Victorian Short course Championships (4-6 September 2015)

This year’s Victorian Short Course Championships were one of the most successful state championships in GenAquatic history. Two and a half years ago, Sam McDonald was GenAquatic’s first and only state competitor, swimming the 50m Freestyle. This year we had four swimmers in 15 events with nine races in the finals. Nearly every race, each GenAquatic swimmer performed a personal best time. Congratulations and well done to all the swimmers who swam at MSAC on the weekend.

Track and Field

The 2015 GSV Track and Field season has drawn to a close. There were many highlights that occurred in a short, busy season. With three training sessions taking place weekly from the start of Term 3, students were committed to attending as many of these sessions to improve their performance and increase their chances to qualify for GSV carnival selection.

This team encountered many challenges this season; however, a strong team of over 70 students competed at both Preliminary and Championship carnivals producing many personal bests and competition records. The Intermediate team claimed first place at the Division Two Championship Carnival. Students from this team were then entered into the Athletics Victoria All Schools Track and Field Relay Championship with the Under 18 team winning bronze in the 4 x 100m relay.

The GSV Finals Evening concluded a terrific season and this was reflected in the results with 18 medals won, an outstanding performance!

We would like to thank our coaching team, who without them this season would not have been possible. Monica Clarke, Ben Ashkettle, Grace Kalac, Emily Goessler, Grace Evans, Manny Dalla Costa and Cass Dalla Costa dedicated their time to help and organise students at training sessions and carnivals.

Due to the large squad numbers we are unable to highlight individual performances. A full set of results can be found on the GSV Results website.

We look forward to seeing all students participate in the 2016 House Athletics Carnival so we can build and develop a formidable Track and Field culture at Genazzano.
