All-round team effort wins it for Corang
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.
THEY’RE OFF: Gin Gin High School’s swimming carnival was held on February 25.
