State Swimming Carnival
It was difficult to think of a scenario where we could exceed the results of our zone swimming carnival, but on Thursday 22 April, we did that! Our zone champions headed off to MSAC to put their speed in the pool up against the very best from the state of Victoria. The results, in order of events, were as follows;
George H- 50m breaststroke – Silver medal
Riley O – 50m breaststroke – 6th place
George H – 50m butterfly – STATE CHAMPION
Tolly N – 50m butterfly – 6th place
George H – 50m freestyle – STATE CHAMPION
Aleisha C – 50m backstroke – STATE CHAMPION
George H – 50m backstroke – STATE CHAMPION
Jon W, George H, Austin H, Jake N, – Medley relay – Bronze medal
Riley O – 200m – 6th place
George H, Austin H, Hyuga W, Seth S – 50m freestyle relay – Silver medal
4 golds, 2 silvers and a bronze. A golden day for the great swimmers here at MWSC!!
A special mention to Aleisha C (7H) on being a State Champion in the 12/13 girls backstroke, and to George H (8K), who won an incredible 3 events and is now a State Champion in butterfly, freestyle and backstroke. These types of victories are never achieved on skill alone. The dedication all these students put into their swimming is a credit to them as individuals, and we are lucky to have you all as students here at MWSC!!!
Congratulations to all!
