Getting in the swim at the ESSA National Swimming Championships Relays
Clayesmore’s Swim Team have been in action. At the regional ESSA National Swimming Championships, 12 school representatives lined up against 940 other contenders. School relay records were smashed, one of which was 15 years old, and Rebecca (Year 12) also broke two more school records in the 50m frontcrawl and 50m backstroke. The Year 12 Senior Girls team of Rebecca, Alex, Asia and Ellie have swum as a relay team since they were in Year 7 and were silver medallists at the IAPS National Finals when they were in Year 8. The boys made a strong showing, with brilliant split times. Unfortunately, the last three swimmers in a relay cannot use their split times as official times. If you could, Xav (Year 13) would have broken another school record (for 50m Breaststroke). Hopefully next term when he is back in the pool (after his rugby commitments this term), he will have the chance to officially get the record. Huge congratulations to all!
