Kia ora te whanau o te kotuku Earth school – The school for our lifetime.…
We had 17 students representing Rutherford College at West Wave on Monday, 18 March for the Central Western Zones.
There were large numbers of swimmers at this event battling it out in the water in a very tough competition.
The events began at 10am as the competitors took to the pool rearing to go, although slightly nervous with a lot of serious swimmers competing. The butterfly was up first and Andrew Young finished 4th overall in the intermediate boys he also came 4th in the intermediate boys freestyle. The backstroke was the third stroke of the day and we had Theo Robb Markham finishing 2nd and the junior girls had an overall total of 31 in their race so they all did very well in this tough competition.
We had two relay teams competing in the freestyle 4 x 50 metres. The Junior girls, consisting of Elaina Ellison, Emma Chapman, Piper Black and Leila Skinner, finished 4th and the Senior boys, consisting of Johnnie Richard Marsters, Eri Reddington, Andrew Young and Dominik Bonkovich had a good battle to finish 2nd.
Well done to all those that competed.
