ISD Swim Team at Club Atlantique

Those early morning training sessions paid off for lots of our swimmers last Saturday!  Coached by Noah Balazs and Murray Te Huki, this enthusiastic team showed their skills and speed in a very exciting intra-mural competition with over 30 races.  Parents attended in great numbers and also supported the swim team as timers, runners and announcers.  Thanks to all who were there to encourage our swimmers!

Another meet will be held on the 19th of November, with SABS, Dakar and EAB participating. (Note the change from 12th to the 19th)-To be confirmed.

Many of the team will travel to AIS Lagos, Nigeria for a WAISAL meet in early December.  We wish them the best of luck!
