On Monday 7th March the Faith Swim Team traveled to the SA Aquatic Centre in Adelaide to compete in the State Swimming Championships. The team competed against 8 other schools from across the state.

There were some outstanding individual performances on the day, with students striving to do their best in each event. The most pleasing aspect of the day was the way in which students pulled together as a team. The way the SSSSA Carnivals work is that each individual result contributes to an overall team result, with the ability to field a swimmer in each event being paramount. On the day this meant that many team members:

  • Swam in the maximum 5 events
  • Swam in higher age groups
  • Swam in events that followed on quickly from a previous event
  • Came to the rescue and filled relay teams that needed an extra team member

It was also great to have a number of parents make it along on the day to support the team and assist with timing duties.

Thanks also to all the Faith PE staff for their involvement in getting the team organised and to Mr Nick Schmidt and Mrs Lynlee Mangelsdorf who accompanied the team on the day.

Faith was very competitive at the meet with some excellent team results and many individual students gaining certificates for their achievements.

Overall the team results were:

Place Boys Girls Combined
1st Brighton Loxton Brighton
2nd Faith Tatachilla Tatachilla
3rd Marryatville Brighton Loxton
4th Tatachilla Adelaide High Faith
5th Loxton Faith Marryatville
6th Adelaide High Marryatville Adelaide High
7th Pulteney Pulteney Pulteney
8th St John’s St John’s St John’s

The Boys Team were only 11 points behind the winning Team!
