This year Distance Education Centre Victoria had one competitor, Isabella Boffa of Year 7, compete in the Victorian Interschool Snowsports competition. The competition took place at Mt Buller from Monday 21st – Sunday 27th August.

Isabella competed in five events and this year for the first time she was in Division 3, meaning she competed with students in a higher age group than in previous years.

Isabella’s results were outstanding she placed 2nd in Skier Cross, 7th in the Alpine Giant Slalom against 200 competitors in her division, 12th in Snowboard Cross, 13th in Snowboard Giant Slalom and 28th in the Moguls.

These amazing results ensure that she will proceed to the Australian National event next week in four out of her 5 events, as the top 15 competitors move onto the National event.

DECV wishes Isabella all the best in the National competition this week.
