Top Interschools Results - Won national titles in Ski Cross and Alpine a number of times throughout my years at school

Why did you like about competing in Interschools?

Interschools ignited my passion for ski racing. From when I started competing in year 1 to my final years of school, my love for skiing continued to grow. Ski racing, in general, is an incredibly harsh sport and I am thankful for my years competing in Interschools as the highs and lows of it all taught me some valuable lessons that I continue to reflect and learn upon today. I'm also incredibly competitive by nature and Interchools provided an incredible outlet for all that energy.

Why did you like about competing in Interschools?

I loved competing in Interschools because it introduced me to competitive snowsports. I enjoyed skiing with my friends from school and making new friends from other schools. I love the atmosphere of Interschools and the excitement of competing as a team in an individual based sporting community. As it shifts the focus from individually winning.
