Silver medals as Hampsthwaite swim to the finals

Congratulations to the Hampsthwaite swimming team, who performed brilliantly at the Tolly Richardson swimming gala. Held on Thursday 28th September, we competed against 16 schools at the Hydro pool. Scoring a massive 169 points overall, Hampsthwaite held a strong position throughout the gala, coming in first place in the first round, joint first at the end of the third round, and just 3 points behind the winners in the end, to come in a close 2nd place. It was great to see the team spirit as they cheered each other on during each heat, and we had a nail-biting finish as the relay races took place. Well done to all our swimmers: Gabriel, Freya, Archie, Isabella, Louis, Isaac, Lucy, Imogen, Martha, Harry and Fynn, who have earned themselves a proud place in the finals which will take place on 17th October.

Thank you to Lynn, Phil and all the Hydro team who made the gala a very enjoyable and exciting event, with a fantastic atmosphere.
