THERE WAS no stopping Deighton House from swimming away with yet another title at the Harrison College Inter-House Swimming Championships at the Aquatic Centre.

The challengers literally settled for the runners-up positions yesterday as Deighton House won with 758 points – 200 clear of their closest rival. Collymore House was second with 558 points, Armstrong House was third on 542.5 points while Dalton House was fourth with 266.5 points.

Despite finishing third, Armstrong House had the best two swimmers in the school. Danielle Titus was the victrix ludorum after picking up 60 points while the victor ludorum was Nkosi Dunwoody, who also picked up 60 points. Both swimmers also set six records.

Titus swam in the girls’ 13-14 division, and her first record of the day came in the 100 metre freestyle, which she won in 1:01.18 seconds – down from the old record of 1:02.06. She also set records in the 100 individual medley (1:10.02), 50-metre butterfly (30.12), 50-metre backstroke (31.18), 50-metre breaststroke (37.87) and the 50-metre freestyle (28.36).
