This was an immense achievement from the team, as during the Nationals the girls were also in the middle of their Mock exams and were busy balancing their schoolwork and sport. Grateful thanks to the academic staff for their continued support of the sporting girls. The extra work by the teachers to help all our sports girls achieve academically as well as in their sports is acknowledged and appreciated!
