From Convenor of Swimming, Nicola Silsby
On a very wet and windy Saturday evening, Waverley swim team headed to North Sydney pool to compete in the Christian Brothers Swimming Carnival. The rain had been against us all day, however, we were lucky enough to avoid any lightning, so the evening went ahead.
Waverley turned up in full force and was the team to beat from the start. The evening started strongly with us winning 14 out of the first 24 races, coming second in 6 of them. After the first points announcement, we were out in the lead.
The night continued with great performances across all strokes. PB’s were broken and the ribbons were flying in after each race. Lucky for us the rain eased off after the first hour which led to a more enjoyable spectator experience for all the parents who turned up to support the team.
The relay teams stole the night when we came 1st place in each of the Junior and Intermediate relays and 2nd place in the Senior relays, showing just how strong our swim team is and how great they work together.
By the end of the evening Waverley swimmers were exhausted, but to be congratulated as we won the trophy which Mr Leddie presented to the swim captains Stuart Swinburn and Will Davison. We were also presented with the shields for both the Junior and Intermediate age group competition which was a great achievement. Out of the 76 races that took place that night, we took a medal position in 68 of them.
All the boys involved should be congratulated for their outstanding performance. I cannot wait to see what more there is to come at CAS next week.
