On Tuesday, Sutton Valence’s Swimming team travelled to Rochester for a gala against Cobham Hall, St Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School and the hosts, King’s Rochester. Read Miss Gray’s account below:
“The gala began with a medley relay race; both our Junior Boys’ and Intermediate Girls’ teams won their respective races. Individual events then followed, where there were some superb wins from Evie Smith (First Form), Caitlin Calverley (Second Form), Rhys Harmer (Second Form), James Lloyd-Jones (Second Form), James Ellaway (Third Form) and Tobias Butler (Fourth Form). The Senior Girls’ also won their Front Crawl relay.
It was great to see such wonderful sportsmanship from our swimmers poolside; they all cheered for one another and there was a real sense of community amongst those who took part. Overall, our Junior Boys’ finished first, whilst the Intermediate and Senior Boys’ both came second. On the Girls’ side, the Intermediates won their competition, the Seniors came second and the Juniors finished third.”
Well done to all involved.
