A brilliant day filled with fantastic performances from our students resulted in a clean sweep at the SSWA Interschool Swimming Carnival on Tuesday. BCC won the Lower School and Upper School shield and subsequently clinched Champion School Shield to take honours in this year’s competition.
The College assembled a very strong team and the day was filled with plenty of team and individual achievements. These included the following Champion Boy and Girl swimmers:
Year 7- Bryce Facey & Amity Parsons
Year 8- Kaiden Richings
Year 9- Maddison Stewart
Year 10- Kyle Lee & Georgia Gianotti
Year 11/12- Courtney Lee
Also worth noting were the long standing records broken by Maddison Stewart (50m Breaststroke), our Year 10 and Under Boys Medley Relay (K Richings, K Lee, N Eichner, D Sanders) and finally our Year 11 and Over Girls 4 x 50m Freestyle Relay team (C Lee, C Parsons, Z Buck, P Runeckles). The girls’ records in particular set as far back as 1991 and 1997.
All in, a terrific performance by all of our students as we won about three quarters of all events at the carnival.
Special thanks must go out to parent volunteer Mrs Lara Lee, who led our training squad and staff members Mrs Terri Gann, Mr John Leyendekkers, Mrs Hannelize Reddin, Ms Jo Hutcheson, Ms Paige McKenzie, Mrs Karen Walker and Mr Vlad Alava who were on hand at the early morning training sessions and breakfast.
