Swan Valley Anglican Community School F Division Champions at the recent Associated and Catholic Colleges Swimming Carnival
Swan Valley ACS competed in the F Division ACC Swimming Carnival on Wednesday 15 March at HBF Stadium. After several weeks of training our swimmers embraced the challenge. Our team was poised and they showed true Swan Valley spirit and determination that we have come to expect. Students cheered and supported each other through the day.
Our goal for the day was to finish in the top 2, as a team Aranmore College was our biggest competitor. It was a very close battle throughout the day with only a handful of points separating the top three schools right from the first event. We waited with baited breath for the results with a 20 point lead before the relays. Our team spirit was fantastic on the day, winning the Girls Aggregate and Junior Boys shield was outstanding, however, when the winning school was announced our team was ecstatic. All that hard work paid off, especially for many of the Year 12’s who have worked tirelessly over the years. To finally receive this shield was a reward that meant a great deal to everyone. Winning the Overall Shield means that we will move into E Division in 2018.
