Swimming success for Pukekohe High
Over 80 schools attended from around New Zealand and Pukekohe High School took a team of nine swimmers to the championships.
The girls came fourth nationally and the boys came sixth.
The team, along with coach, Sue Cheyne, and team manager, Karen Dell, had a fantastic meet, with plenty of personal best scores met and six New Zealand meet records broken.
The final event of the weekend was the 4 x 50 mixed IM relay, swum by Rebecca Cheyne, Zac Dell, Abi Chapman and William Hughes.
They took out a resounding win and a NZSSC meet record, which was described as a fantastic way to finish.
The team swam with determination, with some of the races finishing so close, only split seconds separated first and second place getters.
“It was an exciting and highly successful meet for our team,” says Coach, Sue Cheyne.
