Winchester Primary Schools' Swimming Gala

St Swithun’s junior swimmers had an incredibly successful morning at the Winchester Primary Schools’ Swimming Gala, on Friday 5th June.

The girls won all three of their events: the medley relay, the freestyle relay and the Year 4 girls’ 25 metres freestyle. The gala was organised by the Winchester City Penguins Swimming Club and held at the River Park Leisure Centre. Twenty four girls’ relay teams took part, with thirty six girls in the Year 4 individual freestyle event. Heats were held with the top six teams, and top six individuals, qualifying for the finals. Tacita, Mia and Sienna swam very well in the Year 4 freestyle heats. Tacita qualified for the final, with Mia just missing out by one place and Sienna was 13th fastest. In the final, Tacita swam brilliantly to win the Year 4 girls’ event. The girls’ medley relay team (Annabel, Amelia, Iona and Olivia) and freestyle team (Katie, Olivia, Iona and Amelia) also qualified for the finals, and went on to win both events.
