Back-to-back ACC Swimming Champions

Congratulations to our swim team who on Friday 22 February successfully defended their title and claimed the 2019 ACC Division 1 Swimming Championship!

In what was an extremely close swim meet, our defiant team held on to overcome Whitefriars College by 2.5 points. With such close scores for the entirety of the night, it was a true team performance where there was a lot riding on every race; every finishing place really counted. 

Just as impressive as the final scores, was the team’s attitude both inside and outside of the pool; the team truly looked out for each other and the senior students embraced the next generation of swimmers coming through.

All 2019 swim team members, led by their Captains, Campbell Freeman and Morgan Morffew, are to be congratulated on their efforts and their contribution to this great success. Swimming requires many dedicated early mornings and these students reaped the rewards of their unwavering commitment.

This year Guy has been ably assisted by former Swim Captain, Angus McLean (Class of 2018) whose continued willingness to be involved in the De La Salle community sets a fine example for our younger swimmers.
