Quads win has swimmers on pace for Inters
The Christ Church Swimming Team claimed its third consecutive John Ryan Shield at the Quadrangular (Quads) Swimming Meet last week. Teacher in Charge Luke Farmer said while the boys performed well, there was still some room for improvement ahead of the PSA Swimming Carnival this Thursday.
Christ Church finished on 1546 points ahead of Wesley on 1404 to win its 19th title in the meet’s 28-year history. Scotch finished in third place on 1050 and Trinity in fourth 1016.
Mr Farmer said the boys did really well but still had some aspects to work on for the major competition this week. “Relay changeovers, hard finishes to the wall and an increased desire to win are all areas of focus for our lead up,” he said.
The Open Boys’ Medley Relay Team, of Callum Campbell, David Hoey, Sam Hall and Tom England, set a new record of 1:53.81 to break the previous record of 1:54.89.
The traditional pasta night and guest speaker pep talk will by held on Wednesday afternoon. The PSA Swimming Carnival is on Thursday 15 March at Challenge Stadium. The first race starts at 5.15pm and the team welcomes all support from the Christ Church community.
