Pacific Coast five do famously
FIVE students from Pacific Coast Christian School at Tweed Heads South attended the NSW Touch Football Carnival last week in Newcastle.
The carnival, played on Thursday, March 26 saw the students excel and achieve strong results which saw them reach the finals.
Leaving before dawn on March 25, the Pacific Coast students and their teacher, Mrs Vella, embarked on the long journey to Newcastle.
The performances of the five Pacific Coast representatives - Jahdal Watts, Fons Frank, Zac Catlin, Levi Harm (15s) and Jessica Kermond (Open) - were outstanding, with both the under-15 and Open girls' teams making the finals.
Mr Gallagher, Pacific Coast's Secondary sports co-ordinator, said the boys had played inconsistently in the pool rounds, exhibiting patches of brilliance followed by lapses in attention.
“Due to that inconsistency, they finished third, therefore sadly missing the final,” Mr Gallagher said.
“However the girls achieved an outstanding result after some close and torrid tussles to finish second overall.”
This carnival was also a selection trial for the NSW CSSA State Teams.
Two Pacific Coast students - Fons Frank and Zac Catlin - put in amazing efforts and were identified to participate in the state team.
