St Patrick’s College continued their independent school dominance in the pool by completing a clean sweep of shields for the third year in a row.
At the Northern Sports Association of Tasmanian Independent Schools carnival in Launceston, St Pat’s won the junior and senior boys and girls, aggregate boys and girls and overall aggregate shields.
The event featured a top field of competitors from across the six Northern independent schools with eight records broken.
Volunteers from the local swimming clubs, Swimming Tasmania and a large band of parents and staff worked together to make the day a success.
