Seventeen members of the North Canterbury Swim Club attended the South Island Championships from 26th to the 28th September at Moana Pool in Dunedin.  Brigitte Mahan, Wai-Swim head coach, said "the swimmers did an excellent job.  There were quite a number of swimmers that stepped up to this level of competition and did extremely well.  The racing was strong and the new format that had been adopted allowed for the fastest 8, regardless of age, to go head to head in the final at night which made for great racing.  I was also thrilled that we were the 4th in the club points in the 11 members and over category. "
