Recognising the victorious Maitland Grossmann High School senior football team who took out the NSW Combined High Schools State Cup.
Today I recognise the victorious Maitland Grossmann High School senior football team who, for the first time, took out the New South Wales Combined High Schools State Cup, which is the premier football competition in the State for secondary schools.
I am really proud of their achievement. The victory demonstrates the brilliant football talent and skills of the students at Maitland Grossmann High School. Their path to victory saw them triumph over a number of competitive teams, including teams from Crestwood, Castle Hill, Oatley, Lambton, Callaghan, Muswellbrook and Cessnock.
This is a fantastic achievement from a group of exceptionally talented young men, their coach, their school and their families who supported them on this journey. Special mention must go to captain Jayden Ziernek, vice-captain James Harkin, and Blake Roy who was named player of the series.
