It has been many years since DLS has won the Open 200m Freestyle Relay. It was not only the final event of a ‘very long’ Carnival but clearly the most exciting event on the night with Matthew Northage swimming the last leg of the relay to overtake the St. Bernard’s swimmer in the closing stages to record a memorable DLS victory!

Our 2012 Team were strongly supported by our very loud and lively Cheer Squad and many other past and present students along with parents.

Thank you to the staff who attended on the night to support the team and special thanks to Mrs Fitzpatrick who spent over 4 hours poolside as an Official.

We have really gathered some great enthusiasm and momentum in the DLS Swimming Squad both last year and early this year and this is due in no small part to the time, effort and dedication fo the ACC Swimming Staff: Oscar Carlson, Chris Windley, Gab Windley, Simon brown and Tom Curry.

We are hoping to resume training again soon in preparation for the 2013 ACC Swimming Carnival. There is little rest for a ‘De La Swimmer’!
