New records set at SNM Age Groups meet

Fifteen new records were set at the SNM Age Groups meet held on 5, 12-13 February, including 5 new records by Ellie Rukuwai of Nelson South Swimming Club, 4 by Sara Gane of Blenheim and 3 by Fraser Neill of Nelson Swimming Club.

Nelson South took home the club honours, sweeping all of the club relays and total points, while Marlborough won the J G Bacon Memorial Cup for an inter-province relay. The Nelson province team finished first but was disqualified after an overly enthusiastic swimmer jumped into the pool prior to the Marlborough team finishing the race.

Fraser Neill of Nelson Swimming Club won the prestigious Marie Saul Cup for overall best swimmer, narrowly edging out Ellie Rukuwai of Nelson South.

Kaiori McGuinnety and Claire Cadwallader of Nelson South won the Adam and Eve relay.
