Nationals 2023: North Georgetown wins swimming title again


Again and again, the swimming titles keep racking up for the formidable North Georgetown (District 11) at the National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming and Track and Field Championships.

At the 61st edition of ‘Nationals,’ District 11 extended its stronghold on the swimming title as one official from the district indicated they have not lost swimming in over 15 years.

Blessed with the core of the country’s national swimmers, coaches, and the National Aquatic Centre at Liliendaal, the district’s success in swimming seems inevitable.

While they have, without question, dominated over the years, other districts have made incremental improvements and offered more challenges.

Based on Monday’s unofficial results, District 11 accumulated 441 points to beat District 10 (Upper Demerara/Kwakwani), which got 349 points.

East Georgetown (District 12) managed 260 points, followed by Bartica (District 7) with 237.5 points, Essequibo Coast/Pomeroon (District 2) with 202.5 points, and Rupununi (District 9) with 199 points to round off the top six of the 15 districts who contested the championships.

With cycling, swimming, and road races completed, all action will be based at the National Track and Field Facility, West Coast Demerara, from November 28 – December 1 as District 10 chases a seventh consecutive title.

With two second places – cycling and swimming – out of the four champions – cycling, swimming, track and field, and teachers – District 10 is well on its way to achieving the feat, given its usual dominance in track and field.
