New Swim to Success

April 3, 2018

The Newington Swim Team completed the GPS season on Friday 23 March with a fantastic night of racing at SOPAC. The swimmers conjured up some amazing performances, which ultimately resulted in a GPS Senior Swimming Premiership and a GPS Open Relays Competition victory.  A huge effort was put in by every member of the team, whether they swam in one event or many. The black and white army turned out in force to cheer the boys on.

The magnitude of the senior team’s effort is evident in the results.  No Newington swimmer placed lower than 4th in any race in the final night of competition.  Ten first-place finishes were achieved with seven of them shared between Jack Rudkins (12/MA) with four and Lachlan Sheehy (11/JN) with three.  Captain of the team Aiden Fisher (12/FL)also placed first in an individual event and the 17 Years relay team won both the Freestyle and Medley events.

Congratulations to all swimmers for their efforts and thank you to the boys who came to cheer them on on the night.
