Hamilton win College Swimming Sports

February 10, 2014 at 2:49 PM

The first major full College sporting event was held at the swimming pool last week. After three days of preliminary races across all age groups during the first week of school, hundreds of students jumped into the pool to gain very valuable House points. The top eight swimmers from each event went on to compete on finals day. Hamilton House gained the most preliminary points in the lead up, although Wishart was not far behind.

On the much anticipated finals day, the students competed for their House and for championship points. The weather stayed dry despite some looming grey clouds, and there was great atmosphere at the pool when all Houses marched in and started cheering for their swimmers. There were some very close races and it was good to have competitors from the Girls’ School join us. The day finished with the fiercely competitive House relays and also of course the staff beating the prefects once again.

Congratulations to Hamilton House who earned enough points on finals day to continue their winning streak for the second year running! Wishart followed in 2nd place, Chalmers 3rd and Cargill 4th.   

Well done to all those who competed in the races especially the winners.
