Inter-high diving and swimming

The inter-high diving was held on Tuesday 3 March at Parktown High School for Girls. Our girls were superb and dived with calm composure and poise.


Special congratulations to two of our U15 competitors who came 1st and 2nd respectively. In the U16 division, despite a back injury, our top U16 diver managed a 3rd place. In the Open division, fighting off some tough competition we managed to win the event. Our captain was in excellent form and earned 4th place. These outstanding results saw us retain the inter-high diving trophy:

St Mary’s 109

Kingsmead 82

Pretoria 77 

St Andrew’s 67

Parktown 59 

Brescia 58

Roedean 56

St Stithians 55

St Teresa’s 35

St Dominic’s 20

These points were then halved and added to the swimming scores at the Premier gala to determine who wins the overall trophy.

Thursday dawned bright and sunny and remained so for the entire day. Just as well as for the first time in history, owing to a concert at Ellis Park and the precinct being out-of-bounds from 06h00 on Saturday 7 March, both the Premier and A- inter-high galas had to take place on one day.

The U15 medley relay team are congratulated on breaking the record. Another highlight of the day was our victory in the Open freestyle relay where all girls swam 28s and earned a comfortable win.

Our B team swam superbly in the A inter-high gala during the afternoon and earned a convincing victory.
