Pukekohe swim team ex­cels

Franklin County News - - Sport -

The Pukekohe Swim­ming Club has re­turned from the New Zealand Divi­sion Two Cham­pi­onships in Ro­torua in third place.

The Sue Cheyne-coached team went into the four-day event with the aim of achiev­ing as many per­sonal bests as pos­si­ble and they came away with a 70 per­cent strike rate – the high­est rate in Coun­ties.

The re­sult of those PBs equated to mul­ti­ple medals and fi­nals plac­ings.

The stand-out in­di­vid­ual swim­mer was Jor­dan Smith who swam PBs in 10 of his races, achieved a na­tional meet record for the 50m breast­stroke, and qual­i­fied for the NZ Age Group Champs next year.

Other no­table per­for­mances came from Dil­lon Lo­gan – break­ing the Coun­ties Manukau record for the 50m but­ter­fly, Danni Brown qual­i­fy­ing for next year’s NZ Age Group Champs and Kirsty Des Lan­des mak­ing the big­gest jump up the rank­ings (24 places).
