IGSSA athletes achieving in the international sporting arena
The end of 2018 highlighted IGSSA athletes as international and domestic sporting leaders
Over the Christmas holidays you may have noticed a number of IGSSA old girls making headlines in the international sporting arena. For those of you who missed it, the Aussie cricket team put up a magnificent display against England taking Australia to their fourth World T20 title.
The women’s team features an amazing line up of athletes, including former Pymble student Elise Perry and former MLC student Alyssa Healy.
Perry also broke the record for most runs scored in a single season of the WBBL. Perry passed the previous high water mark of 560, set by Australian captain Meg Lanning while playing for the Melbourne Stars in WBBL|01, during her unbeaten knock of 80 from 54 deliveries. It took Perry just 12 matches to break the record, facing 438 balls in the process.
In the netball world, former St Catherine’s student Gabi Simpson captained Australia as they took out the quad series in England. Former SCEGGS school captain, Amy Parmenter was also announced in the NSW Giants netball team to compete in the Suncorp Super Netball Tournament in 2019.
