2020 Award Winners - Sport Awards

Swimming Award

Winner: Craig Pittson

Craig started the year strong, tying for Champion Boy at this year's House Swimming Carnival after a consistent performance across the day, including winning his Freestyle, Backstroke and Butterfly events, before forming an integral part of the O'Connor relay team. Because of these results, and his consistent commitment to training, he was named Vice Captain of the Swimming Team for 2020.

Craig then went on to represent the College at the Quad Meet where he swam in A division for most of his events. He performed well on the evening with a consistent performance. Unfortunately Craig did not get the chance to represent the school at the ACC in 2020.


Athletics Award

Winner: Alejandro Larranaga-Boyle

Alejandro wins this award for the third year in a row after finishing second overall in the House Athletics Carnival. This was followed up by a strong performance at the ACC Athletics Carnival, where he finished as runner up champion in his age group. Having finishing first in the 100m and achieving an ACC record in Javelin, throwing 51.65 metres, Alejandro is an extremely committed athlete and thoroughly deserves this honour.


Cross Country Award

Winner: Kale Arena

Kale was runner up in Year 8 in the House Cross Country this year. Kale competed in this year's ACC virtual Cross Country carnival event and won the Under 13 category, finishing his 4km run in 14.05 seconds - a full 8 seconds in front of his nearest competitor. Outstanding work, Kale.


Sport Service Award

Winner: Joe Elliot-Tideman

Joe has volunteered lots of his time and energy into the College's Surfing programme this year, going beyond simply attending each session to assist wherever possible to help make training and competition easier wherever possible for staff and students alike.

Joe most impressively took it upon himself to organise CBC's presence at both of this year's surfing competitions, completing the competition draws and much of the behind the scenes work to make the running of the days so much smoother for all involved.

This initiative and hard work is a great example for all involved with Sport at CBC to follow.


Junior Sportsman of the Year

Winner: Ky Hehir

Ky has represented the College outstandingly in a number of areas throughout the year. He started with a strong run at the House Cross Country Carnival, winning Champion Boy for Year 9.

He was also an integral part of the Athletics team, achieving Champion Boy at the House Carnival before becoming an integral part of the ACC team, where he finished as an All Star in the 400m and 4th overall in the Under 15 category.

Ky was also the captain of the Year 8/9 A division AFL team who took part in the Division 1 competition, and a key member of the Year 9 Basketball team, who were the divisional champions for the ACC South Carnival in 2020.

He has achieved to an extremely high standard across all these areas and should be pleased with his effort and dedication, all of which has paid off.


Senior Sportsman of the Year

Winner: Kelly Rawlings

Kelly has had a great year across a variety of areas. He began with a strong performance in the House Swimming Carnival, achieving runner up Champion Boy. His results were good enough to be selected in the ACC Virtual All Stars team as there was not an inter-school carnival. In Term 1 he also finished runner up at the House Cross Country Carnival with another strong performance.

As the year continued he represented the college the the First XVIII Football team and was also part of the Surfing team in Term 3.

He performed consistently well in the House Athletics Carnival, achieving champion in his age group and then went on to represent the College at the ACC Carnival in a number of events.

Overall Kelly has consistently given his best when representing CBC. He should be congratulated on his effort and achievements for the year.
