Andrews Cup Swimming
Last Tuesday, 12 March, the Andrews Cup Swimming team competed at the Sleeman Sports Complex, Chandler. Being one of the smallest schools out of 10, our team of 55 girls had an absolutely incredible day of success with exceptional results with many girls in their individual and relay teams placing in the top three positions, others producing personal bests and breaking Andrews Cup records. All team members are to be congratulated on their commitment leading into the competition and on the day of the event. Particular mention must go to our 10 year girls who placed a fantastic first place in their age group, our 8 years girls who placed 3rd and our 12 years who placed fourth in their age group. Congratulations girls on such an exciting day of swimming, your St Aidan’s sporting spirit, your comradery and sportswomanship shone brightly across the Sleeman Pool by all involved. You certainly held onto your Captains motto of “Don’t count laps make every lap count” and you demonstrated it beautifully. A terrific day!
I would like to thank the parents who supported the swimming at Chandler – your encouragement and support was appreciated by all girls. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Captains, Milly Harris, Mia Kirk, and Arlie Richardson for being such wonderful role models, the staff and coaches who were involved in preparing the girls, in particular - Ricki Fasala, Tereka Fasala and Cade Fasala.
Swimming Squad Training (Target Andrew 2020)
Swimming Training will recommence in Term 4. Should girls wish to continue swimming, learn to swim and squad trainings are available at Dunlop Park Pool, Corinda. Please ensure you advise the staff that the child is a St. Aidan’s student.
