GRANVILLE 146, DERWENT LODGE 124.
As always, the swimming gala against Derwent Lodge was a very exciting event, showcasing many excellent young swimmers from both schools. In the individuals races, Derwent Lodge looked to have the upper hand, winning the majority of them, but Granville’s depth shone through, and we picked up valuable points with our second string swimmers.
After the individual races, Granville were just ahead by 104 points to 96. Then, the relays took place, and this is where the discipline and determination of our swimmers really stood out. We won 5 of the 6 relays, and were pleased to finish off with a superb win in the squadron relay.
Final scores were Granville 146 to Derwent Lodge’s 124 points. The U9’s won by 42 points to 38; the U10’s won by 47 to 43 points; the U11’s won by 51 to 39 points, and we picked up 6 points in the squadron relay.
Individual race winners were; Sasha Kelly x 2, Zoe Naylor-Perrott x 2, Anna Pearson, Maddie Wise, Eva McDonagh and Anika Hansen. Izzy Mackenzie also deserves mention for an awesome final relay leg, where she came from a long way behind to snatch victory!
Congratulations to all 26 swimmers; a great team effort!
