In week 5 of this term Jarrad and Owen played in the Southern Valley District football team in the SAPSASA State Carnival. The week competition was held at West Beach and involved a 9 game competition. To be selected in the Southern Valley team we had to go to trials and we were lucky enough to be selected in the team. Our district was in division 3 and we got to play against 9 other districts, we were able to get a few wins, a draw and a few loses for the week. It was a great experience for both of us and we recommend other boys next year to go try out and hopefully we can have more Woodend students selected in the district team. It is a long and tiring week and we loved every minute of it.
