Of late we have had some great results and personal achievements from our students.
WRAS – We have received confirmation from the Western Region Academy of Sport that Anna McHugh (golf) and Emily Watts (triathlon) have gained selection in the talented athlete programs for 2015. Congratulations girls.
Cricket – Two of our boys have been playing representative cricket on Sundays this season.
Patrick Harris has gained selection in the Mitchell 16s cricket team and will play this weekend in the Western Inter council cricket matches which doubles up as the Western Zone cricket team selections. Oliver Simpson has also been playing representative cricket Oliver scored the winning runs for Bathurst in a nail biting win against Lachlan (Parkes & Forbes) on the weekend.
Rowing – Ashleigh Brooking again attended a rowing Regatta on Saturday (Iron Core) wearing the Scots colours. Ashleigh won the Year 11 girls 1500m race and has recently been moved up into the C Grade ranks.
Karate – Giamia Radice returned to Australia at the end of last week after attending the WKO 8th World Championships for Karate in Curitiba, Brazil. Giamia did outstandingly well winning Gold in Kata (Karate Forms) and Weapons in the 17 Year girls Brown belt division. She also won a Silver medal (winning 3 fights and contentiously losing just 1). She placed 3rd overall in the Open division. Giamia’s Australian team (Polletts) won 16 gold medals. Giamia returned home in time to compete again where she was announced as the Australasian 17s Champion (she has done this 5 years in a row). Her results at this tournament included gold medals in Kata, Weapons, Juijitsu, Sumo and points sparring. The results at this tournament have resulted in Giamia qualifying for the World Championships (ISKA) in Florida, 2015.
