Top 8 Gala

March 23, 2017

On Saturday, 18 March 2017, twelve of our Herbert Hurd swimmers participated in the Top 8 Championship Gala at Newton Park Swimming Pool. The Top 8 Gala is the culmination of the season’s B-league galas where the top 8 swimmers in each age group and each stroke are selected to participate. Swimmers who achieved a Level 3 time during the season are not included in the Top 8 Gala.

 

Our morning started with our 12 swimmers marching around the Newton Park Pool proudly displaying our school flag. Throughout the morning, our swimmers gave their best and can be proud of what they have achieved this season and the times which they have improved upon.

 

The following swimmers received medals throughout the gala. You have made Herbert Hurd very proud!

Well done to Jayden and Justin Agnew who were selected for all four strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. We are also proud of Emma Thiersen, Ryan Thiersen, Jason Panday, Keri Brooks and Brydon Pienaar who participated in the Top 8 Gala.

 

To conclude the gala, Herbert Hurd were once again the proud recipients of The ‘Nelson Mandela Bay Aquatics Executive Trophy’ for the Top 8 Co-Ed School with the most participants at all B-age group galas. This is the third consecutive year in which we have won this trophy and we will continue to aim for excellence and full participation in the following season.

 

Well done, Herbert Hurd!
