Midstream College took part in their second A-league inter-high gala held at Hillcrest pool in Hatfield on Tuesday, 20 February. The swimmers really did Midstream proud by finishing in fourth place overall in the combined boys and girls results, an improvement from last season when we finished in fifth place. We also won a total of seven medals in the gala, also an improvement from last season’s three medals. Congratulations to the following swimmers: Veronique Rossouw for winning two gold medals and one silver, Zané Smit and Michael de Beer, one silver medal each, and Mieke van Zyl with two bronze medals.
Following 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 seven medals at the national championships. Veronique broke the existing South African national records for 100 m 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. Andro Smit and Mieke van Zyl were awarded provincial colours for open water swimming - an excellent achievement. We 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.
