14 pupils represented Aquinas Grammar school at the Year 9 blitz in Woodlands. There were 5 teams participating in the blitz, Victoria College A team, Victoria College B team, Dominican College, Colaiste Feirste and Aquinas. Bria Deighan was named captain of the Aquinas Year 9 team. Bria led her team to 2 victories over Victoria College B team and also Dominican College. All 14 girls fought hard against Victoria College A team, showing great pride in their Aquinas jerseys and working hard together as a team resulted in a draw. The only defeat they had was against Colaiste Feirste, however the match was reduced to 7 players and also shortened to 5 mins each half to accommodate Colaiste Feirste. In each of their matches Aoife McCann stood out the most for her fantastic skills resulting in many super scores. It was a great start to the year for the Aquinas girls, hopefully this will continue throughout the year. Well done again to all the girls listed below who participated in the blitz and thanks again to the 3 year 8 girls who stepped up and played brilliantly against some very tough competitors.
