This week saw Somerset host both the Senior School Inter-House Swimming Carnival and the Junior and Senior APS Swimming Carnivals.
On Monday, 775 students gathered in our new pool grandstand and took part in our programme of 150 50m events and 50 25m events. Franklin House, once again, took out a tightly fought carnival (for the 4th consecutive year), with a win over Laver House, as 9 College records were broken. For a full list of Age Champions, see the Resources section of this article.
New College Records
Many thanks to Mr Forrest Butcher for his assistance in so many ways, particularly with his expertise in the software and timing system, the P&F for providing hospitality on the day and the staff of Somerset College for giving up their time to ensure that our students could compete to the best of their abilities. In addition, our Heads of House do an extraordinary amount of work, mostly behind the scenes in preparing their Houses for competition and involvement.
Keep an eye out in next week's Somerset Times for the full results from the APS Carnival, held this week.
Yukimaro has been selected in the South Coast Under 19 Boys Tennis Team. His Australian men's ranking has gone up to #286, compared to about #800 this time last year. Among those born in 2000 born, he is ranked 3rd in singles and overall (singles and doubles combined) 4th in Queensland at the moment. The top two boys are full time players who don't go to school, so he is the 1st in schools’ singles ranking.
Students will be notified shortly if they have qualified for the regional trials. These will be held on Monday 29 February and Wednesday 2 March (4.30pm to 9.00pm) at Southport.
If your son or daughter is injured at school sport, it must be recorded at the time by the College Nurse/medical person present if parents wish to apply through the College insurance policy. If delayed signs or symptoms arise over the weekend, students must notify the College Nurse on Monday morning.
