A First for Loreto Toorak in the Pool
It was a busy Term 1 in the water for Loreto Toorak, competing in the GSV Preliminary and Championship Carnivals and the GSV Finals, with some of the best results the school has ever recorded, culminating in the Victorian All Schools Relay where, for the first time, Loreto Toorak won the overall girls swimming.
The GSV Finals evening also saw outstanding results. Loreto Toorak placed second on the medal tally, taking home 8 Gold, 8 Silver and 2 Bronze medals on an evening where only individuals with the Top 10 fastest swimming times and the Top 10 best diving scores are selected to compete.
We congratulate all the swimmers and divers who competed and who showed great dedication, attending extensive weekly sessions and Personal Best Meets across the season. We thank the captains for swimming, Grace Sutherland and Louisa Pedley, the captain for diving, Catherine Ives, the coaches for swimming, Guy Eylon, Yuriy Burunov and Ellie Jaensch, and the coaches for diving, Dean Murphy and Sarah West for their tireless work, support and leadership.
