Scots swimmers win trophies

A TEAM of 40 swimmers from Scots PGC College competed at the The Associated Schools Swimming carnival held at Chandler last Thursday.

As one of the smallest schools in the TAS competition, Scots PGC gave the larger Brisbane schools a run for their money, placing second in the Red division overall aggregate.

Missing one of their team captains, Tegan Warrener, due to her commitments competing at Commonwealth Games trials, the team was hoping to be able to hold on to the four trophies they won last year.

Head of PE Brooke Stockham said all swimmers competed well in both individual and team relays. “The college won a total of six trophies, which is fantastic,” she said.

Year 11 student Matthew Kanowski won every individual and team relay he competed in.

“Credit must go to all students who attended the morning swimming training. Next year they hope to place first in Red division, which will mean they will be promoted to Blue division,” Stockham said.
