by Dean Monaghan, Head of Athletics –
Last month, 23 CIS swimmers went to the International School of Phnom Penh in Cambodia for an international swim meet. Armed with a super supportive parent body and one determined coach, CIS won a total of 44 medals including 21 golds, 8 silvers and 15 bronzes. Although CIS had one of the smallest teams, we placed 6th out of 14 teams with Lanihei Connolly (9 – 10 year old girls) and Molly Laycock (15+ year olds) taking away Age Group Championships, followed by Ivan Martynyuk (9-10 year old boys) placing second and Lee Bradford (11-12 year old boys) placing third. A fantastic effort by all the swimmers.
Thank you to all the parents who came to support our CIS team. A very special thank you to Sean Mark for all the knowledge, support and enthusiasm he brings to the teams and Marc Lansu for organising a wonderful weekend away. Everyone left feeling tired but with big smiles on their faces.
Onwards and upwards Huskies!
