A week after the SNM Age Group Champs, Finella, Reuben, Rebecca, Ruby-Lou and Skye flew over the Wellington for the 2015 SNZ Junior Championships. This pinnacle event for 10-12 year olds was held at the Kilbirnie Aquatic Centre 20-22 February.
Coach Tim Loach said "It was a great weekend, and I was very proud of all 5 of our young swimmers who qualified for this event. They train and compete year-round to strive to qualify for Juniors so it was a great achievement for all of them! Plus we had a lot of fun too!"
Finella swam an amazing 200m free to finish 4th overall and came 7th in the 100m free whilst Rebecca placed 8th in the 50m breaststroke. Ruby-Lou and Reuben both swam pb's at the meet, and Skye swam just over her pb's. All of them enjoyed the experience! You'll see them poolside proudly wearing their Juniors t-shirts and hoodies :-)
