Highlights from 2021 were:
Open Girls Netball Team in 2021
WBHS Open Girls Netball team progressed to the top 4 in the Hunter Region in Netball. The girls went down to Merewether High School in the finals. This was a close and very competitive match and unfortunately WBHS lost the game in the dying minutes. This is the best result for the WBHS Open Girls Netball team in the past 4 years. The girls displayed a high level of sportspersonship, outstanding skill and teamwork to reach the quarter finals.
Each player of this team played with exceptional skills and talent and where unlucky to progress. To finish in the Top 4 of the Hunter Region is a commendable effort.
Open Boys Basketball
WBHS Open Boys Basketball made it to the quarter finals of the Hunter region. These boys progressed to the final where they played against Hunter Sports High School in an evenly matched competition. Unfortunately, the boys went down and lost in the final quarter to finish second. Due to their high level of sportsmanship, skill and ability these boys gained a "wild card" entry to the state championship in Sydney. The boys did extremely well and finished 6th in the state.
In June WBHS took 6 teams to Raymond Terrace to compete in the Hunter Oz Tag Gala Day. Students from Years 7-12 competed in several games throughout the day displaying outstanding skills. The Year 9/10 boys team made it to the semi-final on the day but unfortunately lost.
Both the boys Year 7/8 and girls Year 7/8 team won the grand final on the day. Both games were very close and went into extra time and drop off. Both teams were headed to Sydney to compete at the state title but unfortunately this competition was cancelled for the year.
Open Boys Rugby League
The Warners Bay Opens Boys Rugby League team progressed from the Regional Hunter competition to travel north to Coffs Harbour to play in the state University Shield competition where they played Toormina High School and won convincingly against a predominately Year 12 cohort. The boys continued to represent Warners Bay High School with pride and respect, both on and off the field. The boys progressed to the next stage of the NSWCHS Rugby League knockout finals but unfortunately this competition was cancelled.
WBHS is traditionally a strong swimming school with outstanding athletes in all age groups. Unfortunately, due to the change in the school structure of having 2 staff development days at the beginning of the year we were unable to secure a venue for the swimming carnival prior to the zone carnival. As a result, the school ran a competitive only carnival for those students wishing to proceed.
State CHS Swimming
This year we had nearly 30 students represent WBHS at the CHS state swimming. A massive congratulations to all our amazing swimmers. Some of the outstanding swimming results that students have shared with us include:
2nd place for our All Age Boys Relay (Billy H, Nic G, Jordan G, Koby H, Nathan L,and Josh R)
2nd place for the 15's Boys Relay (Koby H, Noah B, Jack D, and Caleb R)
3rd place for the Opens Medley (KobyH, Noah B, Josh R, and Nic G)
The annual WBHS school athletics carnival was held on 29th April at Glendale Sports Centre. The weather was perfect and there was plenty of sun to shine on all our athletes. There were some stand-outs on the day with Ruby I showcasing her flair for athletics particularly in long distance running. We had some exceptional speed in our 100m races with some very fast times in both our male and female competitors.
Every student who attended on the day had plenty of fun with almost every student taking part in the novelty events representing their house.
