Swimming v The Dragon
The journey to Oxford with 40 swimmers from Years 4–8 proved a valuable, exciting and team building experience.
As the IAPS Swimming Championship season approaches, many of the boys had their focus on a fast time in the pool that we will be returning to on 14 February for the qualifying round. Others were set on personal best times and participating in their relay teams to the best of their ability. With several new faces, it was good to see plenty of comradery across the year groups and a desire to execute the relay events with strong starts, slick changeovers and maximum effort in the closing stages.
Nine out of the ten relays were won and there were nine individual winners and several 1st and 2nd place finishes from a starting lineup of six. Well done to all the swimmers who participated. Those who have been selected to represent Davenies at this year’s IAPS qualifying round will be posted shortly. Please look and note the extra swimming sessions in place to fine-tune those racing techniques.
