Witham pupils enjoy Swimming Gala vs Stamford Junior School

16 Oct 2014

On Wednesday 15th October, Witham Hall had their first swimming gala in what could possibly be 26 years. Stamford Junior School hosted us in the new pool within the new sports complex at Stamford School. After a swift warm up, 22 children, under the captaincy of Olly Rymer (boys) and Isabella Micklewright (girls), took on the challenge of different strokes at Under 9, U10 and U11 level. Special mention should go to:

  • Isabella Micklewright who won the U11 Individual Medley (where she has to swim one length of each stroke) and the U11 Butterfly
  • Olly Rymer who won the U11 Backstroke
  • Harry Jones who came 2nd in the U10 Backstroke
  • Joe Atkinson who came 2nd in the U10 Freestyle,
  • Will Fairfax who came 2nd in the U10 Breaststroke.

The final score was 68 points to Witham and 108 to Stamford. The points don’t reflect how close some of the races were. All the children enjoyed themselves and were pleased to be a part of something new! Thanks to all the parents who came and supported us, it was lovely to see you all on the balcony.
