Our aerobics team has taken a massive hop, skip, straddle jump and high kick towards the 2016 National Championships after a stunning performance in the opening state series event.
Better known as 'Active Crew', the SEHS girls claimed first place for their category in the preliminary finals, which were held at Westminster School, Marion, on Saturday, May 21st.
After a gruelling two-month training regime, which included the learning of an extremely complex routine, they pulled out all the stops to produce their best-ever performance in front of hundreds of spectators.
It is a remarkable achievement for Active Crew, which is led by coaches Hayley Weston and Jess Sage, as the 10-member team has no less than six new faces among the ranks this year.
"All their hard work, sweat and tears finally paid off when the girls took to the stage and produced a gold medal routine," said Ms Weston. "They did a fantastic job.
"It has been amazing to see them develop their skills since the beginning of the year and, with three Year 8s, two Year 9s and a Year 10 joining our more experienced senior girls, we are very excited about the future.
"Everyone at Salisbury East High School is extremely proud of them and we all now look forward to the state finals next month."
The finals will take place at Norwood Town Hall on Saturday, June 25th, and another top performance could see Active Crew heading to the Gold Coast for the National Championships in August.
Meanwhile, Georgia McInerney, while competing for her aerobics club, produced an amazing solo routine that also took her one step closer to the National Championships.
The team, which is pictured below, is: Year 12 - Kaitlyn Weidner; Year 11 - Ashleigh O'Hara, Angela Philp, Amber North; Year 10 - Taylor Walsh; Year 9 - Zara Grobler, Tahlia Grammatopoulos; Year 8 - Taylor Matiscsak, Georgia McInerney, Brooke Wilkins.
