A Phelps Finish

Interschool Swimming Squad

Our Swimming Squad led the way in success in the pool in the Whittlesea Division round when our team ventured out to Coburg Olympic Swimming Pool.

We had multiple first placings from a small yet strong squad.

Oliver Stewart, Connor Matzkows, Riley McLay and Alex Luscombe were all members of the first placing Boys 4 x 50m freestyle.

Keeley Parks, Georgia Braddock, Erin Libardi and Jess Brackley were all members of the first placing Girls 4 x 50m freestyle. These girls also scored a first place in the medley relay, along with Bianca Grobler who substituted in the relay (also scoring first in 50m backstroke).

Our standout for the day was our star swimmer Alesha McIntosh, who, in her five races got five first places, the maximum amount any individual can get. These events were the 200m freestyle, 100m butterfly, 100m freestyle, as well as her two relays.

Other individual wins came from Jack Hayton in the 400m freestyle, Zack Ferguson in the 100 breaststroke and Jess Brackley in 50m backstroke.

A brilliant day out from our sensational swimmers.
