Epworth has enjoyed a successful swimming season and has triumphed in several galas involving Prep and High School pupils.
In the High School, the swimming team fared exceptionally well at the annual Champions Gala which pits the various teams in age-group competitions against each other. Epworth won three of the five age categories and accumulated the highest overall score, thus winning the Champions Gala. The winning age groups were: U/14, U16 and Open.
At the Senior Girls’ Gala, there was intense competition for the top three spots and Epworth finished third overall behind St John’s and TWC. Six Epworth girls were chosen for the uMgungundlovu district swimming team.
In the Prep School, the U13 girls’ team tied with TWC for first place in the relay event at the Seals A gala. Epworth came third overall. Five Epworth pupils were selected for the uMgungundlovu district primary schools’ swimming team. Congratulations to Melissa Martens and Amber Warr for their selection to the team for the Inter-provincial Club Level 3 gala, which will take place in Sasolburg in April.
