St Luke’s snap up the shield at car­ni­val

Pilbara News - - Swimming - Tom Zaun­mayr

St Luke’s Col­lege won the Pil­bara in­ter­school swim­ming car­ni­val held at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex pool last Fri­day.

The St Luke’s team scored 351 points for the meet, enough to see them fin­ish ahead of Kar­ratha Se­nior High School (280) and Tom Price Se­nior High School (276).

The high­light of the meet was the open boys 50m freestyle re­lay, which came down to a fin­ger­nail’s dif­fer­ence on the fi­nal lap.

St Luke’s health and physical ed­u­ca­tion head Kogi Goven­der said it was good to see healthy com­pe­ti­tion be­tween the three schools.

“It was fiercely com­pet­i­tive and the kids gave their ab­so­lute best,” she said.

“These com­pe­ti­tions fos­ter quite good team spirit be­tween the schools and the kids make good friend­ships as well. In ad­di­tion to the com­pe­ti­tion, we want them to be able to make life­time friend­ships from this.”

Ms Goven­der said it would be good to see more teams com­pete next year, af­ter Hed­land and New­man were late with­drawals last week.

Tom Price’s Drew Mi­si­uepa won the open boys di­vi­sion and Ja­cynta Felix from St Luke’s won the open girls cat­e­gory.
