Clayesmore swimmers make a splash


Clayesmore’s swim team competed against local rivals Canford and King’s Bruton last weekend. The team performed exceptionally well, with the Junior Boys coming 1st and 2nd in every individual event and 1st in both their relays. The Senior boys also had a fantastic meet with three individual 1st and victory in both of their relays.

Swimming Director, Mrs Ali Pickford, writes:

“A special mention must go to Xavier (captain) and Guy who have competed for Clayesmore since their days in the Prep School. This gala was their last for the school and their commitment to swimming and competitions has been outstanding through the years. The last event of the gala was the Freestyle Relay and it was a very special moment to see Xavier and Guy swim in the relay team. Guy swam the third leg, and Xavier the fourth, so their last take over ever!”

Final Points

Junior: Clayesmore 90, Canford 55. King’s Bruton 31 Senior: Clayesmore 80, Canford 48, King’s Bruton 43

Congratulations to the whole team!
