Prep School Success at Swimming Finals
24 June 2016
Having qualified for the English Schools Swimming Association Finals last month the five finalists were excited when the day finally arrived. They all travelled up to Ponds Forge Pool in Sheffield for the national event on Saturday 18 June with parents, Mrs Ash and Mrs Hartley.
After finding their way round the girls warmed up at their familiarisation time which was in the morning. They then had time for lunch before the ceremonial part of the day when Imogen and Lowri, the Team Captains were presented with badges for everyone.
Both the Freestyle and Medley Teams performed very well with the girls all giving impressive performances in the pool.
We finished the day with a very successful tenth place, in the country, for the Freestyle Team and a second place for the Medley Team. A podium finish is a first time for EHS at this National event. Congratulations to Lowri, Imogen, Charlotte, Audrey and Sophie!
