Mark Lile, Team Manager for Nelson South reports on the recent South Island Country & Town meet:
The SIC&T Meet was held at Ashburton's very impressive AE Stadium on the 28th and 29th February 2016. A small NSSC Team including Angelina Johnston, Hannah Martin, Reuben Lile, Cate Barton and Adam Barton attended. While our team was small, we made our presence felt with our typical vocal support and results. Excellent parent support was also on hand from Mike and Jo Johnston, Tanya and Jeremy Barton and Jane Martin.
Overall, in terms of individual events, we walked away with 3 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze placings and plenty of pb's. Two additional bronze placings (Hannah and Adam) were achieved by the Nelson-Marlborough relay teams in the 200m medley events.
The highest achiever in the team was Reuben Lile who came away with 3 golds and 2 silvers. Reuben's medal haul has again confirmed his strengths in the breaststroke and freestyle events.
Both Adam and Angelina also achieved individual 3rd place medals; Angelina placed 3rd in the girls 13-14 years 200m backstroke and Adam took out 3rd place in the 10 and under 100m breaststroke. Great effort!
Aside from the above silverware, there were numerous top 10 placings which added to the overall results.
