Australia Lifesaving Titles
In the last part of Term 1, Juna Hack and Fraser Balderas went to the Gold Coast at North Burleigh to compete in the Aussies Lifesaving Youth championships for Lorne SLSC. The Aussies are a huge step up for kids coming from Victoria, mixing it with those who train year round in huge clubs. Both really enjoyed the experience, and had lots of fun training and competing for 3 days in really tough conditions.
Fraser is a relative newcomer to surf sport competition and he swam and paddled hard the whole time and progressed really well over the weekend.
Juna made it into semi finals in his Ironman, and Board Relay Team (with fellow teammates – ex Lorne students Kai Enticott and Jasper Atkinson). To put that into context, that means top 32 in his age group in the country! He also made quarter finals in Board, and just missed out on progressing in Board Rescue and Cameron Relay.
A huge achievement by both, and a life changing experience.
On Wednesday 30th May, students from Yr. 7 – 11 travelled to Colac to compete at the Coastal Athletics Championships at the fabulous new Athletics facilities at Trinity College.
We had students competing in a range of athletics events against some very strong competition but our students were fantastic representatives of our school with some excellent results:
Will Van Maasdyk
2nd Long Jump
2nd Shot Put
Students who placed 1st have qualified for the Greater Western Athletics in Ballarat in Term 3. Good Luck!
