Year 7 Students Become Touch Football Champions

Champion Girls Touch Football Team

Mishalene Turnbull and Delaney Ah Fook are Year 7 students at King's and also very talented Touch Football players. Earlier this year, they participated in an intensive three day trial with students from Touch Clubs across the Gold Coast, in the hope of being selected for the Gold Coast Under 12s Girls team. Mishalene and Delaney's exceptional skills saw both players successfully selected for the A Team, to represent the Gold Coast in the 2021 Junior tri-Series and Junior State Cup.

The girls began their training with the A Team in March this year, in preparation for the tri-series competition which ran throughout April - June. Following the team's success in the tri-series, they travelled to Hervey Bay in July for the two-day Junior State Cup. The team was undefeated throughout the very challenging competition, taking them through to the Grand Final where they won the State Cup and became the 12A State Champions! Congratulations Mischalene and Delaney - King's is very proud of your dedication and success!
