Witham swimmers enjoy Gala at Oakham!

13 Feb 2015

U12 and U11 vs Oakham School

Thursday 5th Feb saw the first outing of the U12 swimming team and the experienced U11 team. The teams had had a short training session before the gala and after a warm up were prepared to go. The two teams had to work together because as well as the normal individual events, there were also lots of relays – a medley, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle!

Special mention goes to:

·         Ella Turner who came 1st in U12 Breaststroke

·         Isabella Micklewright who came 1st in U11 breastroke and 2nd in butterfly

·         Archie Smith Maxwell who came 2nd in U12 freestyle

·         And the U12 medley relay team of Archie Smith Maxwell, Rori Rodell, Ella Turner and Holly Spragg who came 2nd.

The final score was 106 points to Witham and 140 to Oakham.

Well done again for taking part and to all the parents who came to cheer us along!
