District Swim Gala

STB entered the Newcastle District Swimming Gala on Tuesday 10th February. This is always a difficult competition as some school have swimming pools and train regularly, along with many club swimmers in other schools. Notably Greg Butler, from Clayton High School, is the national breaststroke champion and he is aiming for the Olympics in 2020. Needless to say, he broke the District record in his event.

The Year 7 boys and girls competed well and gained some 3rd place finishes in their individual events.

It is with great pleasure to report that Tom Litchfield won the Year 8/9 freestyle race and gained a medal for his efforts. Well done!
All swimmers were a credit to the school in their behaviour and attitude. Well done.

Team: Lydia Litchfield, Lucy Shenton, Lauren Johnstone, Chloe Myatt, Jessica Mollart-Price, Luke Campbell-Wilson, Tom Warburton, Tom Harrison, Dan Teague, Ethan Dale, Tom Litchfield and Sam Windsor.
