The swimming season runs from January to March each year, with some pre-season training taking place from September . The Jeppe swimming team is made up of approximately 40 swimmers from all grades and they participate in the Johannesburg Girls B Inter-High School League.

Inter-House Gala

The 2018 Inter house gala was a very eventful day, with some unexpected results.  The matrics looked amazing in their inspired costumes – Harveya were Prisoners, Disa were Starbucks. Nerine (Tweety) and Protea (Police) revisited 1998 for inspiration. Crassula were Wildcats (High School Musical) and Gerbera were Boxers.

Thanks to these vibrant and enthusiastic cheerleaders, the day was a guaranteed success.   

Results

Junior Section—Crassula were the winners, with Disa and Protea in second place.

Senior Section—Gerbera came first, Crassla  second and Disa third.

Combined Teams Results – Crassula moved from 2nd place in 2017 to 1st place this year! Disa took 2nd place, Gerbera 3rd, Protea  4th and Harveya and Nerine 5th and 6th respectively .

Two records were broken on the day. Nicole Baxter of Gerbera broke her own 2017 record in Senior Breaststroke with a time of 40,25 seconds. The 2015 Junior Freestyle relay record previously held by Gerbera was broken by Disa in a time of 1 minute 7.38 seconds.

Inter-High Gala

The Inter High Gala took place on 8 March. As always the Jeppe team spirit was fantastic and the Grade 8 supporters cheered  our swimmers on with pride. We came 5th out of 10 schools and had some wonderful results. Congratulations to our swimmers.

Midmar Mile

The Aquelle Midmar mile is the world’s largest open water swim. It took place the weekend of the 10th and 11th of February and there were 17 Jeppe Girls participating in the Non-Company event on Saturday.

Our girls swam very well. Our first swimmer out of the water was Caitlin Davies, followed by Kristen Van Aardt and Caitlynn Switala.

Caitlin Davies and Sydney McDougall swam their 5th Midmar Mile for Jeppe Girls this year. Caitlin also swam 8 miles for charity over the weekend and R10 000 was donated to CANSA on her behalf.
