Auckland Secondary Schools Aquathon Championships
On Wednesday 16 February, six members of the School’s Aquathon squad travelled to St Kentigern College to compete in the Auckland Secondary Schools Aquathon Championships.
The weather made for favourable race conditions. In particular, the water conditions were near perfect for the swim leg. The run course was flat and mostly straight, making for quick times and an exciting day of racing.
All races saw fierce competition from other schools this year, but Auckland Grammar students held their own to finish respectably throughout the day.
Congratulations to all students who took part, but credit especially to Form 3 student C. A. S. Forsyth who placed first overall as an individual in the Junior race and Form 4 student K. J. Moyle who was seventh in the Junior race.
Congratulations also to the following students on their top 10 placings – Form 5 students L. S. Gibson (fourth), H. P. Klouwens (seventh) and Form 4 student Y. C. Y. Chan (ninth) in the Intermediate race and Form 7 student C. J. Stewart was seventh in the Senior race.
