Medals for our swimmers
It’s been an amazing couple of days for our team at the New Zealand Secondary School Swimming Championships in Hamilton – with Kaia Swiggs bringing home a silver medal and Rebecca Wilkins winning two bronze.
Daria Barbino only narrow missed out on the medals – and the trio all achieved personal bests.
Well done girls!
