The blisteringly hot afternoon of Wednesday Sept 27, 2017 added buzz of anticipation and excitement as it was perfect for a dip in the pool. Hundred of students flocked to the poolside bleachers for the Inter house Swimming Competition as the top swimmers of all four houses retreated into the changing rooms to prepare for their share in bringing their Houses glory. The competition was organised for Junior, Middle and Senior wings.
Event after event saw a display of beautiful athleticism and sportsmanship as swimmers dove into the inviting water and speedily made their way through the length of the pool. There were moments of breath-taking sporting ability as some swimmers easily outstripped the others in the lanes next to them, as well as instances of nail-bitingly close finishes that could only be settled by the display of the timekeepers’ stopwatches. The clappers and splashes echoed throughout the swimming pool with enthusiastic swimmers diving in and climbing out of the pool.
After series of events like freestyle, backstroke, butterfly stroke, relay and medley, the resurgent Mercury House led by Aditya Singh was tied in first place as Overall Winner, whereas Mars House, Mercury House and Jupiter House came out as winners in Junior, Middle and Senior Category. These dolphins put the pool ablaze during this annual aquatic meet.
