Win­ning ath­letes pay trib­ute to coach

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

ATH­LETES from Penrhos Col­lege were proud to ded­i­cate their re­cent Cham­pion School tro­phy to the school’s long-serv­ing ath­let­ics coach.

Af­ter win­ning the col­lege’s 22nd Cham­pion School tro­phy in 23 years, the ath­letes paid trib­ute to Nobert Fandry.

Prin­ci­pal Meg Melville said Nobert had suc­cess­fully com­bined fun with train­ing and com­pe­ti­tion, which had con­trib­uted to the high skill level of the stu­dents in his 27 years at the school.

“Nobert has raised the sport­ing skill level of the stu­dents, their com­pet­i­tive spirit and ul­ti­mately the suc­cess of the col­lege in ath­let­ics, cross coun­try and swimming to a level be­yond com­pare,” she said.

“Penrhos has en­joyed a rep­u­ta­tion as a sport­ing pow­er­house in these pur­suits, largely due to Nor­bert’s tire­less com­mit­ment to bring­ing out the best in each girl through his coach­ing, men­tor­ing and pas­sion for health and fit­ness.”

The girls suc­cess­fully de­fended their ti­tle as cham­pi­ons at the In­de­pen­dent Girls Schools Sports As­so­ci­a­tion Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val, also tak­ing home the Lau­rie Pack­ham Tro­phy for Cham­pion Track School and the El­iz­a­beth Davenport Tro­phy for Cham­pion Field School.

Year 12 ath­let­ics cap­tains Madelline Shaw and Annabel Robin­son with coach Nor­bert Fandry.
