Cora achieves Top 5 at Nationals

​Seven of our girls made it through state championships after a long season on the snow. The nationals were held in Mt. Buller last week, at race venues regarded as much more difficult than previously raced at both regional and state competitions.
Cora McCloskey continued her run of top performances against the very best in the country by placing 5th in Boarder Cross and 6th in GS. Cora has established herself as one of the most consistent performers in the country.
We had Division 3 teams in each of the disciplines of Alpine, Skier Cross and Moguls. They came up against some intense competition, and achieved very credible top 20 results.
Well done to Saskia Ferster, April O Neill, Francesca Heyko-Porbeski, Mia Clark and Amelia Staines for representing St Catherine's with such dedication and courage! A special thank you to the parents once again for their tireless work and commitment.
