Cairo School Swim League

Cairo Schools Swimming League Round 3

Completing the third round at NCBIS this month, swimmers from the Junior School and the Senior School continue to set the standards in the swimming league, by continuing to stay at the top of the league. They have never been beaten as we have approached the halfway stage of the league.

Swimmers from BISC have dominated all sections of the Under 10’s and Under 11’s, which stands them in good stead at the start of the newly formed Junior League.

This competition saw BISC, along with five other schools, compete at NCBIS, with a total of nearly 200 swimmers taking part in the league.

BISC dominated the league match, which has already been mentioned, in the individual swims; taking them into a commanding position into the relays section of the swim meet. This is an area that BISC has dominated in the previous matches and once again they did so by winning everyone, apart from one, where we had to make up numbers, due to swimmers not being able to make this meet.

In the end, BISC, once again, came out on top (see table 1), with a clear lead of 88 points, putting them in total 3 points clear (based on league points in the final standings), with 24 points ahead of their nearest rivals: AIS-W.

The next league match is in three weeks’ time, here at BISC, so come along and support the children in Round 4 of the league.

A particular mention has to be made to a number of swimmers, who swam up out of their age groups, or had to cover more than their usual number of events to ensure we could field individuals in every event : Aida Abdel Razek, Omar Salah, Yasseen Madi, Youssef Sami, Malika Helal, to name a few.
