Making a Splash at Swimming Sports
Minimbah Team Swimming Carnival
On Wednesday 9 March all students in years 3 – 6 travelled to Mornington Secondary College to take part in the annual Team Swimming Carnival. A great day was had by all competing in boogie board, noodle, kick board and freestyle races. The most hotly contested event of the day was in fact the last which was the Year 6 open freestyle relay. In a nail biting finish the Blue Sea dragons narrowly defeated the Green Stingrays resulting in back-to-back championship wins for the Sea Dragons.
Well done to all the students for their fantastic efforts.
The final scores were:
Blue Sea dragons – 284
Green Stingrays – 262
Red Sharks - 245
Gold Barracudas – 223
