College Swimming Selection Carnival
On Tuesday 23 February we finally got the opportunity to run the revised College Swimming Selection Carnival. Sixty-two students registered for events across the six age groups and made their way down to Gosford Pool.

An overcast, windy, and chilly day confronted our swimmers. What the carnival lacked in atmosphere, the boys certainly made up for  with their competitive spirit and behaviour on the day. Some fantastic racing took place with several very close heats testing the video replay, which amounted to several discussions from the judges and timekeepers before the results were awarded.

The following Age Champions were crowned on the day:

Age Group Age Champion House
Under 12 Cooper Smith Knights
Under 13 Tahj Regattieri Shanahan
Under 14 Archie Carpenter Doolan
Under 15 Ashton Walters Knights
Under 16 Jayden Redfern Doolan
Opens Daniel McLoughlin Doolan

The modified program allowed us some flexibility with the events we ran on the day. Instead of the usual house relays, we decided to run an all-age relay for each House and a ‘Champions of Champions Race’ that was handicapped for each of our 50 m Freestyle Age Group Champions.

While the conditions did not lend themselves to breaking records, the competition between the House Groups was very close. The final outcome saw Doolan (White) being crowned Champions for 2021 in a very close result over Shanahan. The final scores were as follows:

  • Doolan 265 points
  • Shanahan 260 points
  • Knights 233 points
  • Spillane 204 points

Congratulations to all our winners who will represent the College at the Broken Bay (BBSSSA) Swimming Carnival at SOPAC, Homebush on Thursday 11 March.
