EISM Division 2 Swimming Carnival
On Tuesday 9 March Tintern Grammar competed in the EISM Division 2 Swimming carnival at Ringwood Aquanation. The students had trained well in squad training leading into the event and were confident in their abilities. There were some fantastic efforts from David Derham (Year 8) who swam even though he was injured, Leia Yeoh and Yi-Jen Hsu (Year 7) who swam two age groups higher than their own to ensure that we scored points in every race. The students swam extremely well on the day against strong opposition from Donvale Christian College especially. The carnival was extremely close all day with Tintern and Donvale exchanging the lead on multiple occasions. The carnival came down to the last few relay events. Congratulations to all of the students on the day for the fantastic result and to our swimming coach Graeme Stephenson, team manager Ms Upjohn, Ms Vine, Mrs Jurey, Mr Jurey, Ms Ord and our sport captains Harriet Rasmussen and Katey O’Reilly for their assistance on the day.
Congratulations to the girls for winning the overall girls’ trophy and the U/13 girls and U/16 boys for winning their age groups. Congratulations to Tintern Grammar students for winning the EISM Division 2 carnival and being promoted back into Division 1 in 2022.

On Tuesday 2 March Tintern Grammar held the annual House Swimming Carnival at the pool. After being rescheduled due to the most recent COVID-19 lockdown it was fantastic to get the house competition underway.
It was a cool morning as the girls’ carnival started but the house spirit and participation was fantastic right from the start. The noise was deafening as the girls cheered on their house peers, helping them swim their best. The carnival remained extremely close all morning with only 216 points separating first place from last place. It was great to see the students enjoying themselves and giving their best effort in both the swimming and novelty events.

Congratulations again to Brady in Year 7 on another very successful weekend at the Victorian Track and Field Championships. After placing first in the shot put, 100m and 400m at the first event, Brady has excelled further winning gold in the discus and 200m.
Brady has qualified for the Australian Athletics Championships in April and will represent Victoria across 6 events. This is also an Olympic qualifier event, however due to his age Brady is too young to qualify at this stage, he is currently undertaking the Athletics Australia Paralympic Pathway as a para-athlete who demonstrates the ability to compete in future Paralympic Games and WPA Championship events.
Congratulation to Mitch in Year 12 for his great performance at the State JM19 Track Championships and 123rd Austral Wheelrace Carnival.
Over the two events Mitch placed 1st in the 25km Points race, lapping the field. He also did well in several other races, placing 2nd in the Sprint race, 3rd in the Scratch race, 5th in the Melbourne Cup On Wheels (MCOW) race, 6th in the prestigious Austral Wheelrace and other top 5 placings.
Mitch’s top performance has resulted in him being selected for the Victorian J19 Track Team and he will compete at the Nationals later this month in Brisbane, good luck Mitch we are all cheering for you.
