Richmond Football Club players visit LHS

On Tuesday 12 June, the Year 9 ADP students were visited by 5 players from the Richmond Football Club.

Dion Prestia, Ivan Soldo, Tyson Stengle, Nathan Drummond and Pat Naish spoke to the students about their pathways into the AFL as well as significant hurdles they have faced and overcome on the path to reaching their goals.

The players then moved around the class, helping the students with their ADP Sports Nutrition CAT and sharing their knowledge on the topic as well as the nutrition practices and requirements at the elite level.

The students had the chance to ask some questions and made the most of this opportunity asking some very insightful questions about the players day to day activities, along with their training regimes in pre-season and throughout the year and the variation in their nutrition throughout the week and on game day.

It was a great opportunity for the ADP students to hear from some elite athletes and link the theory they are currently learning about into a real world situation.

Football – Eastern Metro Region Championships

Last week, the Year 8 Boys competed at the Eastern Metro Region Championship. In 2017, they won this competition and went on to play at the State Finals. Unfortunately, this year they weren’t able to replicate such success. With a team that was depleted by injuries, it was always going to be a hard day.

In our first game, Brock McDonald and Callum Toner both kicked two goals each to lead us to a great win over Vermont. However, if we were to progress through to the final, we needed to beat Mooroolbark College in our last game of the day.  Our boys gave absolutely everything they had, but unfortunately, fell short by 4 points.

Our best players on the day were; Connor Smith, Jye Peacock, Tyrone Best, Ky Dight, Mason Fregon and Riley Steer.

Thanks to the parents that came along to show their support on the day.

It’s fair to say, that the EIS Football Program will have some quality footballers in the years to come.
