AIC Athletics

Well done to all athletes across Years 5–12 who proudly represented the College at the AIC Athletics Championships on Tuesday and Wednesday. The culmination of many months of pre-season training ended in some fantastic results on the day, including the achievement of a number of personal bests in track and field events. A more detailed wrap-up of results will be included in next week’s Rock.

AIC Cricket

Coordinator: Mr Gil Bygraves

Students looking to represent St Peters in the AIC cricket season in 2018 should attend preseason trainings at the Mayer nets and oval, starting next week (Monday 30 October). The full training schedule is below. Please note that MSW teams will continue training at their usual times – students currently playing MSW cricket can also choose to attend preseason AIC training on offer. This year, as well, you will notice that we will be trialing specialist batting and bowling sessions instead of a second age group training session. These are not compulsory but I really encourage all boys to attend these sessions to specialise in an area they want to work on or improve in the upcoming season.
