The team prepares for NZ schools
The Australian Slalom Junior Development tour is in full swing in New Zealand. The team has recently competed in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Slalom Championships, and are today competing in the New Zealand Pre National Championships. Tomorrow will see the New Zealand National Championships, with all events held on the Tarawera River at Kawerau, on the North Island of New Zealand.
The highlights for the Australian team at the Secondary Schools Nationals included a clean sweep of the podium by the Australian C1W with Kate Eckhardt in 1st, Georgina Collin in 2nd and Isabella Choate in 3rd, with Demelza Wall taking out 6th place. The Canadian classes were clearly a strong point for the Auzzie girls, with Georgina Collin and Kate Eckhardt taking the win in the C2 women, and Isabella Choate and Demelza Wall following in 2nd. Billie Knell paddled bravely and came in 4th in the Junior C1 Women class.
Tristan Carter took 3rd place in the C1 Men class, with Rohan Borojevic narrowly missing out on a podium finish with a fourth place. Chris Fegan showed his quality by taking 2nd place in the Menâ€™s K1 class behind local Callum Gilbert.
