SSV Swimming State Finals

During the first week of term whilst many students were simply adjusting back into routines of everyday school life, a small number of students were off representing the school at the State Swimming and Diving championships. 

Ten students represented the college at the State Swimming Championships and the results were as follows:

- Will Sharp (Year 10) won 3 Gold (50m Backstroke, 50m Butterfly and 50m Freestyle and 1 Silver medal. He travels to Sydney for the Australian Age Championships next week; 

- Maya Hammam (Year 11) won a Gold medal in the 50m Butterfly;

- Ron Golombick (Year 7) won a Bronze medal in the 50m Butterfly and a Silver medal in the Relay;

- Our Junior Boys, Kai Sawaki (Year 8), Jarek Soen (Year 8), Ron Golombick (Year 7) and Flynn Lu (Year 8) won a Silver medal in a blistering time for the Medley Relay;

- The Intermediate Boys, Michael Gershenzon (Year 9), Jacob Gray (Year 11), Will Sharp (Year 10) and Alan Tang (Year 11) won Gold in the Freestyle Relay. These boys missed the state record by 1.3 seconds.

Four students represented the college at the SMR and State Diving championships on Thursday 19 April. All the girls competed well on the day. Elly Booth (Year 7) was a standout on the day winning a Bronze Medal in the SMR Final and making it through to the State Final.

Well done to all students on their fantastic achievements early in Term 2.
