Brisbane Grammar has scored an historic double in the first division premierships of the Queensland Independent Schools competition.

Grammar, who broke through for the first title QIS flag last year, won the Year 8 and Year 10 grand finals at Coorparoo.

They beat Brisbane Boys College 6-7 (43) to 3-4 (22) in the Year 8 grand final, and got over the top of Nudgee College 7-13 (55) to 5-6 (36) in the Year 10 decider.

It was a coaching triumph for two well-known names in Queensland sport – the Year 10 side is coached by ex-Queensland coach and Brisbane Bears/St.Kilda AFL player Danny Craven, and the Year 8 side was coached by Mt.Gravatt QAFL coaching assistant Darren Holder.

In the Open division for the Jason Dunstall Cup, Churchie, former school of the former Hawthorn champion, beat BBC 5-5 (35) to 3-9 (27).

And in the Year 9 grand final Nudgee completed a most disappointing day for BBC, winning the flag decider 5.6 (36) to 2-4 (16) to leave College, for so long the premier school in the QIS competition, with an 0-3 record in first division grand finals this year.

The first division grand finals were the culmination of another hugely 20th anniversary season of the QIS competition.
