Marymede student Joel Grace (Year 9) has recently been selected in the Victorian Under 15’s Boys School Sport AFL Squad.
Joel will now have the privilege to compete for The Big 'V' at the AFL National Championships which is to be scheduled to take place in Sydney from the July 20 to July 26.
Joel, a Ruckmen, currently plays for the Marymede Catholic College School team along with his local team South Morang FC. Having previously been involved in representative sides along with Northen Knights sqauds in the past, Joel has said he is both 'excited' and 'nervous' about the great opportunities that await him. "I'm just hoping to go out there, give it all i've got and do my very best" says Joel, who is also a promising Basketball talent, which is no surprise given his tall frame.
2014 will be the first time in around a decade that Victoria will field only one side in the Championships, having previously opted for both Vic Metro and Vic Country teams and Joel is one of only 25 to make the squad. His team will compete against other State sides including South Australia, ACT, New South Wales, Tasmainia , Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia .
We congratulate Joel on this great achievement and wish him the best of luck at the upcoming National Championships.
Throughout the Term 2 holiday break, the Multi-purpose Sports courts in the Primary School have gone through a mini makeover having been restored with new synthetic surface.
The works are now complete with the courts looking great and ready for play come the commencement of Term 3, 2014.
This project was made possible through donations from the Parents & Friends Committee as a result of their 2013 Fundraising campaign.
