High schools to settle grudge in Beef Week Challenge Cup

A "GRUDGE" match that started 12 years ago between two of the high schools in Casino will be fought out tomorrow as part of the Beef Week Challenge Cup.

Principals Neil Schneider of Casino High School and Aaron Beach of St Mary's Catholic College are ready to put it all on the line for their teams.

"The overall winning school will receive the shield for the year, presented by the losing principal at their next school assembly while dressed in the winning jersey," Mr Beach said.

Students will be playing netball, soccer and rugby league over the course of the day to see which school comes out on top.

"Soccer and netball will be at Colley Park from 2pm," Mr Schneider said.

"Then at the junior rugby league fields the U13s rugby league starts at 1.15pm, U15s at 2.35pm and the opens at 3.50pm."

Both principals agree the rivalry is friendly with many of the students from both schools playing together in teams in their weekend sport.

That won't stop Casino High School working very hard to ensure the shield comes to them this year.

"St Mary's have had it for the last three years," Mr Schneider said.
