English Schools’ Swimming Association Regional Heats
The English Schools’ Swimming Association regional heats took place at Everton Park Sports Centre in Liverpool on Friday evening. Some of our Junior School boys and girls competed in the competition that consisted of just medley and freestyle relays. Schools from all over Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester and the Isle of Man competed with only the fastest three teams making it through to the National Finals which will be held at Pond’s Forge, Sheffield in June.
Our boys swan incredibly well, and although we will have to wait for confirmation, we think they finished in 4th and 5th place; superb achievements but obviously upsetting to miss out on the finals by just one place. They should be very proud of themselves however, as these are the best finishing places the boys have ever achieved. Fingers crossed for next year!
The girls had the swims of their lives and were overjoyed when they realised they had actually won both their races! Well done to Hollie Cubbon, Lola Baron, Mia Machie and Aisha Sykes who will be competing in Sheffield against the best teams from all over England. Good luck girls!
