Success at the Swimming Gala

On Thursday February 8th the school attended the Brampton Schools swimming gala at the Pools in Carlisle. We had a great start to the afternoon with most of our swimmers managing to get into the finals of their individual events and both relay teams topping their heats to progress to the finals. 

Rufus started the individual medal haul with a silver (50m Front Crawl), followed by a silver for Gracie (50m Front Crawl), a silver for Lauren (25m Back) and a very close silver for Izzy (25m Breast).  The children were besides themselves with excitement by this stage and we had a welcome brief wait until the start of the 4 x 25m Relay finals.

The boys team were up first and excelled themselves with a fantastic silver medal. The girls team were determined that nothing short of a gold medal would suffice and after a gutsy race ending in a nail biting finish they were crowned girls relay champions.  Our team finished a marvellous 2nd overall. Many thanks to the parents who attended, I am sure your enthusiastic support for our team played a part in their success.

The girls team: Falon Trotter (Yr6), Izzy Bryant (Yr5), Grace Little (Yr5), Lauren Roddam (Yr5), Beth Rutherford(Yr4)
The boys team: Scott Bowman (Yr6), Joe Graham (Yr6), Rufus Skelton (Yr6), Christopher Chalmers (Yr5)
