Swimming Carnival

Leeming competed in the C Division Interschool Swimming Carnival at HBF Stadium on Tuesday 19 March 2019. Despite not having competitors in all events and unable to fill some relay teams the students performed superbly throughout the day to take out Second place. This has earnt the team a promotion to B Division in 2020.

Stand out Performers on the day were Adrian F. (Year 7) who won four A Division events and Ben M. (Year 8). Both boys were Champion swimmers in their age group. Jordan B. (Year 7) and Mason B. (Year 9) were Runner-Up Champions while Yi-Lin T. (Year 8), Keely T. (Year 10) and Johann N. (Year 11 and over) also performed well and finished in Third place in the individual champion award.

The Year 8 boys were able to win all four divisions in the 50 m freestyle and went on to blitz the field in the relay to win by a massive margin of 18 seconds. The performance was matched in the final event by the Year 11 and over boys who won in a close race to lift the team from 3rd to 2nd ahead of Kent Street.

Other amazing efforts were from Jordan B., Keely T. and Tamika B., who swam events with only minutes rest in between to ensure we had swimmers in events.

A special thanks to Mr. Broughton who has overseen the team this year and Mrs. Graham for her help and for keeping the team motivated during the carnivals. We look forward to next year as we step forward into the higher grade. Well done to everyone. With only a 5 point gap to Third every single swimmer made a difference.
