A Clean Sweep

23/08/2013

Winning one of the Bronco’s elite schoolboys competitions is a task in itself with determination, focus and discipline often trumped by injury, fate and the bounce of the ball, making  Keebra Park’s  win in all four age groups in 2013 even more remarkable and a feat unlikely to be replicated anytime soon. These wins are also a diagnostic that the effort and discipline shown by the boys both on the field and in the classroom are creating a culture that produces results at the highest level.

The Open A’s notched up the first competition win when they took out the Alan Langer trophy in late June with wins over elite Brisbane rugby league schools  Wavell and Marsden  and a comprehensive victory over Gold Coast  rivals Palm Beach Currumbin, shortly followed by the Opens seconds who also bumped off PBC in the Gee Shield.

The under 13’s and under 14’s then successfully contested the Renouf Shield and Hancock Cup with  wins over Coombabah SHS and the under 15’s capped off the sweep with a textbook display of running football against a highly regarded PBC side. That all three of these oppositions were stacked with Qld and South Coast representative talent, is further  testimony to the hard work and dedication shown by the Keebra boys and highlights the magnitude of the achievement.

As we go to press the Open A team have progressed to the National semi-final of the GIO Schoolboy’s Cup after beating both Kirwan SHS from Townsville and St Brendan’s College from Yeppoon and will face Illawarra sports High from Wollongong at Pizzey Park on the 10th September for a spot in the National final.
