Stowe School Swimming Championships
You racing enthusiasts will know that Stowe Corner at Silverstone is named after Stowe School! Davenies’ swimmers dominated a small corner of its own at Stowe School this week, as they attended the Stowe School Swimming Championships with an U11 and U13 team. Speed was equally critical in a touch-pad event attended by ten schools. Each of the four swimmers in their year group had to swim their individual event, plus both the relays to accumulate points towards the overall total. In some very tight finishes, both teams held off some strong opposition to win both U11 and U13 shields for the second year running. Well done to the U11 team of Oliver, Alex, Noah and Benji, and to the U13 team of Thomas, Christian, Shanil and Jonny. The focus is now on the IAPS National Swimming Finals at the London Aquatic Centre in June where these eight will join a thirteen strong Davenies contingent to compete against the best Prep School swimmers in the country.
