Middle School Inter-House Swimming Carnival

The first of our Inter-House events for 2017 was the Middle School Swimming Carnival held at HBF stadium on Tuesday 7 February. The event was officially opened by our Middle School Piper, Tom Lynch (8.6C) who gave an outstanding performance leading the School in a march around the pool.

There were many outstanding performances both in and out of the pool on the day. In the pool there were two records broken by Marco Ghiselli (6.3T) broke the 2016 Year 6 Breaststroke record with a time of 43.22 seconds and Nicolas Le Page (8.1T) broke the Year 8 Backstroke record, which was set in 2003, swimming 33.03 seconds in his final. Congratulations to these boys on their achievements.

The performances out of the pool were just as pleasing. The House spirit was on display throughout the day, most notably during the House finals and 4x50m relays. It was great to see so many boys support not only their fellow House members, but all swimmers in the pool.

Final results from the day were:

1st Gordon : 2659
2nd Bruce : 2359
3rd James : 2222
4th Andrew : 2171
5th David : 2134
6th Robert : 2105

Congratulations to Gordon House, who has completed the first "threepeat" in Middle School history. This could be tough to beat!
