Swimming Sports at Saint Kentigern Boys’ School recently came to an exciting close after four days of intense competition finishing with Years 3 and 4 on Monday, and Years 5 and 6 on Tuesday. The school community highly anticipates these full-school sports events. The boys did not disappoint, showcasing their skills and talents in all strokes over various distances. Each day of competition culminated with announcing the year group champions, who emerged victorious after performing exceptionally.

In the Year 3 category, the champions were William Liu from Wishart in first place, Charles Cashmore from Hamilton in second place, and Sebastian Dow from Chalmers in third place. In Year 4, Kelvin Sun from Hamilton was crowned champion, followed by Allen Liu from Chalmers in second place, and Charlie Nicholls from Chalmers in third place.

In the Year 5 category, Brayden Zha from Cargill emerged as the champion, closely followed by Jeffery Chen, also from Cargill, in second place, and Jeremy Wu from Wishart in third place. In the Year 6 category, William Gascoigne from Cargill claimed the top spot. Austin Chen from Chalmers took second, and Joshua Qu from Wishart secured third.

These boys swam incredibly well, but the event’s highlight was William Gascoigne’s impressive performance in the 25m Backstroke. The Year 6 winner from Cargill House broke the school record in this event, finishing in a remarkable 18.18 seconds. The feat was an impressive testament to his hard work and dedication to the sport.

The event was not only a platform for the boys to showcase their swimming abilities but also an opportunity for them to demonstrate their sportsmanship, teamwork, and resilience. The support and encouragement they received from their peers, teachers, and parents were displayed through loud house chants and cheering as they stood up to dive.

Congratulations to all the participants, and with the Remuera Zone competition just around the corner, we can’t wait to see what the next round brings.
