to the arm and battled it out for the remainder of the innings. A great team effort, well done boys. Final result: SMC 6 – Seaton HS 7
