Petronax House Swimming Champions

​​​What a start to the year it was at the 2020 St Benedict’s College Inter-House Swimming Carnival with a record number of students in the stands and in the pool. The rain held off with records tumbling down instead in what was a competitive and also, really enjoyable day for all involved​.

Thanks to the inspirational leadership from our 2020 Student Leaders, the noise coming from each House group in the stands throughout the day was deafening and when the whole College came together to belt out the school war cry as one, the roof of the grandstand looked dangerously close to flying off!

On the back of the leaders efforts, it was nice to see so many students both competing in Championship events and gaining points for their houses in the participation races and relays. The day finished with an epic handicap race, the “Bennie’s Bull Shark” which was taken out by 16yr girl Abby Hanson who just pipped Finlay Dale (12yrs girl) at the line after giving an 8 second head start.

Congratulations to Petronax House who broke the Maurus/Scholastica Swimming stranglehold to win their first swimming carnival.
