Our Aerobics teams had a successful day at the FISAF (Federation of International Sport Aerobics & Fitness) Schools Stream National Championships which were held at the Sleeman Sports Complex on Saturday 11th August.
Over 650 school students from around Australia competed in the Championships. Ormiston College fielded five teams, three pairs and two individuals across the Primary and Secondary categories.
In the Primary category, Kayla Risson (Year 5) received the gold medal, making her the national champion in the Individual category.Kayla also received a bronze medal, along with Stephanie Martin, in the Pairs competition. The Diamonds team (Years 2/3) made the finals where they came sixth and Kara Cooper and Amelia Risson (Year 2) came ninth in the Pairs category.
The teams had some success as well with both the Terrific 10 and the Fantabulous 5 teams coming away with silver medals. Extreme 8 came tenth after making it through the Semi-Final and into the Final.
In the Secondary competition, Year 8 students Cassandra Martin and Sahara Surman came fourth in the Pairs category while Annabel Lee (Year 9) came fourth in the Individual category.
Ormiston College placed second in the Overall School Result (to Lourdes Hill College) by two points. This result was tabulated throughout the day based on each school’s results from each category.
The girls have been training since February, and the official season ended with this competition. The girls should be very proud of their achievements. Their hard work and determination certainly resulted in some great achievements.
