Trinity News : April 2008
TRINITY NEWS 5 “Strive for Five” was the slogan for this year’s CAS Swimming Championships, and with what drive did our team strive as Trinity powered through the pool once more to gain the Thyne Shield for the fifth consecutive time! Though such a sequence is a record for Trinity, we still have some way to go before reaching the scores of Waverley and Knox, but on our present form, and with the solid basis we have, the achieving of such a score is looking possible! Our Divers, reinvigorated from last year, did also strive, in their case, for twenty-five, and regained the Barnett Shield for Diving, for the 25th time! Trinity did not score any fifth or sixth placings, but instead dominated the top four places consistently throughout the night, winning 45 of the 73 races on the night. The final score was 99 points ahead of Knox. It is becoming difficult for a commentator to find new words to depict the dedication and application of both the boys competing and the staff who organise and train them, together with the selfless contribution of the mothers and fathers who as taxi drivers, carers, supporters and encouragers do so much, so whatever superlatives our readers may think of, apply them to these heroic members of the School community! At the party celebration on Saturday night “Leckie,” “Brownie,” “Lammo,” “Joe,” and “Dobbsie” were all appropriately honoured, along with the members of the Squad who once again had risen to the challenge, doing themselves and their School a mighty honour! And yet, it cannot be emphasised enough that, amid all the celebrations, there was present a consciousness of the application of the School motto, Detur Gloria Soli Deo. Our health and strength and life itself are gifts freely given us by God, and it is most appropriate that we use them in acknowledgement of this fact. | Ron Ogier 6 8 9 11 12 7
