EMERGING TALENT IN DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKING - ZAC INGRAM

Zac Ingram
In Early March at the Australian Interschools , Zac Ingram Year 10, representing Erindale College finished 3rd place ,missing second by .25 of second and 1st by 4 seconds (approx. 5.30min course) against 98 riders. A great result given that Zac is in his 2nd year of competition.

In Mid-March at the National Downhill MTB Championships on the steepest, wildest and loosest track on the Australian Circuit where a result (or even finishing in one piece) is unpredictable, Zac cemented in the top 5 position in Australia with only .9 of a second separating 3rd 4th and 5th. This was against the top 41 Downhill racers in the country.

Well done Zac.

ERINDALE DOMINATES PENRITH REGIONAL FUTSAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

EC Girls Futsal Team
Recently Erindale White and Erindale Red girls soccer teams both played at the Penrith Regional Futsal Championship and after a long and exhausting day Erindale White made it to the finals and this now gains us entry into the NSW STATE TITLES in July.

It was impressive to see the girls step up and come out firing in the final. Glenmore girls didn’t know how to stop us. Sophie Bui was amazing picking up 4 goals and Niki Krajacic scored a hat trick.
Overall a great day for both teams!!

EC AFL Team

On March 16 Erindale played Hallam Secondary College from Melbourne in an AFL match. The game was held at Allinsure Park in Queanbeyan. This is the third consecutive year the 2 teams played each other. For the first time Erindale won the match, 8.15. (63) to 3.5. (23). Best on ground was Tyler Van Luin. Other notable performers were Matt Vardanega, Bailey Greenwood, Kodi Stevens, Cliff Taylor and Brad Stevens. Thanks to the Queanbeyan Tigers for allowing access to the ground. Both teams enjoyed a lunch and short presentation at the Tigers Club. Thanks also to AFL Canberra for providing 2 very competent umpires.

ERINDALE COLLEGE SOFTBALL TEAM

EC Girls Softball Team

Congratulations to the Erindale Girls Softball team who finished Runners Up in Wednesday’s ACT College carnival.

The girls went down to Lake Ginninderra College 3-2 in the Grand Final. A strong, elite pitcher from Lake G meant that getting on base was a tough ask, however a great start gave us this opportunity and we led going into the 3rd innings. Unfortunately a big hit that would have required a spectacular catch was narrowly missed and it gave Lake G the chance to steal the win.

Thanks also to the boys who came out and assisted with some coaching and umpiring throughout the day.
