Despite the competition schedule being disrupted due to COVID-19, we still managed to have a successful 2020 on the pitch.

CAS Senior Girls – ACC Champions
Our Senior Girls Football Team became ACC Champions, reaching the grand final and defeating Seton College 5-0. The team defeated all teams in the Northern Zone at the ACC Championship earlier in the year, so competed in the final with Seton, the winners of the Southern Zone competition.

7/8 SSWA Junior Boys
In Term 4, our Junior Boys Football Team competed in the School Sport WA Champion Schools Competition, and reached the State Final after winning the Top Tier North Division: They won all of their games against Mercy College, Woodvale Secondary College and Ashdale Secondary College to set up the final against John Curtin College. Our team unfortunately lost on penalties after a great team performance to come from two goals behind to draw 2-2 and take the game to extra time. As coaches we were impressed with the resilience and strong mentality of the group.
