Indigo has increased the winning streak to 5 in a row, after being declared outright winners of the 2017 WSSC Swimming Carnival on Friday 24th February.
Fierce competition throughout the day, saw several records very close to being broken, with a record from 1995, coming seconds off being broken by Sam Waite in the 20 Year 50 meters Freestyle. Teagan Roberts was also only seconds from the 16 Year 50 meter Freestyle record, set in 2007.
Novelty events during the day also provided an opportunity for all students to participate in the festivities, with Fashions on the Field proving popular once again. The Patterson Ninja, Caitlyn Reagan, dominated the competition, outperforming the combined effort of the Sumo Girls from Indigo, Paterson and Bogong. The annual Year 12 Bombing event also wowed the crowd, with the Competition taken out by Portia Stowers and Bailey Jones, both marvelling the crowd with their technique and style.
The Olympic Spirit Award was won by Shannon Wilson, for his consistent encouragement and participation across the day, culminating in a winning performance in the relays, earning valuable points for Fraser.
Indigo, outright winners finished on 1214 points, with Fraser finishing second on 1083 points, Bogong finished third with 934 points, and Paterson finished in fourth place on 552 points.
The real question that everyone is now asking is can Indigo make it 5 in a row for Athletics too or will they finally be knocked from their perch. Every point counts so be there to support your team on Thursday March 30th and don’t forget to #WSSCAths.
