English Schools' Swimming

On Saturday, our Junior Boys Swimming Team ventured to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield, to take part in the English Schools’ Swimming Association National Finals. Having qualified earlier this year, the team were excited to be attending such a prestigious event.

Considering the team were competing amongst the very best in the whole country, they were keen to impress and they certainly did so with their performance in the pool. They managed to improve on their qualifying Medley Relay time by an impressive 7 seconds and shaved another 2 seconds off their qualifying Freestyle Relay time – testament to their hard work and determination to say the least.

Their performance was truly memorable and we soon discovered that they were only half a second off qualifying for the Medley Relay Final and one and a half seconds from qualifying in the Freestyle Relay Final!

We were placed 18th overall for both events but we must remember this is out of the whole country – well done, boys!

The team must be extremely proud of their efforts – we certainly are. Special thanks must go to Mrs Gough and Mr Eastham for their superb efforts at poolside and to the travelling family support on what proved to be a fantastic day out.
