Congratulations to our team of 33 children Year 5-8 children who competed at the South Zone Swimming Champs on Thursday at Wharenui Pool. It was a new experience for many and quite a few of the children were nervous. All swimmers did really well and just to make it to this level was a big achievement.
There were some excellent performances from Hillview swimmers. Of note was Oliver Graves, winning his two events (9 years boys’ Freestyle and Breaststroke) and bringing the 9 years relay team into second place. Jessica Frost swam an exceptional race to win the 10 years girls’ Breaststroke. James McRae swam an intelligent race to win the 11 years boys’ Breaststroke and showed real strength and endurance to place 2nd in the Open 50m Butterfly. Maddie Morrow showed good style to win the 9 years girls’ Breaststroke and our 11 years relay team were champions – well done to Luke Mitchell, Eva Stark, Keight Copeland and Brendan Morgan.
