MOUNT Eliza North Primary School student Ella Seaburgh will compete in the School Sport Australia Championship as part of the 11 to 19 years and under Victorian team in Queensland in September.
The 12-year-old participated in a structured trial process to be selected for the aquathon/triathlon.
She is dedicated to her sport, competing as a nipper every summer at Mornington Life Saving Club, training in open swimming, boarding and beach running.
During winter she continues with her swimming (in the pool) and running and plays netball and football.
Ella is hoping to raise around $2000 for the trip, which includes host state competition fees, insurance, team photo and administration charges.
School Sport Victoria and the Australian Sports Foundation has provided team members with a tax-deductible crowd funding platform at asf.org.au/our-athletes
