Hillcrest Swimming Success

This was a 3 day swimming championship organised by the Kenya Swimming.Federation. With 2300 entries from over 30 clubs, Schools & colleges within Kenya and East Africa, it was the biggest swimming event in Nairobi this year. Hillcrest was represented by; Alexandra who won Silver in 100m backstroke, 2 bronze medals in 50m backstroke & 200m backstroke. The relay team of Maya, Furaha, Nicole & Alexandra won 2 bronze medals in 4 x 50m Freestyle and in 4 x 50m Medley relays. It was amazing to watch these swimmers, some of whom were competing in a fifty meter swimming pool for the first time. Gray, Damon and Jason were the only boys and part of the Hillcrest team who gave good account of themselves in the championship. They all swam personal best times and scored well for the team which came 11th overall!
