Gosford High School has taken out first place in the Brisbane Water Zone Swimming Carnival.
Held at Woy Woy’s Peninsula Leisure Centre on March 5, Principal, Michael Smith, said the school’s strong contingent of athletes proved that Gosford High’s reputation for excellence in the pool was well deserved.
“Our swim team performed exceptionally well.
“Rumours had been whispered around the zone that Gosford’s era of dominance in the water was possibly hanging on by a thread, however, that perceived weakness only served to steel the focus of our swimmers.
“An outstanding display of enthusiasm and teamwork saw the Blue Genies fill almost every possible lane, and the incredible training that our swimmers have completed was rewarded with some excellent results.
“Our opposition schools put up a fantastic fight to push our athletes to the limit, but the Genies finished the carnival in first place.
“Congratulations to our great swim team and thank you to our Team Manager, Miss Stockwell, for maintaining a well-oiled swimming machine,” Smith said.
Several members of the team will now move on to the Sydney North Zone Carnival, to be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre later in March.
