Newman Sport – ACC Sports Carnival

ACC Swimming Carnival Recap

The College had a fantastic result in Wednesday’s A Division ACC Swimming Carnival, finishing 4th overall at HBF Stadium. All swimmers gave their absolute all, with most recording personal best times. Although we do have our share of individual superstars, it was the depth of our relay squads (Division 1 and 2) which ensured such a successful outcome.

There is a large amount of work that goes into the planning, organization and management of an ACC Carnival and myself and Tom would like to thank the PE staff for all of their support and especially their assistance on the day. Marshalling 120 anxious swimmers to 124 events with plenty of troubleshooting in between takes some serious patience and skill.

Thank you also to Brenda McNutt and Jill Dickinson for their administrative help behind the scenes.

As mentioned we do have some top scoring superstars in the team so special mention to;

  • 1st Emily Holland U17 Female ‘Champion Girl’
  • 4th James Bornmann U13 Male
  • 3rd Jessica Bourke U13 Female
  • 2nd Imogen Boss U15 Female
  • 4th Jake Paynter U16 Male
  • 4th Ella Hodgson U16 Female

Congratulations to John XX111 for winning the event for the first time since 1991.
