On Wednesday 29th May, the three houses battled it out at the annual Inter House Cross Country Carnival. Starting with the ritual of the chanting of war cries, to the highlight of the event, Tug-of-war, it was truly a great day! Spirit within the houses was taken to another level and it’s safe to say that new standards have been set. As captains, we strongly encouraged team spirit and enthusiasm as a whole and believed that if the whole team was dedicated and motivated to win, our level of achievement within the sport would rise.
On the 20th of January the Sandstorm beach soccer tournament took place. ICB sent 4 teams, the open boys, U15 boys, Open girls and U15 girls. The morning fog cleared and the sun came out to heat up the day as the competition itself heated up.
The boys all had a strong start and looked to be the favourites for the day. They both started with a winning run of games. The U15’s even beating an Open team from an opposing school. The girls played well holding their own against some fierce opposition. As the day continued the competition produced some great challenges, triumphs, upsets and a free snag.
The end of term one draws an end to the annual Inter-house swimming carnivals for the year. Huge congratulations to the yellow house on winning both the boys and the girls carnivals; therefore being the overall winners for the Inter-house Swimming Carnival of 2015. A job well done to red house for 2nd place and blue house in 3rd not being too far behind.
The SandStorm Touch Football tournament opened the winter SandStorm competition for 2015. The Islamic College of Brisbane sent six teams to compete in this event, with odds of taking out the under 15 and open competition in both genders. We got off to a great start with wins for all our top girls teams. Both looked in-form and any cobwebs from not playing for a year were blown off. In thrilling fashion the open boys dominated their first game winning 6-3, with Bilal Tombuloglu scoring a hat trick in the opening game and inevitably becoming the top try scorer of the day.
