Student Success in Equestrian
On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 July, Laura-Grace and Sophie Nicholls competed in the Queensland Interschool State Championships for combined training and One Day Eventing. All riders competing for a spot on the Queensland State Interschool Equestrian Team to compete at Nationals in September 2017.
Laura-Grace managed to get some great showjumping rounds and was clear on both horses for cross country. Her best result was in the Intro One Day Eventing where she placed 7th and narrowly missed a place on the Queensland Team by one spot! Sophie managed to come out on top and was Queensland State Champion for Primary Pre-Intro One Day Eventing, Reserve Champion for Primary Combined Training 60cm and 4th for Primary Combined Training 80cm. This has now gained her two places on the Queensland State Team for Combined Training and she is off to Nationals representing both Queensland and St John’s Anglican College.
Congratulations girls, St John’s is very proud.
