The 2019 New Zealand AIMS Games saw 23 ACG Parnell College athletes attend across six sporting codes: Cross Country, Swimming, Tennis, Table Tennis, Badminton and Golf.
It was a really positive week seeing our students compete against the best in their year group and come away with some pleasing results.
The highlight of the week was undoubtedly our Swimming team who picked up four Bronze Medals and came second overall in the Boys’ Team category. This is an outstanding achievement given we only sent four male swimmers to the games.
Swimming Boys Team – Second overall
Charlie Li – Bronze Medals – 50m Butterfly, 100m Breaststroke, 200m Breaststroke
Patrick Li – Bronze Medal – 50m Backstroke
Patrick Li – 4th 100m Freestyle
