Gala 4 of the Division 10 Swimming League
Gala 4 at St. Helen’s, in the five gala series, was well attended and mixed both more experienced swimmers with first-time performers. Neither disappointed in the contest against The Beacon and Chesham Prep School.
Individual race winners in Year 6 included Dylan Moore (U11, 50 Backstroke), Zac Kirkham (U11, 50m Breaststroke) and Jamie Barrett (U11, 25m Butterfly). Year 5 picked up two wins from Louis Ham (U10, 25m Breaststroke) and Oliver Jones (U10, 25m Freestyle), and the Year 4 team also won two individual races with Alexander Dalmahoy (U9, 25m Backstroke) and Oscar Whitcombe (U9, 25m Backstroke). Well done to the Year 6 relay ‘A’ team who won both their Medley and Freestyle Relays with inches to spare. Great racing! Overall, the racing was very fast, with several PB times recorded, and the relays were organised and slick. The support the boys gave each other across the age groups was impressive. It really does help to be reassured by someone in your relay team that you are in the right place and swimming the correct stroke, particularly if you are new to competitive swimming.
Well done, everyone!
Mr Thomas, Head of Sport
