Off with a splash. Wednesday 26th March saw Taradale Intermediate competing in the Hawkes Bay swim champs at Flaxmere swimming pool. There were 10 schools competing and a lot of fun had by all. Winning results occurred on the night with: Taradale Year 8 boys and girls coming first in a medley relay with Ollie, Matthew, Kirk and Hamish in the boys team with a time of 1:05; and Natalya, Sophie, Kate and Kimberly in the girls team with a time of 1:11.
We also had the Year 7 boys and girls gain 3rd in their medley relay with Hannah, Emma, Nanique and Susanna in the girls team with a time of 1:17 and Bradly, Carwyn, Campbell and James in the boys team with a time of 1:23.
In the overall results we did really well with our Year 7 and 8 girls coming first in their division, Year 8 boys coming first in their division and Year 7 boys coming 3rd. Everybody had a great time.
