Year 11 student Sophie Lewis was selected to represent the Central North Island – Waikato, BOP, Hawkes Bay and Taranaki teams, called the Aqua Knights at the NZ Zonals in Auckland on Sunday 8th February.
She was chosen to swim for the 15 years and under team in the 50 metre and 100 metre freestyle and also two freestyle relays.
The competition was tough and she did herself proud. The competition was also televised on Sky Sport 4 which added to the tension but Sophie overcame that and swam extremely well.
Great work Sophie!
