IGSA Sport returned to Sydney Olympic Park on the 31st March for our annual swimming and diving championship. It was wonderful to welcome parents back as spectators to our major carnivals. As always, the standard of competitors thrived within the interschool competition, with coaches and staff commenting on the continued quality of performance.  In particular, the standard of IGSA diving is of the highest level in memory with less than 100 points splitting top and bottom places. We commend our schools for the continued development and increased depth of talent across all competitors in both the swimming and diving.

IGSSA’s Inaugural Representative Rowing VIII’s

IGSSA’s Inaugural Representative Rowing VIII’s

On the 13th February, 19 students made up the inaugural IGSSA representative rowing VIII’s to compete at the PLS/Kings Regatta led by coaches Ciarán Glynn (QUE) and Ali Williams (PYM).

The First VIII finished third and the Second VIII finished fifth in their respective races. We are confident that the girls have taken the first steps in contributing to the start of a legacy that will last far longer than our time. We would like to congratulate the girls and their coaches for being part of the 1st Chapter.

Mary Webster

Get to know the women behind the overall champion school trophy at the IGSSA swimming championship.

In 2019 the IGSSA overall champion trophy will be named in honour of Mary Webster.

If you are unaware of Mary’s history with IGSSA, she worked for the association from 1983 - 1999 and has continued to assist with our representative pathways through her role at NSWCIS where she currently works in a sports administration role.

Mary is a wonderful friend to the association and a personal role model. I am inspired by her dedication to creating sporting opportunities for students of all levels but mostly I admire the extensive kindness she shows to everyone and the feeling of warmth that creates within our sporting community. We feel very privileged that Mary will be attending our swim and dive championship next Friday 22nd March, 2019.

As a former Pymble student we feel very lucky to embrace her as a friend of the association and I hope you enjoy the opportunity to read about her in the interview below.
