Team Yacaaba won the overall point score for the second year in a row, doubling the score of the nearest rival being Stephens followed by Tomaree and Nelson. The age champions were 12 years: Campbell Stewart and Ebony Nix; 13 years: Jake Herdegen and Anekah Sargeant; 14 years: Aiden Tyacke and Charlie Webb; 15 years: Brady Stewart and Claudia Samoilenko; 16 years: Angus Tonks and Logan Stewart; 17+ years: Ben Anderson and Emily Kenny. There were an incredible 12 records broken at the carnival. Ebony Nix broke 8 individual records, some by over 20 seconds, one of which had stood since 1988. Aiden Tyacke broke one, Logan Stewart two and the Yacaaba 17+ 4 x 50m girls relay also broke the previous record. Toby Fraser won fame and the Belly Flop event followed by Dylan Lawrence and once again the teachers beat the house leaders in the relay. Tomaree High School’s Jim Papworth told News Of The Area, “The kids have been fantastically behaved and there have been some great swims.” The school is expecting Ebony Nix to be among the students that will compete at the Regionals.
