Records Tumble As Westville Boy's Win IP Gala


Traditionally, the Friday night of the Midmar weekend is always an exciting swimming evening at Westville Boys' High School and this year was no exception.  This is the evening that KZN Schools get a chance to swim against schools from around the country who are in KZN to compete in the Midmar Mile.

On a driving range near you, a budding young golfer rushes home, eager to catch a glimpse of Tiger Woods; even if it's simply on T.V. In the blink of an eye, the selfsame rookie contests a playoff at St. Andrews. A promising tennis player punishes the wall of the town's tennis club, mimicking a Roger Federer cross-court backhand.

Westville - SA's Undefeated Swimmers



For the second year in a row Westville Boy’s High have swum their hearts out and ended the 2009 season unbeatable in every gala that they competed in.  It is an impressive record that encompasses a variety of disciplines in the water and across all age groups. From winning the KZN Top 10 Gala where they broke 11 records to winning the schools section of the Midmar Mile for an astonishing 15th year with 4 WBHS swimmers finishing in the Mens top 20. With such depth in their swimming team they have been able in recent years to have had Chad Ho swimming at the 2008 Olympics as well as Chad le Clos and Leith Shankland winning gold medals at the Commonwealth Youth Games and World Youth Games respectively.
