Friday 11th March 2016: Hampshire Schools Gala

Filed under: Whole School @ 5:08 pm

The Hampshire Schools Gala took place at Waterlooville Leisure Centre this morning. This gala is for relay teams only and so we had 2 boys’ freestyle teams, 2 girls’ freestyle teams and 1 boy and 1 girl medley team.

The swimming at this county level gala is always of a very high standard, with race referees watching very carefully for false starts and take-overs and strokes that do not comply with the rules!

All the races were timed on stop watches and only the fastest three teams from the heats would receive medals. Once again, Bishop’s Waltham Junior School were fantastic with the boys ‘A’ squad coming 2nd in the freestyle and medley races and the girls ‘A’ squad took bronze in the medley relay. Unfortunately, the girls’ ‘A’ freestyle team just missed getting a medal by 3/100th of a second. The ‘B’ team also put in fantastic performances to be placed in the top 6 places.

These teams now have a very good chance of going to the South East of England Primary Schools Championships in April but we have to wait to find out!

Well done to all of the swimmers (and to Mrs Cooper…..super coach!) – We are very proud of you!
