​Swimming Carnival Winners 2019 - Phillip

On Friday 22 February, Ayr High’s annual Interhouse Swimming Carnival took place with lots of excitement and colour on show. With Phillip attaining an early lead in the overall points score, they quickly established themselves as the house to beat. They led the way for most of the day with the other houses closely battling it out. Ultimately, it came down to Phillip and Banks as they fought for first and second place, whilst Cook and Macquarie battled it out for third and fourth. Phillip triumphed to be crowned overall winners with a total of 1206 points; Banks finished second on 983 points; Cook in third place with 737 points; and Macquarie in fourth place with 683 points.
Congratulations to the Phillip House Captains and House Parents for organising and encouraging their team towards a well-deserved victory. Well done to the Captains of the other houses who provided a great day of spirit and competition. Congratulations to Macquarie being awarded the ‘Spirit Stick’ as they established themselves as the loudest and proudest house. Macquarie displayed immense team spirit with continual encouragement and chants for their participants throughout the day.
 
The 50m Dash for Cash, which is a handicapped race, saw the fastest 50m freestyle swimmers in each age-group compete to claim the title of fastest Ayr High swimmer. The winners were Khyla Cursio (U12) and Brent Barnett (U16). This event was proudly sponsored by Kim and Michael McConnachie (winners received $50 prize money). Cook claimed honours in the All-Age relay, which sees each house submit one team of 12 competitors (1 boy and 1 girl in each age-group) in a 12 x 50m Freestyle Relay.
 
Tyla Cox (U13), Blake Jorgensen (U13), Emma King (U14), Jackson Oats (U15), Rory Jorgensen (U16), Brent Barnett (U16) and Ryan Kastner (U19) are to be congratulated in sharing the Max Tavasci Trophy, which is awarded to individual competitors who achieve maximum individual points (75 points).
