NZ Junior Festival - Aquaknights
What a great effort from Todd and our little team of juniors, competing in Rotorua last weekend finishing in third place on the points table from 19 clubs and also being the top Waikato team. The junior team were Brooklyn & Dominic Miller, Nathan Tebbutt, Jonty Shirreffs, Pippa Mihaka, Emily Steel, Paige Rameka, Rinoa Day, Te Wehi Mareikura and Camryn & Kemp Williams. They managed a 66% PB rate with each member gaining at least two PB's and won 20 medals from the 94 events. The medal winners were Pippa with two Gold and one Bronze, Te Wehi with two individual Silver and one team Gold, Jonty one Silver and two Bronze, Nathan one Bronze, Camryn and Brooklyn a team Gold each and last but certainly not least Kemp who amassed a whopping eleven individual medals with eight Gold and three Silver and also one team Gold. The team Golds were from a thrilling come from behind win in the 200m Freestyle clubs relay of which they ended up winning by a 3.55 seconds! All up an awesome effort from Todd and the team!...[more]
