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.
