The award is a State-wide schools-based competition acknowledging outstanding achievement in both school sport participation and success in competitions.

The criteria are involvement and success in local zone sport, State championships, knockout competitions and interstate representation.

Tenison Woods achieved six State and/or State country titles in netball, basketball, football and cricket during 2018 while also coming runner-up in soccer.

High Performance Sports Program head coach and Yr 8-12 sports coordinator Ciaran Buckley said a silver medal for the U/17 girls at the national schools basketball tournament during December was a highlight.

Tenison Woods students were also representatives for South Australia in a variety of sporting State teams including netball, basketball, football, hockey, baseball, tetrathlon, swimming and cycling.

“We are looking forward to another exciting year in 2019 for our student-athletes as our motto SHINE will continue to encourage all students to achieve success both academically and in the sporting arena,” Mr Buckley said.
