NSATIS Swimming Carnival
Wednesday 9 March saw the NSATIS Swimming Carnival held at the Launceston Aquatic Centre. Coming off the back of very successful 2021 NSATIS and SATIS carnivals, the team was keen to replicate this success; which we did with flying colours.
Our record breakers came in with the Girls Under 15, 100m Freestyle where Taylor Brock conquered Ariarne Titmus’ record, before she moved to train in Queensland, in a time of 1:00.79 The Girls Under 15, 4x50m Freestyle relay team, consisting of Taylor Brock, Bella Muldoon, Grace Mitchell and Grace Culhane also gained a record in a time of 2:01.57.
All our relays were brilliant and helped the team secure five of the seven shields on offer: Girls Senior Shield, Girls Aggregate Shield, Boys Senior Shield, Boys Aggregate Shield, Co-Ed Aggregate Shield.
We also won seven out of ten age groups pennants: Under 15 Girls, Under 16 Girls, Open Girls, Under 13 Boys, Under 15 Boys, Under 16 Boys, Open Boys.
I would like to thank Mrs Jane Gregg for her contribution in selecting, managing and supporting the team as Person In Charge of Swimming and Ms Julie Kemp for assisting with the swimming program.
We now look to the SATIS Carnival in Hobart on Tuesday 22 March, being held at the Hobart Aquatic Centre where a similar team will be competing. We look forward to similar success from our swimmers. Well done to all our swimmers for their brilliant efforts on the day.
