Swimmers to London

20 November 2015

Good luck to the Wally Hall swimming teams who are competing in the English Schools' Relay Finals at the Olympic Aquatic Centre in London this weekend.

The squad had a great practice run on Monday evening competing away against Sevenoaks School where they gave an excellent performance against some tough competition to win the match by 211 points to 185.

In a closely fought battle, particularly with our junior age group, the results at Sevenoaks were as follows:

Juniors:  Sevenoaks 64 Walthamstow Hall 62

Intermediates: Sevenoaks 55 Walthamstow Hall 71

Seniors: Sevenoaks 58 Walthamstow Hall 68

Squadron: Sevenoaks 8 Walthamstow Hall 10

There were first places for Wally Hall swimmers in; the Junior age group 50m Butterfly and 50m Backstroke; the Intermediate age group 100m Individual Medley, 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle and in the Senior age group 100m Individual Medley, 50m Butterfly, 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle. There were also first places for Wally Hall in the Medley Relays for all age groups and in the Intermediate and Senior Freestyle Relays as well as the Squadron.

Congratulations to everyone on an excellent performance against some tough competition. Thank you also to team manager Mrs Howlett and all of the support from parents who were there to cheer the girls on. You did Wally proud!

Good luck in London.

Mr R Smith, Swimming Coach
