An active year for local Physical teams
The Jerilderie Physical Culture Club has had a very successful first year.
Both the ladies and girls’ teams have travelled throughout the year to Sydney and Mudgee to compete against other girls across the state, and brought home a swag of medals.
The group recently travelled to Sydney to compete in the Champion Girl and Teams competition.
Ruby Neessen, Georgia Belling, Jessica Wilkinson, Mia Neessen, Katelyn Wilkinson and Chelsea Winn combined with girls from the Coleambally Physie Club to enter teams.
Ruby Neessen’s 7/8 year team came third place.
Later in the afternoon Katelyn Wilkinson and Chelsea Winn competed in the Champion Girl competition.
Both girls went up against girls who have been doing physie for more than six years and they were very strong.
Chelsea Winn was awarded the Dance Award.
Ladies team members Nicole Wilkinson, Carolyn Kent and Tiffany Sutton joined with other ladies to form a Jerilderie Elementary Ladies team, who came third against some very tough competition.
The ladies also competed in Champion Lady which saw Carolyn Kent progress to the finals.
The group would like to thank their sponsors for their support during the year, and look forward to the season starting up again in February 2019.
The Jerilderie Red Cross Big Bake Cake Stall last Friday raised $500 for drought relief.
Thanks have been expressed to all who supported the stall with baking and donations.
Michelle Moloney won first prize in the raffle. A lady from Narrandera passing through town won second prize, and Lucy Sweeney won third prize.
Tickets were drawn by former Jerilderie ambulance paramedic Alister McGregor, who also spent the day catching up with old friends.
