CHEVALIER College students have once again shown their talent on the sporting field.
Chevalier picked up a swag of shields and trophies on Independent Sporting Association (ISA) grand final day on Saturday.
The Highlands college emerged with four champion shields for the ISA winter competition.
Chevalier was recognised for solid performances in all grades in four sport categories.
Teams were celebrated in boys football, girls netball, girls hockey and boys rugby union.
The college had seven teams emerge as grand final winners on Saturday.
Chevalier’s firsts boys rugby union, junior As girls hockey, junior As girls netball, inter C girls netball, and boys 13As, 14As and open seconds football teams recorded wins.
The firsts boys rugby side secured a 36-17 win in its grand final.
The college’s junior A hockey girls capped off the season with a 5-0 victory.
The Chev junior A girls netball team won 42-19 to remain undefeated in 2016.
The inter C girls team secured a 26-21 win on Saturday.
It was a delightful day for three Chev football teams.
The 13As won 2-0, the 14As team had a 2-1 victory and the open seconds side recorded a 3-1 win.
Chevalier College’s extra curricular administrator Andrew Bell said it had been a successful season for Chev.
“It was incredible to win the champion shield for four sports,” he said.
“We only missed out in girls football, but we won that last year.
“It recognises what teams do each week across the board, it’s like a club championship.”
Bell said he had also received feedback about Chevalier students showing good sportsmanship.
“We’ve heard really good comments about the students carrying themselves well,” Bell said.
Liam O’Malley captained the Chevalier firsts rugby union side to victory.
Liam said it was a gutsy performance.
“It was great to lead the team to victory.
“The boys played their hearts out,” he said.
