Catherine McAuley College has the opportunity to right the wrongs of previous School Sport Victoria football campaigns when it takes on Essendon-Keilor College in the grand final in Melbourne on Wednesday.
CMC has played in three of the past four Premier League grand finals and lost all three - twice to Essendon-Keilor and last year the school was beaten by crosstown rival Bendigo Senior Secondary College.
"We've lost three of the past four, but most of this group didn't played in any of those finals,'' CMC coach Lee Coghlan said.
"This group is keen to create their own history. What's happened in the past won't affect us.
"We've got a group that's in really good form and everyone is playing their role. It's all leading to us, hopefully, putting in a really strong performance."
CMC enters the grand final on the back of a confidence-boosting 133-point thumping of Mornington in last week's semi-final.
Essendon-Keilor defeated Warrnambool's Emmanuel College by 27 points in the other semi.
CMC played Emmanuel College in the preliminary rounds and scored a 71-point victory.
"You can't really take too much notice of other results,'' Coghlan said.
"The league is really up and down in terms of which (NAB League) players are available.
"Essendon-Keilor will probably bring back their Calder Cannons players for the final...it should be a really high intensity game of footy."
On top of being crowned SSV premiers, the winner of Wednesday's game earns a semi-final berth in the most presitgious school football competition in Victoria the Herald-Sun Shield.
CMC won the Herald-Sun Shield title in 1992 when the school was known as Catholic College Bendigo.
"We've been so close to getting there, so we'd love to be in the same conversation as schools like St Pats Ballarat and St Bernard's,'' Coghlan said.
"It's been a while since the school has been in that competition."
CMC's grand final side to play Essendon-Keilor:
B: Jeremy Ellis, Blaze Houlden, Abe Sheahan
HB: Isaac Carracher Tanner Nally, Zack Shelton
C: Harrison Burke, Ben Worme, Cooper Smith
HF: James Mittell, Zac Featherby, Noah Walsh
