Swimming Gala Success

Following swimming trails held before half term, a team of four boys and four girls took part in the West Lancashire School’s Swimming Gala held at Park Pool on Thursday 16th March.  In a two and half hour long event the children each completed in an individual event and also took part in the team relay.  Competing in the ‘Medium Schools’ competition the children swam extremely well showing a great deal of individual skill, but also a great ‘can do’ and ‘Go for Gold’ attitude.  The boys won their relay and there were some excellent individual results too, with points being won for each event we were delighted at the end of the evening to be awarded 2nd place overall.  Individual children and their achievements were:

 

  • Benjamin Paul—1st Backstroke          
  • James Rogerson—  25m Freestyle
  • Harry Beaumont—1st Breaststroke 
  • Evie Grimes—2nd Backstroke
  • Poppy Evans—6th Breaststroke 
  • Rachel Webster—50m Freestyle
  • Naomi Crespin— 25m Freestyle        
  • Sam Grimes—1st 50m Freestyle and Butterfly

 

Children are also pictured with their medals and Lordsgate’s Gold Games award given to us for all that we do to encourage participation in sporting events.
