Swimmers compete with skill
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.
