ACC Swimming Carnival 2018 — De La Salle College takes the Championship

On Friday 23 February the 2018 ACC Swimming Carnival was held at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre in Albert Park.

Captains Angus McLean and Ben Richter led a very strong squad under coaches Guy Eylon and Liam Kelliher and held a convincing lead against long-standing rivals Whitefriars.

Congratulations to the team and thank you to all who turned out on the night to cheer them on to victory!

De La Salle College has not achieved the ultimate success in ACC Swimming since 1996, but three individual and two relay records were enough to propel them into top spot in a supercharged Division 1 competition. With a final team score of 589, they were able to hold back an impressive Whitefriars squad (545 points) from achieving 5 championship wins in a row. St Bede’s finished in third on 503, ahead of St Bernard’s (477), Parade (464.5), St Joseph’s Geelong (442.5) and Salesian (369).”
