Swimming Gala Tie
In yet another extremely close Inter-House sports event two Houses tied for the win! Girls from across the School represented their Houses in events including Butterfly, Breaststroke, Backstroke and Freestyle.
It was wonderful to see four new school records – Year 7’s Natasha in the 100m Individual Medley, Year 9’s Rebecca breaking both the 50m Junior Freestyle and the 50m Junior Backstroke, and Darnley House setting a new record for the Freestyle Relay. Well done to Darnley House’s team: Natasha (Year 7), Francesca (Year 8), Alice (Year 8), Rebecca (Year 9), Bo (Year 9), Holly (Year 10), Hannah (Year 12), and Isabela (Year 12).
The Freestyle Relay was the final event of the Gala, and worth double points. Clifton House were in the lead until this point, but Darnley’s record-breaking performance allowed them to catch up and finish in joint first position. Richmond House came third, with Lenox taking the final spot.
It was an incredibly exciting afternoon and the girls had lots of fun with both competitors and spectators truly embracing House Spirit!
