Thursday 6 April was a very wet day both outside and in the pool at the Selwyn Aquatics Centre in Rolleston. Cathedral Grammar swimmers were there, amongst the best Canterbury Primary Schools swimmers, representing Cathedral Grammar and the Independent Zone.The Grammar team had close podium finishes with Ben (less than 1 second from third), Finella ( less than 3 seconds from third) while Emily swum a personal best time. Although Noor finished the butterfly tenth, she was the second 11 year old, with the other swimmers who finished above her older. Vivien finished seventh in her breaststroke but was only 1 second behind third place. Unfortunately, Daniel, the Canterbury Age group champion had to be withdrawn due to a kidney infection but is on the road to full recovery.
