Australian Dragonboat Championships

Congratulations to one of our staff members, Julia Agar-Wilson, and three of our parents, Racheal Blake, Kathy Kimpton and Neill Blake, for competing in the Australian Dragon Boat Championships in Adelaide over the school holiday break.

Julia, Racheal and Kathy were selected for the Victorian State Senior A Team. Victoria came home with five Gold medals and one bronze. Of those the Senior A Team entered four events and won four Gold medals, and of those the women entered three events and won three Gold medals, making them Australian Champions.

Julia, Racheal and Kathy, along with Neill, also competed in the Australian Club Championships for Peninsula Dragonflys. Dragonflys reached the Grand Final in every event entered. Although they did not come home with medals, they pushed for photo finishes for placement. Dragonflys crossed the line in 4th, 6th and 7th place out of all the Australian clubs that attended the Championships.

An amazing performance!
