Chloe starred for the Riverina debating team that travelled to Sydney last week for the state championships.

Riverina won five of six debates, defeating Sydney in the semi finals before winning the war of words against North Coast in the final.

Chloe debated alongside Darby Savage from Kooringal High School (Wagga) and James Mitchell-Hill from Albury High School.

Ten regions and 45 schools in NSW were represented at the Sydney championships.

Chloe was originally a member of the Finley High School team, coached by Aileen Begbie, which won the zone final before overcoming Wagga High School in the regional quarter finals.

Finley lost the semi final to Kooringal High School in a split decision, however Chloe was selected for the Riverina team.

The last time Riverina won a State Championship was 1982.

The school community is very proud of Chloe’s outstanding achievement.
