Primary girls undefeated for six years

Jindabyne Central School (JCS) has been crowned NSW primary school girls' snowsports champion for the sixth consecutive year, and picked up the matching boys title to add to the trophy collection.

The school's high school students were not far behind, with the older girls the runners up in the overall secondary point score at the state championships behind first-placed Snowy Mountains Grammar School (SMGS).

The JCS primary girls scored a whopping 100 points in the skiing overall point score at the NSW championships in Perisher last week - 32 points ahead of second placed Ascham School, in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

They came equal second in the snowboard overall point score to claim the title of Overall NSW Primary School Girls' Champion.

JCS boys finished third in the overall skiing point score behind The Scots College and Cranbrook Junior but went on to win the snowboard section and secure the Overall NSW Primary School Boys' Champion trophy.

The skiing component of the championships was made up of alpine giant slalom, moguls, skier cross, cross country freestyle and cross country relay while the snowboard section included boarder cross and giant slalom.

A total of 47 teams from JCS have qualified for the National Interschools Snowsports Championships in Mount Buller, Victoria next week.

One of the standout performers from the six-day event last week was Year 10 JCS student Adam Lambert, who completed the double win in the division two snowboard giant slalom and boarder cross.

Adam finished more than three seconds ahead of second-placed Alex Dickson from SMGS in the giant slalom and was exactly three seconds faster than silver medallist Liam Wood from Ulladulla High School in the boarder cross.

Adam, 15, hopes to now add an Australian title to his swag of medals when he competes in Mount Buller next week.

"I was really happy to place first in the two events at the NSW championships," he said.

"Now I'm looking forward to competing at nationals. I'd love to do as well there."

JCS had impressive results in the cross country events, with the team of Olivia Burke, Sienna Davies and Tamzyn Davies winning the division five freestyle and relay while Ella Burton, Ambrose Hansen and Jade Old won the division four freestyle.

In another event held at Perisher last week, Adam Lambert and his sister Sarah, 13, were crowned fastest male and female in the snowboard giant slalom at the Amelia McGuiness Memorial Time Trial.

Adam is a recipient of an Amelia McGuiness Australian Snowsports Development Foundation scholarship.
