On Thursday 31st January the A and B squads had a swimming match against Pilgrims’ School. This is always a highly competitive fixture as many of the girls have brothers swimming in the Pilgrims’ team.
All of the girls must be congratulated on their exceptional swimming with Tallulah Jeffes, Freya Green, Evie Johnson, Anastasia Lawrence, Amelia Bruce and Annabel Yeatman winning all of their age-group races. Six girls were awarded medals for breaking three school records:
Tallulah Jeffes Year 6 - 25 metres breaststroke in a time of 20.69 seconds;
Anastasia Lawrence Year 5 - 25 metres front crawl in 16.94 seconds;
Annabel Yeatman, Katie Baxter, Alice Leather and Iona Morley Year 4 - freestyle relay in a time of 1 minute 24.01 seconds.
The final scores were:
1st St. Swithun’s ‘A’ Squad with 275 points
2nd Pilgrims’ with 205 points and
3rd St. Swithun’s ‘B’ Squad with 136 points.
Very well done girls.
