Our exceptional sporting program at Lowther Hall develops expert skill and understanding in over 25 different sports with teaching and guidance from over 35 coaches and teaching staff. This dedication to sport is generating impressive results from students who are flourishing and excelling in their respective arenas – some at national champion level!
We would like to highlight some of the exceptional sporting results our students are achieving:
Maddison Caulfield (Year 11) is now the Under 18 Australian Junior Champion in both the 800m and 1500m after competing in the Australian Junior Track & Field Championships in Western Australia. Look out for her in an upcoming article in the Moonee Valley Leader Newspaper (with a link to be provided on our website). You can watch a video of her 800m win and interview at the Championships here, and her 1500m win here.
Hayley Jenkins (Year 8) was selected recently for the Victorian State Track Cycling Team to compete in the National Junior Track Titles in Launceston. She is currently ranked 7th in Australia for time trial and sprint disciplines, and 8th in Australia for individual pursuit.
Annie Cox (Year 10) competed in the February Australian Open Water National Championships in Mooloolaba. Annie swam the 5km Open Water event placing 7th in Australia and 1st in Victoria for the 14 years age group.
Ria Thompson (Class of 2015) is now the new Under 21 Australian Rowing Single Scull champion – you can view a link to a news article about Ria’s achievements here.
Finally, the Championship GSV Carnival for Swimming was held last week at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre. Our Junior and Intermediate swim teams (Years 7-10) took out 1st place overall in their Division!
Congratulations to all on these exceptional achievements, we look forward to celebrating further sporting success to come.
