State Snowsports Championships

What a fantastic result at the 2017 NSW Interschool Snow Sports Championships.

After three days, PLC Sydney was sitting in first place overall. Stand out performances in the Snowboard events came from our Year 7 and Year 8 team of Paige and Tara Jones, Imogen Howell and Phoebe Glenn. Chelsey Johnson (Year 9), Xanthia Coote (Year 5) and Lilli Glenn (Year 11), Snow Sports team captain, also qualified as individuals for the National Championships. Special mention to first time racers, Halle Smith (Year 7) and Winona Dufrier (Year 11) on their race performances.

The Cross Country Ski events were also dominated by PLC Sydney with the Division 1, 2 and 4 teams not only qualifying for Nationals but receiving podium places.

The senior team of Karli Musarra (Year 11), Georgie Allan (Year 11) and Georgia Smith (Year 10) won gold in the Cross Country Freestyle event. Their Year 10 counterparts, Phoebe Cridland, Isabella Hutton and Chelsey won Bronze with Phoebe winning the overall silver medal.

Our junior skiers Dominique de Souza (Year 6), Alessandra Sydun-West (Year 5) and Xanthia placed 3rd overall. Congratulations also go to first time racers, Claudia McConnell (Year 11), Emily Lizzio (Year 11), Anastasia Watson (Year 5), Ella Figliuzzi (Year 5) and Stella Koulos (Year 5).

Junior skiers Dominique, Alessandra and Xanthia also qualified for Nationals in the Moguls event. Senior team members Emma Bosco (Year 9), Georgia Coote (Year 9) and Phoebe dominated the Moguls not only winning gold in the teams but also taking out 1st, 2nd and 3rd individually. Clare Bosco (Year 7) qualified in Moguls and the Slopestyle events. Team mate Talia Skuse (Year 8) narrowly missing out in the Slopestyle and Alpine events.

The highlight of the week was by far the participation of two transition class students in the Multiclass adaptive Snow Sports events. Eleanor Taylor (Year 10) and Lauren Webber (Year 11) represented PLC Sydney in their first ever Alpine Ski race. Both girls had a great day and walked away with a silver medal each.

We now wish our Snow Sports team all the best as they compete at Nationals this week at Mt Buller.
