SCIS Hongqiao swim gala
15 October 2016
And the season has begun. After 7 weeks of training, after the return to school from the summer holiday, the College swim team was in action over the weekend in the first big competition of the year. Two very early starts over the weekend saw the under 10s group in action on Saturday. Sunday was the turn of the 11s and older swimmers. It was an action packed program with swimmers from Wellington competing at SCIS as part of the Shanghai Swim League. We had our Agnes winning all of her races and winning 3 individual gold medals and one bronze in the relays. She won the overall best swimmer trophy for the 11 and 12 Age group. Jade won 3 silver medals in her individual events and one bronze in the relays. Tommaso won 3 silver medals in his individual events rating him 3rd overall for his age group 11 and 12 years old. Damian won 1 gold and 1 silver in his individual events. Tommaso won a silver and Anna Qi won a bronze on the day. Natalie and Aimee won a bronze in their respective relay race along with Jade Franetzki and Agnes Yu. Wellington came 3rd overall for the 13-14 Boys and 4th in the Girls and Boys 11-12. For some of our swimmers, this was their first ever meet, huge congratulation to Julian, Audrey and Carol for all their hard work in training and their efforts over the weekend.
