The 2019 Inter-schools Ski and Snowboarding Competition
Last week a number of our talented skiers and snowboarders competed at the 2019 Australian Interschools Snowsports Championships that were held at Mt Buller, Victoria. A few days after winning gold in the 14 Years Boys High Jumps at the NSWCHSS Athletics, Oskar Oxenbury showed his versatility and skills by winning a bronze medal in the Division 3 Snowboard Grand Slalom and then placing eigth in the Snowboard Cross. Competing as a team, Chloe Antilla and Lucah Hubbard placed fourth in the Snowboard Cross and fifth in the Snowboard GS. Jack-Albert Buman placed fourth in the Division 2 Snowboard GS and then teamed up with Morgan Lloyd to finish ninth in the Division 2 Snowboard Cross. Aiesha Stevill and Summer Ibbotson teamed up to place fourth in the division 3 Snowboard Cross. These were overall outstanding results from the Cronulla High Snowsports team.
Previous to this the 2019 inter-schools ski and snowboarding competition was held at Perisher valley in the first week of the school holidays. We experienced some varied conditions and students competed from early morning and into the night under lights.
All our students did us so very proud competing with vigor and enthusiasm and not least a great Cronulla High spirit of sportsmanship.
The competitions are teams events but also cater for individual competitors of all abilities.
We had some spectacular result leading to many medals and invitations to the next level of competitions to also be held at Perisher in August.
Cronulla High School also achieved a trophy for the champion Co-Ed snowboarding High school at the regional competition!
Many thanks also go to the many parents who supported, assisted and volunteered during the events.
Any enquiries should be directed to Mr Colliss who co-ordinates the teams.
