Girls Make Finals of National Swimming Championships

Tuesday, 26 June 2012

Pupils from Hesketh House competed in the National Swimming Championships, taking on twenty four teams from all areas of the country.

The girls had qualified to swim in both the Freestyle Relay and the Medley Relay by recording very good times in the preliminary round earlier in the year, and travelled to Ponds Forge Pool in Sheffield to compete.

The Medley team swimmers - Tara Wallis, Havana Lloyd, Amy Haslam, and  Maddie Kennedy qualified for the final in 8th  fastest time, and after an exceptional swim in the finals, they were placed 5th in a time of 1.11 67.

In the Freestyle event, the team members were Havana Lloyd, Amy Haslam, Paige Dobson and Maddie Kennedy. An amazing swim in the heats put them into the final in 6th place in a time of 1.01.41. They really pushed hard in the finals but unfortunately got themselves disqualified for a faulty take over.

It was a very special day and congratulations go to all the girls for their efforts. To be the fifth fastest team in the Medley Relay was outstanding.
