Short course champs bring out swimmers' personal best

During the September holidays, Kaitlyn Sosa and Boston Tordoff represented the St Paul's Swimming Club at the New Zealand Short Course Championships in Auckland.

Boston swam in eight events for the championships in the 14-year-old boys' category, swimming a personal best in the 200m individual medley. His best finishes came in the 200m breaststroke where he finished 5th in New Zealand and the 50m and 100m breaststroke events where he finished 6th in both events.

Kaitlyn swam six events in the very competitive 17 and 18-year-old age group swimming a personal best in the 200m freestyle. Her best results were in the 1500m freestyle where she won the bronze medal and the 200m freestyle where she placed 4th in New Zealand. A great effort by Kaitlyn.
