Midstream College took part in their second A- League Inter High gala held at Hillcrest pool in Hatfield on Tuesday 20th of February. The swimmers really did Midstream proud by finishing in 4th place overall in the combined boy’s and girl’s results, an improvement from last season when we finished in 5th place. We also won a total of 7 medals in the gala, an improvement from last season’s 3 medals. Congratulations to the following swimmers : Veronique Rossouw for winning 2 gold medals and one silver, Zane Smit and Michael de Beer one silver medal each and Mieke Van Zyl two bronze medals.
Following up on an excellent showing in this year’s A League Inter High gala many of our swimmers took part in either provincial galas or in the South African Junior National swimming championships. The star of the show was Veronique Rossouw who achieved an amazing 7 medals at the National championships. Veronique broke the existing South African National records for 100m Freestyle as well as Butterfly, a truly amazing achievement. Congratulations to Jolene Cornelius for qualifying for the Junior National swimming championships and on swimming her personal best times. The following swimmers were awarded provincial colours for open water swimming, Andro Smit and Mieke van Zyl, an excellent achievement. I would like to thank all swimmers and the staff involved in a very successful Inter High 2018 and we will continue to build for an even better 2019.
