Darling Downs Swimming Championships
This week we had the Darling Downs 10-12 years Swimming and the 13-19 years Swimming Trials at Gatton.
We had 4 participants at the 13-19 years event where Bailey Harm broke three records on his way to making the Darling Downs Team. Bailey set new marks in the 13 years 100m Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke and the 50m Freestyle. William Gilmore, in his final year at SCOTS, once again showed his class to make the Darling Downs Team alongside Bailey. Ellyse Kruger and Nicholas McGahan finished in the top 5 of their respective events, with Nick bagging 3rd place in his favoured event. Both Ellyse and Nicholas were very unlucky not to make the team with performances just outside qualifying.
At the 10-12 years Championships, 6 of our students put it all on the line for their chance to make the Darling Downs Team. It was a tough day at the office for these little champions. Bridie Hutchison, Hannah Bourke, Colby Miller, Archie Holden and Douglas Lawlor all battled hard, but Ella Hutchison was our best performer with second in the 9yrs Backstroke and 6th in the Freestyle. Unfortunately, none were selected to the Darling Downs team, but all gained valuable experience at this higher level of competition.

Both teams progress to the Grand Final next week.
The SCOTS Firsts and SCOTS Cardinal are out of finals contention but will figure in playoffs next week.
Futsal Boys – Final Weeks
Our U12 SCOTS Blue Team continue to be a dominant force defeating ladder leaders Concordia on Monday Night to press for finals honours in the coming weeks.
The SCOTS Firsts put up another good fight but still can’t seem to get all players together on the same night to be at our strongest. SCOTS Green are developing as players and a team whilst our newbies in SCOTS Cardinal are on a steep learning curve.
Next Monday will see Cross over matches played before the finals on March 15th.
Senior Cricket Team – T20 Gala Day
On Wednesday, our Senior Cricket Squad ventured forth to Toowoomba for a Gala day against other schools from the region.
The boys faced Downlands first, and the early start seemed to suit our opponents much better than ourselves, with Downlands running out the victors.
Our second game proved much closer, with Mantaj Brar scoring 22 and Adrien Mayfield some 30+ runs off the Harristown attack. Unfortunately, a less disciplined effort with the ball resulted in a win to the boys from Harristown SHS.
St Joseph’s proved too strong in our final game, but the shining light of Darcy Brennan with his slashing 41 was a highlight.
Dan Hughes and Lachlan Woods were most economical with the ball in hand during the day, whilst Mantaj Brar was most consistent with the bat, scoring 16, 22 and 18 in each of his three innings.
Our Junior School Hockey Team continue to sweep all before them as they stand on top of the table undefeated.
The relatively young and somewhat inexperienced team are very enthusiastic and keen to learn more about the great game of Hockey.
Our Arranmore Program continues to produce players of a high calibre that allows for this team to grow in status. Thanks to Mrs Angela Groves for her commitment to our program and the wider Warwick Hockey Community and to Mrs Rebecca Grayson as our diligent and dedicate manger.
