Scotch College Surfing teams Triumph in Schools Metro Round

Imagine a pair of Finals – Junior and Senior Surfing. Imagine two teams in each final – eight boys in coloured rashies out in the water. Judges marking every wave. Usually four schools wait with baited breath for the two winners to emerge. Except, wait, in both finals, both teams are from Scotch College! Yes – this year both surfing finals were Scotch first vs Scotch second teams! No need to say who won, nor that Scotch College won the overall school trophy for the day. Very well done lads!! Best of luck in the State Finals – you earned your places and a huge thanks to the dedicated parents also!

State Surfing Finals

Elliot Young (Year 12, Cameron) and Charlie Castleden (Year 11, Stuart) went out to Margaret River Senior High in the quarter finals (the eventual winners).

Archie Frazer (Year 10, Ferguson) and Jack Mickle (Year 8, Andrew) got into the semis and lost to Margaret River team 2.

All did very well to get so far in the state final. Charlie Castleden has independently made the state team and will go to Nationals in December. Archie Frazer is apparently only one place away from a similar honour (ie 5th in the state).
