Swimmers buoyant after IAPS
Five Witham pupils travelled to the amazing facilities at Repton to participate in the regional qualifying gala. All times from 25 qualifying galas around the Country are pooled and the top 20 times in each event qualify for the National Finals.
Samantha swam first in the 25m Butterfly, recording a time of 20.4s to finish third in her heat. In the 25m Freestyle, Scarlett recorded a personal best of 18.7s to take third place, a great effort. Third to swim was Chris in the 50m Backstroke. Good technique and a gritty performance saw him record a time of 57.5s, which earned him third place. Jemma swam a great race in the 50m backstroke to win her heat with a personal best time of 39.5s. Finally, Theo Garwe swam 50m breaststroke and came second in his heat with a time of 43.9s.
All five pupils represented Witham fantastically well, displaying good endeavour and effort throughout.
