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. Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
