Roseville College Snowsports Team, comprising 33 girls in Year 1 to Year 12, has ended its 2016 year with its strongest results yet.

The 2016 Interschools Snowsports season is now compete, with Roseville's team achieving its best results ever in the competition.

Roseville College won the Secondary Overall Female Pointscore and Secondary Female Snowboard Championship in the Northern NSW Interschools Championships held in Thredbo in July. It was the second year in a row that the College has won both titles. The team also placed 3rd in the Secondary Overall Skiing Pointscore.

12 members of the Roseville College Snowsports team qualified for the Suburu NSW State Interschools Championships in Thredbo in  August, where they placed 3rd overall in the Female Overall Pointscore.

As a result of the strong State Championship performances, eight Roseville College competitors qualified for, and progressed, to the Australian Interschools Championships in Perisher in September. This is our largest team yet at this level of competition. With superb performances by Sarah Leatherbarrow, Monique Leadbitter, Isobel Macdonald, Lara Nievergelt and Emily Vos, Roseville College placed 12th overall in the female category.

Roseville College Snowsports Coordinator, Mrs Suzi Litchfield, says the spectacular results were due to a real team effort and consistent hard work that girls put into their training. She says girls competed in five events: Alpine GS, Moguls, Ski Cross, Snowboard GS and Snowboard Cross.
