Witney Swimming Gala

Last Friday morning a team of our upper junior boys and girls headed off to the Windrush Leisure Centre to compete against eleven other schools from the partnership, where the girls were defending a four year reign as champions and the boys were looking to take the trophy that they hadn’t won for three years .

Competing over four different swimming strokes and two relay races, the girls started off strong, winning the medley relay with the boys coming in a respectable fifth. The individual events then took place with Martha S, winning her front crawl and Katie, Darcy and Alex T all coming second in their races. With the final freestyle relay finishing the gala, the girls again won by a comfortable margin with the boys coming in fifth place.

Overall the boys placed halfway, in sixth place and the girls again retained the trophy for the fifth year and now progress through to the West Oxfordshire swimming finals later in the year.

Congratulations to all involved in what was another exciting sporting achievement for The Batt School.
