DIVISION 2 RESULTS

Mazenod College bounced back in emphatic fashion to clinch the Division 2 title after their relegation from Division 1 in 2017. With a final score of 431 points, they were well ahead of their main contenders in CBC St Kilda (368) and St Joseph’s Ferntree Gully (324.5). Emmanuel finished on 266, whilst Simonds finished on 162.5 but were once again able to claim the Most Improved Award for the schools with a student population of under 1000.


DIVISION 1 RESULTS

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).
