I wish to apologise to Max Hewitt (Year 8), Daniel Spyrou (Year 7) and families for an error published in the most recent copy of ‘What’s Happening at Saints’.

The article should have acknowledged Max Hewitt as the new U/13 Butterfly record holder. The error was made when SA Aquatic Centre staff uploaded our data into their program leaving one qualifying swimmer out and therefore placing other swimmers into lanes that did not match up with our marshalling sheets.

I congratulate Max on his achievement of setting four new age group records; an amazing feat!

In correcting point scores to reflect the error made:

  1. Age Champions, Runners Up remain unchanged
  2. The ‘New Record’ with the required amendment has been included in Table 1 below.
  3. The Junior House Cup winner remains unchanged while Howard and MacDermott’s finishing placings switch. Refer to Table 2 below.
  4. The overall House Champion, Junior and Senior House Cup points combined, top three placings remain unchanged with the change in point scores reflecting the required changes to Junior House point scores. Refer to Table 3 below
