School team in state cham­pi­onship

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Holy Trin­ity Lutheran Col­lege’s En­er­getix team has qual­i­fied for state aer­o­bics cham­pi­onship fi­nals af­ter per­form­ing strongly at Gee­long’s Cen­te­nary Hall.

The 10-girl team, made up of stu­dents from years four, five and six, will now test them­selves against the state’s best aer­o­bics out­fits, again in Gee­long, on June 3.

If the team wins at Vic­to­rian cham­pi­onships it will progress to na­tional ti­tles in Queens­land in Au­gust.

En­er­getix, coached by for­mer aer­o­bics cham­pion Amanda Wik of Hor­sham, had to achieve a base score to qual­ify for the ti­tles, which meant high lev­els of un­cer­tainty as well as anx­i­ety sur­rounded the at­tempt.

But Mrs Wik said the team per­formed strongly and chalked up a qual­i­fy­ing score of 78.8100.

“It was a tough gig but the girls did an ex­cep­tional rou­tine. We were so proud, they just blew us all away,” she said. “All those hours of train­ing for a two-minute rou­tine paid off.”

En­er­getix has been train­ing for sev­eral months with ses­sions in­ten­si­fy­ing in the past cou­ple of weeks.
