The Girls House Swimming Teams Swim for Glory!
The Annual Girls’ House Swimming Gala took place yesterday with the No.1 position enthusiastically contested between the four Houses – Bowland, Longridge, Pendle and Calder.
Students from Years 7 to 12 competed in all four strokes as well as the neat dive, best stroke style. The favourite had to be the novelty race where swimmers have to dive for objects, swim through hoops and contend with floats.
One of the highlights of the gala had to be when Freya Tembe in Year 8 broke the one length Breaststroke race that has stood since 1998, with a time of 15.12 from 15:44. Well done Freya!
All of the Houses showed great team spirit with their supporters cheering each swimmer. It was very close but the final results overall were:
1st – Bowland 196 points
2nd – Pendle 192 points
3rd – Longridge 176 points
4th – Calder 173 points
