The annual Xavier College Swimming Carnival was held on Friday 1st April at the Trevor Bellchambers Pool in perfect weather conditions. Motivation and enthusiasm amongst the Houses was high, with the incentive of the overall House Sports Shield in everybody’s sights. The passion and excitement displayed by the students was evident from the outset and remained high throughout the day’s proceedings.
The atmosphere certainly heightened during the day, with up-to-date results showing as little as 1 point between first and second. The 25m events and novelty events again proved popular with students, as did the annual clash of the staff vs students freestyle relay, with the staff maintaining their dominance in the event.
There were some outstanding results on the day, with Bradley Bain breaking 3 College records and Makayla Ailmore 2 during the program. Ultimately, the winner was decided by the relays, with Occhiena displaying their dominance in the event and being crowned the 2011 Xavier College Swimming Champions. Congratulations to Ms Smith and all staff and students in Occhiena on their result.
