Swimmers fire up at the Warwick All Schools

SWIMMING: Caitlin Skaines and Tom Winter won the most outstanding swimmer awards at the Warwick All Schools Swimming at WIRAC.

Skaines (Assumption College ) and Winter (Scots PGC) were the age champions with the highest points and both won the Robert Reid Memorial trophies they also won in 2016.

The carnival 200m events were held on Wednesday afternoon with all shorter events on Thursday night.

Lily Osborne (Assumption) set three records for 12-year-old girls while Will Gilmore (Scots) set one record for 14-year-old boys and equalled another.

The all-schools carnival was a forerunner to the Darling Downs titles in Gatton (13-19 years) on Tuesday and Southern Downs titles (10-12 years) at Allora yesterday.

Scots PGC won the Allora P&C overall average trophy, calculated per capita.

Scots PGC also won the Barnes Cup (aggregate for boys 15 years and under) and Barnes Trophy (boys 16 years and over), the EJ Portley Memorial Relay Trophy (boys) and the Merv Lancaster Memorial Shield (open relays).

The Nell Foote Cup (girls and 15 years and under) aggregate was won by Assumption College.

Warwick State High won the EJ Portley Relay Trophy (girls) and Nell Foote Trophy (girls 16 years and over).

Carnival organiser Russell Craymer was grateful for the support of a lot of parents with timekeeping.

"The Warwick Swimming Club assisted with equipment and volunteers at the all schools carnival," Craymer said.

"It was a great social night with a lot of spirit from each of the schools."
