Catholic Girls School Swimming and Athletics

On Tuesday 5 March, 22 girls competed at the SACSSGSA Swimming Carnival. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge their dedication in attending several early morning swim squad training sessions leading up to the carnival and a big thank you to Ms Parente and Ms MacLennan for supervising the sessions and supporting the squad. Our girls were wonderful representatives of the College and competed to the best of their ability on the night. This year the competition combined all schools into the same grade rather than splitting into A and B grade. Mary MacKillop placed 5th overall, an excellent achievement the team should be proud of.

Not long after our own Athletics Carnival, it was time to hit the track and field again with 50 students who were selected in the SACSSGSA Athletics team. On Tuesday 19 March, the team competed in various events against other Catholic girls’ teams with many of our students achieving 1st or 2nd place in their events. The results from the carnival were:

  • Under 13’s – 2nd place
  • Under 14’s – 2nd place
  • Under 15’s – 2nd Place
  • Under 16’s – 1st place champions
  • 16+ - 4th place.

Overall, Mary MacKillop placed 3rd in B Grade, missing out on second place by just 10 points.
