Swim­mers com­pete with skill

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

LAST week, the Whit­sun­day Christian Col­lege held the an­nual pri­mary and sec­ondary swim­ming car­ni­vals at the Can­non­vale Pool.

The events were well at­tended by stu­dents across all age groups from Prep to Year 12, and the spirit of com­pet­i­tive­ness and mate­ship shone through as bright as the sun.

Whit­sun­day Christian Col­lege Sports co-or­di­na­tor Sam Pri­estly said he was par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with the team spirit and at­ti­tude dis­played at the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I am al­ways im­pressed by the per­for­mances of our stu­dents. Some are new to swim­ming and you can see the raw tal­ent that’s com­ing through, and oth­ers train week in and week out which shows in their strong tech­niques and re­sults,” he said.

“(The) high­lights for me would be see­ing the stu­dents who be­lieve swim­ming is their num­ber one sport show­ing their skills in this arena and also the high level of house spirit shown from our Prep to Year 12 stu­dents.

“The at­ten­dance for the car­ni­val was strong as they usu­ally are for all of our sport­ing events.”

The age old bat­tle be­tween the Lions and Ea­gles houses was as in­tense as al­ways with a nar­row and nail-bit­ing fin­ish.

While the Ea­gles held a nar­row lead in both the pri­mary and sec­ondary schools, re­sults re­main in the count­ing stage and pre­sen­ta­tions are yet to be re­vealed.

Whit­sun­day Christian Col­lege thanked the crew at Can­non­vale Swim Cen­tre for pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing fa­cil­i­ties and as­sis­tance.
