Hot Off The Press: Volleyball guys, Volleyball girls, Softball guys, Rugby, Floorball girls, Badminton guys, Harmonica, TennisApril 25th, 2011 by CCA PRO
It was an exciting Monday with many competitions taking place all around town. Let’s take a look at the results for today:
Today, the guys met AJC early in the morning for the first match of their quarter finals. They lost 29-31 in a closely fought first set, and 17-25 in the second set. There are still 2 more quarters this week for you guys to show that fighting spirit, and that magic we know you can bring on court. Jiayou.
Following the guys match, the girls played PJC and with much support from their guy counterparts, won 25-8, 25-11! Congratulations:)
The softballers trashed NJC, 11-1 today! Congratulations, and jiayou:)
The team met MI this afternoon, and having suffered defeats in the past couple of matches, it seemed that we had a chance at the beginning when we led strongly with a score of 6-0. Unfortunately, we lost this precious lead and eventually lost 6-10. Don’t let this get you down, guys.
In the opening match of the season, the floorball girls met heavyweights VJC, and lost 4-8. This is a good comeback for the girls, who lost by a scoreline of 1-8 against the same school last year, and threw off their opponents who were expecting an easy game. We believe that you girls will show strong performances in the next few matches of the group stages, so keep pressing on.
Also in the first match of their season, the team won JJC, 3-2! Nice start to the season, and keep achieving greater heights in the rest of the season.
In their SYF today, HC’s Harmonica Ensemble brought home the one and ONLY gold award of the competition! Congratulations to HC Harmonica, and check back for a detailed competition report soon:)
Also playing in the quarter finals today were the Tennis Boys and Girls. The Boys lost 2-3 to ACS(I) in a close fight, and certainly did not let their opponents have it easy. The Girls won convincingly 5-0 against SAJC. Well done! Both teams will be playing two more matches each on Wednesday and Friday, which will determine if they can continue on to the semis. Jiayou, and unleash the spark within you!
It is just the start of an exciting, and extremely crucial week for many CCAs as they enter the later stages of their respective competitions. Let’s rally behind our schoolmates, and give them our utmost support. HCunite!
Hot Off The Press: Squash (Boys), Soccer (Girls), Touch Rugby, Table Tennis, Water Polo (Boys), RugbyApril 6th, 2011 by CCA PRO
Wednesdays are always especially important days for our sports teams as many go out to meet their opponents, fighting their hardest for Hwa Chong. Let’s take a look at what went on around the island today:
The guys met NYJC today and eventually emerged the winners with an astounding score of 5-0! With their second win in tow, they look set for a strong season, and are a dominant force in the squash scene! Keep this up, guys!
Today, the soccer girls scored twice against NJC, and did not let them have a chance to get on the score sheet for all of 90 minutes! A score of 2-0 to HC is no mean feat. Jiayou for the upcoming matches!
Once again, the Touch Rugby girls proved that they should be feared on the pitch, winning 4-0 against MI! The match against NYJC was postponed to a later date due to weather circumstances. Let’s hope they continue their unbeaten run:)
Today, both the guys and girls teams met against RJ, an extremely strong opponent in the Table Tennis arena. Both teams fought with much grit and power, but eventually fell 1-4 for the guys, and 2-3 for the girls. However, we did not give them an easy time as seen by the slim score margins. This Friday, they will meet with RJ again in the semi-finals. We would like to appeal for supporters for this crucial match. Buses will be provided so please head down to support our players if you are free! More details will be given during tomorrow’s morning announcement. To both teams, keep fighting! We will always be supporting you!
Water Polo (Boys)
The boys team met ACJC today, and beat them with a score of 7-5! Nice one, guys!
The Rugby team met ACS(I) today, and unfortunately lost 0-65. However, do not let this get you down, guys, and keep pushing on! Be resilient and show your opponents what you’ve got:)
And this wraps up the matches played today. Amongst the wins and losses, one thing for sure is that the whole school is supporting our sportsmen and sportswomen! Jiayou, HC!
Our Rugby guys kicked off their season this year bright and early this Saturday morning against SAJC. Unfortunately, the boys were beaten 0-55. However, it is just the first game of the season and there are still many more matches to go! Jiayou, Rugby! The whole school is behind you so keep pressing on:) We believe in you!

The rugby boys went into the last match of the 1st round with nothing to lose and only honour and experience to gain. At the end of the day, the score was 31-3 to PJC, effectively ending the rugby boys’ campaign this year. Though we were the underdogs, it is safe to say that the rugby team has grown and bonded immensely throughout the season.
“It has been an honour to captain HC Rugby, and an awesome journey playing alongside this team.” - Russell Leong, Captain of HC Rugby 09-10

The Rugby boys ended the day with a 29-0 loss to CJC, with 5 tries and 2 conversions contributing to the scoreline. It’s okay, boys, we still have the PJC match, so let’s make it count! Do show all your support for our rugby team!
Hot Off the Press: Squash Boys Semifinals, Canoe, Tennis Boys, Basketball, Volleyball Boys, Soccer Boys, RugbyApril 23rd, 2010 by CCA PRO
As the schooling week comes to a close, our sports teams will no doubt wish to end a gruelling week on a high note, and these fixtures were a perfect avenue for appropriate venting. Alas, these guys did not disappoint as HC was propelled towards greater things after today.
Squash Boys SEMIFINALS
The boys’ squash team walked into the Kallang Squash Centre Court 2 with zero complacency, expecting a tense encounter with ACS(I). After the girls’ team’s loss at the hands of Raffles, their boys counterparts were even more determined to bring home the championship title. Our boys played with sheer will and composure, emerging victorious with a 4-1 win despite falling behind after the first match.
The lineup was as follows:
Ryn Wu 0-3
Darren Toh 3-0
Jason Ho 3-0
Alex Lim 3-0
Bryan Seow 3-0
Having gained entry into the finals, the squash team will give their 200% to be crowned champions. Do support the boys in every way you can in their most crucial fixture of the season!
Canoe [Dragon Boating]
Today, our canoeing team emerged NATIONAL CHAMPIONS for the A Division in the 10th National Schools’ Dragon Boat Championship 2010! This simply demonstrates HCanoe’s prowess in the canoeing scene this year, and possibly in the many years to come. What an amazing feat, guys! We’re immensely proud of you! Check out the Hall of Fame for their accolades!
The volleyball guys met Serangoon Junior College today and displayed tremendous skill by sweeping both sets easily with a score of 25-5, 25-3. Well done!

First match into the season and our basketball girls unleashed their merciless streak, showing who owned the court by scoring a whooping 96-5 against Yishun Junior College. Watch out, people, the game has only just started! Amazing feat accomplished by our girls today! You girls certainly can challenge the boys’ team’s records! (:
The basketball boys continued their spotless record with a 67-33 win over Temasek JC at the Singapore Basketball Centre today. The significant decrease in the point gap of the scoreline compared to previous matches can only mean that the season is heating up faster than we can imagine. Go boys! Continue to do us proud!
Having won their last group match against AJC, the ultimate progress of the team depended on AJC’s last match. Over the course of this week, the soccer team had their fingers crossed, duly hoping AJC would do HC a favour by winning their match by a goal. When news of the final score broke out, where AJC won 2-1, the soccer team could not have been happier this season. HC is proud of you for making it further than any previous team! Dominate that 2nd roun match, boys!
The HCI vs CJC match is again postponed due to heavy rain, this time to Monday, 26th April. Go boys!
The girls’ tennis team entertained JJC at the HC tennis courts this afternoon, and emerged victorious sweeping all sets with an overall score of 5-0! Well done, girls, you aced it!
The team’s next match will be away at NJC on the 27th of April, where a Bukit Timah derby awaits. Go HC Tennis!
