Relay Team Win Medals in National Swimming Heats

Following their success at last year’s small schools’ gala we decided that some of our elite swimmers needed an extra challenge.  To do this we entered a mixed team in the freestyle and medley relays at the National Schools’ Swimming Championships (Yorkshire Heats) at the Galpharm Stadium in Huddersfield.

Swimming RelayWith the added competition of teams coming from as far away as Newcastle and Hull, our swimmers rose superbly to the challenge winning medals by finishing fourth in both events.

Their achievements are all the more impressive considering that three of our team are still in Year 5.  This gives them the chance to improve on their position next year. Finishing in the top three will  see them representing Yorkshire in the National Finals.
