In Term one, the Mernda Park Tennis team won the premiership. We are super proud of our tennis team this term. They put in the hard work and effort into reaching the set goal we had in our minds. It is the first premiership win that we have achieved in tennis in our school’s short history! Getting back to sport after these two years of lockdown gave us a boost in confidence, energy and excitement. Throughout the season, knowing that we had had some loses and some wins it was really hard to tell what was coming next. We are now heading into the Division Finals in Term 4 and…we cannot wait!

Mixed Cricket was an electrifying season, packed with many plot-driven games. It was immensely exhilarating and every match had astonishing results. Every team played fairly, allowing us to enjoy an ideal and pleasurable tournament. As well as having an extraordinary season, we achieved runners up, winning all but one match. Thanks to everyone from MPPS that helped to make this tournament possible, all players that participated and played their best to endure a challenging season. We hope you all had as good a time as we did!

This term has been absolutely incredible. Before this year girls cricket had never won a game but this season our luck changed. Not only did we win all of our games except one, it was just so awesome to be back into sport again. It finally seems normal! All the girls were fired up and ready to win, finally being out of lockdown it was a boost of enthusiasm. Our competition was fierce and we finished the term equal first, meaning it came down to percentage. Although we didn't win outright, we are so thankful to have had such a fantastic season. We’d like to shout out the entire team and coaches for the amazing season full of games. We would also like to thank them for their hard work and dedication towards the sport. We appreciate all the schools that came together to play after this challenging two years and we are now looking forward to our new sports in Term 2.
