I am so proud of each and every one of them. What talented performers who so real grit and determination. We may have had a few nervous wobbles in our voluntary routines but they showed some beautiful form and execution of skills. They are a true team supporting each other and coaching staff at all times. Congratulations and keep it up girls…..you’re doing an amazing job!!
‘I am really proud of our team, our set routine would scored amazingly and would have placed us in second however we were not quite as polished in our Voluntary routine. These competitions are amazing experience and it is always good to see other talented sportsman from other school. Every competition is a learning curve.’
