2. Daria Oleynichenko
3. Kristina Oleynichenko
4. Liza (Eliza) Getmanskaya
5. Gloria Amah
6. Emma Gutierrez
7. Yasmin Suleimenova

The girls worked extremely hard to prepare for they climb. They trained for months by climbing the stairs in residence and those on Hamilton’s Chedoke trail.

Thank you to Ms. Simpson for climbing with the girls and thank you to Ms. Mahaffey for her support during training and the climb.

Congratulations to all those who participated!
