The Annual Interschool Touch competition was once again held at the Atherton International Club over eight weeks throughout Term 3.   Tableland schools including Malanda, Atherton, Mareeba High and St Stephens Catholic College participated across all secondary year levels in a competitive but friendly competition.   The senior division involved a combination of Year 10s, Year 11 and 12 mixed and Year 12 students representing each school.  The junior division incorporated mixed teams of Year 7 and 8 students and Year 9 students.  Each week the teams battled it out to eventually win a position into the finals.  Atherton High Year 12 mixed team won the grand final 10-6 against Mareeba. Their clinical execution in the final was reflective of an undefeated result all season with this win awarding back to back success two years in a row.  The Year 10 team narrowly defeated the 11s by one to take 3rd spot and bragging rights!  In the Junior division, our 9s came from behind to snatch victory in the dying moments from Mareeba 9-8.  Our 7/8s team gallantly were introduced to this competition this year, many of whom it was their first time playing and against students older than them.  The annual competition would not take place without the valuable time and effort volunteered by teachers, referees and the Atherton Touch Association.   All students are to be congratulated on their sportsmanship, enthusiasm and how they represented each of their schools.  A special thank you to teachers including Jack Finey, Siobhan Browne, Phil Kohlhardt, Rhys Brady, Helen Carne and Katina Davis and referees Rhys Brady, Leigh Freeman, Alan Camp, Helen Carne, Katina Davis, Tanya and Barry Dikes.  In addition a huge thank you to the Atherton touch association for the use of their equipment and facilities.  Each year they have supported the competition to promote the game but provide a great opportunity for schools to compete at a local level.
