Success on horseback

Haileybury’s Equestrian team recently competed at the Tintern Horse Trials. This is the only interschool eventing competition and so it attracts students from all over the state. Haileybury had seven riders competing in the Trials — two of the riders competed on two different horses.

Out of more than 30 teams, Haileybury’s Gold and Hearts teams finished in second and fourth place respectively in the overall team rankings. Some of the many highlights included:

Avril Charman (Year 10) placed first while Madeleine Leonard (Year 8) and Conar Sipthorpe-Foster (Year 7) placed second.

Avril has also just qualified for the Melbourne International 3-Day Event in June.

Congratulations to the entire team and their coaches.

Slam Dunk for Charlie Dunn

Charlie Dunn (OH 2022) currently plays basketball for Virginia Tech Hokies. Her team will play against Louisiana State University (LSU) for a place in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Division 1 Women’s Championships.

Charlie is in her first year of college as a freshman and won silver with the Australian U19 Women’s team.

It is an incredible achievement to make the top four in the NCAA and we wish her the best.
