On Thursday 28th February St Francis School travelled from Pewsey, in Wiltshire, to swim against Years 3, 4 and 5. The St Francis team included boys as well as girls and, as always, it was a most enjoyable gala.
Both the A and B squads swam really well with Olivia Busher, Eleanor Holmes, Anna Morley, Amelia Bruce, Iona Morley, Annabel Yeatman, Evie Johnson and Jenna Lowe winning at least one of their individual races and with all of the A squad swimmers winning their relays.
The U9B medley relay team (Isabella Alexander, Lulu Hepworth, Bea Watson and Caitlin Williams) must be congratulated on their second place, ahead of the St Francis team.
Four school records were also broken. These were:
- Olivia Busher Year 3 – 25 metres front crawl in 19.13 seconds
- Evie Johnson Year 5 – 50 metres front crawl in 37.94 seconds
- Year 3 medley relay team (Mia Clark, Eleanor Holmes, Amelia Tirado and Olivia Busher) in 1 minute 50.03 seconds
- Year 3 freestyle team (Amelia Tirado, Agnes Bracey-Davis, Eleanor Holmes and Olivia Busher) in 1 minute 38.66 seconds
The final scores were:
1st St. Swithun’s ‘A’ Squad with 212 points
2nd St. Francis with 145 points and
3rd St. Swithun’s ‘B’ Squad with 118 points.
