West Oxfordshire Swimming Tournament

12th June 2017

West Oxfordshire Swimming Gala

On Monday morning five upper junior girls, who had previously won the Witney Gala, attended the West Oxon Gala, held at Carterton Leisure Centre.

Competing over four different swimming strokes and two relay races, the girls started off against five other schools from the region in commanding form winning the Medley relay race in a tight finish. The Batt continued to keep the pressure on with another win, thanks to Martha in the 25m freestyle race. Eve followed up with a very good second place in the 25m breaststroke.

In the following three races, two fourth positions and a fifth placed finish left the girls unsure of the their final standings. When announced, the girls were extremely pleased to have taken a second place and went home with a silver medal each.

Congratulations to Martha, Eve, Darcy, Maisie and Lily who now progress through to the county finals in July.
