MPS pack a punch on the slopes

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

MANS­FIELD Pri­mary School was rep­re­sented by only a hand­ful of stu­dents at the re­cent Vic­to­rian In­ter­schools Snows­ports Cham­pi­onships, but as a group they punched above their weight in the huge com­pet­i­tive fields.

In Divi­sion Five, in her first com­pe­ti­tion, 10 year old Estelle O’Neil went through qual­i­fy­ing races to rank 14th from 112 starters to claim a place in two events at the na­tion­als which is be­ing held at Mt Buller this year.

Estelle’s par­ents, Ross O’Neill and Emma Shor­land, are well known ski­ing iden­ti­ties and it seems that their DNA has been passed on to Estelle.

IN THE BLOOD: Mans­field Pri­mary School’s Estelle O’Neill has com­peted strongly dur­ing the re­cent in­ter­schools on Mt Buller, earn­ing her a spot at na­tion­als.
