Division 10 Gala 3 @ Haberdashers’ Aske’s Girls
Gala 3 against Berkhamsted and Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys, proved to be more competitive than the previous two rounds, but nonetheless exciting.
Several last minute replacements, including Archie Prosser, Louis Ham and Ted Procter, did not look out of place amongst more experienced swimmers. Some great racing with tight finishes got the crowd on their feet and the decibel level rising. There were individual wins in Year 6 for Dylan Moore, Jamie Barrett and Jamie Southwell-Sander; in Year 5 for Ben Hobbs and William Whitby; and in Year 4 for Oscar Whitcombe and Charlie Horton. Three first places and three second places in the relay events were brilliant, whilst it was delightful to see the fantastic efforts of the B Team relay swimmers in each year group, who achieved three third place finishes between them.
Well done to Charlie Horton and Zac Abrahams who swam back-to-back relays for their own team, as well as for Year 5 to cover an absence. Attendance at squad sessions are really making a difference!
