On Friday 25 March the Swimming Club made their annual trip to the Bromsgrove Relays, to compete against a number of schools including Warwick, Nottingham High and Bromsgrove themselves. Entering two teams into the U15 and U18 age groups, both the U15 A and B squads swam well in the 4 x 50m Medley heats resulting in both squads making the ‘A’ final, for which the A squad finished 1st in a time of 2.02.12. The U18s A squad also qualified for the A final in the U18 4x50m Medley Relay, finishing 2nd in a time of 1.59.75. An agonising 0.5 of a second behind 1st place. Moving to the 4 x 50m Freestyle relays, and again the U15 A squad, which consisted of four U14 swimmers, Josh Roche, Luca Frauenfeld, Nicholas Skelton and Scott Yap led the field home in the final in a time of 1.50.44, whilst the U18s finished a credible 4th in their event, only 1 second behind 1st place.
Another very successful trip for the youthful squad, retuning with silverware and in the knowledge that all medallists will still be competing in the same age category next year.
