58th Annual Ngā Whakataetae Mō Ngā Manu Kōrero Taku Manu Kākātarahae, Taku Manu Taiko,…
Individual champs were a big success this year. Springs had six swimmers: Sam Kenny, Liam France, Koen Dettling, Tom Kenny, Tess Whineray and Abigail Sharp. Four of the swimmers medalled in their age groups.
In the 16 and over girls category, Tess Whineray took silver in the 200m Freestyle and Gold in the 100m and 200 m Backstroke. In the 16 and over boys category, Sam Kenny took Gold in both the 100m Butterfly and the 200m Individual Medley. In the Intermediate Boys 100m Freestyle Koen Dettling took silver and Liam France took bronze.
Looking forward to NZ Secondary Schools in Hamilton at the end of July and seeing our Individual swimmers and our relay teams in action!
Thank you to all the parents and to the team manager – Sandra Thomas who came out to support the team and also help out as officials for this major event.
Another major announcement, Tess Whineray has been selected for the Swim Team to represent NZ at the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Hawaii at the end of August. Tess is one of sixteen girls and seven boys who have been invited to compete based on their performances at the NZ Opens and NZ age group championships earlier this year. Wishing you all the best of luck Tess!
