December Showdown

Talia won the 16s singles at the December Showdown Australian Championships. She also won the 18s doubles with partner Annerly Poulos. Tara came 19th in the 12s singles which is an improved performance from previous nationals, and taught Tate some interesting dance steps along the way! Korbin won his first match then had some learning experiences and came in around 30th which is a very decent first nationals appearance. Derianne won her second match and finished around 40th out of 64 in what was a good learning experience for her. It was a very good trip all round and we look forward to making use of what was learned for the future. Well done to all who competed and thanks to the family memb

Crystal’s outstanding junior career saw her receive many full scholarship offers from division 1 and division 2 universities but after careful consideration all parties mutually decided on Harding
