QGSSSA Swimming – Wednesday 3 March 2020

In early March over 70 St Hilda’s students took part in the annual QGSSSA Swimming Competition. Overall, we were extremely pleased to finish 7th in the Aggregate Cup and 4th in the Sheena Dyason Percentage Cup. Even though we were not able to bring along a support crew, we were so proud that all the swimmers were encouraging and optimistic throughout the night. We would like to give a special mention to Tylah Crabtree for her phenomenal win in the 200 IM, to Tribeca Liu for her record-breaking swim in the 12 years 100m Freestyle, and to our amazing Open Brockway Cup Relay Team, consisting of Tylah Crabtree, Cyra Bender, Lulu Macleod and Isabella Lee who came away with an amazing 2nd place. Additionally, a huge congratulations goes out to all the girls for participating and putting their best efforts into their races.

The spirit and sportsmanship we witnessed on the night was truly amazing, and we were so proud of every single girl who competed. We have been so honoured this year to be captains of such an amazing team. We enjoyed every second of it and can’t wait to see the success of the QG swim team in years to come.

Ramsey Family Memorial Basketball Game

TEAM RESULT MVP – Opens MVP – Ramsey’s
Open Opens Win 30-20 Liliana Allen Miss Jayne Schinckel

On Friday 19 March our Opens Basketball team participated in the annual Ramsey game which hasn’t been won by the Student Team since 2011. The dry spell was broken and our Opens won 30-20. It was truly an honour to take out this win against the Ramsey family, who continue to uphold Sherilee Ramsey’s love for the sport during her time at St Hilda’s.

All our girls felt privileged to be a part of this game and enjoyed every second of it. Now that the girls have a taste for the win, they are hungry to maintain this winning streak in the coming years. A shout out must go out to Liliana Allen who had an awesome game with outstanding perimeter shooting.
