PLC Sydney was well-represented at the IGSSA Water Polo trials last week. Congratulations to Carla Traplin in Year 9 (pictured) whose outstanding performance gained her a place on the team. Charlotte Wilson in Year 10 also demonstrated her skill in the pool, narrowly missing out on the highly contested goalkeeping position. The IGSSA team will compete at the NSWCIS on 9 November. We wish Carla all the best.
The 2015 IPSHA Carnival was very exciting with all our gymnasts performing at their best.
Our best artistic results came from our Levels 1 and 3 teams who both finished 3rd and our level 4 team who finished 4th. Our Level 5 gymnasts Lauren Thomas (Year 6) and Yasmine Sulyok (Year 5) competed extremely well with Lauren finishing 6th in Beam and 4th on Floor and Yasmine who finished 4th on Vault, 3rd on Bars and 1st on Beam.
In Rhythmic Gymnastics our best results came from our Category 2 group: Aerin Hayes (Year 5), Zoe Lee (Year 5), Madeline Chew (Year 5) and Charlotte Schiller (Year 6) who finished 3rd, and our Category 3 group: Emily Nielson (Year 6), Summer Wanless (Year 6), Athena Pendegast (Year 6) and Grace Sheng (Year 6) who won the competition.
Well done to all girls who participated. The coaches and I are very proud of your performances and the support you gave each other.
