Girls Grammar Students Shine in a Variety of Sports

Queensland Pathways Rowing

Georgia attended the QLD Pathways rowing camp in Brisbane from 12 - 14 April. This was a fantastic opportunity and offered invaluable training before heading to Penrith NSW for the Australian underage selection regatta on the 26 - 28 April. All the Queensland rowers came together to practice in the 8 sweep boats, developing their teamwork and race strategies prior to the regatta. It was an invaluable experience being able to work with the best rowers in the state. Without many opportunities to row sweep in our region, Georgia gained a wealth of knowledge and really enjoyed the experience.

Australian Age Swimming Championships

A massive congratulations goes to Girls Grammar swimmer Saphron who competed at the Australian Age Swimming Championships over the holidays. It's an amazing achievement to be selected to compete at such a high level, but to make the A Final is even more remarkable. Saphron placed 9th in the final of the 50m butterfly, making her the 9th fastest 16 year old butterfly swimmer in the country. It was a nerve racking race as there was only about 1 metre separating all swimmers at the finish. Well done Saphron, all those early morning training sessions are definitely paying off.

Interschool Show Jumping

Late in Term 1, Francesca Dooley proudly competed for Rockhampton Girls Grammar in the Interschool Capricornia Regional Competition for show jumping, where she was awarded Reserve Champion for Secondary 80cm. Congratulations Fran.

Cross Country Results

With a night of storms and heavy rain causing some last minute repairs to the track, we were worried that we wouldn’t be ready to start on time. A minor delay to the first race saw the rest of the 2023 Interhouse Cross Country going off without a hitch.

It was a beautiful day and house war cries could be heard right across The Range as our girls showed what Girls Grammar spirit is all about.

There were some quick 1km times recorded with students vying for the coveted Polywonga Lap. This award goes to the student that runs the fastest first lap from all races throughout the day. Taking out this award for the second year was Year 10 student Bria Goldman in 4:02, just missing her record set last year of 3.98.

Williams took out the Champion House award earning back to back wins with Swimming Carnival as they racked up 387 points. Downs had a small but mighty team on the day and worked hard to get 2nd place on 363 points. Smith (347) and Paterson (329) had big numbers in attendance but were very social competitors taking out 3rd and 4th respectively. In a very hard decision, the House Spirit award was given to Paterson for their support, encouragement and cheering on the day, narrowly beating out Smith for this honour.

The Age Champions will be awarded their medallions on assembly next week. Congratulations to the following girls on their achievements:
