CSSA Rocket League eSports Tournament
Last week 33 students from BCC played in the inaugural NSW CSSA Rocket League eSports competition. It’s been disappointing to have no sport for the 2nd half of this year, so NSW CSSA arranged the next best thing. An eSports competition.
Rocket League is essentially a soccer game, but you drive cars to kick the ball. 8 Primary teams from BCC, made up of 3 players each from Years 3-6, logged on to compete against 20 other teams from around the state. Once the technical processes were worked through, the players competed in a round robin, before the Top 16 qualified for the Finals. Incredibly 6 of the 8 teams qualified for the finals, however that’s where things got difficult for our teams. Belmont Red (Jordan Steffner, Joshua Foskett, Connor Mullen) and Belmont Yellow (Lachlan Thorpe, Joshua Dalgety, Luke Dalgety) won through to the quarter finals but were unable to go further.
On Friday, we had 3 Secondary teams play in the Secondary comp, with a huge 47 teams involved. Once again, the competition was fierce, and our teams performed well. The Belmont Battlers (Ethan Farthing, Nicholas Goldsworthy, Colby Robins) won through to Elimination Finals but were controversially unable to get past the first round. The Belmont Strugglers (Owen Irvine, Hugh Brindley, Tom McHugh) stayed in the chat group, helping create friendly games, and encouraging the banter, which won them a major prize at the end of the day for their involvement.
A bit of competition, no broken controllers, and a lot of fun for those that played!
Sport Event Cancellations
As many of you will be aware NSWCIS, NSWPSSA & NSW All Schools Sports Championships for Term 4 2021 have been cancelled. Therefore I’m sure it will come as no surprise that all CSSA State Sporting events in Term 4 have also been CANCELLED.
This also flows down to THACCCSA Zone Events and they too have been CANCELLED.
We understand the disappointment that may follow this announcement, however, as always, the health, safety and wellbeing of all members of the College community was at the heart of these decisions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate this challenging time. We look forward to hopefully returning to a full calendar of sport in 2022.
