FOR the first time in Woodridge State High School history, the school had three teams from the one sport competing in a final series.

All three of the school's touch football teams competed in the Brisbane Metropolitan Grand Finals after cruising through the Logan District Premiership competition undefeated.

The Year 8, 9 and open girl teams all competed in the grand finals on Thursday, May 31 against Cavendish Road State High School.

The school managed to come away with one win under their belt, with the Year 9 side beating the Brisbane-based school six tries to one.

Unfortunately, the Year 8 side was defeated by three tries with an end score of seven tries to Cavendish Road and four to Woodridge.

The open girls were also unsuccessful with the end score being seven to five.

Woodridge State High School touch football coach Drew Millar said all the teams played extremely well.

"The girls played against all the other winning schools in the different districts," Mr Millar said.

"From the start of the year the girls have been training twice a week, once in the morning before school and one in the afternoon.

"They trained and worked really hard to get into the finals.

"I am really proud of their efforts and they are seeing positive results."

Senior girls captain Mary Yakuac said the school had achieved outstanding results.

"Touch football is a really fun game," Miss Yukuac said.

"We always work really hard and to see our results is excellent.

"All of the players, including the younger students, always play their best."
