HORSHAM Calisthenics College students have been successful at competitions in Melbourne and Ballarat.
The college’s intermediate and senior teams competed at the Calisthenics Victoria State Championships.
The sub-junior and junior teams competed at the Royal South Street Society competition in Ballarat on Tuesday.
Principal coach Kylie Hermans said both competitions saw the culmination of a year of hard work by the students.
“These were our most important competitions of the year,” she said.
“I am so proud with how all the students worked. They all tried their best and we had some excellent results.”
The intermediate team came first in the aesthetics section, second in the free-arm section, third in the rods section and received honourable mentions in the march, clubs and revue sections.
“We were against teams from Melbourne which we had not competed against before,” Mrs Hermans said.
“The girls received a place in every item and I am so proud of them.”
She said it was the first year the senior team had competed at the state championships.
“They were fantastic in their first state championships,” she said.
The team came second in march, clubs and aesthetics, received an honourable mention for free-arm and a highly commended for rods.
Both the intermediates and seniors finished third overall. Mrs Hermans said the college was now looking forward to its annual concert on November 3.
