The OLMC Junior team finished runners up to a very strong Genazzano team, our Intermediate Team was undefeated and won the Championship, and the Senior team finished fourth overall. OLMC Intermediate team will compete in the Herald Sun Division 2 Round Robin Competition on Tuesday 27 August. We wish them every success.

CGSAV Badminton Tournament

OLMC had three teams compete in the CGSAV Badminton Tournament - Junior, Intermediate and Senior. This competition provided students who rarely participate in GSV an opportunity to represent OLMC. The competition was very strong and our students gave of their best. Our Juniors and Seniors finished 6th and our Intermediates finished 5th. We are looking forward to 2025 when Badminton will become a GSV Sport option in Term 3.
