Senior Boys AFL

After losing 2 grand finals in a row, we refused to take anything less than a grand final win. With not much time to gel, our team trained well together in the lead up to Round 1. With a mixture of students from Years 10, 11 and 12 it was important that we got to know each other’s playing styles and worked hard with Mr. Ryan to build a common playing style. After winning comfortably in our games leading towards the finals we knew that it wasn't going to be as easy. After losing the previous two Grand Finals, all the boys understood the importance of not getting ahead of ourselves and this was stressed to all the players by the current Year 12 students who were in their third consecutive Grand Final appearance. 
On the day  all the boys were excited, we all turned up to the ground in full school uniform which set the standard for the day. The conditions were  poor with the wind blowing heavily towards one side of the ground, but we didn't let that affect our game. 
We made a great start to the game leading at half time by 5 goals. The team worked well together in the second half ensuring 2014 was the year that CRC Melton won the premiership. It was an honour to lead our team to the first ever Senior Boys AFL Grand Final win. I would like to thank all my team mates and Mr. Ryan for the effort they put in over the duration of the tournament. On behalf of all the Year 12 students we would like to wish all the boys who make the team next year the best of luck. 
Congratulations boys it was well deserved.

Ryan Holzer (Senior Boys AFL Captain)
