Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

HUN­DREDS of swim­mers are don­ning caps and gog­gles ready to do bat­tle at the an­nual Schools Swim­ming Chal­lenge on November 18.

The 20th edi­tion of the com­pe­ti­tion, hosted by the South­side Pen­rhos Wes­ley Swim­ming Club, will be held at the Wes­ley Col­lege swim­ming pool from 6pm.

Stu­dents from years 4 to 6 from Wes­ley Col­lege, Pen­rhos Col­lege, South Perth Pri­mary, Kens­ing­ton Pri­mary, Como Pri­mary, Mt Pleas­ant Pri­mary, St Columba’s Catholic Pri­mary and St Pius X Catholic Pri­mary schools will go head-to-head to gain points for their school team.

Last year’s girls and mixed teams winners Ap­ple­cross Pri­mary are not com­pet­ing this year so the com­pe­ti­tion in those cat­e­gories will be wide open.

South­side Pen­rhos Wes­ley Swim­ming Club swim­mers will also be com­pet­ing as ‘The Dol­phins’ if they do not at­tend one of the com­pet­ing schools or are not swim­ming for their school.
