Swim Meet at Gems Academy

02 October 2018

On Tuesday 2nd October we had 13 strong swimmers travel to GEMS Academy in Morges. Our swimmers were made up of Year 5 and 6 students and formed 3 relay teams. The following students participated; Paul, Jamie, Jonathan, Jason, Milo, Max, Celia, Gabriela, Oliver, Jonjo, Jame, Alice, Hannah.

In the much-anticipated relay events, the girls came 2nd in the U11 200m freestyle (Gabriela, Hannah, Alice and Celia) while the U11 boys team had a fantastic win over ISBerne with Oliver, Jonjo, Paul and James putting in a great time to take victory. The boys U9-10 finished in 4th place with Jamie, Jason, Jonathan and Milo competing in the final event of the day for us.

Individually we had some exceptional results. Hannah was our first competitor in individual races and came 2nd in U11 girls 50m backstroke. James put in a really good team to take the win in U11 50m backstroke while Oliver came 2nd in his heat. Paul Francois managed to take the win in 3 out of his 3 races in U9-10 boys 25m backstroke, butterfly and freestyle. In the freestyle event he was closely followed by Milo in 2nd and Jamie in 3rd.

In the girls U11 50m freestyle Alice did really well to hold onto 2nd place and again the same position for 50m butterfly. In boys U11 50m Freestyle we had 2nd places from Oliver and Jonjo with James taking 3rd place. In boys U9-10 breaststroke we had 3 St. George’s boys compete against each other alongside GEMS and ISL with Max placing 2nd, Jason placing 3rd and Jonathan placing 4th. Finally Milo and Jamie both swam with great times to take 2nd place in Boys 9-10 25m butterfly in their respective heats. A really big well done to all involved and a huge thank you to Mr. Francois who makes our swim team possible. We really appreciate his work with the team. Our next swimming event is Tuesday 30th October with senior school students.
