STEMGuyana Supports National Athletes!
Big big congrats Maiya Sarah Ifill for her outstanding performance at the 2019 GTU School’s Nationals Swimming Championship. She won her 50 freestyle, 50 fly and 100 freestyle races. Her relay team also placed first so she comes away with 4 golds and the Champion Girl Trophy for the Under 16 age group! More than the wins, she got a personal best time in her 50 freestyle which she was so desperate to achieve over the past year! So so proud of her and all the hard work she puts in! She is also a great student and a gem of a child – full of empathy and wisdom. I must confess that I truly lucked out as a parent!
In the first picture, she is there with pal Raekwon Noel who was his usual superstar self, winning all three of his races and coming away with the Under 16 Champion boy’s trophy. In the second picture are the winning male and female relay teams from North Zone – District 11. In this picture are Giselle Crane and Amy Grant who also emerged Age Group Champion GIrls as they also won their 3 races.
Congrats to North Zone for winning the swimming championships yet again!
