HORSHAM Calisthenics College’s intermediate team came away with a silver trophy at the Calisthenics Victoria state championships in Melbourne at the weekend.
Principal coach Kylie Hermans said it was an outstanding achievement.
“This is our biggest competition for the year and I’m extremely proud of all the girls,” she said.
“They have worked so hard and they have continued to improve from one competition to the next.”
Mrs Hermans said the girls competed against other teams from Melbourne.
The team came first in the freearm section, second in the aesthetics and revue sections and received an honourable mention in the rods section.
Mrs Hermans said the team competed in Melbourne a week after competing at Warrnambool.
She said all college teams posted good results at the Warrnambool Eisteddfod.
“Both the intermediate and senior teams won their competition, and the junior and sub-junior teams also had great results,” she said.
Solo results saw Alana Hermans place first in the intermediate graceful solo and receive a highly commended in the intermediate calisthenics solo.
Lauren Walter placed first in the senior graceful solo, while Neve Lawson came first in the junior graceful solo.
Esther Craig was second in the intermediate graceful solo and in the intermediate calisthenics solo.
Georgia Hoskins received an honourable mention in the senior graceful solo, Kathryn Op de Coul received a highly commended in the intermediate calisthenics solo and Rochelle Ough received an honourable mention in the 12 years and under graceful solo.
Mrs Hermans said all teams would now prepare for the annual Horsham calisthenics competition on August 23 and 24.
