Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Tocumwal Pub­lic School have again shown their dom­i­nance in the pool tak­ing out the Fin­ley Zone swim­ming car­ni­val for the sixth year in a row at Co­bram this month.

Toc. de­feated the nine other schools in the zone for over­all hon­ours, as well as plac­ing sec­ond in the race for the hand­i­cap tro­phy.

A team of 23 TPS stu­dents com­peted in all events, af­ter plac­ing first or sec­ond in their school car­ni­val, as well as com­ing un­der a set qual­i­fy­ing time.

As an in­di­ca­tor of the depth of their team, three TPS stu­dents were named in­di­vid­ual age cham­pi­ons. They were as fol­lows:

Ju­nior boy – Heath Mansell, Ju­nior girl – Molly-Mae Ruigrok and 11 year old boy – Lo­gan White, with the lat­ter cap­ping off a suc­cess­ful car­ni­val by break­ing two records.

Prin­ci­pal Dar­ren White said he was im­mensely proud of the way in which the TPS stu­dents com­peted at the car­ni­val.

‘‘They sup­ported each other all day and con­tinue to demon­strate the ben­e­fit of in­ten­sive swim­ming lessons as well as the out­side train­ing that stu­dents do in their own time. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the TPS swim­mers,’’ he said.
