After the completion of our regional NSATIS and SSATIS Swimming Carnivals, students from the north and south came together today at the Hobart Aquatic Centre to battle it out for the nine available shields. There was a high standard of competition across the meet with several records broken. Jordan Cooper from St Patricks College broke the Boys U16 50m breaststroke record from 2009 in a time of 32.78s. The St Michael’s Collegiate Under 13 Girls 200m Freestyle Relay team posted a new record time in their event and the St Patrick’s College U14 Boys 200m Freestyle Relay team proved unbeatable in their event posting a new record for the meet.
St Patricks College dominated the day taking home 8 of the 9 shields. Results from the Age Pennants were more evenly spread with St Pat’s winning 5 age categories and The Hutchins School, Launceston Church Grammar School, St Michael’s Collegiate, Scotch Oakburn College and Fahan School sharing the others.
Many thanks go out as always to the invaluable assistance provided by officials from Swimming Tasmania who volunteer their time to assist us in producing these carnivals. Without them the events simply could not run so we are very grateful for their ongoing support of our school meets
Congratulations to all students and staff for their contribution to the event. Many swimmers are experiencing inter-school sport for the first time and it is a credit to them and all school staff who work tirelessly to prepare students for these carnivals and support them on the day.
So that’s it for SATIS Swimming for 2017. Fantastic to see so many competitors participating and enjoying the day.
