Results – 2016 Swans Primary All Schools

The Swans Primary All Schools tournament was held in Dalby yesterday with 27 teams from Toowoomba, Dalby, Chinchilla, Roma, Kingaroy and Tambo participating in the Boys, Girls and Mixed divisions. The weather was fantastic and the Touch played by all teams was just as good. Well done to all of the participants and congratulations to the following teams on winning their division: 

  • Boys – St Mary’s College (2)
  • Girls – The Glennie School (1)
  • Mixed – St Thomas More’s 

SWQ Touch would like to thank the teachers and coaches for giving the kids the opportunity to play at this event and special mention goes to Nicole Green who brought her team all the way from Tambo – a 7 hour drive one way. We would also like to thank the referees who once again did a great job and a big thank you to Dalby Touch for allowing us to use their facility.

The full results for each of the divisions can be found in the following document:
