Metricon Stadium once again hosted the Associated Private Schools’ AFL competition Grand Finals this year on Friday afternoon.

Eight Gold Coast private schools compete in the APS program which is the region’s biggest school sporting competition. 

SUNS players Jacob Dawson (AFL) and Taylor Smith (AFLW) presented the best on ground medals for the senior boys and senior girls finals.

Smith awarded the medal created in her name – as a former APS student herself from Coomera – while Dawson awarded the Nick Riewoldt medal for the senior boys.

In total, six Grand Finals were played on the day across both male and female divisions – Junior, Intermediate and Senior teams.

This was the second year the APS Grand Finals were hosted at Metricon Stadium after first being held at the venue in 2018.
