Christ Church Grammar School’s dominance in the pool continues.
Following a solid performance at the Public Schools’ Association (PSA) Swimming Inters at HBF Stadium, the School secured yet another victory to retain the Tregonning Cup for the fourth year straight.
Final results on the night were Christ Church in 1st place with 1131.5 points, followed by Hale (853), Scotch (820), Trinity (806), Wesley (708), Aquinas (683.5) and Guildford (380).
New records achieved by members of the School’s swim squad included:
- Jackson Anderson setting a new time record of 26.84 (previous standing record 27.74 in 2010) in the U/13 50m Freestyle
- Sam Hicks setting a new time record of 32.67 (previous standing record 32.87 in 2015) in the U/13 50m Backstroke
- Jackson Anderson setting a new time record of 32.09 (previous standing record 32.67 in 2020) in the U/13 50m Backstroke
- Jackson Anderson setting a new time record of 30.02 (previous standing record 30.60 in 2010) in the U/13 50m Butterfly
Christ Church Teacher in Charge of Aquatics, Mr Luke Farmer said the School’s swim squad demonstrated great form, evident by the number of new PSA and school records achieved on the night.
“Our U/17 Medley Relay team comprised of Jack Reynolds, Nic Johns, Kai Wylie and Oliver Moran were exceptional, setting a new time record of 1.54.21 over the previous school record of 1.59.33,” Mr Farmer said.
“Jackson Anderson was outstanding having set three new PSA records on the night and is certainly a rising athlete to look out for.”
Mr Farmer was also impressed with new individual school records set in the Open 50m Butterfly (Jason Lu), U/17 100m Freestyle (Kai Wylie) and U/17 100m Breaststroke (Nic Johns).
Our thanks goes to the coaching staff and age group managers Katie Dunstan, Holly Rose, Sarah Nicholson, Megan Pentony, Neil Saggers, Bill Kirby, Travis Nederpelt, old boy Will Greenwood, and to our parents who have supported the CCGS swim squad as parent helpers, timekeepers and cooks.
