On the 2nd of April, more than 350 swimmers converged on Hamilton’s Waterworld for the 2019 Waikato Secondary Schools Swimming Championships.
There was some fantastic racing, culminating in Waikato Diocesan School for Girls taking out the Top Girls School and Hamilton Boys High taking out both the Top Boys School and the Top Overall School.
In addition, we witnessed eight individual Secondary School Records being broken, along with a further five Relay Records. Here are the details of these exceptional swims and a huge congratulations to the swimmers who were involved!
