2017 Inter House Swimming Carnival


Friday December 1 saw Years 7-12 descend upon HBF Arena Joondalup for the 2017 Inter House Swimming Carnival. After a fantastic 2016 campaign, Ozanam arrived fully determined to defend their title with Frayne, Salvado and McCormack equally determined create their own piece of history.

The carnival was competed in brilliant spirit, with the students from all Houses showing the willingness to compete and give their best effort.
Several records were broken on the day which indicates that the standard of competition was also very high. The students ability to compete against each other but then celebrate each other’s success was consistent throughout the carnival.
The Champion and Runner-Up Swimmers for each Year Group were as follows;

Equally as impressive was the House Spirit, atmosphere and overall participation from all students. The data from this carnival will be used to select the initial training squad for the ACC Swim Team, which will be announced early next year.
Finally a big thank you to the HCC staff for filling the various roles that make a carnival successful and to the parents for their fantastic support and assistance on the day.
This closes the chapter on Carnivals at HCC for 2017. We are looking forward to starting again in 2018.
