Week 2 Shout Outs!

Congratulations to Paige Sinnamon who competed on Sunday 22 April at the Equestrian Australia ANZAC Show. Paige won all of her Interschool events representing St. Hilda’s, qualifying her to represent the School later in the year at State Titles! She also won her classes to represent QLD at Southern Stars next year. We have numerous girls, led by our Equestrian Captain Gracie Stone, competing at Interschool events and preparing for the upcoming State titles. Well done, ladies! (and loyal equines).

We are very excited to have St Hilda’s very first synchronized swimmer, Kiera Gazzard as one of our St Hilda’s Sporting Girls!

Kiera is in the National Synchronized Swim team and has competed both as an individual/duo and a team in Japan this April. She has also been selected to attend a camp at the AIS in May/June before flying to Los Angeles and then she jets off to Budapest in July. We look forward to hearing about your competitions Kiera and wish you the very best of luck!

Congratulations to Momo Ito and Brianna Free who over the holidays competed in the 2018 Australian Youth Surf Life Saving Championships. Momo placed 12th in the swim out of 240 people, and 4th in the South Coast Branch. Brianna Free also competed in a range of events. Due to an injury at training shortly before the Championships, Brie had to pull out of some events as she didn’t feel that she was at her best (understandably so when you’ve had stitches). Love your attitude and determination Brie and we wish you all the best with your training to compete at World Titles in November/December.

Outstanding performances at the recent National Swimming Championships in Sydney. We are so proud of you girls!

This week we played against St Margaret’s. It was a tough game and although we lost we all tried our best. It was our first game back after the holidays and we are all excited to keep training and improving as a team. While everyone tried their hardest, special mention goes to Bella who had many breakthroughs and a few shots at goal, as well as to Emily Cook who defended really well The Junior team played a really good game despite their loss.

Last Friday was the first away game for the touch football season! A big congratulations must go to all of the coaches for and to the Open, Senior A, 8B and 7B teams who all won their games. All of the teams showed great sportsmanship and teamwork throughout their games. There are many upcoming games for the girls including Wednesday the 2 May which is an away game against Somerville House and Friday 4 May against St Peter’s Lutheran College at home. We have no doubt that the girls will try their hardest and come away with some great wins.
