In late September the Scotch Oakburn College Athletics
Team travelled to the Penguin Athletics Centre to compete at
this year’s NSATIS carnival, involving four other independent
schools – St Patrick’s College, Launceston Church Grammar
School, Marist Regional College and St Brendan-Shaw.
The day was a great success, with the U13 Girls and
Open Boys age groups performing strongly to achieve their
respective age group pennants. Overall, we were unlucky to
finish a close second in the great majority of shields across the
board. Congratulations must go to Jaimie Summers in the U16
Javelin who threw 33.08 to beat the NSATIS record.
In October the team travelled to the Hobart Domain
Athletics Centre to compete in the SATIS athletics carnival,
involving 14 independent schools from across the state. We
finished second in aggregate boys and girls as well as second in
Congratulations to the U13 girls who took out their age
group to win the pennant.

Javelin and Discus, Emma Banbury U15 Girls 1500m, Danieka

The athletics season would not have been successful
without the hard work and dedication of all the staff and
parents involved. Special thanks go to Mr John Poynter, the
Person-In-Charge, for his extensive organisation and the effort
he put into the season. We must also thank Mr Rob Jeffery and
coaches Ross Lovell, Cameron Bailey, Harrison Hughes, Michael
Hanemaayer, Alastair Biffin, Susan McClenaghan and Claire
It is evident that Scotch Oakburn has a great cohort of
athletes and a strong athletic culture, which continues to
impress at each carnival. On behalf of the Year 12 athletes, we
wish future athletes of the College the best of luck, and also
thank everyone who has made our school athletics careers so
enjoyable during our time at Scotch Oakburn College.

2014 has proved to be yet another successful year for
Badminton at Scotch Oakburn College. The Senior Firsts went
undefeated all season, but unfortunately went down in the
NSATIS final by just eight points, ending a seven-year reign as
Badminton continues to be a popular choice of students for
their winter sport, with more than 60 students participating
this year. With such a large number of students it meant they
needed to play on a rotational basis in the NSATIS-rostered
matches throughout the season. Along with training this helped
the students develop their skills, have some fun with their
friends and opponents, but really helped to build a great team
In Division 1 our First and Second teams fought it out against
Launceston Church Grammar School and St Patrick’s College
and all teams experienced an enjoyable season. Our Firsts team
consisted of Grayson Lester, Sophie Lee, Zachary Bird, Hannah
Wolfhagen, Joel Harwood, Kate Eatts, Nathan Watson and
Annie Wang, while our Seconds team comprised Dean Saville,
Ellia Sandor, Riley Jones, Alex Bird, Nick Taylor, Emily Cain,
George Waller and Gabby Shay.
All of these Division 1 players were very dedicated and
played an excellent season, providing strong competition for
their opponents. A special mention must be made of Riley
Jones, Dean Saville, George Waller and Tayla Radford for their
dedication and enthusiasm for the sport.
Two teams were entered in the Division 2 roster with
approximately 40 students competing in rotation. Scotch
Oakburn Maroon defeated Launceston Church Grammar
School in the Division 2 NSATIS Final. Though many students
contributed to the College’s Division 2 win over the season, the
finals’ team of Simone Saville, Connor Towns, Lillian Stewart,
Ryan Barwick, Clare Robertson, Braydon Rainbow, Josie Brown
and Henry Crosswell must be commended on their efforts in
the final for an 80-point win.
A massive thank you goes to Ms Angela Vaughan, our
wonderful Person-In-Charge of Badminton, for her dedication
and for being an enthusiastic coordinator for our teams. Thanks
also to Mrs Joy Russell for being the best right hand lady for Ms
Vaughan. Without these two the season would never have run
as smoothly as it did. Thanks must also go to Mr Philip Waller
and Mr Rob Jeffery for their supervision and support of our
teams when competing at other schools.
We have both been truly overwhelmed by the passion and
commitment the students have shown to badminton this year
and how they have made our final season of Badminton such
an enjoyable and memorable one. We wish the future leaders
and players of badminton all the best for the coming seasons.
