IGSSA PREMIER LEAGUE TENNIS was such a success in 2015, that Premier League Reserves will be added to the IGSSA program in 2016.

The Premier League and Reserves replaces IGSSA A and B Grade Tennis, and will be played at Pulteney Grammar School and Immanuel College on Monday afternoons, 4-6pm. The 4 best Tennis players at each of the 10 IGSSA schools will battle it out each Monday afternoon in the Premier League, with the next best 4 girls playing at the same venue as their League counterparts in the Premier League Reserves.

The remaining school Tennis players playing at the traditional Saturday morning timeslot.

With 8 outstanding nominations for this prestigious award, Immanuel’s Hannah Petty has been voted by the IGSSA Sports Coordinators as the 2015 IGSSA Sportsperson of the Year.

Hannah has had a remarkable 12 months of competition in her sport of Netball, culminating in her being selected for Australia’s Under 19 Netball squad. Hannah has participated strongly in IGSSA sport, being part of the Immanuel A grade IGSSA shield champions in each of the years she was in the team. Hannah beat a strong field of nominations, in a very close count.

Other nominations in 2015 were: Abbey Flight (Pembroke – Soccer), Krista Ceplite (St Peters – Swimming), Mary Wilson Scotch – Netball), Michaela Spano (Seymour – Hockey), Tarnie Shinnick (Walford – Netball), Georgie Bradley (Westminster – Softball/Netball/Athletics), Hannah Lehmann (Wilderness – Basketball).

IGSSA Life membership has grown to 44 people, with the induction of 2 more people at this year's IGSSA Presentation Dinner. These 2 individuals collectively have provided over 40 years of service to Independent Girls school sport in South Australia, and are very worthy recipients of this prestigious honour. This year's inductees are: Sue Hill (Immanuel) and Jenny Cheesman (Westminster)

Immanuel have won the Helen Reid Trophy as the champion IGSSA Athletics school in 2015, by the smallest margin in IGSSA history (it is believed). Just 2 points! Westminster came in 2nd place, and St Peters 3rd, just a further 11 points back. On a tremendous day of competition, Melarn Murphy from Wilderness took home the 100m Championship race in 12.90 seconds. Four new records were set by Rose Pittman (U14 400m), Livvy Carney (Open Pole Vault), Sarah Eckel (U16 800m) and Sophie Eckel (Open 3000m). Other trophies on the day went to Pembroke in the Open Girls Relay and Westminster in the Field Events.
