Back in March NSSC sent a group of 8 swimmers to the New Zealand Division 2 meet in Dunedin.

Well done to all the team that went, but special mention to our newest swimmers qualifying & attending a National Meet - Adam Barton, Alex Grenfell & Connor Eden! It was a huge achievement to qualify for this premier NZ meet and our swimmers have done Nelson South and themselves incredibly proud! Nelson South, with only 8 swimmers, finished a very respectable 12th out of 75 clubs from all around New Zealand!!

There were some huge PB's and the following swimmers achieved a 100% PB rate for the meet:

  • Rebecca Loach
  • Connor Eden
  • Maggie Goomes
  • Oxford Bayley

To make a final at a National Meet is another massive achievement as only the top 8 from each age group make it through to the finals in the evening, so congratulations to the following swimmers:

  • Oxford Bayley
  • Maggie Goomes
  • Nic Hall
  • Rebecca Loach
  • Ilaria Old

Finally - the team also managed to bring home some bling! Congratulations to:

  • Nic Hall - 3 Golds
  • Maggie Goomes - 1 Gold, 1 Silver
  • Rebecca Loach - 1 Gold, 2 Bronze
  • Oxford Bayley - 1 Silver, 1 Bronze
