ST John’s DSG recently made swimming history by winning the first swimming gala of the season hosted by Epworth School, a gala they had never won before.

“The girls swam their hearts out. I knew we were going to be competitive, but I was blown away and bursting with pride when it was announced that they won,” said Cara Schirge, sports co-ordinator at St John’s.

The following week St John’s won the prestigious annual Dimont Gala at the Alexandra Baths in Pietermaritzburg, making it their second swimming victory in two weeks. The Dimont Gala attracts many great swimming schools from around the Midlands and upper highway regions.

St John’s DSG drew Kearsney College A Squad as their male swimming teammates and together, both schools dominated the rest of the field, winning in fine form. It has been many years since St John’s DSG has won the Dimont Gala trophy.

“I am unbelievably proud of our swimming girls; not just for winning, but because of their passion and determination to do their best,” said Schirge. - Supplied
