We have been improving on all divisions even on girls overall score we got more medals and we made more points than last year.
It shows we are working on the right way, but it is a long journey to be one of the giants in Australia, and we will work hard for that happens in the future.
Thanks for all the crew who made it possible, who competed and who didn’t but helped the team during training sessions, everybody was very important for the final result.
Thank you very much coaches Bernard Jenkins, Daniel Cherubin, Mick Moloney, Jim Reid and Brad Lowe.
