Emily Nobbs, one of our Year 8 students, has been at the Gold Coast for the last week competing in the National Christian School Games for swimming. She flew there with the 250 students in the NSW team, and has been training, competing and supporting her team-mates in other sports such as basketball, tennis and soccer. The Swimming Championships were held at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre, which has just been renovated for the 2017 Commonwealth Games.
Emily’s results in the girls’ 14-years events:
- Silver in 200m Individual Medley
- Bronze in 50m Butterfly
- Gold in 50m Breaststroke
- Gold in 4x50m Medley Relay (she swam breaststroke)
- Gold in 4x50m Freestyle Relay
The NSW team won the swimming, closely followed by Queensland.
We are so proud of Emily, and the hard work she has put into her training and preparation for this special event.
