St Joseph’s College took home the Haldane Nelson Cup for the fourth consecutive time after defeating Swan Hill’s MacKillop College last Wednesday.
St Joseph’s won both junior and senior football at Swan Hill Showgrounds, plus intermediate netball at Alan Garden Reserve, to secure the memorial trophy.
The results were reversed in the junior and senior netball, with MacKillop claiming the wins.
The annual competition is played in honour of Haldane Nelson who taught at both schools before tragically passing away in 2008.
Mr Nelson, a former teacher at MacKillop, had just started a role at St Joseph’s College before his death.
MacKillop won the first two carnivals (2008-09) before St Joseph’s run of four-straight titles.
No competition was held in 2013.
St Joseph’s College teacher and junior boys coach David Armfield said the significance of the day had never been lost.
‘‘The message is always passed on,’’ Armfield said, who taught alongside Haldane at St Joseph’s.
‘‘The winners at the end emphasise the characteristics and qualities Haldane stood for.
‘‘It’s great that we can have this yearly reminder, so the importance and the significance isn’t lost.’’
In the junior boys football, St Joseph’s clinched a tight 9.2
Junior boys full-back Jack McHale and senior boys’ Will Monaghan won St Joseph’s College’s respective best-on-ground medallions.
The intermediate girls also produced the goods on the neighbouring netball courts, winning 62-28 with Jemma Osbourne impressing and winning the best-on-ground nomination.
Tanna Edwards and Emily Atkinson were St Joseph’s best players in the junior (48-25) and senior (55-41) losses respectively.
The competition will commemorate its seventh season at Moama Recreation Reserve in 2015.
