On Saturday 16th March, I took 8 children to the ESSA swimming gala at Guildford Spectrum. All of the children swam in 2 relays, a Medley and Freestyle (A team – Aspen P, Lily-Mae O, Gracie B, Joseph F) (B team – Milli D, Charlotte S, Sebastian D, Christopher S)
The B team were up first swimming in their Medley Relay, finishing 4th in their heat. Well done to you all. Next to swim were the A team, they started strong and led from the beginning winning by half a length of the pool, fantastic swims by all.
3 events later, it was the B teams turn to swim in the Freestyle Relay. Another good swim and they finished again 4th in their heat. The A team were up and gave another outstanding swim winning the event by another convincing lead.
The A team go through to the next round on May 11th to take part in the SE Regional gala at Guildford Spectrum.
Well done to all of the swimmers especially Aspen P, Lily-Mae O, Gracie B and Joseph F who came away with Gold medals for both relays and a shield for each.
Thank you to all the parents and siblings for giving up their Saturday evening to come and support.
