Adam Yoon & Ben NguyenPerfect running conditions welcomed several of our students, teachers and other Homebush associates to this year’s City to Surf. Beginning at Hyde Park in Sydney’s CBD, the young men (some not so young) ran the 14km track to the iconic Bondi Beach.

There was a bit of worry at the start for some as the bag drop off time came and went, leaving some runners with a handful of gear, rather than having it stowed safely in the back of a truck to be transported to Bondi for pick up at the finish. This was soon rectified and the nervous lads waited for the start.

Down William Street, past the Coke sign and over to the coast, 85000 humans made their way to Bondi in an effort to beat their best time or establish a bench mark for later years. At the 6km mark, Heartbreak Hill loomed. For over 1km the crowd climbs up wards before the course flattens out. However, with legs hurting from this major climb, the organisers placed several smaller hills between the runners and the finish.

Wednesday morning started as usual for most students but for the First Grade Football team it started very early, and it was to be a day filled with excitement and anticipation. Coach Mr Scott Belgre had organised the Knock-Out semi-final against Albury for the all-weather astro-turf pitch at Seymour Shaw stadium in the Sutherland Shire so the team and supporters met Mr Khurshed and Mr Carrozza at the school bus at 7AM.

The game kicked off at 8.45AM and after the first half the score was 0-0. Deserved praise went to the Albury goal keeper who had made at least two extraordinary saves. But the second half went to Homebush and when Nathan Carter scored after 20 minutes of play our defence reamined rock-solid and we closed out the match. A well deserved 1-0 win over a spirited but sporting opposition.

Mr Belgre was quoted as saying that the "team played a well-structured but expansive game and even under pressure they maintained their shape. I am looking forward to the final and believe I have the boys that could go all the way".
