Faction Swimming Carnival

Tuesday 6 March 2018


In an outstanding performance, Braithwaite won the carnival in brilliant style, powering down the pool, competitors in almost every race, gaining podium finish after podium finish and piling on the points. Braithwaite’s final score of 532 blew the rest away, 2nd Shakespeare 398, 3rd Menzies 320 and Axford 4th with a credible 295.  All the factions and competitors can be very proud of their sportsmanship and never give-up attitude.

Braithwaite in a stunning result also won the Bonus Points shield for their supportive attitude and great cheering. You may remember that Braithwaite won the bonus point shield at the athletics carnival in 2017. Back to back swimming and back to back bonus point shield – BRILLIANT!

In addition of the 13 champions, 7 were from Braithwaite. ALSO BRILLIANT BRAITHWAITE!
