Our team of 20 swimmers headed to Kardinia Pool to compete in the combined Bellarine and North Geelong Primary School Swimming Championships.
Overall, we had a fantastic day in rather hot conditions and we achieved some wonderful results.
Please read more for full details of results.
A few of the highlights included,
- our 11 year old Girls 4x50m Freestyle relay team, backing up from last year and placing 3rd, with Leisel’s brave effort to overcome a nasty ankle injury helping set up a great team effort,
- Alice placing 2nd in the 11 Girls 50m Butterfly,
- Max placing 4th in the Boys 12/13 50m Breastroke, and 6th in the 12/13 Boys 50m Freestyle,
- our 4x50m Medley team placing 5th, with three of the girls still being in Year 5,
- Mikayla placing 8th in the 11 Girls 50m Freestyle,
- Madi placing 6th in the 11 Girls 50m Backstroke,
- Luke placing 6th in the 11 Boys 50m Breastroke,
- and finally, Jessie placing 2nd in the Girls 9-13 Multi Class 50m Freestyle and then dazzling everyone with some serious celebrating!
Our team represented the school with distinction and the spontaneous joy they displayed when Jessie was awarded her ribbon was something that won’t be forgotten.
Almost all of our competitors posted times that were markedly quicker than their qualifying times from late last year, so they should all be proud of their efforts.
Finally, a huge thank you to the dedicated contingent of parents who helped transport the kids to the pool, volunteered their time to officiate on the day, and supported all of our swimmers.
