Trinity News : August 2012
VOLLEYBALL RUGBY SENIORSCHOOLSPORT The old Superman films could well change their slogan “Faster than a speeding bullet” to “Faster than a competitor in the Head Master’s Dash”, such was the vigorous enthusiasm shown by the wide range of competitors throughout this year’s competition! And not to mention the duelling running spikes in the Staff event between former Olympian, our Mr Andrew Murphy, and the current holder of the fastest Top Gun at Trinity Mr Andrew Vernon (Class of 2011)! The heats were held during the previous week, and the Finals on the Thursday 5th April the last day of term. There were two or three overly nervous ‘breakers’, but on the whole the heats were run with great efficiency, while the finals produced the following results, with the Top Gun for 2012 being Jacob Roberts (12Sc) - at right. | Ron Ogier SPEEDING BULLETS LIGHTNING FLASHES THE HEAD MASTER’S DASH Congratulations to Henry Clunies-Ross (12Sc), Cameron Orr (12St) and Faaope Satiu (11Ho) who were selected to represent the New South Wales Schools’ Rugby teams over the mid-year holiday break. Henry was selected in the NSW 1st XV who went on to comprehensively defeat Queensland 1st XV in the final of the National Schools Championships, while Cameron and Faaope were selected for the NSW 2nd XV who came third, defeating the Queensland 2nd XV. To the delight of the coaching staff (and his family), Cameron was then selected to play for the Australian Schools ‘ XV and was a member of the team that trounced the Tonga Schools XV . This is a wonderful achievement and continues our run of schoolboy representatives at the highest level. Cameron has also been selected to represent the Sydney Under 17s against NSW Country Juniors, together with Amanakiola Moala (12Ar) and Brent Whicker (12Yo). Bradley Barr | MIC Rugby clockwise from below: Cameron Orr | Henry Clunies-Ross | Faaope Satiu From the humble beginnings of being a helper at older brother Dennis’ (Captain of the 1st VI 2008) training sessions, Dimitri Sidiropoulos has just represented Australia in the U18s volleyball team which competed in Thailand. Within four short years of starting Volleyball, Dimitri has gone from strength to strength in the game. In 2009 he was selected in the NSW U15s All-Schools team where he was identified as a future star at the National Titles. From there he made all the junior state teams including the U17s and the U19s. In an international title held in Bangkok in April this year, Dimitri represented his country with honour and his team finished a credible 4th place. Dimitri is a perfect example of an athlete who is willing to work hard, take constructive criticism, reflect upon that criticism and try even harder to improve. He also possesses outstanding leadership qualities which are reflected in his position as School Captain, Young House captain, Captain of the 1st VI Volleyball team and captain of the NSW U19s state team. Coaching Dimitri has been a rewarding experience and I would like to congratulate him on his herculean effort over the last few years. I am supremely confident that his determination and desire to constantly improve will see Dimitri continue to represent Australia and if he so wishes, will gain him a fulfilling professional career in Volleyball in Europe.
