Swan Val­ley lap up car­ni­val win

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

SWAN Val­ley Angli­can Com­mu­nity School dom­i­nated the F divi­sion at the As­so­ci­ated and Catholic Col­leges Swim­ming Car­ni­val at HBF Sta­dium last week.

The school walked away with 842 points, beat­ing Aran­more by 11 points.

The team trained for weeks in an­tic­i­pa­tion for the event and showed de­ter­mi­na­tion.

Swan Val­ley Angli­can sports co­or­di­na­tor Dar­ryn Long­bot­tom said the goal was to fin­ish in the top two.

“As a team Aran­more Col­lege was our big­gest com­peti­tor,” he said. “It was a close bat­tle through­out the day with only a hand­ful of points sep­a­rat­ing the top three schools right from the first event.

“We waited with bated breath for the re­sults as we were only 20 points ahead be­fore the re­lays. Our team was fan­tas­tic on the day and win­ning the girls ag­gre­gate and ju­nior boys shield was fan­tas­tic. How­ever when the win­ning school was an­nounced our team was ec­static.”

The team will now move into the E divi­sion for the 2018 car­ni­val.

Mr Long­bot­tom said the whole school was proud of what the stu­dents had achieved.

“We have waited five year to hold up the shield again, but it was well worth the wait,” he said.
