Twelve students from Holy Family School joined other students from the Diocese to form the Wilcannia-Forbes touch football teams. They travelled to Port Macquarie to compete in the Polding Touch trials last Friday against teams from Armidale, Bathurst, Broken Bay, Lismore and Maitland- Newcastle. A total of 67 girls and 27 boys played five games against each other competing for 12 spots per team.
It was a fantastic opportunity for the Holy Family students to build new friendships, watch some super touch teams and to show what great sports they can be. Congratulations to Jorja Simpson and Bronte Thomson who made it into the possibles and probables.
Many thanks to Sue McGrath (Parkes Touch Association), Kate Hillston (boys team manager), Julie Herring (girls team manager) and all the parents who travelled, and offered support and praise to the players.
