In 2018 Kingsway won the E Division Swimming Carnival and that put us up a division to the D Division for this year. The jump to D Division was a big jump as it moved us from the outdoor pool to the big leagues in the indoor pool with fancy things like individual competitor names on the electronic scoreboards. The move to the indoor pool also gave us the opportunity to take a group of student supporters with roughly 100 Kingsway students volunteering to go along and cheer on their classmates.
Our 2019 Squad was comprised of 68 competitors who put in many hours of training before school in preparation for the 2019 ACC Carnival which was held on Thursday 22nd March at the HBF Stadium indoor pool.
Kingsway performed unbelievably across the whole day and never left the top position to eventually take out 5 out of the 7 team shields available including the Overall Carnival shield.
