As they prepare to compete at the Capricornia Trials, may their determination and skill lead them to further success, both on the track and beyond. We are all behind you…Go, Girls!

 

Interschool Rugby League


In a thrilling display of talent and determination, the Girls Grammar Open team has firmly secured its place at the top of the ladder in the Girls Interschool Rugby League Competition. With two wins and a draw under their belts, our girls are making waves in their debut year in the competition.


From the first kick off to the final whistle, the Girls Grammar team has showcased not only their exceptional skill but also their unwavering resolve to compete with the best teams from our district. Their performance on the field has been nothing short of inspiring, leaving spectators in awe and opponents in their wake.



This inaugural participation in the competition has proven to be a milestone for our school, highlighting the depth of talent and the commitment of our female athletes. With each match, our girls continue to raise the bar.


Let us unite in cheering on our Girls Grammar Open team as they strive for victory in the remaining matches of the season. May their passion for the game and their unyielding spirit propel them to even greater heights, solidifying their place as true champions on and off the field. Go, Girls Grammar!

 

Girls Grammar Sports Stars doing Big Things:

Queensland Netball Selection

Hard work and determination have paid off for Ellie-Mai Brandenburg being named in the Queensland Secondary Schools 16-19 Years Netball Team after her exceptional performance at the State Titles on the Sunshine Coast at the end of April.


Ellie-Mai, also a member of the Girls Grammar QISSN team, has worked exceptionally hard over the last 12 months developing her individual fitness and skills. She is a wonderful role model for younger students and gives back to our club netball program coaching junior teams.


While there isn’t a National Titles to represent her state, as a part of her selection, Ellie-Mai will participate in Queensland Training Camps and will have access to the best coaches and professional players in the state to further develop her skills. Well Done!

 

PNG Squad Selection

Ralema Genaia, another of the Girls Grammar QISSN team members, was selected in the PNG National U21 Netball Squad. Ralema participated in a selection camp in Port Moresby in an effort to gain final selection in the PNG team to attend the World Youth Games in September. We are eagerly awaiting the final team announcement in June. Good luck for final selections!
