All-round team ef­fort wins it for Co­rang

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

AN ALL-round team ef­fort was re­spon­si­ble for Co­rang House’s victory at Gin Gin High School’s swim­ming car­ni­val.

The de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons romped to victory, and had five of their swim­mers crowned age cham­pi­ons.

Stand­out in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances of the day went to the “madame but­ter­flies”, Chelsea and Angie Walker.

Chelsea broke two records on the day. The first was in the back­stroke event, and her sec­ond was in her pet event, the but­ter­fly.

Both records were pre­vi­ously held by He­len Page, and were set in the early 1990s.

Angie Walker broke her sis­ter Christine’s but­ter­fly record set in 2013.

In a fit­ting fi­nale to the day, the 16-years Co­rang girls re­lay team not only beat the boys home but also broke the 4 x 25m freestyle re­lay record pre­vi­ously set by the Manum­bar House in 2007.

The Chap­lain’s House Spirit Award was also awarded on the day.

The award recog­nises the house that demon­strates the best house spirit.

School chap­lain Dar­ren Lawrence is the sole judge of the award, given his im­par­tial­ity, and awarded the House Spirit Award to Baranga House.
