A RECORD that has stood for 44 years
at the Korumburra Secondary College’s
annual swimming sports was broken in
spectacular style by young local represen-
tative swimmer, Sophie McKenzie.
Competing in the Under 13 breast-
stroke, Sophie smashed the old mark, set
way back in 1973 by Jan Goad, by almost
five seconds, an incredible effort over the
50 metre course.
But it wasn’t surprising to see Sophie
do so well.
Competing at the Victorian age cham-
pionships in December last year, Sophie
placed 11th at her best distance and
backed that up with a 4th swimming for
South Gippsland-Bass in the Victorian
Country Championships at Sale recently.
And the outcome not only delighted but
also amused her dad, Scott McKenzie,
who was watching on from the sidelines.
A real estate agent at Alex Scott & Staff
in Korumburra, he works closely with
Dean Goad, a cousin of the former record
holder and he was happy to take the new
bragging rights back to work with him.
It was an ideal day for the sports last
Wednesday, starting off a little cool in the
morning but then warming for some good
competition in the main events and plen-
ty of participation and fun in the novelty
events, which later in the day included the
traditional teachers’ race.
In the end it was ‘Gold’ house, Howitt,
(formerly McMillan) which won the day in
Students were suitably decked out in
their house colours, and outfits, but a
prize has to go to Mr Smith represent-
ing Whitelaw this year as ‘Blue Beard’ –
arrrrggghh - what-a-guy!
It was fantastic to see so many students
participating and cheering on their teams
by nut-bushing, doing the Macarena and
a conga line around the pool deck and
even dancing to a rendition of ‘Give Me a
Home Amongst the Gum Trees.
The Karaoke machine was working
in overdrive with Mr Morrison channel-
ling the late Davie Bowie in his knee-high
socks and classic blue denim, and female
school captains singing and sporting
Together with Sophie, for the second
year in-a-row it was Eric Zubcic of Strz-
elecki house who also broke a record.
Eric swam the U/16 Boys 50m breast-
stroke in a time of 35.39, beating (his
now SGB swimming coach) Dylan Muir’s
2006 record of 36.56.
“We are super proud of these students’
dedication to their swimming training,”
said a spokesperson for the school.
Congratulations go to the following age
champions this year:
• U13 boys Kodie Walker Howitt. U13
girls Sophie McKenzie Howitt.
• U14 boys Blake Webb Whitelaw. U14
girls Mackenzie Findlay Howitt.
• U15 boys Oliver McLean McDonald.
U15 girls Madeline Smith Strzelecki.
• U16 boys Eric Zubcic Strzelecki. U16
girls Casey Walker Whitelaw.
• U17 boys Nicholas McKenzie Howitt.
U17 girls Tiana Heylen Howitt.
• U21 boys James Downie Howitt. U21
girls Alana Hanegraaf Whitelaw.
Gold house Howitt was the overall win-
ners for the first time since 2001 with 630
points. This broke McDonald’s five-year
winning streak! Second place for McDon-
ald with 589 points, Whitelaw with 462,
and Strzelecki with 383 points. Well done
to all participants.
Finally, a huge thank you to sports co-
ordinator Ms Angela Croatto, again lead-
ing the teachers to a victory, with Mr Wil-
son, Mrs Matthews and Ms Hunter in the
staff versus house captains’ 4x50m relay.
Bring on the next house carnival!
