Relays seal CBC's swim win

Teamwork proved to be key to CBC's success in the pool on Wednesday, with the swim team winning the coveted senior boys' category of the ACC A Division Swimming Carnival.

Despite a slow start to the day, which saw CBC drop as low as fourth in the field of eight boys' schools, the determination and skill of swimmers in the closing events narrowed the gap and secured the victory.

CBC's team of 64 swimmers also placed second in the junior and overall boys' categories.

The carnival highlighted the collective strength of CBC's swim team, with half of the day's first place finishes coming from relays. A number of boys also showed their strength with brilliant individual efforts, with Adam Correia, Michael Cipriano, Anthony Macri, Tremayne Mould and Isaac Pollard finishing first in their races.

Year 11 student, Hayden Redmond, was awarded runner-up U17 champion boy, after fantastic efforts in all four of his races.
