Little Nippers Champs

UNDER 8 GIRLS

U8 girls flags — Gold Medal­ist and State Champ — Han­nah Wol­marans had a lit­tle bit of luck in the 3rd semi and then smashed them to take the gold, it was amaz­ing to watch.

U8 girls sprints — Dar­cie Ben­nett made the final

U8 girls swim — Rebekah Hendy made the final

U8 girls board — Jas­mine Thomp­son 4th, Ada Heaton 7th and Sky­lar White­head 9th

All our girls made it through the first round with a lot pro­gress­ing through to the semi finals in every event. With more than 100 girls com­pet­ing, this is such a fan­tas­tic effort.

UNDER 8 BOYS

U8 boys flags — Nathaniel Leeks was our best com­peti­tor mak­ing the top 8, falling just short of mak­ing the finals. James Lee made the top 16

U8 boys sprints — James Fair­head took out 5th place against some real­ly quick com­peti­tors.

U8 boys swim — Ryan Cavanagh placed 13th

U8 boys board — Ryan Cavanagh 7th and James Lee 13th

Again there were 96 com­peti­tors in the boys and it was such a mas­sive achieve­ment for all of them.

For all our nip­pers it was a huge day and such a great car­ni­val, some absolute­ly out­stand­ing sin­gle achieve­ments and the sup­port shown for each oth­er was a great rep­re­sen­ta­tion of our club.

Spe­cial men­tion to Jack Colan­ge­lo who showed a nev­er give up atti­tude in the flags after miss­ing the start and almost fought his way back into mak­ing the next round, well done Jack you are a win­ner in my eyes.

UNDER  9’s

The Under 9’s had an awe­some day at Sor­ren­to for the state cham­pi­onships on Sun­day! We had some real­ly great results and the Mul­laloo com­radery was absolute­ly won­der­ful to see with all the kids cheer­ing on the kids who had pro­gressed to the next heats.

Mov­ing for­ward next year we will need to get some­one to record the detailed results, because as AGM I’m always too busy rac­ing around like a head­less chook with boards and loads of kids etc. Please feel free to let me know more results, but from mem­o­ry Zariya Yearn got 7th in the final of sprints, Ben Chad­der­ton got 8th in the final for boards with Liam Bar­row­clough get­ting a Bronze Medal, he was about 3 board lengths ahead in his semi final of the sec­ond place pad­dler but he got blocked out at the cans in his final and almost snuck around to snatch 2nd. He killed it in the swim and is the under 9 State Cham­pi­on with a Gold Medal.

All the kids did so well and we are all super proud of their efforts. This was the first car­ni­val this year where heats and semi­fi­nals were run so kids had to com­pete 2, 3 or 4 times in each event to make it to the final. As the kids move up to under 10’s next year, this is how all our car­ni­vals will run.
