Last Friday 7h October the Academy Swimming Teams competed at the Regional Finals of the squad relays at Nottingham High School. Along with ourselves, regular National finalists such as King Edward Grammar Louth, Oundle, Kimberley College and Nottingham High were in attendance.
The calibre of this event is always high but it was definitely us that were setting it as other teams' coaches commented on our skill level and in particular our streamline starts and turns. This was a huge compliment and relayed back to the students with enormous pride.
We produced some fantastic team swims with some of them in with a chance of being a National Championship qualifying time - but we will have to wait and see as news of this will be mid-end of October.
