Hale School students showcased their skill and determination throughout the 2023/24 PSA summer sport season with some outstanding results in all sports.

Over 1200 boys proudly donned the double blue and represented the School over the season, embodying the well-known Hale spirit of dedication and sportsmanship.

The Hale rowing shed enjoyed an exceptional season with the 1st VIII being crowned the 2024 Head of the River Champions for the 22nd time since 1914. The last time a Hale crew won the famous 2km race was in 2018.

Our rowers performed admirably over the season and were strong favourites, along with last year’s victors, Trinity College, in the lead up to the Head of the River regatta. The Hale crew led from the start of the race with Trinity right behind them, matching them for every push. The last 500m was a true test of mental strength and as the stroke rate increased it became a real battle. The Hale crew made a final push whilst Christ Church appeared out of nowhere and came home hard, but the boys in double blue held strong and took the win by just half a length. An impressive victory!

The 1st V basketball team also took out the season, winning the Blackwood Trophy in impressive style. It was the team’s second premiership in three seasons and the 12th in the School’s history. Under the exemplary leadership of Captain of Basketball, Ben Williams and Vice-Captain, Brady Foster, the boys exhibited remarkable skill, dedication and sportsmanship throughout the season.

Looking towards the future, 40 Hale students will embark on a basketball tour of the USA at the end of the year.

As our young athletes across all codes and levels continue to develop their skills and forge ahead on their sporting journey, they embody the spirit of mateship that has defined Hale School sport for generations.
