Swim team successes
October 12, 2017
The standard was outstanding. Most swimmers taking part not only train for 4 mornings and 4 evenings a week but in addition some have Yorkshire and/or National times. Our swimmers train a maximum of twice a week and for most this is only as a school extra curricular activity. Considering this their performances were fantastic!
25 students from years 7-13 took part, with a team entered in every category and every event.
Junior (year 7-8) boys came 3rd in both their events and girls came 4th and 6th.
Intermediate (year 9-10) boys came 1st and 3rd however, unfortunately as one team member could not make the event, they had a year 8 boy swimming up which meant they did not qualify for an award. The girls had tough competition and came 12th in both their events.
Senior (year 11-13) boys came 2nd and 3rd, and girls came 3rd and 5th – again a team member was unavailable so they had a year 9 swimming up which meant they did not qualify for the award.
Most importantly everyone enjoyed themselves and it was a fantastic evening.
