Four Year 6 girls took part in this prestigious gala at Millfield School on Monday 30 April. Rebecca, Ellie, Emily and Sophie represented the school well against teams from as far afield as Plymouth and Bristol. The team competed in two relays, 100m freestyle and 100m mixed stroke. On arrival, the girls were very excited to be representing the school at this event for the first time.
They completed a good warm up and awaited their freestyle race. The girls swam their best and came a fantastic 4th in a very close race. The second race brought more nerves. Emily set off brilliantly on her back and was in first place, and Rebecca maintained this lead in the breaststroke. Ellie and Sophie finished the race in excellent form to gain first place. This result has gained them a place in the National finals at Sheffield on June 16.
Congratulations to all four on such a fantastic achievement! Mrs Banks
