Touch Teams Soar – Northern Brisbane Interschool Sport League

In a Northpine Sports first, our College entered 2 touch football teams into a new sports competition called the Northern Brisbane Interschool Sport League.  This League runs a variety of sports gala days throughout the year, and this year, we decided to enter some teams into the Touch Football Gala Day.

Our Intermediate Boys (9-10) went undefeated, winning the overall champion award.  This group of boys thrived in this fast-paced environment!  They demonstrated leadership, team work and integrity…in fact, they were awarded the Fair Play award by the tournament organisers.  In the history of the competition and all sports played, no team has won both awards (overall winner and fair play) so this team has really ‘done Northpine proud’.

Our Junior girls (7-8) also played an amazing tournament and came 2nd overall!  They played well not only with each other, but with the other teams and showed incredible sportsmanship and dedication. We couldn’t be more proud with how they represented us.

A huge thank you to Abbey Edser and Dylan Southon for taking these teams out for this special event!
