RMIT Team Manager Eliza Goulding was delighted to once again win the Spirit Award.

“It has come as a real surprise to us because we didn’t think it would be possible two years in

a row,” Eliza said.

“It’s something we have really been working on,” she said.

“We are lucky that we have a good group of students that just get it, they come for the right reasons, they come to play sport but they also come to have a really fun time, make lots of

friends and make the most of the experience.”

RMIT Team Captain and health student Tyson Lingham was equally as elated.

“We have put in so much hard work for this,” Tyson said.

“We have focused on building the team values and morals so when students start in their first year it can just keep getting passed on and on and on,” he said.

“It’s amazing to see other universities noticing how much we care about it because developing a great team culture is really important to us.”
