Twelve Junior School students from Snowy Mountains Grammar School represented the school at the HICES (Heads of Independent Co-educational Schools) Swimming Carnival held at the Sydney Aquatic Centre in Homebush.
Swimming in an Olympic 50 metre pool with 18 other schools from across NSW was both a daunting and exciting adventure for the young participants.
All 12 students must be commended for their outstanding behaviour and for the incredible level of enthusiasm and determination shown in such a high level competition. While all of the students certainly performed admirably in all events, a few noteworthy performances were achieved:
Sophie Bell - 3rd 9 years girls 50m freestyle and 3rd Junior girls 50m backstroke
Caiden Bolitho - 3rd 12 years boys 50m breaststroke
Miranda Green - 3rd 11years girls 50m backstroke and 4th 11 years girls 50m freestyle
Sam Roche - 4th 10years boys 50m freestyle and 4th Junior boys 100m freestyle
Charlotte Wilson - 4th 9 years girls 50m freestyle and 4th Junior girls 50m butterfly.
All students thoroughly enjoyed the competition experience and we must thank their wonderful parents for taking the time out of their busy schedules to accompany the team to Sydney.
The school is certainly looking forward to building a strong Junior School Swimming Team for our return to Olympic Park in 2015.
