Monday 11th March 2013 – Swimming Team Success

Filed under: Swimming @ 11:40 am

Our school swimming teams achieved fantastic results at the Hampshire round of English Primary Schools Championships held at The Quays in Southampton on Friday 8th March. In an awesome display of team relay swimming in the 4x25m freestyle, our girls’ team took first place to be crowned Hampshire champions and then they went on to take second place in the Medley relay. Our boys’ team were also medal winners by easily taking  bronze in their freestyle relay event but so narrowly missed a medal by four tenths of a second in the medley relay! Congratulations too to our second girls’ teams who were placed fourth in the medley and fifth in the freestyle, beating many other schools’ first teams. What a haul of achievement by our superb teams and great recognition of all the hard work that they put in during the early morning squad training sessions at school. They were a credit to Bishop’sWaltham!

At the end of the gala our teams caught sight of Olympic diving star Pete Waterfield practising in the diving pool and were thrilled when he agreed to autograph their swimming hats.
