Two galas in KZN held over the weekend

2011-02-15 00:00

WESTVILLE is the powerhouse of swimming in KwaZulu-Natal, if not in the country. This was evident at two galas held over the weekend.

The first was held at Westville on Friday evening and the second was held at Kings Park on Saturday morning.

On Friday Westville beat Grey College­ into second place by 37 points.

The Allen Birt Top 10 Gala on Saturday saw Westville win by 68 points from second-placed Pretoria Boys’ High.

The Allen Birt Top 10 Gala is traditionally held on the Midmar Mile weekend so some of the swimmers from schools outside the province have a chance of swimming the Midmar­ Mile.

For a few swimmers it was an exhausting weekend as they had swum in both galas before swimming at Midmar.
