Nikita Mawhirt represented WA at the Australian Cadet Fencing Championships this July.

Brothers Pierce and Kieran Pittaway have both been selected for the Athletics WA Team to compete in the Australian Cross Country Championships in Melbourne at the end of August.

La Salle sports coordinator Jodie Walsh said the school offered a variety of sports both within the curriculum and extracurricular programs.

�We have over 50 teams going out of the school in a variety of sports,� she said.

Ms Walsh said she was very proud of all the hard work the students put into their training.

�They are extremely talented at their chosen sports but that does come through training hard,� she said.

�A lot of these students train most days, usually with 1-2 days off a week.�

La Salle also has cheerleaders, orienteers, hockey players and little athletes competing at state and national levels.
