2017 SCSA Swimming Results - MSAC

SCSA Swimming 2017 was a great success! All girls who participated put in so much effort to get up early in the morning for some hard training sessions and swam amazingly on the night! We could not have asked for a better outcome, coming second overall and having our intermediates come first! Well done to all the girls, we hope you are proud of your achievements! A special mention to the intermediate 4x50m relay team, Teena Getulio, Ella Hickey, Pia Fullaondo & Olivia Payne, for breaking the SCSA record!

SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENTS

Congratulations are due to Teena Getulio from Year 9, who dominated her events at the SCSA Swimming Carnival.

Teena won all of her races and in doing so, also achieved new PCW records. In her first individual race of the night she won the 100m Intermediate Freestyle in a time of 1min 03.85sec. This time missed the current record of 1:03.61 by a mere quarter of a second.  Jacqueline Monaghan holds the current record.  Next Teena bettered the PCW Intermediate Butterfly record with a time of 31.85 lowering Jacqueline’s record by 0.15 seconds.  She then lowered the mark in the 50m Freestyle Year 9 with a very fast 29.61 making her one of the fastest PCW swimmers of all time, in any age group.  Finally, her team with Ella Hickey, Pia Fullaondo and Olivia Payne set a new record for the SCSA Intermediate 4x50m Freestyle Relay.

Outside of school swimming I would like to acknowledge Teena’s great achievements in her OPEN WATER races.  In recent years, Teena has competed in the 5000m open water Victorian Championships and earlier this year competed in Adelaide in the Australian Championship.  She entered the open race despite being only 14 years of age and incredibly came 20th.  Her training regime includes an amazing 40km per week of swimming and we wish her luck as she approaches her goals of National qualifying times and in the future even National selection.

A big Congratulations are also in order for the marvellous Year 7 swimming team, particularly the 4x50m Freestyle Relay team. This team consisting of Chloe Kaufman, Ava McQueen, Sofia Fullaondo and Felicity Hickey set a very fast time of 2mins 24.15 seconds, just missing the current PCW record.  From PCW, only the Intermediate team and the Senior A team were faster! If “Year 7” was a separate category in the competition, (the categories are Junior, Intermediate and Senior), PCW year 7 would have easily won.

Jess Monaghan also deserves a special mention, for her excellent results.  She came second in the 100m Senior Freestyle in 1:07.74.  She won her backstroke in 38.00, second in the butterfly in 35.14, second in the Freestyle in 32.01 and 3rd in the breaststroke.

There were many other outstanding performances and everyone tried their best. The team should be very proud of the wonderful overall result of second to OLSH, defeating Mater Christi, Santa Maria, Sacred Heart Girls and Ave Maria.

“…To meet the demands of contemporary societies wisely young people of today must become able to navigate growing international interdependence, participate actively in the local and global sphere, understand the environment and its sustainability, care for mind, body and well-being and become reflective learners in dynamic knowledge societies. Responding to these demands the MYP curricular model articulates a much needed bridge between what is typically learned in schools and the most pressing questions that concern our societies. Attentive to adolescents’ development, the programme emphasizes rigorous learning in the disciplines and interdisciplinary synergy, inviting students to tackle relevant issues—from climate change to globalization—thus preparing them for the work of the next generation”
