Wellington were too good for other North Island regions at the country’s biggest representative swimming competition on June 28.
The swimmers cleaned out each age group and collected a haul of trophies.
The annual competition, at Palmerston North’s Freyberg Pool, was between swimmers from all regional areas south of Hamilton.
Last year Wellington won just one category, for 11- and- under swimmers.
This year they were overall winners and finished more than 60 points clear of Taranaki. The team was headed by Tawa College breaststroker and Wellington emerging sportsperson of the year Ben Walsh, 17, who was one of several multiple national champions.
Three others, Jack Plummer and Danika Viskovic, both 11, and Chelsea Edwards, 13, won all their events.
A fourth, Joel Crampton, 12, picked up a Wellington record in the 100m butterfly, clocking a time of 1min 06.26s.
Team manager Fiona Pampalone said it was a great team effort.
