Students Molly Downing (Year 11), Sascha Fox (Year 10), Madison Homewood (Year 9) and Tamon Smith (Year 13) returned from last weekend’s North Island Synchronised Swimming Championships with a staggering total of eight medals between them.
Molly Downing took out first place in the Aquanaut Solo category, Madison Homewood placed first in the Aquanaut Duet/Trios, and Tamon Smith (Year 13) placed third in the Aquarina Duet category and also third in the Aquarina Solos. All four students also took home silver medals in the Open Combo team category where Wellington placed second.
These were fantastic results from the team. Congratulations girls!
