Swimming Gala v WHJS



Swimming Gala v WHJS

Twenty-six girls were selected to swim in the gala at Walthamstow Hall. It was always going to be a tough match, and there is growing competition for team places as swimming times are collected and analysed.

U11’s. Won 44 points to 36

The Year 6 girls once again proved just what a talented swimming group they are. In the individual races, Zoё N-P came first in her two events; and Sasha Kelly also won her race.

The A string relay teams won both the Medley and the Freestyle races.

Personal best times:

Rosie  – Backstroke 20.44s

Sasha  – Breaststroke 19.48s, Fly 18.48s

Zoё  – Freestyle 14.75s

Ellie  – Freestyle 17.77s

Other team members – K Matson, E Cons and S Collins.

 U10’s. Lost 27 points to 54

We had some new faces in the U10 team; the girls have been working very hard in lessons, and it was a pleasure to reward some of them with the opportunity to swim in a competitive gala. Two of the regular team were unavailable on the day, and led to a last minute shuffle of the team. Georgina Vertue won her race, and we got three thirds, and three fourths.

Personal best times:

Florrie  – Backstroke 23.07s

Esme – Backstroke 22.84s

Izzy  – Breaststroke 24.92s

Maddy  – Fly 18.31s

Other team members – G Vertue, L Brooke, K Pope, V Barker, E McDonagh,

H Marr-Johnson.


U9’s Lost 35 points to 45

An enthusiastic and rapidly improving group of young swimmers. Their technique in the pool is very good, and we now need to work on holding form right to the end of the race. Heather Gibb won her Freestyle race in 19.59s. We also achieved three second places, two third and two fourth places.

Personal best times:

Eleanor  – Backstroke 22.30s

Anika  – Breaststroke 25.03s

Telian – Breaststroke 27.34s

Annabelle – Freestyle 20.05s

Other team members – H Gibb, I MacKenzie, L Hinds, K Davies.

Mixed age Squadron Relay – 2nd and 4th places.
