Boys D and D Swimming Gala 2017

Sport - February 27, 2017


I write this with the utmost sense of pride as I looked back on the amazing talent I had the honour of witnessing. All our boys who participated in the D&D Gala held at Kings Park Swimming Pool can hold their heads high as they did their school exceptionally proud and achieved great success.
Crawford North Coast had the honour of hosting such a prestigious gala, but this put added pressure on the boys because they didn’t want to let their school down as they competed in the pool with 416 other eager swimmers.

We were the smallest squad of only 16 swimmers which consisted of Matthew Blackmore, Daniel Watson, Justin Coetzee, Kayden Robinson, Saien Naicker, David Park, Richard Ford, Luca Coetzee, Skye Steward, Jed Emond, Noah Peens, David Hepburn, Lewis Dixon, James Beningfield, Jagger Steward and Luke James.

We ended the gala in 3rd place and our U10 Boys Freestyle Ladder (Lewis, James, Luke and Jagger) broke the record by over 4 seconds. In each race Crawford Preparatory North Coast was able to leave the pool with pride. We were humble in victory and gracious in defeat.

Well done Crawford North Coast!!
