Division 10 Gala at Maltman’s Green
Heavy rain, with lightning and thunder, may have thwarted Year 4 Rugby plans, but the only flooding at the Division 10 Gala at Maltman’s Green was the enthusiasm with which Team Davenies executed their first gala of the year.
Swimming against Gayhurst and St. Martin’s, 24 swimmers from Years 4, 5 and 6 showed their skill and determination in a noisy, but exciting Gala. For many making their Division 10 debut, it was a fantastic first experience of competitive swimming. I thought the Year 4 boys were organised, calm and keen to go in many close races. The all-important starts need some work, but individual wins for Alexaxnder Dalmahoy, Ishaan Sahota and, the ‘pocket torpedo’ Charlie Horton, were very impressive. From Year 4 and 5, there were wins for Ben Hobbs, Zach Sanders, Calvin Seymore, Zach Kirkham, Jamie Barrett and Jamie Southwell-Sander, all of whom closed out tight races in some style. The relay wins, four from six, were fast and furious, giving us a good chance to emerge winners in each of the three year groups. Well done to all participants!
A gentle reminder that Year 4 and 5 swim squad is on Wednesdays at 1pm and for Year 6, 7 and 8 it is on Fridays at 1pm.

The next gala will be on Monday 14th October at Godstowe (Years 5–8), 4:30pm
