CAS Diving

It was with great anticipation that Trinity returned to SOPAC to defend the Stephen Barnett Shield, where in the face of a COVID pandemic in 2020 Trinity were victors.

Good preparation, with some excellent training and mentoring from Coach Ben On and Mille Marks, along with an inspiring pre-meet speech from Captain Zachariah Gindy (12Ke), meant spirits were high as we ventured to Homebush.

In the Junior Division, Trinity was very successful and did better than expected. While Barker College had the best diver in the division, it was Trinity‘s team performance that was impressive, taking out the division with 19 points. Peter Galanos (7St) was Trinity’s best diver on the night, finishing second, with Hamish Turner (7Ta) and Rory Flanagan (8Fo) finishing third and fourth respectively and Tom Huber (8We) picking up valuable point in eighth. These young men gave Trinity the much-needed lead in the junior division.

In the Intermediate Division, once again Barker had the best diver, but it was Trinity‘s team performance that shone through to win the division. Led by Lachlan Nguyen, who came second in the division, Cooper Vimpany (11Mu), Rory Flanagan (8Fo) and Joshua Leverton (9Ke) won the Intermediate Division by a point, setting up a very tense and tight final Opens Division. 

Our opens always knew that they were going to be up against it with three national level divers in the competition. Lachlan Nguyen (10WH) did very very well coming second, beating a number of older competitors. Unfortunately, too many high class divers separated Trinity’s other competitors and Barker came over the top in the final round. Henry Ward (11Du), Cooper Vimpany (11Mu) and Zachariah Gindy (12Ke) all put excellent efforts in, though our opposition were better on the night.

Congratulations to all boys who competed on the evening, including those that pushed our team across the season.
