Congratulations to all swimmers who competed in a carnival. Despite our carnival being impacted by student absences, there was extremely high quality racing, with plenty of exciting finishes and IGSSA Sportswomanship on full display. Many of our swimmers raced in events they don’t usually race in, or in higher divisions. We thank you all for giving it a go and for racing in the spirit of the carnival. Without your “can-do” attitude, there would have been no carnival at all.
