2019 ACS All Stars Presentations Wrap

The ACS Annual All Stars Presentation celebrates the best and fairest players from across our member schools in 17 different sports – including both weekly sport and our three major carnivals.

This year’s event, held at Loyola College’s Companion’s Hall in September, acknowledged the achievements of these students in addition to inducting three current and former students from ACS schools into our Hall of Fame.

We congratulate Tess Coady (a former St Michael’s student), on her accomplishments in Snowboarding, which include World championship titles and selection in Australia’s Winter Olympics Team. Current Overnewton students, Gianluca Iannucci and Montana Ham were also inducted into our Hall of Fame, for representation at a National level in Soccer and Australian Rules Football.

Our guest speaker was Don Elgin, an accomplished Paralympian and Author, who shared wonderful anecdotes about his life and outlined the importance of being grateful, remaining positive and always giving things a go. His energy, passion and a cheeky sense of humour was enjoyed by all, and we thank Don for his involvement on the day.

Photographic highlights accompanied our All Star athletes as they were presented with a certificate, badge and personalised sports card to commemorate their achievements. The ACS would like to congratulate all our All Stars, in addition to all the coaches and staff for their ongoing support and involvement throughout the year. A big thank you also to Loyola College for their hospitality and hosting duties – we look forward to celebrating our next All Stars in 2020.
