St Brigid's College aerobics teams off to Sydney

THREE St Brigid's College teams will compete in the National Schoolaerobics Championships in Sydney at the weekend.

Coach Amanda Wik said the college would send a group of 75 people, including students, parents and coaches to the event.

An Enerjets team consists of year seven and eight students, an Energisers team is made up of year nine and 10 students and year 11 students make up an Energetic Stars team.

The Energisers qualified to compete after winning the Schoolaerobics State Championships at Geelong in June.

The Energetic Stars placed second and the Enerjets finished third at the competition but both were invited to progress to the national championships.

Wik said all three teams were looking forward to competing on the national stage.

"They've worked really hard for this, giving up their own time at lunchtime, after school and on weekends to prepare," she said. "All I hope for is them to do their best. If we can bring home a medal, that would be great."

The Energetic Stars team has a track record of success.

The team had a stellar year in 2011, winning state and national championships in the stage one classic sections.

Wik said the team, which has lost two members from last year, would compete in the stage two classic section at the weekend.
