Sports achievements on the court and track

Congratulations to a number of IGS students who are achieving recognition, resilience and fitness.

Chloe Katerdjian of Year 11 recently returned from Bathurst after being successfully selected for the NSW All Schools State tennis team to play for the Pizzey Cup at the National High Schools Tennis tournament in Adelaide in May.

The two strenuous days involved a series of pool matches and playoffs in order to arrive at the teams of eight girls and eight boys.

Chloe will also compete in the School Sport Australia singles Tennis Championships, the highest possible level for school representation in tennis; an amazing achievement. Congratulations Chloe, and best of luck for your upcoming matches!

Ryan Kitchin of Year 11 also played tennis in Bathurst last week, competing fiercely to represent IGS in the sport. We’re proud of you, Ryan!

Meanwhile, Year 7 students endured a gruelling cardio tennis session, with the goal to achieve the maximum number of steps in one session. Working up a sweat, they achieved a colossal 10,576 steps!
