High Jump to Success

October 2019

The National Skipping Championships have reaped huge rewards for our students with a record number qualifying for the World Championships, the Junior World Championships and the International Open to be held in Ottawa, Canada in July 2020.

This year SGCS sent twenty-eight skippers to the National Skipping Championships in Canberra during October where they collectively competed in more than fifty-six events on an individual level and in pairs and teams. 

Mrs Karen Binns, SGCS Jump Rope Coordinator said:

We have an incredible community of skippers, a great group of Senior School mentors and a very dedicated family support network. Without this collective group we could not be as successful as we are. As you will see in the results below, our skippers punch above their weight. I am super proud of our skippers with both their successes and the way in which they handle their disappointments; and there were many of both throughout the competition.

When asked about the highlights of the competition, Mrs Binns was quick to point out the following:  

For the past ten years two clubs have dominated the 15+ Mixed Double Dutch Single Freestyle. This year, these Clubs were named second and third. A deathly quiet descended on the stadium as both competitors and spectators waited for the announcement of the name of the winning team. When St George was announced as the gold medalists and the new Australian Champions for this event, the stadium erupted with a cheer. It took our skippers several minutes to overcome their disbelief and celebrate their victory.

Mrs Binns admitted that the win and her skippers’ reaction “brought tears to her eyes” and that she “will treasure the moment always”. She also acknowledged the “outstanding spirit of sportsmanship and mutual congratulations from the other teams”. 

The team members for the 15+ Mixed Double Dutch Single Freestyle event were Lucy Yeung (Year 11), Tom Norman (Year 12) and Nathan Chang (Alumni).

Mrs Binns also singled out the extraordinary efforts of Christian Maskito (Year 10) who overcame pain and injury to take the Australian title for Masters Male 12-14 Champion.

The Jump Rope team of supporters also featured in Mrs Binns’ highlights:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff who have encouraged and prayed for our team. I appreciate your words of encouragement and the interest that you show. Thank you also to our faithful and dedicated parents, Kris McDougall, Rachel Norman, Michelle Rigby, Ann Madden, Katy Moylan and Jody Clayton who attend training, undertake coaching and assist me with the administration of our team. I could not do this without you.

Our congratulations to the wonderful Mrs Binns, our Jump Rope students and their parents for all their hard work in achieving these exceptional results.
