Many girls from Years 5 and 6 were selected to swim against Derwent Lodge. We were hoping to get revenge for their two point victory from last term. The U10 team swimmers did very well with Kara, Eleanor and Grace all winning their races. Eleanor, Lily, Annabelle and Kara also won the freestyle relay. Last time, the U10’s lost by 6 points, but this time they achieved a narrow win against Derwent Lodge U10’s by 46 points to 45! Well done girls.
The U11 team also put up a good performance, and Maddy again achieved two first places in both the Fly and Breaststroke races. Maddie also won her individual race. The freestyle relay team of Maddy, Lauren, Georgina and Maddie repeated their previous win. Overall, the U11 team lost by 47 points to 44. The final squadron relay race was very exciting, and the place judges declared a dead heat for 1st and 2nd place giving our teams a 6 – 5 victory in this event, as our ‘B’ team were 3rd.
1st – Derwent Lodge 97 points
2nd – The Granville 96 points.
