From Swimming Convenor, Nicola Silsby
Friday saw the first swim meet for 2020 out at the SOPAC for the CAS Invitational.
After a difficult week with the pool not being open, our swimmers had to compete fresh from the summer holidays. This did not put the boys off; we had one of our biggest turnouts, with over 50 boys in attendance. We also welcomed our new Year 7 students for their first High School swim meet.
The evening saw many personal bests broken across all the distances and strokes, with some students trying out new races for the first time. The standout performance from the night was from our swim captain, Peter Cassimatis, who broke a Waverley swim record in the 50m breaststroke. Peter swam in a time of 30.75 seconds, beating the previous record of 31.53, which has stood since 1991. This is a huge achievement and l want to congratulate him on such a strong start to 2020!
Well done to all of the boys who competed, and all of the parents who helped out on the night. I am looking forward to seeing what our next competition has in store.
Waves to win!
