EISM Division 1 Swimming

Congratulations to our EISM Swim Team who excelled in the Division 1 Carnival held at M.S.A.C on Tuesday 7 March. Tintern finished in third position behind Luther and Huntingtower.

The team’s performance was a fitting reward for their hours of early morning training and the commitment of our Swimming Coach Graeme Stevenson.

There were many fantastic individual performances by Tintern students and at least 30 students have qualified for the EISM Champions Meet on Monday 27 March 6.00pm at M.S.A.C.

Sporting Achievements

Congratulations to Corey Dickson (9D) who won the U/16 3,000m Walk at the Victorian Track and Field Championships last weekend. Corey’s win was even more amazing considering he had to back-up after a 3-day Year 9 hike along the Great Ocean Walk carrying a full pack. Corey has qualified for the Australian Junior Track and Field Championships in Sydney in late March and we wish him every success in his preparation and competition.

Congratulations to Mitchell McGovern (8E) who has been competing in the Victorian Interschool Cycling Series. Mitchell led all the way in Round 6 of the Junior ‘B’ Series event at Casey Fields for a comfortable win. Mitch leads the series with one event to go and we wish him every success in the final race at Caribbean Gardens on 26th March.
