This event is a highlight of the national swimming calendar attended by 573 swimmers representing 147 secondary schools from across the country. 

 

Ben Turner swam very well achieving personal bests in all five of his races, as did Harvey Williams. Ben also qualified to swim 100m backstroke at the Div 2 Champs in Rotorua next March and Alexandra Ludbrook swam a qualifying time for 50m backstroke at Div 2 next year.
