Thomas Kyle and Issac Boorer-Lilly crowned champions at TBHS Swimming Sports

This year’s swimming championships were held at the school pool in cool, blustery conditions on Thursday the 23rd of February.

The Senior events were hotly contested between Year 12 Alex Tudgey and Year 13 Thomas Kyle. Kyle by virtue of 4 titles (50, 100 and 1500 metre Freestyle as well as the 50 metre Breaststroke) took out the mantle of Senior Champion from Tudgey who won the 50 metre Backstroke and Open Butterfly races as well as the 200 metres Freestyle. Year 11 Lachlan Crawford added to the competitive nature of the Senior finals with numerous minor placings.

In the Junior Championship Year 9 Issac Boorer-Lilley and Year 9 Bruno Resende also fought out several tight finishes. Both took out two titles Boorer-Lilley in the 100 and 200 metre Freestyle and Resende in the 50 metre Freestyle and Backstroke. By virtue of an extra minor placing Boorer-Lilley took the overall title.

 The Champion house went to Dawson while the prefects in spite of a stirring final leg by Mr Doyle narrowly prevailed in the Staff versus Prefects relay.

Having also taken victory at the Athletic sports Mr Dominikovich has called an impromptu emergency crisis meeting for the staff.

The annual TBHS swimming sports were held in fine conditions on the 17th of February.

In the Junior Championship Lachlan Crawford was the dominant performer. He picked up titles in the 100 and 200 metre Freestyle events as well as in the 50- metre Breaststroke. His strongest competition throughout the day came from Jack Parry and Jack Bennett who beat Crawford into 2 nd place when picking up titles in the 50 metre Freestyle and Backstroke races.

The Senior Championship was notable for its competitiveness which led to several exciting finishes. Year 12 student Thomas Kyle with wins in the 100 and 200 metre Freestyle, along with the 50 metre Backstroke was just able to hold off Alex Tudgey of Year 11 to be named overall Senior Champion. Tudgey also took out a hat-trick of titles in the 50 and 1500 metre Freestyle and 50 metre Butterfly events. Benson Arnold and Jack Boorer-Lilley also performed with credit with Arnold claiming a title in the 50 metre Breaststroke.

Hogben took overall honours as the Inter-house competition and these sports may also have been significant as the swansong for perennial MC Deputy Rector Rodney Sparrow.

Arnold and Tudgey performed well in the shorter course events with Arnold taking out the 50 metre freestyle and breaststroke while Tudgey prevailed in the open 50 metre butterfly. Kyle was dominant over the longer distances in sweeping the 100, 200 and 1500 metre freestyle events from Tudgey and Arnold.

To the chagrin of Mr Sparrow, Hogben were the winning House, beating Tait by a mere 4 points in the Inter-house competition.

Thomas Kyle and Matthew Moore were crowned Junior and Senior Champion respectively at the annual TBHS swimming sports held in ideal conditions at the school pool on Thursday 13 February.

Kyle set new junior records in the 50 metre freestyle (27.0 seconds), as well as the 100 (59.80 seconds) and 200 (2mins 10.6 seconds) freestyle events. He also established a new mark in the 50 metre breaststroke of 35.00 seconds.

Moore emerged from the shadows in recent years of Riley Taylor and Jack Sands to dominate across the Senior events. A number of his times were only fractionally behind the records established by both these young men.

To the delight of Deputy Rector Rod Sparrow, Tait were the winning house in 2020.
