On a typical Winter day in Melbourne, the annual Catholic Girls Sports Association of Victoria (CGSAV) AFL Carnival was held at the Royal Park Playing Fields in Parkville. The Division 1 Competition was made up of five schools: Avila College, Genazzano College, Mater Christi College, Our Lady of Sion and Our Lady of Mercy College. The Senior, Intermediate and Junior sections competed on separate grounds.

The competition in each section was formidable, with many close games due to a high level of teamwork and determination.

The OLMC Senior team lost two games to Our Lady of Sion and Genazzano, finishing the day third and just missing out on the finals.

The OLMC Intermediate team also lost two games against Mater Christi and Avila, resulting in fourth place and out of finals contention.

The OLMC Junior were the success story of the day, with three wins and a loss to Genazzano earlier in the rounds. OLMC qualified for the Junior Finals where they played Genazzano for the second time.

The final was a tough and pressured game, with OLMC looking to avenge their loss earlier in the day and beat Genazzano. The team was victorious, with a final score line of nine points to OLMC against one point to Genazzano.

The Most Valuable Player in the final was awarded to OLMC student Kayla B (8BFA).

Congratulations to all our Junior Footballers on a fantastic result and to all the OLMC students who participated for our school so valiantly throughout the day.
