Swim­mers dive in to se­cure shield

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Strath­more School took out this year’s Ac­tive Kids In­cen­tive Swim­ming Shield at the In­ter­school Swim­ming Sports in Toko­roa.

It was a buzz for Toko­roa pri­mary school stu­dents who raced their hearts out in this year’s In­ter­school Swim­ming Sports.

As well as aim­ing to win their own races, the swim­mers were vy­ing for the Toko­roa Ac­tive Kids In­cen­tive Swim­ming Shield which was do­nated by Team En­er­gize and spon­sored by Thomas Jew­ellers.

Sport Waikato en­er­gizer Taki­moana Morehu- Cook­son said­points were tal­lied up to de­ter­mine a new win­ner this year.

‘‘ Last year’s win­ners, Am­is­field, were keen to hold on to it but it was taken out in a very close race by Strath­more.’’

Morehu- Cook­son wanted to thank For­est View High School Kiwi Sport lead­ers and a group from Te Wananga o Aotearoa who helped run the event.
