May 2017 Update:
Huge congratulations to Amy Lucas (Year 12) who represented the South Coast at the CHS Swimming Championships at Homebush in the last week of Term 1.
Amy qualified for five events at this years' meet, which vindicated the hard work that she has put into her sport for so many years now. Her times leading up to this event were also extremely promising and those in the know were hopeful that she would qualify for some finals at this prestigious and highly competitive carnival.
What we can now announce is that Amy has become a silver medallist at this State Carnival in the 17yrs+ Girls 100m butterfly event! This is an absolutely fantastic result and her time of 1.05.94 was not only a personal best but also just outside her 100m freestyle time of 1.05.00.
Again, we can only throw accolades upon Amy who has now qualified for the NSW All Schools event for the first time.
Well done, Miss Lucas!
After cancelling our annual swimming carnival in week three, due to wet weather, we rescheduled for a day in the sun on Thursday 16 February.
It was a fantastic day with some excellent results in the pool.
Year 12 had a blast, dancing up a storm and raising money with a sponge throwing competition, all whilst wearing their Hawaiian shirts.
We had a great turnout from our new Year 7 cohort, all of whom were enthusiastic participants in both the competitive and novelty events. Well done!
The following students all earned the most points for their age group, making them Swimming Age Champions for 2017. Congratulations!
An extra special mention to Amy Lucas who beat a ten year old record in the 100m Freestyle. A great effort Amy. Munda took out the house cup this carnival with a total point score of six hundred and sixty four, followed by Gugara on four hundred and eighty four, Buru on three hundred and sixty five and Guruwin on two hundred and sixty three points! Congratulations Munda, we look forward to bringing some house spirit to our cross country carnival later this term.
Zone Swimming Report
We took a small, but enthusiastic team of swimmers to Dapto Pool on Wednesday 22 February for our annual Zone Swimming Carnival.
Full compliments go to every one of our swimmers and in particular Penny Calvert, Allana Stortz, Amelia Tripi and Josh Vassallo who all swam in events that they were not listed in order for our school to be represented. We appreciate your school spirit.
Great performances on the day from the following swimmers, who have now qualified for The Regional Carnival on the 7 March.
Regional Swimming Report
A number of Albion Park High School students recently attended the South Coast Regional
Swimming Carnival held at Dapto pool.
We had some great results in the pool, with seven students swimming in individual events and seven
relay teams competing for a medal.
Our relay teams each improved on their time from the zone competition and had a great time
cheering each other on.
Congratulations to Amy Lucas who competed in five events on the day and will go through to
represent the region at the NSW CHS carnival later this term. Amy placed first in the 17-19 years
100m Butterfly, second in the 200m Freestyle and third in both the 100m Freestyle and 50m
Freestyle. Good luck at state, Amy.
