HORSHAM'S strong aerobics results this year continued at the weekend with seven teams placing in the top 10 at the Schoolaerobics Spring Challenge in Geelong.
The teams from Holy Trinity Lutheran School and St Brigid's College competed on Friday and Saturday respectively, with several impressive performances.
Holy Trinity's Energetix Six team drew on the experience of their third-place finish at the Schoolaerobics National Championships in Queensland earlier this year to finish second out of 16 in the open classification for their age group.
In addition to the nationals result and the second-place finish in Geelong, the team also won at the state championships.
Team coach Amanda Wik said it had been an outstanding year for the team, which only formed for the spring challenge last year.
"The nationals experience definitely helped them and they've come a long way from this time last year," she said.
"Twelve months ago they came fourth in the spring challenge and now they came second in a higher division.
"It was a really good day - really exhausting but very exciting and I'm really proud of all of them."
Lutheran's year four girls team finished ninth out of 14 teams in its division, while the St Brigid's Enerjets team came fourth in its division.
St Brigid's student Alaura McRae competed in the individual routine category and won a bronze medal.
Kailee O'Beirne and Aimee O'Callaghan also completed individual routines, finishing fifth and sixth respectively.
St Brigid's duo Bella Beddison and Felicity Fulcher competed in the pairs section and finished fourth.
Wik praised the efforts of all teams and individuals who competed on the day.
She said Horsham remained competitive against big Melbourne schools in aerobics.
