Great Success at the Primary Zone Swimming Carnival

13 Swimmers travelled to Blacktown for the NSW CSSA Swimming Carnival on Monday. There were some very impressive performances, with some students taking over 3 seconds off their 50m Zone times. Of the 24 events involving our swimmers, 17 of them involved BCC swimmers setting a time that was better than their Zone time. There were quite a few ‘Personal Bests’ recorded at this meet. Our Hunter Zone finished 2nd overall in NSW CSSA.

Congratulations to our Junior Boys 4x50m Relay team, consisting of Flynn Morris, Steele Ellemans, Appin Paterson, and Hamish Rae who won the event, with Hamish coming from third in the final change to run down the competition. These boys will be joined at the NSW CIS Carnival next week by Victoria Robinson, who will compete in the Multiclass 50m Freestyle, Breaststroke and Backstroke. Appin Paterson will swim the 50m Freestyle and Hamish Rae will also swim 50m Freestyle, along with 50m Breaststroke and the Junior 200m Individual Medley.

Well done also to Appin Paterson (9yr), Hamish Rae (10yr) and Victoria Robinson (Open Multiclass) who each finished 3rd in their respective overall Age Championship.

BCC win the Challenge Cup at the Secondary Zone Swimming Carnival

Last week a team of 30 students represented the College at the THACCCSA Zone Swimming Carnival, the team performed exceptionally well! While Green Point (a much larger school) won the outright points competition, Belmont won the Challenge Cup, a competition which adjusts points based on enrolled students.

Congratulations to the following students who were awarded Age Champions: –
Jacob Hale – 18 Boys, Eliza Davies  – 18 Girls, Adele Austin – 17 Girls, Brew Austin – 16 Boys.
