There were some fantastic moments that deserve special recognition; Mackenzie Cannon was weighed down with gold, winning Gold in the year 7 boys breaststroke, in the freestyle and for being part of the relay team that won gold in the medlay and freestyle. Eoghan Cannon was also on fire, 2 gold medals in the year 6 backstroke and freestyle and setting a new National record in the backstroke. Massive congratulations to the National champion Leah Hamilton, sensational swimming paid off with a gold in the year 8 breaststroke, another gold in the freestyle relay relay and silver in the medley relay. Frankie Hatchard also did tremendously well - gold in the Year 4 50m backstroke making her National Champion.
Added to the list of medal winners are the pupils who competed in some very hotly contested races and performed fantastically; Adam Rogers, Toby Adlam, and Jake Boddie joined Eoghan Cannon in the year 6 freestyle relay team to come 4th; Aidan Cannon came 4th in the year 10 Breastroke; George Cameron came 5th in the year 8 butterfly, Freya Simpson also came 5th in the year 9 individual medlay and 7th in the butterfly.
