Our first Junior Gala 2013-4 series culminated on July 5th with a massive pool party and splendid tea (thanks to Jackie in the cafe) and an Olympic style medal ceremony. All of our youngsters showed marked improvements over the year, some scoring massive pb's which have really impressed and encouraged Mark and our coaches.
Our current Year 6 swimmers took part for the first and last time, as they will be too old to swim the 2014-5 series! So we wish them well as they move to BIG school!
Gold medals went to Matthew Cox and Noor Scothern; Tyler Moodley and Lewis Warner; Lottie Farley and James Cox; Lilly Cherry and Jamie Lodge; Ella Croft and Kris Moodley. Silver went to Arthur Dexter and Amelie Clayden; Maggie Briggs and Ben Curson; Becky Whittaker and Ryan Lang; Lottie Warsop and Will Parker; Hermione Blackwood and Will Halstead. Bronze went to Charlie Hopkinson; Mya Edwards and Ollie Wilson; Jenna Mariott and Tristan Teasdale; Amber Perkins and Seb Brett, Georgia Wilson and Fabio Medri.
The next series starts on September 28th and entry forms will be out at the end of August.
Thanks to all parents, officials and older swimmers who volunteered and so helped make these galas possible.
