Three Moama Anglican Grammar School students recently competed at the NSW PSSA AFL Championships.
Nic and Xavier Couroupis and Riley Smith were part of the Combined Independent Schools AFL team competing at the championships in Sydney.
‘‘We had to go to Canberra for trials and then we went to Sydney for the championships,’’ Nic said.
Nic has played in the PSSA AFL Championships with the Riverina team, but for Riley and Xavier, the experience was new.
‘‘It was a lot of fun,’’ Xavier said.
The CIS team, one of 12 in the competition, made it to the semi-finals before being defeated by Riverina.
‘‘The Sydney teams weren’t that strong, I think because they play more rugby up there,’’ Riley said.
‘‘It was a good experience, I definitely want to try out again next year.’’
CIS finished fourth overall.
Nic was awarded the Sportsmanship Award and was also voted best player by his teammates during the championships.
School head of sport Adam Snow said being involved in the team showed a huge amount of dedication from the students and their parents.
‘‘There’s a lot of travel involved and it is a big ask,’’ he said.
