EREA NATIONAL SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIPS
The EREA National Soccer Tournament took place in Brisbane between April 9th to12th. Under the watchful eye of coach Mr David Norton and assisted by Mr Daniel Mahony, sixteen Year 8 students headed north to represent the College in this competition. Day One of the Tournament saw Parade perform extremely well with two solid wins in the preliminary rounds against St.James and Terrace Red. As a result of their effort, Parade played St. Edmunds in the Quarter Finals on the morning of Day Two and were again victorious. This led to a semi-final match against, St. Joseph’s Nudgee College. The boys played a fantastic game involving a solid defence and creative forward play. A 5 to 1 win resulted in Parade making the final which was played on Wednesday April 12th against St. Pats. from the ACT. The cohesiveness of the team improved with each game, and this trend continued into the final. Parade started the match in scintillating form scoring 3 goals in the first 15 minutes of the game. This score line remained unchanged for the entire match resulting in Parade being crowned the EREA National Soccer Junior Champions for 2017.
Congratulations to Mr Norton and Mr Mahony for coaching the team and also to the sixteen boys pictured and listed below on a fantastic performance. Whilst the coaches spoke highly of the team’s performance, they were equally impressed by the sportsmanship displayed by the boys and their general behaviour throughout the entire trip. Thanks also to Mr Dave Capra (Ambrose Treacy College), Mr Eddie Wallace (St. Laurence College) for organising the Tournament and Mrs Vicki Dodds (St. Joseph’s Nudgee College) for coordinating accommodation for the Parade team.

ACC SWIMMING 2017
The ACC Swimming Championships were held at MSAC on Friday February 24th. As a result of winning Division 2 in 2016, Parade were promoted into Division 1, with the aim was to cement a place in the premier division. Parade entered the 2017 Championships with an air of confidence as performances from the more seasoned Parade swimmers at recent State and National level indicated improvement from 2016. This, coupled with the addition of good Year 7 swimmers and increased strength from the middle tiered performers provided the team with more depth. Ably lead by team captain, Jordan Chapman, Parade finished 4th in the Championship, which is the most successful team performance since 2003. Some of the outstanding swims throughout the night included Year 11 student, Todd Martin (L09) who equalled the ACC record in the U/16 Backstroke in a time 29.17 and Year 10 student, Flynn McMahon (T04) who was the fastest swimmer on the night recording 25.57 to win the U/17 50M Freestyle.
