Iona, Villa and Laurie’s take out Term 1 honours

St Laurences has taken out the inaugural Open trophy and the AIC AFL aggregate. It was a great first season of Australian Rules for AIC – well supported by all schools who competed. A big thank you to AFLQ and their continued interest and ground support of our competition.

It was good to see that there was a mixture of premierships, SLC took out the Opens; Iona won the Year 8/9 title and Padua won the Year 7’s. The aggregate was close between SLC, Iona and Villa. Congratulations to all teams, 2020 will be exciting!

Villa won the First XI Cricket in a heart stopper against St Laurences on Saturday. Laurie’s had one of the premiership favourites on the ropes early and kept them to the low score of 128. Villa needed the last wicket and Laurie’s only 4 runs, the Villa boys snagged the last wicket and won!

It was a real battle between Ashgrove and Villanova for best cricket school, not unlike previous years. With Ashgrove slightly ahead in the older grades, it was the Villa junior teams that got them over the line in the overall aggregate. Villanova winning the aggregate by 6 points.

Iona was again so dominant in the 2019 volleyball season. Their depth and consistency showing with numerous team premierships. None more impressive though than their 1st VI, only dropping two sets before meeting rivals Ashgrove in Round 7. The winning team took out the title. Ashgrove’s First team were equally impressive throughout the season so it was going to be a great game. Both colleges should be very proud at the high standard at which the game was played. Each point was closely contested with Iona only winning the first two sets by 2 points per set. Iona was just too good and won the game 3-0, an awesome display of school volleyball.

Well done and thank you to all the AIC communities for a great term of sport.
