Swim team successes

October 12, 2017

The Academy Swim Squad competed in the English Schools North East Division Secondary Schools Team Championships on Friday evening at Huddersfield Leisure Centre.

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.
