Report on Bromsgrove Swimming Gala

            On Monday 3rd March, eight Junior School boys (six Under 11s and two U10s) set off to the 30th Invitational Relay Swimming gala hosted by Bromsgrove School and held at Worcester pool. This is traditionally a meeting of Prep (and boarding) schools offering very strong competition for our boys. This year we were able to take an A and B team to take part in the Under 11 events which involved 14 teams for the medley relays and 16 teams for the freestyle relays. First off the blocks were our Medley teams.  There were three heats; our A team came first in their heat with a time of 1.14.57 (and were the second fastest qualifying team for the final). Our B team came first in their heat with a time of 1.20.71 and also qualified for the A final (the fastest 6 teams in that event). Both teams swam exceedingly well in the final-our A team came 2nd and our B team came 6th.

Next were the heats for the Freestyle relays; our A team came 1st in their heat with a time of 1.04.76 and our B team came 3rd in their heat with a time of 1.11.40. Our A team qualified again for the “A” finals (fastest 6 teams) swam superbly with such an amazingly close finish-2nd by a hundredth of a second!! Our B team comfortably qualified for the B final (only just missing out on a place in the A final) and came 1st in the B final (7th fastest team out of 16).

All of the boys swam exceedingly well (especially Neel B and Oliver H who were U 10s) against strong opposition (indeed one coach said to another coach that the standard on the day was comparable to that of national standards of swimming). It was great to accompany our Senior School who entered the Under 13 events and swam very well; many of them had come through the Junior School! Well done to everyone!
