Sacred Heart Girls place top 10 in Surf Boat Nationals

Congratulations to The Badgers, who are an Under-19 womens Surfboat Racing crew in their second year of competing. The team is made up of current and ex SHC students - Meg Davies year 12, Darienne Reid year 11, Ella O'Hanlon year 11, Remony Reid 2020 SHC graduate, Julia O'Hanlon 2020 SHC graduate. Sweep/Coach is Patrick Spinazolla. They compete for Torquay Surf Life Saving Club.

Last weekend the team travelled to Mollymook NSW for 4 days to compete in the ASRL(Australian Surf Boat Rowers League) National Open Competition. They made the semi finals and placed top 10 in Australia for Under-19 women.

They are currently training for State Titles in Lorne end of the Month and going to Australian Titles / Aussies in Alexander Headlands QLD at the end of April. They train 4 times a week in the boat in the surf as well as attending school and university. They also work and hours of volunteer Life Saving Patrols at Torquay Surf Club.

It is a gutsy, powerful and strong sport for women to compete in. The girls are great friends, with two sets of sisters in the team and all currently attending or having attended Sacred Heart.

Good luck to The Badgers!
