The Marist College Walkathon for 2011
proved to be a great success. We were
blessed with a clear, warm and sunny day,
perfect for walking.
The day began with an opening interview
with Olympian and Old Boy Simon
Thompson (1995), before the first running
group set off around the lake. There were
many costumes, mascots and good luck
charms around to brighten up the day.
These included a spandex tuxedo, one
over-excited dog and the classic “Walk-a-

cooperation of the students was exemplary,

Congratulations to all boys who competed in another successful Marist
The Marist Athletics team was once again victorious at the
annual ASC athletics carnival held at Australian Institute
of Sport on the 27th of September. In a closely contested
competition with Canberra Grammar School the boys held on
to a narrow victory.
With a large number of athletes absent due to other school
and sporting commitments, this was the most impressive
performance in recent years. The squad was well led by
Captain Michael Sellers and his senior team who ensured all
possible events were contested to achieve maximum point
scoring opportunities throughout the day.
Special mention must go to our small group of under 15
athletes, who with 6 students, managed to compete in 29

The 2011 Season was another fantastic year of Australian Football at Marist
with teams competing in all age groups from U10 to U18. Well done to all
involved. Five of our seven competition teams made it into the finals and
the U14 Div I and Div II Royal teams made it to the Junior League grand
finals. Congratulations to the U14 Div II Royal team and coaches, Premiers
The First XVIII made it through to the last week and played in their fourth
consecutive grand final but were beaten on the day. Well done to the First
XVIII team and coaches for a fantastic year and another Grand Final finish, it
was great to see you step up from the early losses to be such a competitive
team, your best really was great football to watch.
The Marist ALF Club also hosted at Lindwall Oval two days of School Sports
Association National Carnival (U15 and U12) and the AFL Canberra Junior
Grand Finals for U12 and U14. It was fantastic to have these two significant
events at Lindwall Oval and to see so many people turn up to support AFL,
a testament the great facilities we enjoy at Marist.
The 2011 annual dinner was a great success with over 120 guests at the
Eastlake Club at Kingston. Guests included members of the 1986 First XVIII
Premiership team, on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the club’s first
AFL Premiership. Members present included the team’s coach and club life
member Mr Mark Winchester and fellow club life member and the team
manager Mr Denis Heritage and his wife Helen. Denis bought along with
him the 1986 team photo, a list of all players and details of all games played
that year, it was great to catch with them, share the stories and compare
then and now.
At the dinner we inducted a new life member, Mr Chris Toogood, in thanks
for his service to the club for many, many, hours over many years. Chris
started with the club back in 2001 and has served the club well in a large
number of roles over the years including coaching teams, organising
interstate events, yearbook editor & publisher, sponsor, committee
member, director of coaching and club VP.
Thanks to all involved in AFL at Marist, for a great year!
