On a typical July winter day in Melbourne, a squad of 70 student from Years 7 - 12 ventured out to Royal Park Ovals in Parkville for the annual SCSA AFL Carnival Day.
OLMC was represented by three teams, Junior (Years 7 - 8), Intermediate (Years 9 - 10) and Seniors (Years 11 - 12). The teams had been selected from trials and training conducted in Term 2.
OLMC played in Division 1 Pool and was up against Genazzano College, St Columba's College, Avila College and Mater Christi College, each of our teams played four games and the winners then proceeded to go on to the Grand Final.
Our Junior Team was very strong in the pool matches and continued from strength to strength to take out the SCSA Division 1 Junior AFL Carnival Premiers.
The Intermediates Team had come up against tough opposition in the pool matches and unfortunately lost the Grand Final to a stronger Avila College.
Our Senior Team faced a very strong Genazzano College team. It was only in the dying stages of the match that Ava J. sealed the match with a winning goal to take out the SCSA Division 1 Grand Final.
Congratulations to all of the students from OLMC for a fantastic day of AFL and to Scarlett F. for winning the Best Junior GF Player and Ava J. winning the Senior Grand Final Player.
