Snowsports National Champions
Crowned the champion Senior Girls School and Junior Girls School at the Australian Interschool Snowsports Championship
Congratulations to a number of students who competed in the Snowsports program this year. Our girls were crowned the champion Senior Girls School and Junior Girls School at the Australian Interschool Snowsports Championship at Mt Buller. This was a phenomenal achievement for the girls, each competing with great determination with a fulfilling sense of team spirit, unified with their new pale blue uniforms. Particular congratulations must go to our individual medallist’s Amelia Maisano who placed first individually in the Division 3 Alpine event, Emma Kent who placed second in the XC Classic event and BoarderX event, Amelia Jones who placed first in the Alpine and SkierX event and third in the XC Classic event, Emily McAllister who placed second in the XC Classic Event and Julia Kent who placed third in the XC Classic event.
The Junior School won the Overall Primary Girls Division by an incredible 78 points and the Senior School won the Overall Senior Girls Division by 38 points. This was described by many as ‘punching well above our weight’. The success of the Snowsports team falls on the back of a strong running and fitness culture at St Catherine’s. The regular commitment to Junior Joggers, Cross Country and weekly Boot Camp sessions ensured the girls were fit, strong and fast going into the Snowsports season. Congratulations girls.
