PRES­BY­TE­RIAN Ladies’ Col­lege (PLC) has been crowned the 2016 In­de­pen­dent Girls’ School Sport­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (IGSSA) Over­all and Row­ing Cham­pi­ons.

The team won the ti­tle in a nail-bit­ing fi­nal against St Mary’s Angli­can School for Girls.

The col­lege has won five out of 11 over­all sports on of­fer in the In­de­pen­dents Girls’ School Sport­ing As­so­ci­a­tion this year and placed run­ner-up in three.

PLC prin­ci­pal Kate Had­wen thanked the stu­dents, staff and fam­ily for their sup­port.

“On top of an­other in­cred­i­ble Head of River row­ing suc­cess and our 30-year drought-break­ing IGSSA Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onship, 2016 has been a re­mark­able year for PLC on the sport­ing front,” she said.

PLC sports cap­tain Matilda Mor­fesse said it was a great achieve­ment for the school.

“There are so many peo­ple to thank for this achieve­ment. Thank you to the arts, mu­sic drama and dance de­part­ments who have sac­ri­ficed their time for us, thank you to the coaches and um­pires who ded­i­cated their time to us, and thank you to the par­ents,” she said.

“A win­ner makes the most out of every loss, and by do­ing so turns those losses into wins, and we have cer­tainly done that over the last three years.”
