Swimming Gala results

On Thursday our A Team swam in a gala hosted by Rondebosch Boys. We swam against 7 other schools and were placed second overall. Congratulations to all swimmers. Special mention must be made of Amy Worthington (Gr 9) who won the U16 Freestyle event and to the U14 medley relay team made up of Tyra Phipson, Anna Gray, Erin Daffarn and Rose Williamson (Gr 8s).


This past weekend, Juliana Barrish (Gr 8) played in the Inter-Zonal tournament and Juliana’s U14 team won the gold medals. Juliana also qualified as a top 8 player in the U16 Boland mini-series and has been invited to play in the Boland masters tournament in Strand  on 11-12 November. 

Congratulations on these fabulous results.
