Otago Swimming Meet

Last week 6 swimmers from TCAS (Austin Morrison, Astrid Morrison, Annabelle Wilson, Milly Lietze, Harper Melville and Kaiyo Nakajima) travelled to Dunedin for the Otago Primary School Swimming Champs. All swimmers swam 50m freestyle and 50m backstroke with Annabelle also swimming 50m breaststroke. They also took part in the 11 Year Old 200m Freestyle Relay with great success. The swimmers swam some amazing personal bests:

For the first time in many years, we had 2 swimmers qualify for finals - Milly Lietze in 50m free and Austin Morrison in 50m back. They swam impressively and represented TCAS with determination, showing our school values. All our swimmers trained for many hours leading up to the meet and the results show their hard work and dedication. We are very proud of all of them!

Otago Triathlon

Two teams were selected from their results at the recent South Otago Triathlon to compete in the Otago Triathlon.  Team TACS Tactix - Milly Lietze, Anashae Logie and Tim Magiera placed 6th in the Year 6 Mixed section and Team TCAS Gold - Flynn Lietze, Jack Walker and Kaiyo Nakajima placed 7th in the Year 8 Boys section, great effort by all involved.

Despite a postponement on Tuesday, the weather cleared enough for us to send four Year 3-6 teams to the Sport Clutha Football Tournament on Thursday.  

Reports back from some tired looking students on their return to school were they had some wins, some draws and some losses but most of all had a great time. 

Thank you to Kerri Nakajima, Amy Bradfield, Juliet Anderson, Chris Watt and Alyssa McDougall that helped with transport and team management.
