The 2015 edition of the Inter-Hostel swimming competition was one of the most fiercely contested in the history of the school.
At the end of the day, the Trojans emerged as the undisputed champions with 135 points. This means they have won the swimming competition twelve years in a row. This is indeed a remarkable achievement.
The Spartans came second with 103 points, the Vikings placed third and the Titans took the fourth position. All four teams and their supporters invested a lot of enthusiasm and effort and should be commended.
Five swimming records were broken on the day.
- In the 4 x 25 m medley, Kwame Kwakwa, Alfred Nkonyana, Simeon Mark-Cofie and Challen Adu, (all Spartans) set a time of 1:06.56 mins to break the old record of 1:07.03 mins held by Ndowa Magaso, Philip Ofosu-Amaah, Simeon Mark-Cofie and Kwame Kwakwa (also Spartans), which was set in 2014.
