In week one of term 2 we had three girls represent Ao Tawhiti at the Canterbury School Swimming Champs. This is a great event with some of the best school aged swimmers in Christchurch.
We had Harriet Matthews competing in the Girls 14 50m backstroke, Jennifer Naughton in the Girls 15 50m breaststroke and the Open girls 100m breaststroke, and Lily Wildbore in the SWD girls open 50m freestyle and backstroke.
Jennifer placed 5th in the 50m breast where she competed up an age group and swam against girls older than her. She also placed 13th in the open breaststroke. Lily placed 2nd in both the freestyle and the backstroke.
All three girls represented Ao Tawhiti proudly, and showed great sportsmanship and courage.
