Regional Swimming Success

On Friday 27th Sept 14 girls from L4-U6 travelled to Watford for the ESSA E/SE regional team swimming championships. They all swam superbly and out of over 30 schools competing in each age group we achieved the following results:

Junior Medley - 6th

Junior Freestyle - 3rd

Inter Medley - 2nd

Inter Freestyle - 1st

Senior Medley - 9th

Senior Freestyle - 10th

From these excellent positions we also gained enough points to be give 2nd school overall out of 21 schools that managed to place in the top 8 at least once.

This is our best result at this competition for a few years.

The times from this gala get submitted to ESSA and they rank all schools in the country. They then take the top 30 teams through to the national finals in November. We wait to hear whether we have qualified but these times should put us in that top 30 for at least the jnr and inter teams.

Girls in the team were:

L4 - Matilda Sandell, Bella Daniel, Izzy Fox, Carys Westcott, Katherine Carney

U4 - Priya Palmer, Isabel Ness

L5 - Lotte Koudijs, Molly Leamon, Libby Gordon

U5 - Ffion Miller, Annabelle Garthside, Isobel Benster

6th - Lara Richmond
